With all the recent buzz over using voice commands to complete tasks on your Smartphone we wanted to show you some cool apps that are very intuitive. So today’s Sprint App of the Week is dedicated to virtual assistant applications.
They are not quite as intuitive as M5 from Star Trek but they can help you complete tasks on your Smartphone a lot quicker. We live fast paced lives and our phones help us get through the daily grind much easier. We use our phones when we are on the go to check email, weather, search restaurants, listen to music and so much more.
What if you could check your weather by asking your phone? Or even ask your phone to send an email? How about if you could find out who won the 2011 World Series by just asking your phone and not having to type in a search box? Well you can with the introduction of voice-recognition applications.
So if you’re down with voice actions try one out and please comment and let us know what you think.
