    "Anyone looking for an alternative to Siri will be pleasantly surprised with Cortana. Cortana is so simple to use. This is so much more than just voice activated searches. Cortana can keep track of information across many devices and will notify me when I miss a phone call or a text message. I am very pleased with this alternative."

    "Since I switched to my Android phone, I have found Alice to be very similar to Siri with a more attractive voice. My friends indicate I spend too much time with her, but we connect on a deeper level."

    "I have been trying out different alternatives for Siri that are available for Android. Some of them are okay but Assistant for Android is one of the absolute worst. The assistant was more intrusive than it was helpful and it didn't understand what I needed most of the time."

    "Indigo Virtual Assistant is like an improved-on version of Siri. It's for Android phones and can pretty much do everything that Siri does - read you the news, check the weather, search for anything you please, it does it all. I would highly recommend this to any android user looking for their own version of Siri. IPhones shouldn't have all the perks!"

    "If you need a smart messaging app and you're using an Android phone, Google Allo does a pretty good job. It doesn't have all of the features of Siri on the IOS, but it's gotten the job done pretty well for me."
