Evi Personal Assistant App Gives Android Users Another Reason To Forget About Siri

Siri may be the most familiar personal assistant around, but there are a growing number of personal assistant apps for Android too. Enter Evi– the “Ask Me Anything” app. Developed by True Knowledge Ltd., the app understands what you want to know and gives back exactly what you’re after. If you need to know where the nearest bank is, Evi can tell you. If you’re going out for dinner but can’t decide where to go? Evi can help with that too. Evi is a personal assistant who looks to evolve with the individuals it is assisting. In addition to answering your common questions, the app features the following:

  • Voice or text input – Chat to Evi in plain English and she will understand
  • Local information for UK and USA – Shopping, news, dining and more. Evi knows where you are and gives answers based on your location
  • Built in browser – No need to swap to a different browser, view web links within Evi’s app
  • A learning and adapting intelligence – Rate Evi’s answers to help her learn more about the world


Evi is available for free today for any Froyo 2.2+ user. You can hit up the Android Market or scan it to your device using the nifty QR code found below.

    You know the problems with this app, their servers and its rating in the Market, and yet you still shill for them? What were you paid for this sponsored post?

    Evi is a pathetic failure of an attempt to add a teeny bit of functionality to a generally useless Siri. (I own a 4S).

    The fact this is even posted is beyond me, I also agree with Goat. How much was talk android paid for this stupidity called an article.

      Talk Android was not paid any monetary amount for posting this. We’re simply reporting the news.

      PS we apologize that you’re an iPhone 4S user. We know it might be difficult to read this post on a 3.5″ display.

        That was harsh… also, I’m having no problem reading this on my 3.5″ display considering it has a higher resolution than my previous 4.3″ phone… as a group of techies, I’d assume you’d know that resolution makes reading text easier than screen size… but who am I?

    Evi is for the iPhone too :) I like how she looks. She works only half the time, but that’s expected since she barely started up or so I heard. I also read Siri had the same issues in the beginning (iPhone4S beginning).

    Evi is just terrible! too slow, and it doesn’t support setting alarms and such tasks. 

    “Iris” and “speaktoit assistant” are much better!
