Robin – Free Personal Voice Assistant for Android Phones

If you are one of the new migrants from iOS to Android smart phone, you may be missing SIRI – Voice Assistant. While there are numerous alternatives on the Android open market of applications, many users claim that the application called Robin, the Siri Challenger, can be considered indeed as valid replacement for SIRI, and in some aspects it even exceeds its common capabilities.

The application for Android Robin was created mostly for drivers so they may keep their hands on the wheel, while performing all the operations with their phones, which they normally do with eyes and fingers in other situations. Robin is your advanced personal voice assistant for local information, GPS navigation, communication and fun! You can ask Robin for directions and places, parking and traffic, your Facebook and Twitter news, gas prices and weather, reminders and alarms, text messages and jokes and much more - all hands-free.

You can even teach Robin a few things like your name, where your home or work is, and even your birthday for horoscopes. Do you want a male voice instead of the default female voice? No problem, you can change that as well.

If you like Waze, an excellent personal navigator, you would be happy to know that Robin uses Waze as the navigation program of choice.

Here are some examples of useful commands, which may illustrate Robin capabilities:

• Where is the nearest Starbucks?... Can I park there?
• Find Thai restaurants in SF... How about French?
• Find a burger place ... Does it have a good rating?

• Go to 1234 Lombard San Francisco
• Directions to Hollywood and Highland

• Where can I park?
• Find cheapest parking around Union Square... Anything closer/cheaper?
• Can I reserve it?.. Let’s go there!
