Sherlock had Watson, Batman had Robin and even Dr. Evil had Mini Me. It’s high time you got yourself a faithful sidekick to ease up you way to world domination. In case there are no friends in your circle who you might consider for the role, here are a few digital companions that will be honored to fulfill your every command.
24me is a free app that has recently become available to Android users. It would be perfect for anyone looking for a clear uncluttered interface and a simple selection of features. What the app does, is send you reminders of the upcoming events and activities by syncing to your calendar and social media sites, like Facebook. 24me is an easy way to keep track of all the places you are supposed to be at and the tasks that are expected for you. Do not expect a lot of extras, but what the app offers is plenty enough to stay organized and on top of things.
An app that calls itself “the Siri challenger” is an option that is difficult to ignore. Meant primarily as a voice assistant for the road, Robin promises to take care of everything, so that you can keep your eyes on the road and focus on your driving. There are lots of things you can expect from Robin: texting by voice, GPS navigation, local information, weather tips, traffic updates, Facebook and Twitter updates and even jokes.
Don’t be mislead by a strange-sounding name. Maluuba is a credible personal assistant as any other – and, according to some users, the best one out there. What sets this app apart from others is the interface: bright colours and clear tabs make Maluuba super easy to navigate and, thus can get you all the information you want much faster. The voice recognition on the app may not be as good as some of the other apps on the market, but unless you are looking for something exotic, the app should be able to get you and quickly find what you need. Use Maluuba to look for music, movies, restaurants, sports and everyday tasks like dialing numbers and texting.
Dragon Mobile Assistant
Dragon Mobile Assistant is an app that kind of brings it all together. From the interface to operation, there seems to be nothing wrong with the application and very little is left to be desired. The app works around the same principle as most other assistants, letting you use voice commands to get weather updates, make calls, look for things online, ask for reviews and more. Among the extra features, you have “create your own voice print”, which allows you to avoid the interruption from others speaking in the background.
Despite featuring a cute girl on the screen, the app is actually a powerful tool for getting things done. Be warned that during the installation process, the app will ask you for quite a lot of permissions – but this is because it will want to take on and manage everything it can. Making appointments, setting alarms, checking for updates and running searches – nothing is out of Assistant’s reach. One of the best features of the app is that does its best to get to know you better and remember your preferences, favourite places and services.
