Omega v1.2.6


Requirements: Android 2.2 and up
Overview: Omega will listen to your requests, answer your questions and act on your behalf
If you are looking for a voice controlled, virtual assistant, similar to Siri on the iPhone 4S, look no further.

Just by asking, you can make appointments, answer text messages, set alarms and reminders, call taxis, businesses and your contacts, check for stores, restaurants and bars around you and many things more.
Omega can also answer general questions, do unit conversions and knows quite a bit about our world. It will follow along with the conversation and react intelligently to incomplete input and contextual assumptions.

If you are getting "Server errors": Please update Google Voice Search in Android Market!
If you cannot hear Omega talking:
Please make sure that you have a text to speech engine installed! Omega will assist you in downloading this by clicking on "Check for TTS data" in the preferences(Press the menu button!).

Thanks to fully supporting Wolfram|Alpha, Omega is able to answer complex factual questions. No other app, not even Siri, will answer these question acoustically:

"What is the 30th Tuesday in 2015?"
"Who is the president of Argentina?"
"How many cups are five pound of lead?"
"Population of the United States, divided by total world population?"
"Who is the singer of Coldplay?"
"Heart disease risk of a 30 year old male smoker?"
"How many dollars are five euros?"
"Will it rain in San Francisco tomorrow?"
"When was the radio invented?"
"Who invented television?"

"What's the highest point in Canada?"

"What's the stock price of Microsoft?"

Omega uses the regular recognition engine from Google by default, as practically any app doing speech recognition on android. I find this to work very well, but this varies alot across different people and accents. You might want to try installing Vlingo and setting it up as the default recognition engine in your system settings. You might or might not find this to work better for you.

apk inside the zip, just unzip
