Evi Might Outdo Siri And Google Search

I couldn’t yet upgrade to iPhone 4S from my iPhone 4, therefore I had not a chance to experience Siri.  Luckily, I found an article in regarding to how Apple would pull Evi off its App Store by TechCrunch, because Apple did not like how Evi could do similar things to Siri and do them well.  I went to the App Store immediately to see if Evi was gone from App Store yet, but to the sigh of my relief it was there still.  I purchased Evi for $0.99.  I tested out Evi and it was certainly a little nice app for $0.99.

People have been reporting how Evi’s true knowledge search engine may make Siri looks dumb.  So, I tested it out, and I’ve found Evi’s server to be super busy as it seemed to tell me that it had gotten trouble from getting a response from its servers.  Nonetheless, as long I tried again or few more times with the same questions, Evi eventually got it right by spitting out correct answers.  Of course, Evi could not hook me up directly to iPhone 4’s applications and performed tasks, but I think Evi could be a contender for Siri and Google!

Yes, this sort of apps might make Google’s search engine goes the way of the dinosaurs.  So, I think if I’m Google, I better create something that is better than this sort of things (e.g., Evi, Siri, Vlingo).  Get busy Google!

In conclusion, Evi is cheap enough and nice enough, I don’t regret of having it.  Perhaps, I might use Evi for stupid questions such as “Where can I buy a cat?” — even though I know I would never get one and yet I know Evi would give me the answer anyway.  That’s the beauty of Evi.  Evi would point me to several locations that Evi thinks I might find a cat of my liking.  How about this one?  “How do I make the best coffee?”
