    You can download the app on the Play Store. A buddy of mine sent me an invite to unlock the thing. Blows Google Now and S Voice away on this Note4

    I have been using it for a week. I thought Google Now was good. Hound is that much better.

    Unfortunately when you get the invite code, each one is only good for one device. The first code came in 24 hours and I've been waiting for the second code since Saturday..

    I'm having trouble sending texts with Textra on it but as far as speech,I just talk and it gets me. Now I've got to speak like it's deaf and English isn't its first language. Even then it's hit and miss. Hound understands my southern slang and accent. Scary understands like Swype beta used to do.

    That's just completely nuts! I'm downloading it now if I can get it.

    Does anyone have an activation code to spare?

    Do you have to tap the circle or can it be set to an auto function?

    Great question Jeffery, I wondered the same thing. Why would you want to use this one over Google if you have to tap it both before you ask the question AND after you've finished asking the question? That defeats the whole purpose of this type of app (or at least a large portion of it) IMO. Personally, I use Google Now because it's a "hands free" method and I don't have to touch my device, wake it up, turn on the screen, tap a button etc.
    Maybe this will change over time, or we simply weren't shown this feature and its already there?
    Looking forward to hearing what those of you that have tried it think.

    S5 tap'n
