Siri isn't all that helpful when it comes to doing stuff you actually want to do on your iPhone, like search Spotify for example. But a voice-control app called Vela can fill that void.

What does it do?

It's a voice search app for Spotify and Rdio that lets you pick songs or entire albums and plays them automatically.

Why do we like it?

Ever tried to change songs on Spotify while you're running on the treadmill? Good luck because it's not so easy. Vela is a simple tool that sniffs out the song you request and starts playing it immediately. And it's fast. Just be aware of your fellow gym rats listening into your private DJ sesh.

Anybody know of a good equivalent for Android? On my personal line, Spotify is something I cannot do without. (Use Muve Music on my work line, best carrier-exclusive service ever). I've been listening to Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob" on repeat since it came out yesterday and it'd be really great if when it stops I yell "NAOO!", it would actually start playing again.
