iPod Touch 2G and 3G owners will require an external microphone to record dictations.
In response to your feedback we've added automatic housekeeping of dictations, which means you'll never have to delete an old dictation again! BigHand will now remove dictations 7 days after they're marked as complete by a typist.

We've also enabled rotation on all screens, so you can dictate to your iPhone upside down.
