OneTok pulled its voice recognition technology out of beta and has launched The OneTok API to the masses. OneTok delivers voice recognition to any app on Android, Blackberry 10, or iOS. OneTok provides its software in a cloud based (SaaS) model.

OneTok puts developers first, freeing them to focus on providing a great user experience."
