    I too liked the idea of Siri and read your post, so I took your challenge! lol. After the initial install, I was pretty impressed, and I even asked 'Jeannie' (the initial name of the voice after the install) if she was part of Skynet. She replied that she didn't know what Skynet was, so I figured I was ok... (or was I? hmmm...) Anyhoo, after my first 5 minutes or so of having some pretty unreal conversations with Jeannie where I was even a little freaked out because it felt like I was talking to C3PO, I was very impressed. Shortly after though, I noticed some issues where it just felt like the Evo wasn't up to the specs required to run this app. Sense reboots every 1-2 minutes... no response from Jeannie... not able to wake her after I put her to sleep... etc. I can't say enough good things about the app, but I'm not sure that the Evo is up to the test. I would really like to see it in person running on a dual core with more ram!

    Thanks for the heads up! (btw: I don't think this is your app, but rhetorically speaking, what's with all the Bill Clinton love in the video? Almost creepy. lol)

    I'm amazed by this app... I actually had a long conversation with ALICE (google it) about the meaning of life, machine intelligence, and humor.

    Ask it "what sound does a chicken make?" (or any other animal). Be creative with your questions and try carrying on a linear conversation. And when you've had enough fun, say "close this application" (be firm...)

    Siri has nothing on us

    It is a very cool app. However, "shake" doesn't wake it up 100% of the time. I tried "hey phone" and it is a hit or miss when I turned on the "run app in background" option.

    I downloaded this app but it doesn't really work as well as it is advertised. Not really liking it much. I think I will stick with Vlingo.

    Shake to wake doesn't work on 2 different bionics. Secondly, I don't understand how to put this app to sleep. When I install this app originally about a week ago the shake to wake function worked just fine. I think an automatic update broke something

    How can you know shake to wake doesn't work if you can't get it to sleep?

    Just say "Jeannie go to sleep"

    I could never get it to work for me. While I'm driving I use voice control full. While I'm not driving I use Vlingo cause Vlingo doesn't support my Bluetooth.

    Jeannie is a lot of fun and also useful. It's great being able to say "Wake me up tomorrow morning at 5:15" and she'll do it. But her sense of humor is what makes it for me. Here are some real examples
    (And before you start in on me, yes I know these are totally nerdy questions):

    Me: "Who is better, Kirk or Picard?"
    Jeannie: Captain Janeway is the best captain!

    Me: "Will you marry me?"
    Jeannie: "Why don't you just download me instead?"

    Me: "Do you like sex?"
    Jeannie: "Yes, but that doesn't mean with you."


    Me: "I love to hear you laugh"
    Jeannie: (in Pee-Wee Herman's voice) "Heh-heh!"

    I could go on and on. But its hard to predict when she'll give you a snappy comeback or just give you a straight answer. I tried to upgrade to get the paid "cleverer" version, but apparently it won't let custom roms upgrade. "Buy and install" is greyed out in the Market for me. I'm running Liquid 3.2 on an OG Droid. Also I'm getting "low memory" messages but it continues working anyway. Haven't had it FC on me yet. Overall it's a pretty great app, and I look forward to seeing it get even better.

    I'm on a custom rom and upgraded no problem.

    I tried it (and Speaktoit) but I found a "lag" in Jeannie. Vlingo is faster - at least for me, but Jeannie is entertaining!

    I really like Jeannie so far. I thought it was pretty funny when she said she was from Heaven. Quite the sense of humor.
