Imagine if Siri or Cortana were real people; that is what Ooloo is all about
Did you ever wonder what it would be like if Siri was a real person, sitting at a desk with a Mac and a set of headphones, answering questions from around the world? That is what Ooloo is all about. Instead of a virtual assistant, you get a real-life assistant. Simply tap a button on the app, and leave a vocal message with the inquiry. When the Ooloo staff has your answer ready, you will see a notification icon pop up on your phone.

Available for iOS and Android users, the Ooloo app right now is free to install and for now, the service is also free. Fifty employees will be working around the clock. Simple questions will be answered in a few seconds, and more complex ones will take a few minutes for a response.

Ooloo will use web searches to answer your questions and says that it will do a better job than Google Now, Cortana or Siri. User data will be stored for 24 hours, including both questions and answers, although iDrive, the company behind the service, promises the data won't be used or sold to third parties.

No, seriously, IMO Cortana is the best because that's all I have to use!.. If your device can't use it then it's no good to you... Therefore Cortana is the best for me.

It's the best because you have no choice, If we can't use it, our phones are no good, So this makes cortana the best... Seems legit?

Yep! Seems legit... Not to bad to admit when Cortana is actually pretty good... If Cortana sucked then it would look pretty foolish of me.. But, Cortana could actually be the best, so that's the bottom line.

Yup This sounds pathetic: "Did you ever wonder what it would be like if Siri was a real person, sitting at a desk with a Mac and a set of headphones..... " Didn't they let them on the Mac to visit online-life-porn sites????

Huh, must be because of version number if anything. Because I have a lot of devices, and if its compatible with all of them, then you must have something really exotic.

I used the exposed module to fix the incompatible issue, and now it says, this is not available in your country. i need the APK, I'm not messing around with the Freedom app cause it caused a lot of problem every time i used it, i'll just wait for the APK

If you have to wait, it's not better than Siri, Cortana, GNow, etc

only for niche market I guess. the main problem would be the waiting time.
