“Connect to the sys. co. Have it reconfigure the shell metals. Use the gold titanium alloy from the seraphim tactical satellite. That should ensure a fuselage integrity while while maintaining power-to-weight ratio. Got it?"- Tony Stark in Iron Man.
Agreed that Tony Stark built the Mark One in a cave with nothing more than a box of scraps, you would all agree with me that he could have never created the famous Iron Man suit without the help of J.A.R.V.I.S, his artificially intelligent computer. Like in the comic books or the movies, a personal assistant plays a very vital role. With smartphones getting smarter by the day and the introduction of intelligent voice processing and search capabilities, getting information is a child’s play now.
As kids, we always wanted our own personal assistant that not only make our life easier but also be so super cool that it will give the other kids a run for their money. Siri did take things to a new level but then it is available only for iOS users. Among the several Android apps that tried to take on Siri on this awesome platform, the contender that really beats ‘em all is Maluuba.
Maluuba comes with an awesome widget that allows you to either talk or type your queries and get information in a jiffy. And the icing on the cake is the fact that you can speak to or type in as if you’re interacting to any other human being. For example, saying a phrase such as “remind me to have dinner with my sister tomorrow at nine pm will actually initiate the process of creating a reminder for the same. You will simply be shown certain details such as the date and the time and you can either edit minor details or just give it a thumbs up. Done! A process that would take you four to five steps in any calendar application is completed in just two steps.
You can explore nearby restaurants, check out upcoming movies, get updates on your favorite sports teams, view weather forecasts, listen to your device music, find out about local events, get an exact address on a nearby business, watch your stocks go up or even socialize using Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare! Maluuba is the dream of every student who wants to cheat in an exam. You can ask Maluuba any question and it will search the Internet to get you the best possible answer. Asking a question such as “Who was the first man on the moon?" will not only give you Niel Armstrong’s name but also several personal details, notable facts, personal relationships, and other such information.You can sync several calendars and get information on upcoming events. Even birthdays for your contacts and Facebook friends are displayed here to ensure that you never miss a date or take a beating from a friend for not wishing. This app won’t change you from a normal human to the Iron Man but it will surely help you manage your life better and get information on the go. Have fun with Maluuba.
So what are you waiting for? Follow the download button, to get this amazing app on your device.
Abhirup is our guest blogger on education apps and thought partner. He harbors certain thoroughly misguided self-impressions like he has a refined aesthetic sense (our website’s visuals are NOT inspired by his ideas) or that he has a deep baritone. However, we choose to ignore these as he sometimes comes up with good ideas notwithstanding the fact that they are articulated in confusing managerial jargon; perhaps explained by the fact that he is an MBA from IIM Bangalore.
