Ooloo is a new, free voice search app for iOS and\u00a0Android, and it\u00a0relies on actual humans to answer your questions 24\/7. I tested the iOS app and compared the answers I received to answers from Apple\u2019s Siri and Google Now (on an Android smartphone).\n\n\nThe verdict: Of the five test questions I asked, Ooloo excelled at one, did an OK job with another, and mostly fumbled the other three.\n\n\nWhen asked, "When will the iPhone 6 be released?," I received an answer from Ooloo in less than a minute with text copied and pasted from an article in TheTelegraph.co.uk, a U.K. news site. The text quoted a source that suggested Tuesday, Sept. 9, is the next iPhone\u2019s launch date.\n\n\n\nAs of this writing, it\u2019s not clear when the iPhone 6 will be launched or when it will be available. At least Ooloo\u2019s response didn\u2019t make me dig through links. In comparison, Google Now served up links to various websites with dedicated pages that compiled related iPhone 6 news and rumors. Siri simply replied: \u201cApple.com should be able to answer that question, and more.\u201d Um, I rather doubt that, Siri.\n\n\nWhen I asked Ooloo, \u201cWhat is the highest rated movie currently showing in San Francisco?,\u201d I received a text link that said, \u201cGo see this movie!\u201d The link took me to a Fandango ticket page for Guardians of the Galaxy.\n\n\nSiri\u2019s answer was more acceptable; it displayed currently playing movies sorted by Rotten Tomato scores. Guardians was the third highest-ranked film behind Boyhood and Snowpiercer. Google Now simply showed me current movie listings from The San Francisco Chronicle and other websites.\n\n\nThe simple question of "What\u2019s the current temperature?" sparked a quick response from Ooloo. My location (San Francisco) was correctly identified in the answer, but the temperature was in Celsius.\n\n\nOoloo couldn\u2019t be any easier to use. You just tap a large yellow microphone icon, record your question, post it and await the response, which usually comes within about three minutes. You can also go back and review your previously asked questions, which are cached.\n\n\nI like Ooloo, but I don\u2019t think it\u2019s a match for Siri. It did a better job than Google Now, though, in terms of directly answering questions instead of making me click and search them. So if you\u2019re an Android user, you might want to take Ooloo for a spin.
