Is Google Now just a Google version of Siri?
ablake 31 weeks ago
I've seen the press releases, er articles, about Google Now being available on iOS. I'm not sure I understand what it does. I thought it was something like Siri, but a co-worker that uses Android says it is completely different. Unfortunately, he couldn't show me because his Android phone wasn't new enough to support it apparently. Could someone explain what exactly Google Now does, and if it really brings anything new to the iPhone/iPad world?
