This is a free version of ANDY (Voice Assistant).
ANDY is an intelligent personal assistant, knowledge navigator and voice control software designed for Android devices (phones/tablets) with the fast growing user base (hundreds of thousands users & almost 50 thousand paying customers).
Andy can send text messages, initiate phone calls, give you directions and literally answer pretty much any question you throw at him. It covers most of Wikipedia information, but you can also ask about weather and time, get answers to algebra questions, do unit conversions. It's smart enough to answer questions even if English is not your first language, it's design to extract the most relevant information.
To ask a question or to give a command, tap the microphone button on the application home screen. Alternatively, you may give your device a little shake (this requires enabling the Shake Recording option) or simply just type your question manually to get the answer. Andy will recognize your voice and speech, search for the best possible answer and read it back to you in a clear voice. The answer will also be displayed on your device screen with additional details, including videos, urls and more description you can read if you feel like it.
Additionally, Andy also works with most A2DP Bluetooth headsets.
Just to name some of its voice features: - Ask any question - Call anyone in your address book - Send email messages by voice - Text message by voice & read your latest messages - Get celebrity and famous people info - Movie and Music questions - Open installed Android Applications - Control Android features and functions - Browse Internet using voice - Use calendar - Get coordinates and location details (down to an address) - Currency conversions and live exchange and stock rates - Word definitions - Covers device hardware details - Get directions to a nearest place (restaurants, stores, etc) - Supports distance measurements (from one place to another) - Query live flight status - Ask about coming holidays - Provides interesting facts (science, medical, etc.) - Support for live gold, silver, platinum and palladium spot price - Ask any math related question - Translate any English word or sentence to over 60 languages - Play music on your device, etc.
You can even teach Andy your name, set alarms & wake up times, set reminders, get sport results, get sunset/sunrise (for any city), get date and time in any world city, calculate restaurant tips, and more... You can even ask questions such as: 'Do I need an umbrella?', or ask Andy to how to spell words.
