My kids and I do a lot of texting. We are constantly sending each other little thoughts and comments.
I hardly ever use the keyboard anymore. Siri does my typing for me, and it works really well.
It occurred to me yesterday that someone should give us the option of voice texting so we can simply listen to the recorded voice instead of having to read anything. It would be so much better and safer for texting and walking, texting and driving, texting and biking, texting and shopping, etc., etc., etc.
