I guess this could be cool, but I can also use Fandango...without any assistance.

that app sucked. just download the new one or use your browser

@Lift_Off There is no Youtube app for iOS 6. Apple wants to get rid of as much Google apps as possible...i.e. Maps and we know how that resulted.

I know, so download the app on the appstore (they have a youtube app that google made) or use youtube on your browser.

lol google voice can only search that's all.. but SIRI can purchase tickets, give u search results and even have a great conversation with u, Open applications.. and much more...

You are incorrect in so many ways. Google's service is called Google Now not Google voice. And it does more than just search. It gives you scores to sports matches, directions, flight status and so much more. All unbiased comparison shows Google Now is superior to Siri.
But since you brought up Google voice I'll tell you what that is all about. Google voice provides free text messages and voice mail service. Also when you log into gmail you can call anywhere in the US and Canada for free. But you enjoy that movie ordering features. Sounds "revolutionary". I'm quite jealous.

Lol Google Now cant open apps.. cant even have a conversation.. cant even book tickets.. cant even ahhh.. they are more.. lol...
If u think google now can do this, ,prove it to me ... :)

It can't have a conversation. But that's a gimmick.
It does open apps. I'll open maps and navigation when you ask for directions, phone when you call someone, clock when you set an alarm, browser when you tell it to go to a webpage, etc.
I don't need to prove it to you. It's well documented on the internet. I just want to show you are not providing correct information and I think I've accomplished that.

You are using Siri for conversation purposes? God.. you are pathetic! Get out and have real conversations with real people, you loser!

Can't have a conversation ????

Due to SIRI voice search have come into Limelight, before that android dint have anything apart from SLOW OS... hahaha

Because Android hasn't had voice search since 2009. Accept the fact Google Now is better than your beloved Siri.

Google can give you search results and interact with you and your schedule/contacts. Does it have conversations with you? No, but to be frank, if you enjoy having a "great conversation" with a fake robot, that might mean you need more friends in your social life.
Does it open applications on command? No, but that's why we have widgets and our favorite apps to be accessible right at our finger tips. In fact, I could probably just touch to open an application way faster than opening up siri and speaking into it "open *name of application*" and then having it process and finally open. Just a touch. Even if Google were to implement such features in the future, I probably will stick with the manual option. Just my thought, but it'll be interesting to see how far apple goes with siri.

just because of iOS limitation ;)
see this: goo.gl/5KyIk
your Siri is really like a baby and will never be mature like Google Now is :)
and your Siri adjusts results to promote Apple's products.....so still do you trust Apple:
deal with the facts

Thats because Android users are smart and we know how to open and use our apps using "Fingers", which is faster. We dont need gimmicks. For those kind of gimmicks there are alternate options like S-voice for example. But no one cares.
Just so that you know - Unlike Siri, Google now does not just respond. Its biggest advantage is that it gives you intelligent updates proactively and automatically without any fuss or frustrating voice instructions.
Go to the airport and your online tickets pops-up. You get traffic & weather updates automatically when u leave home. You get the scores of your fav teams live and movie/show/music ratings automatically. Recommendation of places near by pops-up depending on which street you are on.
And many more. There are tons of stuffs and best part is you can customise these notifications the way you want to.
Ofcourse, you also have voice search options. Even in this department, Google Now is ahead in terms of recognition and results
Overall, google now is years ahead of Siri. Even PA says is a far more useful platform than Siri and or any voice enabled personal assistance available today

i agree with you syedzain....
siri can do everything but google doesn't ...
siri can give you any answer but google doesn't...
siri can appointment restaurant but google doesn't
siri can find out all sports result but google doesn't
siri can purchase movie tickets but google doesn't
siri can communicate with user but google doesn't
siri can support map voice but google doesn't
SIRI CAN DO EVERYTHING BUT GOOGLE DOESNT

I knew Siri had a lot of potential when it first released. Apple just has to make it faster and maybe improve voice recognition. Siri never really has problems picking up the words I say. Also, I think people want a more human voice.

Speak for yourself. I want Siri to sing "Still Alive" to me.

Use Google Now. It's everything you just described.
