Recently, a new Siri knockoff was launched into the app store, and Android Market. Bad idea. The knockoff called Evi($.99) had so many downloads, and concurrently so many people using the app at the same time (several thousand people) that the servers were overloaded meaning it has barely worked over the past few days.
That is coupled with the fact that it lacks a lot of core functionality you would expect. First of all, the voice recognition is weak at best, and works accurately about 35-40% of the time. The app cannot send messages like Siri, and has a very weak places section that is poor at sorting. You cannot make phone calls. There is no intergration with other apps. Until they improve this app it is a waste of money.
Right now it scores a: (1/5 Do not Buy). For cheap or free decent Siri replacements check out our other article here. Subscribe to our email list, or feed for daily Tech news, Reviews, and How To’s.
