Kung Fu Rabbits has released a new voice texting application for the iPhone. vText is available through the iTunes App Store for at a special holiday price of $0.99 through January 3.

Users can simply say, “I’ll meet you at Starbucks in 15 minutes”. The user is then able to see a proof of the message before it auto-sends to the recipient. If something is wrong, he can retry or cancel the text.

Users get unlimited voice transcriptions and can send an unlimited number of text messages to all U.S. contacts. Recipients are not required to have vText to receive messages.

Users can still type their messages if they are in a place or situation where they can't talk out loud. The application is fully automated, so there are no humans involved in the transcription process. Messages are sent from the user’s phone number @vtxt.mobi, so recipients know who the user is.
