Can we talk about this? Like, just for a quick second? This app is all of a sudden not just reading text back to you. But when you click on your Facebook tab. It's literally interpreting status for you. Such as (John Doe wrote a status about his dad) or (jane doe posted a very thought provoking photo today. Your friends seem to hold it in high regards. 20 of your friends liked it.) like what?
Literally it was a photo of a philosophical quote. How does the app know that? And the status was about his dad. But that was only one out of 50 words. How does the app know that?
Great start. I'm very interested to see how this goes when the kinks get smoothed out. I remember when Siri was just a rough app idea, and it was nowhere as good as this. And look at how apple bought out that idea;)
Finally got it to where it should be....
I have been with Winston from Day Number 1. I have also uninstalled it several times. I decided to recheck its current capability level and it's status... And I am happy to say that it is finally up to where I get the maximum amount of utility from it and it operates at a high quality level.
I use this in my car on the way to work. My U-connect entertainment system in my car plays the audio from my iPhone 5s... And I can catch up on things while I am driving. If it continues to function this well for the next update, I will stick with it. In the meantime, I urge you to give it a try !!!
Fantastic App! It's like a personal (slightly dumbed down jARViS)
Remember that scene in the first iron man movie where that reporter wakes up to JARVIS giving the daily report on the weather and news? Yea, imagine that in your pocket! Unfortunately there are many issues to be corrected, like voice quality. But other than that, this is a very neat idea! I like the fact that I can just wake up every morning, make coffee, and have the latest events that I'm interested in be relayed to me from the click of a button. It's like Siri 2.0. Or JARVIS 0.5. Great app overall.
