Two weeks after releasing a version of its Dragon Anywhere dictation software for Android mobile devices, Nuance Communications has released a version of the software for Apple's iOS devices.

Dragon Anywhere offers continuous, cloud-based dictation with no time or length limits, robust voice formatting and editing, and synchronization of custom features with supported Dragon software for PCs and Macs. Ideal for field workers, lawyers, social workers, public safety officers, and other professionals who often work outside of an office, Dragon Anywhere allows full documents to be composed, edited, formatted, and distributed via voice, directly from a mobile device. Completed or drafted documents can be shared via email, a cloud-sharing service like Dropbox, or as a note through Evernote, all by voice.

Dragon Anywhere synchronizes custom words and auto-text commands with desktop devices running Nuance's Dragon software. Workers who often dictate specialized words, phrases, and customer and product names specific to their businesses can add customized terminology on all of their supported devices, be it a PC, a Mac, or an iOS or Android device.

"We are excited to expand the availability of Dragon Anywhere to iOS, further empowering the mobile workforce to more easily complete time-consuming documentation and achieve greater levels of productivity away from the office," said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon, in a statement.

Dragon Anywhere is available as a subscription service in the United States and Canada on the Nuance online store, with multiple subscription options available, including a one-week free trial. Subscriptions range from $15.00 per month to $150.00 per year.

Dragon Anywhere is currently available in U.S. English and will be available in U.K. English and German on iOS and Android devices later this year. Dragon Anywhere requires iOS 8.1or higher (iPad 3+, iPhone 5+, iPad Mini 1+) or Android 4.4+ phones and tablets.
