It always kind of sucked watching the Siri commercials by Apple, seeing how a smartphone could actually interact with a human being, almost freaky. As an Android user, Siri or anything like it has yet to come upon our OS, until now.

Maluuba is the closest Android app to Siri, minus the freakiness. This app allows you to speak to it and it clearly picks up the question and provides a quick answer. You are also able to turn on location to find nearby shops and restaurants that you are in the mood for; if you don’t want to use your location luckily the app is still useful.

The Maluuba will help you to not only search via voice or text, but you can explore weather conditions, restaurants, the latest movies, enable navigation and a lot more to help you through your very busy day.

Of course enabling your location will make it a more intimate app, personalizing results to your local area, however the app is still fun and very informative, and that is why it is deemed the Siri of Android.
