Great app but with a few annoying things. I love the integration with Windows 10 meaning I can see notifications on my PC / Surface / laptop. I noticed a new feature today that allows you add calendar to Cortana. Even though I already have calenders set up, I have to reconfigure them. Wouldn't it be easier to just let it talk to Google calender or to pick accounts that have calendar sync enabled? I have 3 Microsoft accounts, but it still wants me to set it up again.
It just can't compete with Google now. It can't understand simple things like my alarm being correctly am or pm. It doesn't have enough customization options. I want to like it, but it's streets behind so far. Every morning it chimes in without an option to disable. It comes off as an annoying push notification rather than help.
3 star for now. I'll get 5 stars if you do this you should be doing something to make Cortana listen in background are there should be a floating mic. So as we can command Cortana in any app. Do these things and this app will be the best.
Switching over from a Microsoft Phone has been much easier now that Cortana is back at my side. However, she is much better utilized on Win10 than Android. She has more limitations here than on the Microsoft platform.
I'll preface this by saying I love how useful it is, especially across devices. All my information between my computer, tablet, and phone in one place. However it does need some more development, Cortana needs to be able to sustain a conversation based on what you tell her, she can't just start over each new time. Furthermore she needs to be able to anticipate followup questions and provide possible actions you may wish to do. Over all, it's a great tool and she has a sense of humor that is superior to google and Siri.
At first it wouldn't let me out of terms and services but they replied to my review and told me they fixed it and to PLO try again and now its working great!
