    "I've used both Robin and Google Assistant in my car, and I greatly prefer the former. It's specifically designed for traveling on the road, and it boasts features like finding good parking spots and cheap gas stations that Google Assistant doesn't have. It's free, too!"

    "I thought this app would be better. They tried to make it like Iron Man but the graphics are really bad. The quality is just not up to part for what they are trying to do."

    "I can utilize this all day long. I was able to organize things during my work hours and get a bit more done in that time frame. I know I have a lot of issues getting things done during being on a call so this helps me perform some things on the side a bit."

    "Cortana is one of the best virtual assistant apps. She came built in with my copy of Windows 10 but you can also download the app from your phone. You can control her through voice commands and manage your schedule and calendar as well as more!"

    "The Extreme: Personal Assistant would be of great use as an app to obtain. When searching for the "best", however, some opinion and bias is evident here. I feel like there should have been more specifics involved. Such as, phone type, or purpose of assistant."

    "This type of application always tends to give problems with the diction, you always have to be very exact when asking for information, I think you should use a colloquial language, more direct, less words but I think that is still needed to get there, It seems a pretty good application, saving the fact of the diction, I hope there is an update for the languages, since it only seems to be in English, surely they will work on it, for the rest it gives you enough information of the place requested, a good idea would be that the application will answer you, without having to read it, but as a gps will answer you, I do not know if you already have the application."
