Iris is a personal assistant application for Android. The application uses natural language processing to answer questions based on user voice request. Iris currently supports Call, Text, Contact Lookup, and Web Search actions including playing videos, looking for: lyrics, movie reviews, recipes, news, weather, places and others. It was developed in 8 hours by Narayan Babu and his team at Dexetra Software Solutions Private Limited, a Bangalore (India)-based firm. The name is Siri backwards, Siri being the original application for the same use owned by Apple Inc., and stands for "Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri".
With the app, an Android user can just "ask" Iris instead of "Google-searching" for information. The developers claim Iris can talk on topics ranging from Philosophy, Culture, History, science to general conversation. However, Android users need to have "Voice Search" and "TTS library" installed in their phones for Iris to work. Among its features are voice actions including calling, texting, searching on the web, and looking for a contact.
