-- Evi is the first artificial intelligence of its kind which can be communicated with using natural language via an app on iPhone and Android. The app quickly became no 1 in the iTunes app store and there was much controversy between EVI and the giants at Apple and their app Siri.
Rounding out its announcements Evi announced that its personal assistant app for iOS and Android platforms has been installed more than one million times since Evi’s January 23rd launch. The million-user milestone – which roughly calculates to a new user installing Evi every ten seconds since her debut-- is a combination of total installations through all services vvldt where Evi is available, such as iTunes and Google Play.
The Evi app skyrocketed to popularity the week it launched, winning #1 popularity status in the iTunes App Store in both the U.S. and U.K. It continues to be a leader in the personal assistant space.
Evi’s mission is to get things done through their technology that understands natural language in the context of each user and the world they live in. Founded in 2007, Cambridge, UK and US-based Evi currently employs 25 people. The company is venture funded, with the main investor being London-based Octopus Ventures.
