Siri was better when it first came out for iPhone in February of 2010 and was also headed for Android until Apple bought it in April. Just because iDiots believe CrApple has the Mitas Touch, they assume Siri is somehow better now than it was originally now that CrApple's name is on it. Even the Woz will tell you, it's NOT! 

VLingo goes back even further in development (than Siri) and it is the only personal assistant that incorporates Google Maps in true Hands Free Voice Turn by Turn with "In Car" App. Siri pails by comparison just on this one feature alone. Where as soon as I dock my phone in my car it's a totally touchless interface and I don't have to split my attention between the road and my phone screen to read the map directions as you do on an iPhone. 

Apple will never have Street View either or even a close equivalent as Google Maps/Voice Turn by Turn/Street View are the highest quality developed map apps on the planet. It'll take years for anyone else to catch up.... if ever! 

The inner workings of Google's Majel has been in development longer than even Siri and reports are that it's an honest integrated attempt to marry a truly native Real Time OS intelligence into the Android itself from scratch. NOT simply an addon service to sell a phone that delivers little else and Siri is it's greatest feature... haha!  

But even voice actions goes beyond Siri in on device capabilities and features. Google's Majel will no doubt leave Siri sleeping in the park, delivering answers as if it's still got a newspaper spread out over it's head!!! ;-P

I have this app to but I like Speak to it assistant. You customize and Avatar and it answered most everything that was above for Iris to answer.And my Avatar knows your name and you can name him/her. It's really cute!

As per your suggestion, I installed Iris on my phone this morning. I must have wasted a good 30 minutes just fooling around with it. On of the most entertaining features are the funny responses to certain phrases. Are there any similar apps that let you add custom commands/responses?
