    "I need the best virtual assistant apps for those who don't have actual assistants. Who says that a robotic voice and cold hard steel can't replace actual people. Well with this app the line gets more blurred every day. Unluckily enough though, I could not find a web address for the device I was looking for. "

    "A half priced Amazon Echo similar device, the ivee Voice delivers some things Echo type customers would desire. If the features you need are not included, well, half price is too expensive. A crowd funded product that seems to be a bit of a risk to this reviewer to become vested in."
