Voice Assist Partners With TapFactory
Voice Assist has teamed with iPhone mobile app developer TapFactory to include a voice assist button on its TapFactory app's software upgrade.
The technology integration enables clients to use voice commands to dial, email, text, post to Twitter, and record reminders. TapFactory currently has 300,000 people using Contact (its speed dial program), 4 million people using Sticky Notes (its reminder program), and 20,000 people using TweetyPop (its 3D world for Twitter). Voice Assist will be available in Contact before Christmas, with the additional apps to follow shortly thereafter.
"Although Apple introduced SIRI, its voice-activated assistant, it only works on the iPhone 4S model," said Michael Metcalf, Voice Assist chairman and CEO, in a statement. “This left 30-plus million iPhones without a voice-activated assistant. Also, SIRI requires Internet access. TapFactory chose to partner with Voice Assist because we work on all phones immediately, and speed to market is important for them. Also, TapFactory chose Voice Assist because, with the press of one button, consumers can call, email, text, or post to Twitter, all without pressing additional buttons."
