Voice apps have been around almost as long as smartphones have, but they all operate differently. Being able to have a concise voice activated interface for everything one does would go a long way to making sure voice apps work the way they should, and that's where Wit comes in.
Siri is the biggest name when people think to voice interfaces. Google also has their own AI style voice interface but both of these platforms operate completely differently. Wit is a developer's tool that will allow developers to add Siri type functionality to any app.
Wit will also allow developers to add voice app type usage to robots and wearable devices. With the popularity of both of those things on the rise this development couldn't have come at a better time. For those who aren't fans of the tactile experience, having voice controlled functionality will be a huge plus.
