Thanks Blaster. I'll have to look into that. Because I have swiftkey installed that is the keyboard that pops up. It has a mike but that produces an audio clip, not text like the "ANY.do" app does. I am very new at this and maybe there is a setting I need to discover to make the keyboard transcribe what I dictate into text. I'm using an Android phone and though it has a slider keyboard it is still so much easier to dictate on it than type on it. ANY.do does a great job of that but evernote has so much more capability. That is why I am asking. At present I am leaning towards using ANY.do as my primary task app because of this capability. I have no problem paying for an app if it will do what I need.
