We have seen many voice assistants for Android after Siri became such a sensation. Then came S-Voice in Samsung Galaxy SIII, with the ability to give Siri some competition. Now we have Robin, the new personal assistant app that is meant to help you while you are behind the wheel.
Makers of the app Magnifis says you can ask Robin for directions, local places, real-time parking, traffic info, gas prices, weather, your Twitter news and much more. You speak to the app and it uses Google voice search to recognize and interpret what you say.
The app is intended for drivers, which means you do not have to touch your phone and apparently, Robin offers a complete “eyes-free” user experience. We should say Robin is fun; she’ll learn your name, tell you jokes and things like that.
The app is pretty modest as well. If you ask Robin to do one of the tasks it cannot do-like set the alarm clock, text, or call someone – she simply reminds you that she is still learning and makes it sound like these features might be coming.
Magnifis says Robin is currently in Beta, meaning that it’s not perfect yet. But that also means that you can watch her intelligence evolve day after day, and even get to contribute to get upbringing a little.
Robin is the best option for you if S-Voice can’t help you out. Visit Google Play and download the app for free.
