    This week, Sparkling Apps submitted their 'Siri' type of assistant for all iPhones and iPads. We are still waiting for Apple to approve it, but meanwhile, please check this video, and let us know what you think!

    Initial price will be just 99 cents. Keep an eye on it..

    Search for 'Voice Ask' in youtube to check out the video.

    Voice Ask was launched last week for $2,99. It's a great alternative to Siri, especially for foreign accents, which it understands better than Siri, and it's knowledge base, which is stronger as well. Other functions are being added. And of course, it's available for all models iPhone, iPod and iPad, not just the 4S..

    Check it out now!

    I watched the video - pretty neat! Are there any plans to integrate Voice Ask with other task-based apps (Reminders, To Do, etc.) similar to Siri? As an iPhone 4 owner, I'd love a Siri-like experience if possible. Nice work so far!

    We will improve it further. The first step will be messaging and emailing functions, which should be included in an update early next week.
    Integration with other apps is limited by what Apple allows us, but we will add whatever functionality we can manage.
    For now, it is still more of a knowledge base than an assistant. It has information on a tremendous number of facts. In that way it is far superior to Siri, who doesn't even know who Steve Jobs is.. :-)
