Apple's Siri has clearly convinced a lot of people to upgrade, or buy into the iPhone universe altogether. Apple's had no issues selling the iPhone 4S, and while there are a few slightly similar solutions for Android, Windows Phone 7 has largely been left out. But a revised version of Ask Zippy may get WP7 into that conversation. It's clearly no Siri, but the program was developed by a single person and is being offered for absolutely nothing. And for free, it's hard to complain.

The app enables users to accomplish similar text-to-action things, just like Siri. You can ask questions, send texts and do all sorts of voice-related tasks that are impossible without the app. WPCentral is reporting that a refreshed version will be on the Store in the coming days; the current version doesn't have the best of ratings, but you can see what's on tap for the new build in the video below.

Looks like it works pretty good.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Woah is this something made an individual developer or dev team or is this a microsoft endorsed application?

If its the former of the two then this is REALLY impressive
