We're not huge fans of Cleverbot aka the witty artificial intelligence program out there that engages in a back and forth conversation (www.cleverbot.com), but we do recognize that a lot of people are fascinated by the technology.
Luckily you can now bring the fiendish AI bot with you on your Windows Phone. Yes, the official Cleverbot app for Windows Phone is now in the Marketplace and fetches for $0.99 with no trial.
That's a shame about no trial but the app is well done. It has some neat little sound effects, allows you to share your conversations to Facebook, Live, Twitter and even email. That's a requirement because sharing those conversations with the 'bot is one of the favorite pastimes for folks on the inets these days. From the app description:
Like we said, the app is well done and if 'bots are your thing the $0.99 is worth it. Pick it up here in the Marketplace. Bonus points for you if you post some funny AI conversations in our comments. Thanks, Farhad A., for the tip!

it's interesting to see the amount of new apps being ported to windows phone lately, but the devs really need to use that trial feature. seriouuussly, this ain't the apple ecosystem aight. if devs are afraid people would abuse the trial, make it really really limited. in this case, maybe they could only ask 5 questions and then the trial is over or something like that.
Completely agree. They'll be losing potential customers by not offering a trial of some sort.
The conversations are so off-the-wall and don't make sense. It might be fun to kill time with, but it's not my thing.
I think they could do really well by using ads in the app and making it free. I'm sure a lot of people would spend hours on that game, generating my ads and revenue for the developer. There audience is drastically smaller with a paid app.
I agree. Making it free with ads sounds more to me like they can make much more revenue out of it than actually selling it.
Should be free with ads haha I remember having some of these robots when I used msn fun for a while
Why should parents decide? Can't be anything worse than what they hear at school or on the radio nowadays
No trial? No sale.
What happened to 'cleverbot chat'. I have it on my phone but it's not in the marketplace. That one was free.
Needs some work. 25% of the responses it gives have nothing to do with your input.
