Robin: Android has a mobile assistant


Good news for Android users all over the world.

Software developer Magnifis released a voice activated mobile assistant for Android, called Robin.

Robin seems like a hybrid of Siri and Waze. Robin is a voice-controlled mobile app that was developed for drivers to use in their cars.

Just like Waze, it’s motion-activated that makes it easier for following distracted driving laws. Robin can also warn you about traffic and speed traps.

But don’t have high hopes yet, as this isn’t a Siri killer. Robin doesn’t have the ability to send text messages and play music. Robin is currently a driving companion. It can find parking and gas station prices.

What makes Robin good, is its ability to learn the drivers schedule or habits. Basing on those patterns, Robin provides relevant navigation and driving information.

Magnifis unveiled Robin last March. It is currently available for free at the Google Play store. Robin is still at the beta phase so expect a lot of glitches at first.

Some reviewers say that Robin doesn’t work on all Android smartphones. HTC MyTouch 4G, HTC Evo 4G LTE users can find it difficult for Robin to run on their mobile phones.

A free downloadable driving assistant is one hell of an upgrade for Android.

Hey Android user, care to try out Robin?
