"Skyvi, helping you find places"

Reviewed by / Dec 27, 2011

Talk to your Internet

Skyvi is another alternative for Android's Siri, a pocket assistant that answers your questions and helps you find directions and update your social networks.

The most popular features that Skyvi includes are finding places, getting directions, reminder when you're near a place, reminder of actions, telling jokes, accessing Facebook and Twitter and asking random questions. Skyvi understands you better than other similar apps, especially directions and reminders. With the random questions it's harder and it sometimes doesn't know what you mean so it's better to use it for the other features. For using the app, just tap on the mic button and speak clearly or tap on the options provided.

The design here is more chaotic, as it includes a menu with many options and hints of what you can use the app for. It's quick compared with the others and the directions feature is useful and works pretty well.
BlueTornado is the creator of Skyvi, their only app for the moment, a helpful tool that can tell you directions and remind you when you're near places. With more options and a better understanding, it should increase its popularity among Android users.

    I downloaded it and it doesn't work. It says no speach recognized. I saw a thread somewhere saying you must install a speech-to-text app. Is this true? I would have to say pretty crummy. Useless.

    The only downside is my cellphone isn't compatible with joyride so ads will stay there forever
