Yep... It's called QuickVoice iP and it works! Spent last night testing and tuning it. I'm very impressed with it. I'm still trying to find the catch... $0.99 and it will transcribe 30 seconds of speech-to-text in under 30 seconds. It uses SpinVOX on the backend.

To assure this stays on-topic, I would like to point out my interest in this technology.

I like to write. My Newton is (was) a great tool for this. My Newton is now off-line due to an ancient ROM I've boot-strapped myself back to. I'm now dependent on my iPhone for replacing the functionality of my Newton. To Do's, Bills2Pay, notes and email.

Things I miss:
  Tap and drag editing
  Spell Checking my emails
  MacinTalk Text-To-Speech
  My stylus
  The color green
