Willing to help beta test this. I work for USAF and my phone is everything for appointments our navigation when traveling.

Great stuff. Count me on for beta testing. Not sure if this is valid for utter!, but it'd be more than glad to make a Brazilian Portuguese tranlsation for menus and such.

Just logged in to give kudo's to the dev working on this. This is IMO the best way to integrate voice controlled actions on Android.

Great job!

Edit: I'm working on a home automation app for a specific system, and when the interface is ready I will incorporate it in the app.

Random question. Will this be open sourced? Is it already and I just missed it?

I too have tried all the Siri clones on the market and this one seems to be better. Good Luck and you are doing a great job!

I don't think it is, or will be, as the developer rightly wants to make some money for the hard work they are putting in and if it was open sourced people could copycat the application and not only flood the market but if those versions contained malware also damage the source products reputation by association.

That's a very strange thing to say while typing on an open source operating system, isn't it?

Open source != free (as in beer), and using the same source != using the same trademark. Copycats would be missing one major component, anyway: the developer. If I have a bug or a suggestion, I can't go to the guy copying someone's source, can I? I don't mean to type this to convince the dev to open source it, only to clear up the obvious misconceptions you seem to have regarding open source software. Obviously, the dev will do whatever he feels like with his software.

And, hey, it makes no difference to me either way, I'm still excited about the product! :)

Nope, not strange at all. Because an operating system is open source doesn't mean the apps need to be too. Google gets their money out of ads so they can afford to give android away but the app developers also need a way to profit from their work if of course they don't give it away

I don't have misconceptions about open source btw though, my point was primarily that if he makes source available then other people would be able to profit monetarily from his work and create an influx of competition which would of course mean less reward for his work. But sometimes I'm not good at explaining what I mean though I do try.

I don't think there are that many open source android apps that do well for the developer but if there are then apologies in advance.

Its just if a developer has written something unique or superior to similar applications and wants to make something from it then open sourcing it doesn't seem the way they do it.
