Roobot Personal Assistant is a 3D chatbot that allows users to control their devices with voice or text

Using gestures and speech-to-text technology to manage our smartphones and tablets is trend. Actually, it seems that this will be the way to perform basic stuff in our mobile devices in the near future. Apps like Roobot made up the list of pioneers that use that technology and fulfill and important mission: get us used to this way of managing mobile devices.

Roobot allows us to carry out in a simple way most performed tasks in our mobile devices. Just use voice or text to indicate what you want and Roobot will take care of the rest.

Thus, with Roobot you'll be able to take notes and send e-mails, set alarms and reminders, update status on Facebook and Twitter, send SMS and make calls, mathematical calculations, money or metric conversions, weather info and many more. Actually, since Roobot brings in-app browser you can easily search the Internet. Likewise, it comes with built-in "Stored notes" app which is really useful to write down memos without leaving the app.

Besides, the app is highly configurable: you can set volume, different Roobot's voice and voice recognition language (only English and dialects so far). In fact, Roobot appearance can be set at your whim: body size, skin and dress.

Roobot is set in 3D graphics, good-looking layout and user-friendly interface. It's easy to get the hang of it. There are just two catches to mention: first, it should include more languages for voice recognition; second, it should be enhanced regarding voice recognition accuracy. Despite of this, Roobot climbs to the top positions of Android personal assistants. Don't get stressed, Roobot will do it for you.

Give you local time in any city in the world (What time is it in Tokyo)

And many more

Roobot learns new things every time you talk to him. If you are not happy with Roobots' answers, you can teach him/her new things and override his memory(Hint: Maybe what Roobot should say when he hear your friends names).

You can stop the live background by enabling power save mode from settings. You can create your own Android type Roobot bye choosing the appropriate green dress and adjusting the Roobot size.

You can also personalize your Roobot in any way you want. Roobot comes with 25 dress options.
You can choose one of the 7 different accents in English including; UK, USA, Australia, South Africa, India, Canada, New Zealand.

Now Roobot has 5 different backgrounds and capable of telling you latest space weather. (Yes Roobot is your last defense before life on Earth comes to end.)

If you want to compare Roobot to other voice command tools like Skyvi or SpeaktoIt Assistant. Just ask them not to do something. For example "don't send email".
