I'm quite excited about the personal assistant apps and the market in general because that's where cutting-edge artificial intelligence turns into practical stuff that can be used in normal life. To that extent, we've got a ton of personal assistant apps for the iPhone/iOS devices out there.

Siri really fulfills everything when it comes to smart assistance. However, we do know that there are alternatives and depending on your liking and requirement, they could be smarter than Siri.

Best Siri Alternatives: Personal Assistant Apps for iPhone

So here we go. These are some of the best personal assistant apps you can get your hands on right away.

#1. Google Now

Google Now iPhone App IconGoogle's omnipresence is kind of exemplified with this particular tool called Google Now: which pools data from various Google services that you use, including Gmail, Calendars, Maps, Search, YouTube etc. and provides information that it thinks you need right now. Google Now has been often made to compete with Siri and if you ask me, it does good.

Some of us do feel the Big Brother effect with Google Now running and monitoring things but if you're comfortable with it, this can be as smart a personal assistant app can get.

(Google Now is not an app but comes built right in with Google Search).

And if you want to spend some time playing around with it, the personal assistant will thoroughly entertain you with its witty answers. The best thing about the virtual assistant is that it will become even smarter once it knows your preference.

    While Google Now is pretty powerful and effective on things you want it to get done, I am one of those people who are not comfortable being in the Big Brother house, with Google monitoring my activities and selling my searches to advertisers.

    Great list, btw.

    As its good that siri is the smart assistant which can handle a lot of your questions and find out answers quickly, as its a initial app in the market so alternative apps are now developed with more features but the those all are not equal with siri apps, its the best means i don’t say other apps are have low features. and i too use the Skyvi app, SpeakToIt apps mostly. even your content s good regarding the smart assistant apps for free.
    previously i too went with some similar sites. but its sounds good!! hope to post more about these….i ll be in teach with these post activities.
