Sensory Cures Siri Envy for Android Fans

Siri is a powerful app built into iOS that has tight integration with the native apps found inside. It's activated by voice, and essentially acts as a "personal assistant" of sorts, responding to voice commands at the touch of a button.

Not that voice recognition is anything new for Android users, but something as powerful as Siri hasn't arrived just yet. But Sensory -- a California based company whose voice recognition software is used by companies like Motorola, Hasbro, Mattel and even Samsung -- is seeking to change that, with an app called Trulyhandsfree 2.0.

While it looks like they need some branding and naming pointers from Apple, their software is deemed no less powerful. According to an article by PC World, who quoted a mobile devices analyst, the best part of this software by Sensory, is that it is constantly on.

This means there isn't a need to press any keys to activate it, wasting previous time. It also has has highly accurate recognition software that can differentiate between commands, and conversations, so that it won't be accidentally triggered.
