Top 10 Best Free Siri like Apps for Android

Siri is the most recognizable mobile assistant there is. Unfortunately it is only available on iOS devices. But thankfully we do have best Siri apps for Android which indecently are just not called Siri. You get my point right? Apple is overly protective of its mobile assistant. The best Siri Apps for Android are the ones which help you in your day to day life. Like driving to work, calling cousin on his birthday and making a presentation on time.


A good mobile assistant should be helpful while remaining non-instrusive. No one likes a nosy assistant right. Almost every app on the list tries to be that compliant nice assistant except for Robin. Robin wants to drive you home by herself. Anyways combine these great apps with a To-Do list and a Notepad and you will not forget anything in your life.

Note: All of these apps were tested on Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.4 Kit Kat except Dragon Mobile Assistant. The Dragon assistant was tested on Asus Memo Pad HD 7 running Android 4.2.2. All of the apps performed well.

    Pocket Assistant

    Pocket Assistant features a full 3D modeled virtual assistant which reacts to your questions and inquiries. Although this feature makes the Siri app for android look a little cartoonish, it actually adds to the interactive-ness and immersion. There are 4 characters to choose from and you can also change their appearance. From alarm clocks to using Google Maps, all is handled quite nicely. The app tries to give a human face to the virtual assistant and somewhat succeeds. The animations could use a little work and this is the only reason it is at second place. The free version comes with IAPs and ads.

    The paid version of Pocket Assistant removes the need to buy voice packs and outfits via in app purchases. The app will have almost $19 worth of content unlocked from the get go. Apart from that, there is not much added in terms of usability and utility.

    EVA – Voice Assistant

    Eva is a good Siri app for android but it has a very cramped interface. Eva also has the tendency to sometime read very quickly making it hard for a non-English speaker to understand. But it has the best feature list and is quite reliable. This Siri app for android is not only fast but provides ample guidance. The interface may be congested but Eva takes the time to explain everything in the lengthy tutorial. And to be honest, the tutorial is a must if you want to take full advantage of the app. The free version of Eva is basically a 28 days trial.

    The paid version of this Siri app for android removes the time limit. The free trial version already has access to full features. Nothing substantial is added to the app in terms of usage and features.

    ANDY (Siri like Assistant)

    Andy is a great Siri app for android with its simple to use interface and no hassle results. Andy is an intelligent personal assistant who is an excellent student companion. Searches regarding history, science and even religion are displayed almost instantly. The app also displays text and continues to read it to you. We highly recommend Andy for those who like to refer to Wikipedia for homework (we don’t endorse plagiarizing though). Nothing is off limits with Andy, technology, mathematics, logics. Philosophy and everything in between can be accessed with ease.

    The paid version of Andy adds a lot of new features into the already robust offering. The most important feature or the lack thereof is the removal of ads. The ads are quite intrusive in the free app and the paid version really improves productivity and usability.

    Top Assistant

    Top Assistant is nothing like Siri but nails the assisting thing well. You won’t be speaking to this app in anyway and will still require manual touch for doing stuff. This app comes into play when you are doing multitasking on a daily basis. For example if you are updating a spreadsheet and need to do quick calculations, you can launch the calculator via dedicated on screen button provided with Top Assistant. Dialing numbers and searching contacts or emailing the test results will be come magically easier. You don’t need an expensive Samsung smartphone to multitask either; this app will work with almost every Android device.

    Robin – the Siri Challenger

    Robin is a light weight and compact digital assistant app for Android. The app is extremely fast in booting up and becomes ready to use in no time at all. The app also comes with a peculiar interface which makes it seems low impact too. Tap on the icon and the app will pop up with a transparent background which shows you your app drawer. This can be a little distracting for those with colorful and eye catchy icons on their drawer. The app performs well even in light traffic. Standard features are all very well implemented, but texting is really something special. The app can recognize a lot of different accents as well.

    Jeannie

    Jeannie is a good Siri app for android, the concept and the tech is all great. From calling and dialing to texting via voice, this app has it all. Simple phrases will allow you to make changes not only to the app but other apps as well. For example if you want to set the alarm clock to 7 am on Friday, all you have to do is say “wake me up at 7 on Friday morning” (Best alarm clock apps) and the app will take care of the rest. So why is it placed so down the list? For one, the app has limited features in the free version. You will have to pay $3 in order to access the full version. Secondly we are not fans of the overly blocky interface.

While there is no exact Siri app for android, many come close and apps like Assistant even surpass it in some regards. So impressed were we with the top virtual assistants in the list that it took almost eight hours to complete the testing.  From asking knock-knock jokes to asking them for a dance, we asked a lot of weird questions. We also traveled with the assistant turned on. To be honest, the top Siri app for android, Assistant will fill the void of virtual assistant perfectly. We do hope to hear from you; better yet, we would like you to visit the site by using one of these great apps. You might also be interested in calendar and email apps to help you stay organized along with your Siri app.

    Hey buddy, nice collection!
    But I think cortana (Windows phone) is much better than any of the android voice assistants and even Siri.

  2. Ramana on

    Siri for iPhone revolutionized the behavior of the people to promote them self for a virtual assistant at every time with you!
    As your article shows a clear view of the Siri apps for all android and iPhone users. good to see such posts.thanking you.

    • Dani on

      To me, I’m ok with google now. It integrates all data and give me details when I want it. I expect lot of update on this from google.

  3. deuce on

    hey, this is a pretty good article, but you guys really need to invest in an editor. if you can’t afford an editor, one trick is to send articles to each other to proof read. if you guys can’t catch each others mistakes, then you really should invest in an editor because it’s really hard to be taken seriously when you have basic grammatical and formatting errors. not trying to give you guys a hard time, again, good article, very informative, decent writing, and engaging, but i found myself tripping over some of what you wrote. just a tip.

    • Dani on

      Deuce
      Thanks for the tip. Let me know where you find mistake/errors. It will help us to improve.
      Once again thanks for the suggestion.

    • Tiera on

      Hey Deuce,

      You may want to check your own errors before you throw stones. Try capitalizing once in a while.

      • Dawn Tibbett on

        That is too funny. I was thinking the guy needs to get a life instead of critiquing others hard work and great advice. I didn’t even notice his caps. Nice response to his comment.

        • robby on

          Exactly right there giving out great day to read opinions better part yet their getting paid for it who’s the dummy hmmmm.lol and no theresr nothing proper about my English

    • lee cameron on

      Indeed Deuce’s critical analysis of the columnist’s occasional improper grammar and punctuation it’s laughable!

  4. Ted on

    Thank you for your article! I had a couple of issues with Assistant being a little delayed with the responses, but after reading your article, I think I’ll stick with it. This was really informingand I appreciate you taking the time to do it.

    Will Assistant – Free work with old Android OS such as the Android 2.3 Gingerbread? If not which is best for the Gingerbread?

    • Dani on

      Tom,
      I personally haven’t used Gingerbread in almost 3 years. And to be frankly honest, I don’t have a single device running on Gingerbread. The apps were tested on Jelly Bean. Although you can try running the top apps yourself, many of them support Android 2.X 🙂

  6. Esumanuel on

    It’s actually the best review/ranking I’ve read about assistants. Great job!

  7. Paula Sigourney on

    The assistant is horrible. She doesn’t understand anything I say. I tried to get to email to emails that are programed into my phone but she can’t do it. Frustrated. That is the main reason I need it. I have RA and my hands and wrists hurt a lot and fingers and that is why I am looking for an assistant. I work from home but need to be able to email clients and others in my office.

  8. Russell on

    Which is the best assistant app for an Australian accent that will allow me to put appointments into Google Calendar?

    • Judy on

      Hi Russell,
      I think that the ones listed shouldn´t have a problem with an Australian accent. Let me know which one you try out. =-)

  9. jaye on

    assistant free version has no voice recognition… in fact.. voice recognition isn’t even listed in the features list… suffice to say that would be one of the most important features… you have to purchase the premium upgrade in order to get this feature… and your article doesn’t tell which other app has it or doesn’t…

  10. cynthia Sharpin on

    Is there an app that lets my iPhone FaceTime my daughters android?

  11. tmp on

    What about all of the information that the Assistant has access to on your phone? How is it all protected?
