    Since the last update Iris is soiled with intrusive ads :( it was nice while it lasted.

    I think if they just made a paid version without the ads, it would be great. Uninstalled for now :/

    Have you had problems with Iris? I find that a lot I get an error saying can't provide service or something and it doesn't work. Are you guys using anything else?

    I jump between Iris and Jeanie. Iris it seems after the last update does not work as well. New data source does not provide appropriate responses. Jeanie at the moment seems to reply a little more on target. Funny thing is both seemed to have been better in older versions.

    I agree, Iris used to rock a few weeks ago and friend at work that has an iPhone told me to ask it "prostitute prices" and it came back with Nevada and starting prices for services, now it just says "I'm not a department store". Once I asked it "where is a good place to hide a body" and it said "If it's on A&E you didn't hide it well enough". I laughed my ass off, now when I ask the same questions it just says "Don't do things like that" or something stupid.

    I find Iris more amusing than functional. I think Vlingo or Skivi are much more useful.

    I use speak to it. Its awesome an it let's me get rid of that horrid voice for navigating an speech controls. Its very functional an my phone sounds like a posh British lady.

    I've tried all of these apps Eva by far is the most useful. It doesn't have the funny replys like Iris & speaktoit or Jeanne. But it handles tasks like creating app. Reminders, navigation playing music pretty much any thing you need to do. It also has a wake up mode where you just say hey eva and it comes on. Once you get over the conversation mode of the other apps they are pretty useless. I'm self employeed and eva helps me with my day to day a lot so if you are looking for a virtual assistant that is more functional than funny eva is what you want.

    Another thing I like about eva is it has location based actions like I can tell it to text Mike, I'm open at 10:00, when i get to work. And when I get to work it will text mike automaticly, I don't have to do a thing. Plus the updates an support team is great
