Android Cluzee not yet a Siri competitor

Rather than just throwing up a quick "#BREAKSCLUSIVE: Cluzee brings Siri to Android!" post, Android Central's Phil Nickinson actually took the time to test it out, and while it shows potential, it turns out it doesn't yet show anywhere near Siri's polish on the iPhone 4S.

  • It's not quick to launch
  • It's crash prone
  • It's still struggling to parse voice
  • It's not quick to respond

Apple's had more than their share of downtime even in Siri's current, carefully caveated "beta" state, but inarguably they've gotten the basics right.

The one nice things about Cluzee, however, is that rather than simply being dismissive in monotone corporate-speak the way Google and Microsoft officials have been, they're recognizing the future of this technology and making a play for it. Maybe they'll nail it in a future update, maybe not, but they're trying. Let's see if Jellybean/Klondike Bar and Tango/Apollo follow suit.

No offense, but the voice used sounds like a crack whore on helium.

Good enough. Ship it. Hey, at least it isn't malware.

It sounds like Cluzee smokes two packs an hour while drinking coffee and rum cake. lol

Until their comes a voice assistant that is not limited by its install space, their will be no other voice assistant feature out there. What people don't understand is that Siri is constantly evolving and learning from you and other users. Thats why the results are not pre coded upon install but saved on Apple's servers. Imagine 10 years later from now, having all of the millions and millions of users using Siri and all their questions and requests saved and processed and used at our disposal. Revolutionary doesn't even come close.

riggs says:

well its the companies fault for releasing something thats not ready. First impressions is everything.

johncblandii says:

Need isn't the reason this was built. Some dev(s) thought they could capitalize on a market so they built it, same as when Siri itself started.
With that said...Cluzee needs work. lol

johncblandii says:

Exactly. Then add the fact it is Apple exclusive and BOOM(!!)...gold rush. lol
