Wonderfully clever app Simple to set up, easy to use, and it's as good as Google's voice recognition and your imagination, especially if you also own tasker.

Downgrading rating Since last update where they added ads the batery usage had skyrocketed. I don't mind ads but pass check battery usage. Ads cannot be running in background that is pathetic
