Vokul, Siri’s new challenger on the market

When the iPhone 4S first appeared on the market everyone was enlightened by its features and stated that they must definitely get their hands on one of those devices.One of its most important features, Siri, surely made the difference, allowing anyone who possessed the latest version to use the iPhone only using the voice.  For not dropping behind previous versions, producers have come with a new feature resembling Siri available for the iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch 3rd generation and on all iPad models. We’re talking about Vokul that is always on his toe to help the user and it doesn’t need to be activated like Siri, one just has to say the magic words: “Hey Vokul”.

KulTeck, the producers have provided “the first and only 100% handsfree voice control app” especially made for iDevices.It surely comes in handy and it definitely helps users when driving or jogging.Just picture that you’re driving a car with the police in the zone and an urgent call or message must be sent so just call out Vokul and he merely does the job for you.Due to restrictions imposed by iOS, Vokul cannot give users a hand when it comes to reading messages out loud.Without no network connection needed, it can play songs straight from your iTunes library.

Also, for those that like jogging or are simply taking a walk in the park, Vokul can delight them with changing the songs from the media player or take commands like “faster” and “a little slower”.

KulTek has already made known Vokul’s next features and improvements for the next version and it gets even more interesting.
