Speak to Andy and it will give you directions, answers regarding regarding several topics and information about the weather
Andy is an Android assistant for your mobile that answers your questions regarding general knowledge, directions and weather. Additionally, Andy can send text messages and make phone calls.
Given its simple and clean design, you just need to tap on the mic, ask your question and wait for the answer to load. Andy worked extremely slow in our device and sometimes didn't even give us an answer. Other times, it just says: "I have no answer", which should definitely appear less often. If you feel it doesn't understand you well, you can type your questions instead of speaking.
A good feature that we particularly enjoyed is the People Asking option, which shows what other people are asking, which can be fun and provide inspiration for further questions. Andy was developed by 74 Technologies, being this one their only application in the market. We hope they can work on it, as it'd improve very much.

Andy is a voice controlled access to encyclopedic information on a vast array of topics. Ask anything. Andy covers culture and the arts, biographies and persons, geography and places, society and social sciences, history and events, natural and physical sciences, technology and applied science, religion and belief systems, health, mathematics and logic, philosophy and many other topics.
You can also ask about weather and time in any city, get answers to algebra questions, conversions, or simply ask any question just like you would do a search on-line.
To ask a question, tap the microphone button on the application home screen. Alternatively, you may give your device a little shake (this requires enabling the Shake Recording option) or simply type in your question manually to get the answer.
One of Andy's great features is its design to work with Bluetooth headsets (A2DP only, must pair with at least one device). Andy (using your Android phone or tablet) will recognize your voice and speech, search the Internet for the best answer, and read it back to you in a clear voice. The answer will also be displayed on your device screen.
Additionally, Andy can send text messages, initiate phone calls, give you directions and do distance measurements, time range measurements and a lot more.

Wont connect to me sound..
It really works
This app is cooler than bowties
FC right after I open the app :(
It was just as bad as s voice.
Use google search. It has a voice feature and will open maps or applications. Google search with voice is more like siri than this is. When andy finds a web result it just starts reading away...if its a long page with a ton of text the text and buttons will load slowly as it processes...but it starts reading right away before the buttons show up....you can't stop it or mute it. I wanted to kil
