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.

I saw this in one of the website that I visited and I found it useful that’s why I also wants to share it to my friends and to all of you. I’m not aware that there is a software like this to track down a stolen laptop so I found it interesting and I went to its website to check how is it works.

Here are the features of LockItTight apps:

  • Your computer will consistently reports its location to your LockItTight account.
  • Computer will also report screen captures to LockItTight.com
  • You can choose to get a camera shots as well using your laptop camera (this one is amazing!)
  • Key logging or catch every single keyboard stroke and review them on the server
  • File tracking or retrieving your files from the lost computer before wiping them out.
  • LockItTight servers are hardened with all security measures, your data are encrypted with your account password known to you only.
 The temptation is now too strong for thieves due to widespread use of laptops and notebooks. We also have to admit that there’s also some negligence on the user’s part.
The Good thing is that this apps is free but you can only use the free version for one laptop. There’s a paid version for as low as $1.99 a month per laptop if you want to use the software for more than one laptop, you have an option to customize the settings in this version. For the MAC user, I sorry to tell you that this software is only compatible with Windows.
