New smartphone app asks YOU for help!

With Quiri, you can ask your smartphone anything – or it might ask you!

Personal voice assistants for your smartphone – like Siri for the iPhone and Speaktoit for Android phones – are great for answering questions. But they use tremendous amounts of bandwidth as they search through the Internet for answers. Now there’s a personal voice assistant app that uses crowdsourcing for its information. Instead of searching online, the new Quiri™ app asks other smartphone owners for answers. When you ask Quiri, for example, “When does City Hall close on Thursdays?”, Quiri will ask a smartphone user in that area, who will then respond with the answer. That means every once in a while, you’ll be asked by Quiri to provide some information that another smartphone user has asked for. It might be “What’s the population of (your town)?” Or “How many hours of daylight are there on October 19?” Or “Who was kicked off Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday?” Or even “How many nanometers are there in a cubic hectare?” Simply key in the answer, and Quiri will provide that information to the person who asked. Quiri will provide more up-to-date information than other personal voice assistants, because it asks people in real time – and one of them could be you!

New app translates baby talk!

Now you can find out what those cute baby sounds really mean!

Ever wonder what your baby is trying to say with all that cute gurgling and babbling – or crying? Now you can find out, thanks to a new translator app for smartphones called BabyTalk™. Language scientists spent five years studying baby sounds, and by discovering which areas of a baby’s brain lit up during each sound, they could determine what the baby was trying to communicate. BabyTalk is easy to use – simply start it up and hold the smartphone near your baby when he or she is making noises of any kind. The app will analyze the sound and translate it into a message that is delivered by a synthesized voice. The message might be “I’m really, really hungry,” or “This is fun,” or “I think my diaper is full.” You’ll be surprised by what your baby is trying to say – especially if you thought crying or babbling meant nothing in particular. For now, BabyTalk only translates into English and Spanish, but more languages will become available. The developers are also working on a version that will let you speak into the smartphone and translate what you say into baby talk.

BabyTalk baby communication app, $5.99. Specify iOS or Android.
