EVAN Intern - Virtual Assistant is a helpful application for your device that does thousands of actions and operations for you, like reading and replying messages, schedule events and others several actions.
Once you say what you need, EVA lists the options based on what he has understood and you should choose the one you meant and he does it for you. There are many things he can do: reminders based on locations, actions based on times, different modes and other multiple features. In additional features, you can integrate it with Evernote, Home Automation Insteon and Bluetooth Headsets.
Whereas it includes hundreds of options and it can be extremely useful, the design and organization still can be enhanced, for now it's pretty chaotic and sometimes you need to wait for EVA to finish talking and that can be pretty annoying sometimes. Still, it's better than most other Assistant, this one has better options and features.
BulletProof is the developer of EVA and other similar apps. Of course he won't get everything at first but if you spell it slowly and wait for the options, it most definitely will help you do what you want. It's a pity that the free version only lasts for 28 days. On a different note, is it really necessary to have both masculine and feminine version of the same app? Are we really that sexist?
If you haven't tried it yet what are you waiting for? TRY IT NOW!
It's the only assistant that has a dedicated car mode and literally over a hundred more features than the rest.
Browse through the command list and you will see that it's no lie that EVA is the leader when it comes to useful features: http://www.eva4android.com/quickstart
This is a free 28 day trial version that has all the same features as the paid version.
EVAN is a must have app if you want to use voice to increase your productivity. It's like Siri but with so many truly useful functions you will wonder why it doesn't come standard with Android. It includes a dedicated Car Mode that is extremely useful if you want to use your phone while driving. It is the one application that makes your smart phone so much smarter. It includes a powerful Profiles feature that allows you to change loads of settings on your phone in one instant simply by changing the Profile. There are over 30 videos on YouTube (link below) that walk you though every aspect of the application. Take advantage of the free 28 day trial as you cannot possibly try it in a few hours let alone a week. Read the reviews to see what other people are saying and if you like it please tell your family, friends and co-workers.
Who should use EVAN? If you are looking for an application that provides hands-free operation of your phone then EVAN is right for you. If you are just looking for an electronic friend to chat with then please go with one of the Siri clones. On the other hand if you want a real virtual assistant that has extremely useful functions that will make your life easier then please give EVAN a try.

If you don't already have a third party text to speech voice that replaces the default Pico voice on your phone I recommend SVOX Classic.Download the Free SVOX Classic to demo the voices.
EVAN is English only. Please don't give 1 star ratings for not having your language.
The simple assistant is better than it.I had to repeat my name 8 times, it doesn't understood. And also, it don't do according to my commands.
T It just kept repeating the first part if u want me to keep it then you have to explain what to do
Evan was so extremely slow I had to wait over 30 seconds to say any command. I switched to the ivona text to speech engine to get a non robot male voice. That may be part of the performance problem. Was looking fir an app better than speaktoit assistan
This just kept repeating the opening line never would stop running had to delete it to get it to shut up, totally useless EVA OR EVE WHATEVER WORKS THOUSAND TIMES BETTER!!
He told me a text I received while with a co-worker..although funny ..it was inappropriate
I hate evan is retarded assistant if so much better. He's completely froze my tablet
I.just downloaded this app and when I selected the speak option, Evan replied with, "well my time is up with you. If you would like the paid version, please select that option below." And I didn't get to.even.use this app. I had to.uninstall. please fi
