    So more and more apps are coming out for Android that claim to mimic or even outdo SIRI. The Andy app is just another one of these apps. We have reviewed other apps that use voice search technology. Andy seems to be more responsive than Iris maybe thats because its new and not as many people are pinging its servers? It also seems to provide more relevant search results and may even throw you a few comedic curve balls. Overall this app was fun to play with, but I would stick to the Free version for now!

    So far I've found that Android Assistant has been the best but I'll give this a look.

    Ill just hold the search button on my Razr instead. I don't need my phone to talk back in an annoying voice.

    I just wished we had a better voice for these apps. The Siri voice is pretty fluid and natural sounding unlike any on Android.

    John Hanson was the first president of the United States. This is a fact. He was the first president that was elected by congress. George Washington was the first president voted on.

    I have Jeannie, but I'll give it a try.

    UPDATE: Uninstalled it already. First time I opened it, it wanted me to install a Speechsynthesis Data Installer. OK, did that. Then when I opened it, it wanted me to install another Speech to Text app and Google Voice (which I already did).

    I was about to suggest the very same thing. Ivona text-to-speech sounds sooo much nicer than Pico.

    I have as well but none of them sound as fluid as Siri does. Well, to me that is.
