This Android app does not currently have any videos
We couldn't find videos for this Android app. Can you suggest one (it must be hosted on YouTube)?

In my search for the best Siri-like Android apps this one certainly was the farthest from awesome. While it does have some neat features that some of the other applications don't have such as reading your Facebook or Twitter walls, it doesn't seem to have a grasp on the core features that I would expect from a voice recognition personal assistant. The first thing I tested was sending a text message. I told it "Send a text message to FirstName" and it replied "try sending mail to Dr. Wallace", now this is a little confusing because I don't know a Dr. Wallace and I certainly don't have him in my contacts. I also asked to send a text, not an email. The second test I did was to tell it to "Find the nearest Starbucks" and it did correctly translate that command and brought up a list of Starbucks locations. Where I live there is a Starbucks about 5 blocks away, but Skyvi brings up a location that's 2.5 miles away and one that's 1.6 miles away. Neither of these are the closest location (which does show up in Maps). The other strange thing is that it wants me to go to the one that's farthest away even though both that are listed in it's results are open. So if you're looking for an app that will read your friends Facebook wall out-loud to you, give this one a try. If you're looking for an app that has core functions that work soundly, you should skip this one until the devs work out the kinks.
