Windows Phone Gets Siri Clone
[ Technology]

It seems that Android users are not alone in wanting to bring Siri to their devices. While Windows Phone users have built-in voice search capabilities – Bing Voice – the platform does not have anything like the functionality Apple brought to the iPhone 4S with Siri.

A new app in the Windows Phone Marketplace aims to change that. Developed by Shai Leib, Ask Ziggy is a free (and ad free) app designed to provide Windows Phone users with a Siri-like app for their own phones. The app – which deserves bonus points for the apparent Quantum Leap reference – has been generally well-received, with a 3.5 star rating (out of 5) in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

The app allows users to perform a variety of tasks, from finding movie trivia and stock quotes to checking weather and doing basic math. A video from the developer’s website is embedded below. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

    FYI, Android had voice commands LONG before the iPhone 4S.

      That’s absolutely true, but Android doesn’t have anything like Siri. Siri’s not perfect, but it’s a pretty big step in voice recognition technology. Besides, technically the iPhone has had Siri for a few years now: the original Siri app first popped up in the App Store in 2009 or 2010, if I recall correctly.
