utter! Voice Commands BETA!


Welcome to the BETA release of utter! Your offline voice controlled personal assistant with a difference...

What makes utter! different?

utter! is not your average Siri clone and doesn’t attempt to be a gimmick of a virtual assistant application, its priority is to be super functional and ultra fast! It allows many device based commands to be performed offline, without the need for a data connection (Jelly Bean only).

utter! runs in the background of your device, is very lightweight on resource and does not have a user-interface, so its functions are available anywhere on the device, at any time, to interact with any application.

With highly optimised algorithms, utter! aims to make voice control on your device, something you wonder how you ever did without! Something that is achieved faster than you could do it manually and an implementation that takes full advantage of the openness of the Android Platform, by giving you full device control in addition to using the functions in your favourite installed applications.

There’s no need to open up a separate application to execute your voice commands. With just a shake, wave, or a good old fashioned button press, utter! wakes to address you as you see fit, wherever you are on your device, whatever you are doing.. and it won’t get in the way.

So, please do get involved in the testing stage, give me your feedback and help me create a Voice Controlled Personal Assistant that is truly useful! One that makes fast offline voice recognition for Android a reality!

Why so many permissions?
utter! needs to do everything for you hands free, so you don't have to touch the device. Permissions such as automatically sending text messages and placing calls will be used under these circumstances.

BIG Thank you to all those that have posted comments and given 5* - It's appreciated.

PLEASE don’t post a 1* comment "It doesn’t work" – that really doesn’t help! I can’t get the problem sorted! There’s an email link in the application, I’d be delighted to solve any bugs you find. I hope they are few and far between now and your voice commands will be executed in under a second.

[BUGS!] - http://goo.gl/c5rkr

Some users are getting force closes when the application starts for Galaxy Nexus/Transformer/Note 2 - http://goo.gl/GUvYT

Jelly Bean & custom ROMs built from the same release have a major bug where English (US) in the Google Voice Search settings prevents voice data from being returned. Please change this to English (UK) until they fix it...

Weather and Time API's do not provide accurate results for US States – I’ll be changing provider soon as non-singular States/Countries are not supported.

IVONA can lock up the media stream and lags on initialisation [Notified IVONA]

[PERMISSIONS!]

NONE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS UPLOADED TO EXTERNAL SERVERS OR SHARED! Any permissions utter! requests are for device level ONLY.

User reviews of utter! Voice Commands BETA!
I get a "there was an error communicating with tasker." error within the utter app.
Jan 14, 2013
Utter is still in development... but its already so far ahead of the competition its unbelievable. Utter is simply the best app on android. Get it! You can customize and personalize it, you can link the apps you have on YOUR phone/tablet, it can access and change virtually all setting on your device such as wifi on off etc. It can set alarms, calendar event, calculate sums, text, call, tweet, post and show contacts. All this and the developer Ben Randall is really help full and happy to implement your ideas and respond to your bugs. 5/5 Brilliant.

By far the best VA I've tried It takes a virtual assistant to the next level. Why? Because utter! is (highly) customizable. It's like Tasker with voice (where all "if"s are voice-based), or at least getting there. It supports many different types of commands. And even if you come up with one that isn't there, chances are, you can make a custom command for it! There are a few small bugs here and there, and many features are WIP (that's only good news), but it's a BETA, waddya expect? The biggest limitation is the one you always hear about: Voice Recognition. Too often still (imho) it does not understand me. But there is a little misconception here: Utter uses Google's speech recognition engine for this, not its own, so it's not this app's fault! Complain to Google!

Amazing just amazing So far this app runs very smooth. I have an off market android phone and the app combines perfectly. I do however have one issue that arises often. When using the permanent talk to wake up ( I forget at this time the actually features name) if I ask for music or if I give a long command the permanent feature will deactivate itself and I have to go back to turn it on. For a free beta this app is literly spectacular I will freely donate to keep this going. Very good job
