Requirements: Android 2.2+
Overview: Omega will listen to your requests, answer your questions and act on your behalf
If you are looking for a voice controlled, virtual assistant, similar to Siri on the iPhone 4S, look no further.
Just by asking, you can make appointments, send messages, set alarms and reminders, launch apps, call taxis, businesses and your contacts, check for stores, restaurants and bars around you and many things more.
Omega can also answer general questions, do unit conversions, knows probably more about our world and the relations within it than you and is simply a good companion. It will follow along with the conversation and react intelligently to incomplete input and contextual assumptions.
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING:

Please make sure that you have a text to speech engine installed! Omega will assist you in downloading this by clicking on "Check for TTS data" in the preferences(Press the menu button!).
Thanks to fully supporting Wolfram|Alpha, Omega is able to answer complex factual questions. No other app, not even Siri, will answer these question acoustically:
"What is the 30th Tuesday in 2015?"
"Who is the president of Argentina?"
"How many cups are five pound of lead?"
"Population of the United States, divided by total world population?"
"Who is the singer of Coldplay?"
"Heart disease risk of a 30 year old male smoker?"
"How many dollars are five euros?"
"Will it rain in San Francisco tomorrow?"
"When was the radio invented?"
"Who invented television?"
"What's the highest point in Canada?"
"What's the stock price of Microsoft?"

Also, try looking up music, videos, lyrics and images, ask for time and weather, check out routes and places on the map, or ask Omega to turn on and off your bluetooth and wifi and many things more!
Omega uses the regular recognition engine from Google by default, as practically any app doing speech recognition on android. I find this to work very well, but this varies alot across different people and accents. You might want to try installing Vlingo and setting it up as the default recognition engine in your system settings. You might or might not find this to work better for you.
