If you are not lucky enough to own an iPhone 4S you can't enjoy the Siri features. But don't worry, Sara is here as a second dish.

Ever since Siri was introduced on the iPhone 4S back in October, coders and developers have been looking to manipulate it in a variety of ways and tried to port it to older iDevices as well. Almost all the solutions required a lot of knowledge and are tedious and complicated, until now.

A Vietnamese dev team has produced a new "clone" with apparently much more advanced functions than Siri, her name, Sara. The first and big difference with the Apple's personal assistant is the ability of Sara of learning new voice commands allowing the users to train she. Another important difference is that she recognizes 37 languages and increasing.

Here a brief list of the thing she is capable of:



-Find local business & direction (everywhere, not only US and Canada)
-Search Google, Wikipedia
-Call, message
-View the movie schedule from nearest cinema
-Read newspaper (via RSS)
-Check mail
-Remote control PC
-Search videos from youtube, songs
-Toggle on/off system functional (wifi, bluetooth, 3G etc)
-Translate, support > 37 languages
-Read barcode, qr code then find price, local business sell this
-OCR feature (Image to text), you can use Sara instead of scanner
-Social network support, share photos, comments on Facebook, twitter
-Search product price, local business
-Open apps
-Weather


Sara works with all older iDevices (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and need to perform a jailbreak fot it because she needs to be downloaded from Cydia repo. So, if you want to try, check the links below.
