+ By Speaktoit
Assistant is a speech-to-text virtual buddy that will help you out finding info and other stuff
Actually, you can ask her to Google anything, but that's just the tip of the iceberg, there's much more under the surface. It can answer you questions, find other info, launch apps, connect with various web services like social media, or just talk for fun.
It's fully integrated with Android OS: it can launch apps, get maps, search for images in your gallery, convert currency, look up weather reports... whatever you have in mind. Well, it actually can, however we've noticed some misunderstandings when you don't speak too loud or when there's environmental noise. At least that happens in the beginning. It seems that your assistant learns from your daily speaking and the more you talk to her, the better she will understand you.
You can customize assistant appearance: male, female, blonde, brunette, old, young... iSpeech provides their voices.
Although there are coming up lots of Siri-like apps, this is one of the best we've tried for Android. Recommendable.
The Speaktoit Assistant has been named:
★★★★★ New York Times: Top 10 Android App of the Year
★★★★★ Forbes: Top 10 Mobile App for Productivity
★★★★★ Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner
★★★★★ PC World: Best free Android apps of 2011
Your Speaktoit Assistant uses natural language technology to answer questions, find information, launch apps, and connect you with various web services (like Google, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Evernote, Yelp, and others).

This is an awesome app, synchronised my Facebook account, set reminder and search engine
Good start but needs a lil improvement
Glad I tried it
All in all pretty helpful. Some bugs in the voice recognition but I suspect that's more Google's shortcoming not the dev.
