Last October we were surprised by Iris, a cool app that’s supposed to be Android’s response to the iPhone’s Siri. And yes, that’s right–Siri spelled backwards is Iris. One of the things that this Android app can brag about is the fact that it was created just within 8 hours. Its claim for omnipotence may not be absolute just yet, but this app is definitely a promising one. It reached a million downloads in a very short time, an indicator of good reception from Android users. The reviews over at the Android Market and over the Internet have been mostly good, too.
You may already have some idea of what this app can do, given it’s a Siri counterpart. The app is indeed a voice recognition utility. You will be able to have a little chitchat with the app, which will try to answer all your questions by searching for information, mainly through Wikipedia.
This Android app is packed with many useful features. Its main aim is to let you have the ultimate voice interaction with your Android device.
The list of things Iris can do is not limited to the things listed above. The app can do more and you can discover them while using Iris.
The app is not yet perfect. There are many improvements that can be done with Iris. This is an understandable thing since the app is quite new. Iris is a feature-rich app, although not all these features are working properly just yet. Well, Siri is not yet perfect either.
As you can see, there are a lot of things Iris has to improve on. Many of the reviews would say so, as well. Good thing about this app, though, is that the developers are not stopping just yet. They are continuously making improvements with Iris.
Are you enticed to install Iris now? It is indeed an app worth a try. If you can’t take full advantage of all its features since not all are working properly just yet, for sure the app will have a way of tickling you with its funny answers to your queries. Do you interact with Iris on your phone?

Just asked who is the president of the US.
Answer: George W Bush is the current President of the United States.
I asked who is the president and gave me Obama. I started asking to many questions and said to me “I am bored and I don’t feel like answering anymore questions”…LOL.
Suggestion…is it possible that Siri is actually Iris spelled backwards. “In Greek mythology, Iris ( /ˈaɪrɨs/; Ἶρις) is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. She is also known as one of the goddesses of the sea and the sky. Iris links the gods to humanity.” – Wikipedia
Over the course of a somewhat lengthy and frustrating session, Iris gave me rather detailed erotic instructions in answer to totally innocent questions. NSFV.
