Ask Ziggy makes the move to Windows Phone 8

The popular Siri-like app Ask Ziggy has been updated to version 2.8.1 and is now compatible with Windows Phone 8. Along with Windows Phone 8 compatibility, the update gives Ask Ziggy a new icon, a few bug fixes, a new speech to text provider. Additionally, the list of languages available for translation has been reduced to the most popular languages.

Ask Ziggy

For those not familiar with Ask Ziggy, it's a speech powered interface to activate many of your Windows Phone applications. From calling a contact to finding out what the weather forecast is to checking your calendar, Ask Ziggy gives your Windows Phone more of a hands free feel. It can tap into your Windows Phone calculator to solve math problems and search the web for answers to questions like, "Who is Bob Hope?".

Ask Ziggy is a free app for your Windows Phone and you can snatch it up here at the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, Pranaya, for the tip!
