Video: Impressive update for Ask Ziggy (iPhone Siri for WP)

| March 5, 2012 | 9 Replies

I rarely if ever do Windows Phone app news, reserving app talk to lumiappaday (as there is  too much in the way of app news on WP). On Friday though, I did notice a really interesting video that shows quite a significant and important improvement over one of the apps we demoed – lumiappaday #51.

Ask Ziggy has undergone a facelift and now has a huge tonne of new features, as demoed by WPCentral.


Voice commands aren’t for everyone but if you wanted it, this is a great app to install. Lumia do have their own set of excellent voice commands by default. Reading txt is often used, as is voice command to call and start apps. I would love for Ask Ziggy commands to be added – if at least just to nullify the advantage of Siri.

There are so many new features that there’s quite a hefty instruction set that tells you what commands you can initiate. You can set your own nickname so it knows what to call you (like siri) and you can tell it to make reminders (like siri) but you can also do various additional commands that Siri doesn’t do.

Some very excellent work by Shai Leib!

    • Jay Montano

      The video published on Friday mentions it should hit the market in the next few days so some time this week I guess.

      Regarding WP app news, I might leave other update stuff that we usually ignore to share on our facebook page ( On Saturday I updated 25 apps and now I have 7 apps already to update. It’s quite cool to see apps evolve in front of your eyes.

      • nokia should pay same attention to Meego, like MS do with wp devices

        • Hypnopottamus

          You do realize that this is a 3rd party app right?

  • Viipottaja

    Quite impressive! Would be nice to see a head-to-head between Ziggy and Siri! 😛

  • dude, i realize is a 3rd party app, but entire system, is generated by attention that MS pay to devs…

  • BJ

    ‘Ziggy’ is a terrible name, and that’s putting it mildly.

  • ps

  • ps
