    Post App News: Siri alike App " Evi" will be banned by Apple

    It has recently been come under everyone's attention that an app called Evi is as efficient as Siri which is developed for iPhone 4S. This app can do so many things like Siri and it can also run on iOS 5 in iPhone 3Gs or iPhone 4.

    The app is developed by William Tunstall-Pedoe, chief executive of True Knowledge, is available in Apple's App store as well as Market for Android. It is obvious as it's a very big threat to the company, Apple has decided to remove the app from it's app store and has already notified the developer.

    It is because the app can understand US accent and can help you in many ways, no one would like to go for iphone 4S which is way costlier than iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4. It is definitely going to affect the sales of 4S.

    Evi's resemblance to Siri goes deeper than the name: both offer voice-driven speech analysis to find data to help users. While Siri is more deeply embedded into the iPhone 4S – the only handset on which it is available – it cannot do UK-focussed searches.

    Evi uses the same speech recognition system, Nuance, as Siri, but depends on its own set of servers to work on the content of the user's request. It also works on any iPhone handset, as well as the iPad tablet and Google Android devices.

    As of Monday afternoon, the app was still available in the UK and US stores, and Tunstall-Pedoe said that he was waiting for further information from Apple, which had not responded to a request for information as this story was being prepared for publication.

    Apple rarely removes apps from the App Store wholesale, unless they are found to have sneaked extra functions past its team of checkers who manually review every app before allowing it to go on sale.

    It has previously done this for a camera app which used the iPhone volume button as a shutter release, and one which made a game out of shaking an onscreen baby.
    Tunstall-Pedoe said Evi has been popular on both the Apple and Android stores. Having been available for three weeks, it is approaching half a million downloads in total.
    While the Android version is free, because it uses Google's voice recognition system, the iPhone version costs 69p, to cover the cost of the Nuance voice-recognition system which turns users' requests into machine-readable text.

    Even so downloads are running at equal levels on the two platforms, said Tunstall-Pedoe.
