No longer will Android users be envious of Apple iPhone 4S owners and their voice-controlled smartphones now that Android has its own alternative version of Siri, Cluzee.
Cluzee, the new voice-controlled assistant service made by Tronton, hit the Android market on Tuesday offering Android users a Siri-inspired service.
Cluzee, however, offers some features that Siri does not, like managing life and make better decisions in real time. According to Slash Gear, the third-party app software can not only verbalize your schedule for you, but provide useful insight about how to conduct your day.
For example, a video promotion for Cluzee shows that it not only can remind you of a doctor's appointment you have in the middle of meetings and more meetings, but it can also help you get there the fastest by avoiding construction and traffic-heavy areas.
Cluzee also is personalized to cater to the users taste, based on past preferences and reviews from friends and others.
The personal assistant app also can be a personal radio with 11 channels offered, a day planner, a health planner to track personal health and fitness goals, a travel planner and a social networking assistant all through voice control.
People are drowning in information overload, Tronton CEO Ashish Patwa said in a statement. We don't need all of the information available, all of the time. We just need the right information at the right time, which Cluzee intelligently provides, making us more productive. Technology created the problem, but we're using smarter technology to solve it.
So far, the app has received mixed reviews on the Android Market page, with more than half of users giving it a one star rating due to the frequent crashes and taking up too much memory on their phones.
Great idea, good potential, but I had the application crash on me more often than I've had it work correctly. It feels like a beta version at best, wrote Android user Mark Edwards.
According to developers, a cloud-based version of Cluzee is currently in the works which will support any Android device, from phones to tablets, with WiFi connection capabilities.
Cluzee is available on the Android Market free of cost.
