Good news for Apple fans! No more waiting for the Siri technology to come to the Mac platform as the App store brings an app to help you do it on your very own Mac or PC. This iOS app is the Touchpad app for iPhone, iPad and iPod from Edovia but the thing that is to be remembered is that its Siri features are to be used only on the iPhone 4S and particularly over WiFi as it doesn’t support 3G.
This amazing app can work on your iPhone as well as iPad on 4S. It converts the device in to a remote with the help of which you can input your voice commands to your PC as it’s done with Siri. It enables typing virtually as with a virtual keyboard and you can get your device turned to a remote with the cursor controlling through a track pad and dragging files/windows. Thus, you can manage the audio and video files.
Now you’ve also got the advantage of giving Siri instructions through the dictation user interface on your iPhone 4S with the Siri icon on the Touchpad’s keyboard. The modifier keys are clearly visible in the new version and there is also the additional support of the media playing apps and numerous other shortcuts. Besides this, there is the enhanced zoom feature and the options to international keyboards as well as help manuals.
So if you are looking for mobility and remoteness through your iOS device, Touchpad is the perfect choice. That’s the main reason why Touchpad is considered better in this respect than Nuance’s Dragon Dictate which is the preferred one nowadays. Although paying $4.99 for a mere email or a tweet from iPhone 4S doesn’t seem justified.
