Whatever you want, she does it
EVA 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 she has understood and you should choose the one you meant and she does it for you. There are many things she 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 she 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.

EVA 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.

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 EVA? If you are looking for an application that provides hands-free operation of your phone then EVA is right for you. If you are just looking for an electronic friend to chat with then please go with one of the assistants. 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 EVA 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.
EVA is English only. Please don't give 1 star ratings for not having your language.
Was excited to see an update...hoped it would fix issue. After KitKat update, speaker would cycle loud just like a clock ticking. Sent email but no response. Sadly this "audio focus" update didn't solve. Will uninstall and keep using competitors apps...extremely bummed.
This is a great app and works very well with tasker
Emailed developer over a week ago about problem where you can't search diary/journal/expense report by year. He acknowledged that and said you can search by month and that should be good enough which means to find something in a previous year you have to do 12 searches! Or you can do a complete search but Eva doesn't return the year only month and day. Pretty lousy support. Still hasn't been f
I love EVA. Location actions, time based actions, reads and constructs email and SMS, reads and posts to twitter, google+, and Facebook, sets alarms and reminders, keeps a diary and task list, finds anything.
Sit down at the kitchen table one evening to the fun of working out EVA and the possibilities ...
When this app works it's great. Problem is it only works half of the time. And don't bother writing to the developer for help. I've written him 3 separate times and never once received a response. So this jerk charges people $20 for his products but won't stand beside them. Do yourself a favor and try a different one.
Better than siru :)
