We have seen Speaktoit – the android alternative for Siri, back in October. With a rating of 4+ the Speaktoit Assistant version 2 is now available on iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S!
By coming to iOS, Speaktoit gives iPhone 3GS and 4 users (who can’t get Siri) the most complete virtual assistant available, and Speaktoit
will compete with Siri on 4S by offering newer capabilities. Speaktoit can do essentially everything Siri can.
HOW SPEAKTOIT IS DIFFERENT THAN SIRI:
- Speaktoit works on older iPhones, not just 4S.
- Speaktoit lets you customize your avatar, so you’re not talking to a faceless circle.
- Speaktoit can search maps outside the US
- Speaktoit can update your Facebook /Twitter/Foursquare
- Speaktoit adds new functionality often (Siri hasn’t updated since launching).
- Speaktoit speaks what it says (for example, if you search for weather, this is the difference: Speaktoit: “It is 70 degrees in London” vs Siri: “Here is the weather.”).
It’s currently available on the Apple App Store (priced at $1.99, but will be free to the first 100,000 people on Valentine’s Day). It’s also still free on Android.
