Lightbulb [APP][4.1+][V4.5] Open Mic+ for Google Now


About Open Mic+
Google Now, Everywhere.

As featured on XDA, LifeHacker, SlashGear, Android Community, Android Spin, dotTech, AndroidInt'l, and more!

With Open Mic+ for Google Now, access all the commands from anywhere on your phone. Simply say "Okay Google" or wave your hand in front of the screen. Screen on, screen off Google Now will be ready to listen.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Google Now becomes more conversational as after a search just say Okay Google to start a new one. And even better get the answers to your questions while your hands are tied, or when you're on the couch, or in the car.

TOMORROW'S FEATURES TODAY
Everybody's talking about the new Touchless Controls features for the Moto X, but now any phone that is running Jelly Bean or higher can have the same experience.

SEAMLESS
Open Mic+ will run in the background and can be configured to start at boot so that it truly becomes part of the phone.

TASKER INTEGRATION
Truly automate your device by combining the endless command list of Tasker with the ease of access of Open Mic!

OFFLINE
Open Mic+ uses offline voice recognition which means less data usage and faster results.

100% FREE
We saved the best for last. Open Mic+ has no ads, no in-app purchases, and is free to download. So why are you still reading this? Try Open Mic+ for Google Now.

What I'm working on:
See the g+ page for more details! Also please contact me if you are willing to contribute. Experience in sound engineering is especially welcome!

Please see the g+ page for more details and for videos (Also follow to be notified of updates!): http://plus.google.com/112424215551484520138/posts

3.11:
- (Donate) Full Bluetooth support! Ask and receive answers with a bluetooth headset
- Complete rewriting screen on/screen off activation code which should fix some issues of Open Mic+ stopping "randomly"

- Updated Translations
- General bug/stability fixes


WHAT'S DIFFERENT IN THE DONATE VERSION
Hi, my name is Ryan Senanayake and I'm a Junior still in high school. As the amount of time I have spent on this project grows to more than 500 hours, I need to better justify the time I spend on development. The Free version will in no way be hobbled and will continue to receive bug fixes + performance/battery improvements, but from now on, new features will be added to the Donate version. It will only cost $2 and if you are not able to spend this, just shoot me an email and I'll send you one for free.

Great app! Currently testing on my GT-I9300. Screen-off mode works like a charm, don't really need to worry about power consumption because of my extended battery haha.

Is it possible to keep the lockscreen while in screen off mode?

Nice! but could you provide an option to switch it off too? Since this affects the battery, I'd like to run this just when I'm in my car and then switch it off after I reach my destination.

Thanks

Works good on galaxy s4 but screen mode off doesn't unlock screen when activated. I hear it in background but lock screen stays locked...

Unfortunately no, it seems that Google Now only works if the lockscreen is deactivated. But what I'm trying to do is only allow the user to use Google Now above the lockscreen and have to still enter the password to use any other apps.

You can use Tasker, AutomateIt, etc.to provide this automation, there are guides on the g+ page

The current ways to do this are pretty sporadic as the Android apis are bad. I'm focusing on the new speech recognition as it gives me more control, but after I finish that I'll work on resolving this issue.

Yeah sorry about that. You can download it on your computer, but not on your phone... Hey I'm an Android dev, not a web dev I know what I did wrong, I'll fix it tonight.
