In the recent release of Apple’s iOS5, a personal assistant named Siri was born. Android users always had a TTS (text to speech) function and was able to send messages by telling your phone to do so; but Android users never had an assistant they could talk to or even personally name. Now there is a new app on the Android market called iris (according to phonearena.com, stands for ‘Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri’). It’s intended to do everything Siri can do (answer questions, hold conversations, etc) so Android users don’t feel left out. Currently its in the alpha stage of development, but its fresh on the market so grab it now and try it while it’s still free! Link to android market.
