** CNET: "... Siri has breadth, but Robin has depth" ! **

Robin is your voice assistant for local information, GPS navigation, communication and fun! She'll help keep your eyes on the road and off your phone: voice in, voice out. Plus, she has more personality than Siri, Google Now or Cortana!

Users say: “After trying Samsung's S-Voice, Assistant, Vlingo, AIVC Pro, Iris, and Skyvi …Robin is the best voice app of its kind; clearly the best choice for drivers in need of information on the road.”
** Endorsed by TechCrunch, CNET, Wired, Lifehacker, etc. **

Ask Robin for directions & places, parking & traffic, your Facebook & Twitter news, gas prices & weather, reminders & alarms, text messages & jokes and much more - all hands-free ;)

Robin is a personal assistant that can be both useful and fun, constantly learning and adapting to you. She'll even call you whatever names you want! Just tap the microphone button, and Robin will be all ears. Even after launching other apps, Robin is still there for you - just "wave hello" twice in front of your phone’s upper edge (or brush/tap it lightly).

Compare to voice assistants and chatbots such as Siri, Nuance, Dragon Go, Vlingo, Evi, Voice Actions, VoiceSearch, SpeaktoIt Assistant, Iris, Skyvi and Google Now, as well as GPS navigation such as Waze, Telenav, MapQuest, Navigon, Garmin, TomTom, MotionX, Yelp, etc.

• Robin is currently in Beta, still a student. But that also means you can watch her intelligence evolve daily and even get to contribute a little. Come be a part of the experience!
• Gesture activation: normally, you just need to wave your hand twice close to the top edge of your phone. For best results, we recommend using the "double-brush" gesture, where your hand actually touches the phone lightly. Certain devices require specific tuning - we are working down that list as we speak.
• Permissions: Robin will never email your contacts without your knowledge! It does need a permission to access you calendar for reminders reminders, and to your GMail in case you want email narration – that’s all. The wording Google Play uses can be misleading.
• Trouble with a particular location? Missing point of interest? Any issue at all? For best results, give your feedback to Robin right from within the app, so we have more information to actually fix the issue ASAP. See what people say about our speed to address reported issues.

    Who needs Siri, when you have Robin! Robin is Number 1, Siri I would rank about a 7, with 1 being the best and 10 the worst. I have used siri and ROBIN. There is NO comparison, Robin wins hand down.
