How to Get iPhone 4s Siri Like Features on Your Android
By Steve McFarlane
While Androids have always had voice control, how envious many Android fans must have been when the Apple guys previewed awesome Siri voice assistant on the new iPhone 4s. Siri has an incredible ability to understand and respond to questions and queries in natural language
A team from Dextra.com came together to build a Siri-like solution and accomplished the feat in 8-hours. According to them “in no time, we added voice input, text-to-speech, also a lot of hueristic humor into Iris. Not until late evening we decided on the name iris.”
The name is Siri in reverse; it means “Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri”.
You can find an early version of the app on the Android Market. Use it to question your Android on any topic ranging from philosophy, to culture, to history, to science in a natural conversation style.
