With some other novel changes in iPhone 4S at the time of release there was one called Siri, the digital personal assistant app. Soon people got their hands on it and found it little less responsive as it was advertized by Apple. The fact has been played up by the company to some extent but still it serves its cause in a reasonable manner.
Samsung Galaxy S III has brought another app of such kind that Jobs, if alive, wouldn’t have admired at all. The S Voice is another take of South Korean company to copy the innovative path led by Cupertino. It promises sort of functionality what Siri offers such as updating you Facebook status and posting comments, sending Tweets to your pals, making calls, sending text messages, setting reminders, all by using your voice merely.
Jumping into this new market segment is LG, it has introduced Quick Voice app offering alike the features as of the two mentioned above. It will be rolled out on LG Optimus series of smartphones.
Siri has matured its market to an extent whereas its two rivals are newly born and it is a market niche which has not gained the expected popularity since last October when iPhone 4S was release with Siri. People look happy using their hands to perform the tasks which these apps offer to do by voice commanding them. They don’t want to look fool in the crowd.
Future can be brilliant, especially for Apple’s Siri, since it has move to the next level as it has been announced on the iPad as well as its maker is in talks to have this technology integrated into cars. A hands free experience to turn on and off many things is really futuristic.
