Tronton today launched Cluzee, a talking intelligent virtual personal digital assistant, available now on Android mobile devices.

Billed as "Your Intelligent Personal Assistant" Cluzee uses voice recognition, voice synthesis, personal analytics, smart filters, and machine learning to help users manage all aspects of their personal and digital lives. Designed to save people time and money, Cluzee's customized interface talks and responds to voice commands, providing the user with services like day planning, a health planner, personalized restaurant and retail recommendations, a trip planner, social media monitoring, and a daily briefing of personalized digital information.

Cluzee is the first offering from Tronton, an emerging start-up based in Port Barrington, Ill. Founded by technology professional Ashish Patwa, Tronton designs intelligent products that help people make better decisions in real-time, and improve personal productivity.

"People are drowning in information overload," said Patwa, CEO of Tronton. "We don't need all of the information available, all of the time. We just need the right information at the right time, which Cluzee intelligently provides, making us more productive. Technology created the problem, but we're using smarter technology to solve it."

Many of Cluzee's features can be accessed hands-free, via voice recognition and voice interface so users can perform tasks while driving. Cluzee can read  email, reply to text messages, and give a daily digital briefings from local news and events, and deliver socially-filtered Facebook feeds and tweets, horoscopes, calendar reminders, health, and even package tracking. Services include a day planner (PDP) with calendar syncing, a health planner with calorie tracker, trip planner, Daily Brief, Friends Locator, Local Search Recommendations, and Social Filtering. Personalized recommendations and daily deal filtering is another feature.

Cluzee is available today as a mobile app for Android devices, for free download at www.cluzee.com.

Future generations of Cluzee will run in the Cloud and be accessible from all of a person's devices, including mobile phones, tablets, desktops, laptops, TVs and the Web.
