IRIS – Voice assistant for Android is now available for free download
Many of us envy those iPhone 4S users probably because of its feature that’s gotten the most attention is the voice personal assistant app called “SIRI“. If you watch the video of Introducing iPhone 4S, you will see how awesome SIRI is, you can ask to read message, reply to a text, requesting to find a location or establishment and many more.
With million of free apps, Android is still the most preferred mobile operating system and more users are choosing Android powered mobile phones. IRIS – “Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri” – is an unapologetic nod at Apple’s wise-cracking artificial intelligence, an Android Voice Recognition App which is becoming very handy and useful.
IRIS developers have worked out a deal with popular instant answer engine ChaCha.com, which will now be powering the content that works in conjunction with Iris to answer questions asked by users. It will also get content from another faster content engine DuckDuckgo that uses information from crowd based websites like Wikipedia and Yahoo Answers to answer questions. You can ask anything like conversions, art, literature, history, and biology and mostly, it will answer with a paragraph from Wikipedia.
IRIS was developed by Dexetra for about 8 hours and its now available for download free of cost in Android Market. It can be installed in any Android devices with version 2.1 and above.
