    Default Best Siri like app

    that I've used so far is Skyvi. Not as mature a product but not bad. It talks in similar fashion as Siri albeit using a different voice. And it seems capable of learning.

    I did try that and . . . it did not work very well for me. I got a cryptic error message on about 50% of the questions I asked. It also requires more manual button presses than Skyvi does.

    Speaktoit by far the best for natural language.

    AIVC has been my favorite. It does a great job with English to German translations too.

    I tried one app that forced me to finish tutorial Im sending text. When it asked who to send I said "anyone" and the app pulled a random contact, someone I only knew on Facebook, and sent them my random text at 130am...

    Google Voice Actions. Just speak in very technical terms.

    Siri promotes "natural" speaking but Google's offering is just as functional. Plus, there is Majel.

    When speaking in a personally natural way the meaning is left to interpretation in which answers/results can become vague.

    I agree. I didn't use Siri much on my iPhone, well, other than when I first got it. On the HOX, I'm using Google Voice Actions more. Mainly for things like "navigate to x address" in the car or "find closest gas station".

    Check out Cyman in google play. Impressive! It is modeled after Jarvis in Iron Man! Still in beta but very good.

    There is also Iris. Works pretty well for me.

    Do any of these alternatives let you do the "remind me" thing? That's really the only thing I thought useful with Siri.

    AIVC will allow you to set an alarm for reminding you not sure about the others.

    I was using Voice Actions until upgrading to ICS and now I use the built in voice control. Wow it really works great. Another app to give you a ton of voice control over your phone is Tasker... If you like to tinker give it a try! Read more here!!!

    Yes, Cyman and Eva and Jeannie all do.

    Skyvi is def the best. The voice sucks on it so to remedy that all ya gotta do is download the Ivona Text-to-Speech voice engine. The voices and accents you can choose from are pretty sexy

    I use Maluuba, it's amazing. It doesn't speak back to you though but it's still the best in my book.
