    the new voice recognition for searches is great. i get better results using it than with siri. but it don't open apps, send emails, or texts.

    all in all, apple needs to up its game.

    sup scat? :hw:

    siri has been good and it's a totally different app overall than google search's voice search, but in terms of internet search results, the google search one is better than siri.

    Mine always sucked, I was in Portland and asked it where the nearest Wells Fargo was and it said in St Helens which is about 30 minutes or so away.

    Mine works great, no problems yet, I only miss the feature where you can actually see the house you're going to when you type it in.

    The app is even more awesome on Android. iOS doesn't have anything like this.

    It works in the background and when you pull it up, the stuff is already there without you having to search anything.

    This is the current version, they're constantly adding new commands and features.

    Still, I would consider it totally worthless if I couldn't 100% rely on it. It's a navigation app for christ sake. I don't want it to send me into some ghetto or area 51 or some shit. Some of the errors in there are downright dangerous.
