"An excellent app - Editor's Choice from DroidAppOfTheDay.com/2012/11/#1173437722159198564"
For considerably less than the price of an espresso drink you can text, phone, 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:
Place phone calls
Find nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and other places
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
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.
Cognito uses Google Licensing technology to help prevent fraudulent use and copying. Purchased copies may only be installed on a single Android device.
