    With all the talk of 'Siri' -like apps, what is the best one to use - skyvi, vlingo, jeanie, robin, speaktoit, ...others?
    I tried skyvi and it seems ok but it always stays on. What's your recommendations?

    Been using Speaktoit since my D1, it has about a 75% overall success rate in understanding what I say and performing the correct action. Plus, you can customize the voice to male/female and British/American accent.

    Does it work hands free- call, text, read incoming texts, navigate or stream radio? I had skyvi but I didn't like how it wouldn't shut off. It worked well overall but I would like something that I could turn off without force closing all the time.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I've used it hands-free with all of those except radio streaming (i.e. Pandora), which I can't vouch for. And it shuts off well enough - I just say "Goodbye Sam," and she says something like "See you next time," and shuts down.

    So far I've tried skyvi, robin, speaktoit assistant and vlingo. Vlingo seems the best and has the best ui. I'll keep looking at others.

    Not overly impressed with any, but I didn't really like Siri when I used it either. Has problems understanding my accent at times. I can cope without.
