With Nokia’s latest flagship device, the N8, safely in our hands, it seemed like a good opportunity to test the company’s updated Own Voice app. Tying in closely with Ovi Maps, it allows you to record your own directional commands and use them in place of those dull default voices.
After an extremely easy setup process, you’re asked to save and upload your recording. In a neat touch you can then make it available to other users, and even use theirs. Although I don’t know if I’d be happy putting my road-safety in the hands of a “Battlestar Galactica robot”.
