Nuance’s Dragon Go Voice Action App Hits The Market Stuff Get’s “Siri”ous
CES isn’t just about hardware and new toys to play around with it. It’s about software too and Nuance is using the wonderful platform that is (was) CES to launch what is quite possibly the best voice action app to ever be released on the Android platform. Nuance is no stranger to voice apps and their Dragon Voice Apps have been around for ages on a number of platforms.
So what exactly is Dragon Go? Well its a app that gives users voice control over 200 different applications and content providers. Dragon Go uses websites like ESPN, Amazon, Twitter, Wolfram Alpha and etc as sources for your voice commands. The app also tells what apps you have installed that it can control immediately and starts you off with a great tutorial that goes over the plethora of potential uses for the app.
Want to buy something on Amazon: “Buy Call Of Duty”
Want photos of something ask: “Photos of (your request here)
Need a Restaurant or Restaurant Review ask “Reviews of Ruby Tuesdays” or “Find Italian Restaurants near me”
What else can it do basically more of the same with Fandango, Spotify, Bing or even the music on your device. Need general knowledge it will use Wolfram Alpha to tell you the square root of some ridiculous number or who the 38 th President of the United States was, the Weather Channel for the forecast or ESPN for the latest sports scores “GO STEELERS” (LOL). More good news folks its free and you can grab it right here in the Android Market. I’m going back to playing with this thing so later folks…
