While at with windows phone blog we cover only Windows Phone related products, we do admire Apple products. Siri is one among many of other products we would personally like to appreciate. Since the birth of Siri, many developers have been hankering to imitate the functionality of Siri and port it other OS or app. Although, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of Siri clone available on Android and iOS platform, none of them came even close to Siri. Siri surely deserves venerate than any shiny big trophy.
Cora for Windows Phone
In the past, an attempt to bring Siri like functionality to Windows Phone received huge round of applauds. Ask Ziggy does an exceptional job, but it still lacks that sting. It would be interesting to see what future holds for us. Ask Ziggy is passing through major revamp, hence we should expect a better integration in next version.
Cora is the new kid in the making. Cora, a Windows Phone application based on Nuance voice recognition technology, is in its early days of development. The developer has uploaded a video of the app unveiling some promising new features. Since you’re curious to know more, Cora can understand the following commands at the moment,
- Command List: Enlists all the commands
- Define: Defines a word
- Flight: Flight information
- Google: Google Search
- Search: Bing Search
- Stock: Stock prices
- Update name: Update the current username
- Wikipedia: Search Wikipedia
- YouTube: Search YouTube videos
- Weather: Get current weather condition
Cora is yet to be released in marketplace. There is no ETA available at this time, but we promise you that we’ll bring the news as soon as it is released in the marketplace. So far, Cora looks promising, but it has to face tough competition from Ask Ziggy developer, as it can perform more functions than Cora does. Of course, Cora can tell you jokes to kill your time.
