Google and Bing let you speak into your iPhone to search for what you want instead of typing text. That was a wonderful breakthrough and easier to do than henpecking at keys. Now I found an excellent, useful, similar but more powerful app that I am enjoying to the max. It is called Siri. It is an extremely powerful voice recognition tool. You may carry on a conversation, using the same thread of conversation. For example, you want to go to a shopping mall in West Palm Beach so Siri brings you up a list of malls in that area. Then you decide you want to shop elsewhere so you tell Siri, "I changed my mind, how about a mall in Orlando?" Siri understands and will look there instead. Siri then provides you with a display, "Ok, I'm checking," while getting your answer. You don't even have to input your zip code if you are searching within your home area as the phone's GPS automatically picks that up. Siri provides you with options such as Save, Share or Map along with a spot to make your Notes. It couldn't be simpler. All you have to do is speak in English (no shortcut sentences necessary), and Siri gets you the answers. In fact, Siri is your personal assistant and helps you accomplish many tasks in a shorter amount of time than browsing the internet one web site at a time. If you need a table for two at your favorite restaurant, Siri can book it for you. If you need a taxi to get to that restaurant, Siri will call one for you! It's really amazing. Siri is built for the iPhone 3GS (though it works fine on 3G - make sure to restart phone after installing, and it works only in the U.S.) I used this app today for simple tasks such as getting Thursday's weather, finding a PG-13 movie in my town, and finding a restaurant that served pizza. Siri delivered (no pun intended) every time! My recommendation is to grab this futuristic, free app while it's available.

"There's a new way to get things done. Just ask Siri to book restaurants, movies, taxis and more."
