Fast. Simple. Relevant. And ACCURATE. In a rapidly advancing world of new technology, these adjectives are no longer a luxury for mobile device applications. They are a mandatory prerequisite.
It’s no surprise that voice-activated apps hold a lot of promise as the quickest, easiest way to interactively engage with our mobile devices.
Assuming, of course, the apps can hear you properly, that you’re not resorted to shouting, and they don’t mistaken “together” as “weather.”
Even though the console wars of the 2013 holiday season have only just started, voice apps that are designed to make life as easy as possible (on what are supposed to be the most technologially advanced gaming platforms ever invented) are still far from perfect in accuracy.
So when searching this holiday season’s top mobile devices, how much of a factor does the quality of the voice app feature have in choosing your mobile device for information consumption? Do you have the confidence that it will accurately serve your needs, or will the frustration be too much? Would you prefer if the voice sounded less robotic, or do you barely use the feature?
How important are interactive voice apps for you when you’re browsing your mobile device?
