Please ignore the comments about Contacts and Weather not working as version 3.0.4 fixed the problems these users encountered.

For considerably less than the price of an espresso drink you can text, phone, tweet & Facebook friends, get movies listings, sports scores, news headlines, set reminders, remember things, and more, ... hands-free just using your voice!

Cognito provides the benefits of continuous speech recognition and synthetic speech to do things for you and provide information even while your screen has dimmed or is in sleep mode. It's the only truly hands-free and eyes-free voice recognition assistant on Android, making it ideal for use on the road, in bright places where you can't see your screen, and wherever and whenever your hands are tied.

What makes Cognito different from other voice assistant apps like Siri, Vlingo, Assistant, and Eva, is Cognito never requires that you tap an icon to speak, make screen selections, or look at the screen to see results. It simply tells you. Cognito continually listens for your voice, responds when you've spoken, and learns and improves upon recognizing your voice.

Say things like "Where's the nearest grocery store?", "What were yesterday's baseball scores?", "Text Ben: I'll be there in 5 minutes.", "What are the top movies?", "Call Fred", or "Remind me to pick up my laundry at 4 o'clock today." without ever having to press a button or look at your phone.

With Cognito you can hands-free:
Send texts
Place phone calls
Tweet on Twitter
Post on Facebook
Find nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and other places
Set reminders
Remember things
Make appointments or create tasks
Get baseball, basketball and hockey scores
Movie show times and theaters
Local weather or in any city
Stock market quotes
News headlines
Airline flight information
The location of your car or anything you designate
Get word definitions
Convert units of measure or currency
Do simple calculations
Get the time or date
Hear jokes or wise sayings

... and more features are being added all the time.

Cognito sounds best with natural voices such as those offered by IVONA. See our FAQ link at to learn how to download and install synthetic speech engines for your phone.

Cognito uses Google Licensing technology to help prevent fraudulent use and copying. Purchased copies may only be installed on a single Android device.

    Why does the Mike keep beeping every 4 seconds while it's running in the background? Other than that it's good.

    This app almost does the job but there are some tweaks that would really help. First, it defaults to the mobile number of a contact. There is no way to call or text a secondary number. It would be very helpful if that were added. Second, this is not a one stop for all voice control app. You cannot do navigation for instance. There are some things that I would rather control with my phones vo

    Its a great app but having it always listening and beeping on everything i say is a bit annoying. Maybe add a sleep/wake up phrase so that it wont make noise unless u call apon it. If it had that it would be on a path to crush some of these other assistant apps. Great app to start though!1
