    Edwin is a speech-to-speech voice assistant and accessibility utility. Uses speech recognition and text-to-speech together!

    You ask a question, such as "What time is it" or "Where's the closest movie theater" and it responds audibly. I just starting playing around with it and it seems pretty cool.

    I just downloaded this and it's pretty impressive. It'll do everything from opening paper toss to opening facebook to calling anyone I ask it to. I'm very impressed.

    Installed this app on my DX and It was pretty cool... The only problem I had was it locked up my other widgets and I was having to remove and replace my widgets like beautiful widget and facebook to get them to update... I didnt have this problem until this app so I uninstalled it and problem gone... Will be a great app when all the bugs are gone...

    I've tried it, and while it can start applications (unlike Google Voice search), it really runs into a wall when names aren't actual words.

    I have played with this a little. I think it is a cool idea, but it is frustrating if it does not recognize what I am saying. It looks like it is processing and then nothing happens.

    it's a cool app. i don't use it much other than as a cool demo for my friends.

    it's a harbinger of what's to come. as the technology gets better - voice to voice will get more powerful and useful and commonplace. this is the future!

    I think that, primarily, these apps need to become more accessible. For example, if I could simply say "Edwin" or "phone" and the app would become active and listen for input, the process would be streamlined immensely. This would require a background process, but I don't think that would be very resource-consuming. '

    Of course, the speech recognition engine needs improvement, but that is the case with all functionality of this kind at the moment.
