Jog on Cortana, get on out of here Siri: GEOFF is in town

Posted by Rob Rich on February 5th, 2015

In this exclusive video from AppSpy, James Gilmour puts GEOFF - the Gaming Entertainment Online Fact Finder - through its paces.

Will it change the way gamers discover new titles and learn more about the games they love? We certainly think it has the potential, what with its uncanny ability to retrieve information on a wide range of topics, the ability to communicate with its user and, yes, even learn more about the world around it.

Voice Activated Unit Conversion From Convert Gold

I'm a big fan of voice activated technology. Not just for the futuristic feel of being able to speak at a device but for the potential mobility benefits for those who aren't as physically able as they would like to be. Convert Gold, rather than changing anything possible into gold (if only), enables its users to make unit conversions by speaking at the app rather than tapping the relevant buttons.

Supporting 12 different unit types, Convert Gold might not be the most comprehensive of unit convertors but it offers all the most important ones comprising of angles, area, energy, force, length, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, volume and weight. All the user has to do is speak measurements such as 'Tweleve feet in inches' or anything else they can think of in a similar style and the app should provide the appropriate response.

Give it a try today. It's out now priced at $2.99.
