From the moment the iPhone 4S was released, personal virtual assistants resembling Siri began to spring up like mushrooms, just like Evi, Vokul and Speaktoit.
A Vietnamese team has recently come up with a new personal assistant that seems to look like Siri, namely Sara that works on all iOS devices. Producers describe it as being easy to use, easy to customize, easy to teach and always free. Sara goes even further with its features and beside setting reminders and often making irrelevant conversation it can be taught and trained to acknowledge new orders.
Sara is worth being mentioned because of its availability in other countries than the States and only after a month’s development it provides support for 37 languages. We wonder if it would manage to uncrown the famous personal virtual assistant Siri in the nearest future.
Siri is not the only personal virtual assistant that chuckles over success. The iOS platform has been dealing with other applications such as Vokul and Evi.Now, Speaktoit, Andorid’s personal assistant is also available for Apple’s operating system.
Last updated in February 2012, the application comes with improvements in voice recognition and in calling performance.Speaktoit is available for both iPhone and iPod and allows the user to choose whether the voice should be male or female.The display could switch from a blonde to a brunette pretty face to a good-looking agent or a sage professor.
The application provides the possibility of connecting to social networks like Facebook or Twitter for always keeping in touch with buddies, look for places on maps, send emails, get latest data about weather report, search for news, read out loud agenda and so on and so forth.Anyone can get Speaktoit straight from App Store for only 1, 59 €.
