    Robin - AI Voice Assistant's review

    Published: 2015-08-07, by .

    Robin is a voice recognising assistant. And not many are as useful as this one.

    • Great design and feel
    • Really efficient
    • Near-perfect transcriptions
    • You'll have to download the voice packs

    "An amazing assistant for your smartphone"


    If we were looking for an assitant with voice recognition, we'd get this one. Robin works fantastically. We love its design, and above all, the ease at which it transcribes our words and runs the correct tasks. Without doubt, it's a really useful tool and it works really well. Download it now, you won't regret it!


    Robin works like a personal assistant, and you can ask it questions or give it orders. The best thing about Robin, apart from that it answers your questions, is that it lets you activate some features and open apps. So, if you say "Text Jenny" the messaging app will open up, and if you say "find a restaurant nearby" you'll get some on a map. You can also ask for traffic info and get real time updates. The things we like best are; its design - which is really clear and clean, and how well it transcribes words. It's really practical and useful. We're sure you'll love it.


    We didn't find any issues. The only thing you should take into account is that in order to use Robin you have to download the voice pack as well. Luckily, it's a small download and you'll soon be up and running.

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

    Robin, by Audioburst, is your voice assistant on the road, bringing you texting by voice, local information, GPS navigation and even jokes, while keeping your eyes on the road. Voice in, voice out. Plus, she has more personality than other voice search products, assistants, chat bots or messenger bots. Robin gives your smartphone a smarter character.

    In order to decipher, analyze and adapt to voice commands, Robin sends your voice commands to its servers.

    ** Endorsed by TechCrunch, CNET, Wired, Lifehacker, TechRadar, etc. **

    Ask Robin for directions & places, parking & traffic, your Twitter news, gas stations & weather, reminders & alarms, messaging 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. Or, "wave hello" twice in front of your phone’s upper edge (or brush/tap it lightly).

    • Robin is currently in Beta, still a student. That 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.
    • 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.

    Submit feedback on our UserVoice page:, or say 'feedback' right in the app. You can also contact us on Twitter @robinlabs, or on Robin’s FB page!
