Evi Is One Of The First Siri Competitors For iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android

Siri may finally have a competitor on her hands, and this new competitor goes by the name of Evi. Now, when you first used Siri or even heard about Siri, you probably thought to yourself “who could out-do this magnificent piece of technology?” Well, It looks like the folks over at True Knowledge may have released a Siri clone dubbed Evi that could actually be smarter than the all-acclaimed personal assistant Siri.
The reason why Evi is currently being labeled as a true Siri competitor is because of its world-wide support and smarter algorithms for finding information. According to TechCrunch:
Install Evi on an iPhone 4S and compare it to Evi. Ask “How do I make apple pie?”. Siri is unable to provide a direct answer and so asks whether you want to search the web. Evi provides a list of recipes with web links.
Ask “Who was President when Queen Elizabeth II was born”. Siri is unable to provide an answer and suggests performing a web search. Evi determines who Queen Elizabeth II is, when she was born, the dates when she will have been a teenager and then compares this against which US presidents were in office over that time, delivering the results of both serving US presidents during those years. Not bad huh.
Evi uses the same Nuance voice recognition technology as Siri does, but does have one drawback — it cannot launch or interact with native iOS applications like Siri can. Even though Evi may not be able to fully match Siri’s capabilities, she still gives Siri a good run for her money.

If you are interested in downloading Evi to your iOS device or even Android device you can download the application from the Apple App Store/Android Market for $0.99 by using one of the links below.
