    Price has now been permanently reduced to $2.99 only. For this you get lifetime unlimited access to the ever expanding wolfram alpha database and you will benefit from any updates to the robot interface or the artificial intelligence improvements. Get it now :)

    I wish she was "skinned" at least. haha. I prefer human like rather than robot like assistants. Pretty awesome step in the right direction though!

    Update launched! Fixed some issues, improved speed and stability, and added wikipedia as an additional knowledge source (priority will be given to wolfram alpha).

    Check it out!

    Fun program, but I have one pretty big issue with it. I called someone without intending to and almost texted someone as well. I need the option to disable this program from calling or texting.

    The sentence I spoke that triggered the call did start with the word "call" - but I was using it in another context. I was telling it to call me by my name to see if it would. I'm the dummy who did it, but still, one mistake could be costly.

    I almost sent my doctor a pretty embarrassing, not quite accurately voice-analyzed, text message as well. It analyzed what I said incorrectly and setup the message, instead of searching the web for whatever it was I'd asked it to. That would have sucked haha. It prompted me to send it to him and I said "no" - very carefully......h-e-l-l n-o-!

    I ended the accidental call quick, but it still went through it turns out. So ya, I think there needs to be a toggle, or an optional prompt, or else I'm afraid to use this :(

    Talking about the full version by the way. Neat program, with some clever and funny "I don't know the answer" answers ;)

    Hi schplurg, thanks for the feedback! We are taking the remark about enabling and disabling the ability of voice answer to communicate to external users along in our update program.

    But even now, as you found, you still have to press the 'send' button to actually send the messages that Eve creates on your behalf.

    We have submitted a new update this week and are continuing to improve its performance. If you have any more comments, please pose them, so we can take up any issues.

    The latest version has just been accepted by Apple an hour ago!

    You now have an option to switch voices. Also, the voice in the app has been made fully consistent.

    We have ironed out the iOS6 issues, now all commands work fine, even setting reminders works perfectly now. Check it out! You could always try out the free lite version first.
