Siri One Line of Code Away from Android

by: JoseNovember 21, 2011

Imagine, Siri running in an Android device. Do you think it’s possible? It might be. The iPhone 4S’s “personal assistant” may be easy to port to Android devices, if findings of a reverse engineering effort by Applidium prove to be true.

Applidium, a company that specializes in mobile software development, found a way to reverse engineer Siri. And, the devs are giving out all the necessary tools to port Siri into different devices for free.  Gizmodo actually believes that only a line of code is keeping Siri from running on Android devices.

How did Applidium do it?  The software developers from Applidium just played around with the fact that [...]

by: Matthew SabatiniOctober 24, 2011

The newest feature to hit smartphones is, as I like to call it, the imaginary friend feature. Now, you never have to talk to anyone again–evar. Your phone can do it for you. But, seriously, let me give you a little background about this new feature:

And, so, in this post, we discuss six of the “most-coveted” iOS 5 functionalities that many Android users don’t know are already within their reach.

Voice Actions for Android vs Apple’s Siri – Will the Better Software Please Speak Up?

by: Ronald UyOctober 13, 2011

Voice-activated software has been around for quite some time now. So, to be genuinely excited about any of these, someone must have done something right.

However, the problem with these types of programs is that you have to talk in an almost robotic tone to make them actually do something. This could be frustrating even for an English instructor and even harder for us who don’t possess flawless communication skills.

How Does Voice Activation Work?

Apple Flattering Android by Imitating Android’s Voice Actions Feature

by: Matthew SabatiniOctober 5, 2011

Apple's Siri Voice Commands

At its meeting today, Apple released one key piece of iOS 5 that was not much talked about before–Siri.  In April of this year, Apple had acquired Siri, “your personal assistant,” for somewhere around US$100 to US$200 million.

Recently, I expressed my thoughts about iOS 5 in an article about the top 5 features that iOS 5 copied from Android. After this morning’s announcement, you can chalk up another point for [...]
