Google launches rival to Siri for iOS

Google's advanced search has been on Android since the launch of Jelly Bean, and now Google is bringing it over to iOS to compete with Apple's voice assistant, Siri. The app for iPhone and iPad offers voice recognition that enables Google to understand what a user is saying. Users can launch the app, and tap the microphone to ask things such as flight information, event times, directions, almost any question thanks to Google's Knowledge Graph, and even requests such as "Play me the trailer for the latest Bond movie" and "What is the weather like in London?". The app also gives the normal Google results below the information a user asks for.

The app is avaliable now for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch right here.
