view story

http://techcrunch.com – Robin, a virtual assistant application for Android that’s a bit like KITT in app format, is out with its first major update since its public beta launch in June. Not meant as a Siri clone, Robin is focused primarily on assisting users while driving – that is, it helps keep their eyes on the road by offering support via its voice and gesture interface. Robin currently offers navigation, real-time traffic, parking and gas info, local search, and more, and can also narrate your tweets, Facebook posts, emails, and SMS messages. It can even tell you jokes, if that’s your thing, or (IT news)
