Aurora for Android (Current version: Beta 3.1.6)

Aurora (AUtomated Response On Request Application) is a voice activation program that aims to simplify use of your Android device via voice commands. With Aurora, you can perform everyday activities on your Android device by simply telling Aurora to do them for you. For example, you could have Aurora email somebody by simply saying "Aurora, Email Mitchell Augustin," or you could have her call somebody by saying "Aurora, call Mitchell Augustin, mobile." Not only does Aurora offer great assistance to you by performing system tasks on command, but she can also answer questions on many topics! For example, you could ask Aurora about the height of Mt. Everest, what the chemical formula of water is, what the square root of 100 is, and much, much more. Aurora is also great at finding restaurants based on your preferences. With help from Yelp, Aurora can find and show information on many restaurants in your area.
