There was a hype back last year when Apple launched their Apple iPhone 4S's Siri.

Then Android come out with Iris, a reverse spelling of Siri.

Windows Phone have "Ask Ziggy" developed by Averotek that works the same of being able to answer questions, web search, calling, texting, e-mailing and as well updating status on Live Messenger, Facebook or Twitter.

"Ask Ziggy uses Speech Recognition to translate human speech into transcribed text, which is displayed in a speech bubble. The transcribed text is analyzed for patterns to detect commands or general queries. Commands are interpreted and routed to routine phone tasks such as emailing, texting, calling, social network updates, and getting directions.

When a general question is asked, a mixture of mash up technologies and web scraping is employed to search the web for relevant responses. Pattern matching is used to summarize a direct answer from a web page. Several passes may be required to find a concise answer. A direct answer is then spoken out loud, and displayed in a speech bubble. When a direct answer cannot be summarized the user is prompted by speech to click on their search bubble to see web search results based on their spoken query."

This application is completely free and contains no ads.
