Hound Mobile App

Hound is the hot new personal assistant (Voice Search & Assistant) mobile app. Here’s how it compares to Siri and Google Now

Do we really need another personal assistant for our phones? Siri and Google Now are already baked into Apple and Android phones respectively, but Hound thinks it can do better.

Hound is SoundHound‘s digital assistant app, first released as a beta in 2015. Now, the app is ready it comes with a few tricks that one-up both Google Now and Siri. It’s available at the meantime in USA for free in the App Store and Google Play, yet not available in other countries.

Specifically, Hound is built for handling multiple demands at once, so you can ask it a complicated question, like “What day of the week will June 14th be in 2030?” and it will understand all of the pieces of the question to give you a correct answer. SoundHound’s CEO Keyvan Mohajer says that Hound uses “speech to recognition” technology, as opposed to “speech to text” and then “text to recognition” that its competitors use. All that means for you is faster search results and better answers for lengthy questions.

What can Hound do that others can’t?

  • It’s currently the only personal assistant currently that can summon an Uber ride and tell you the cost, distance and time of the trip.
  • If you’re scheduling a conference call or appointment in another part of the world, Hound can tell you the time in your current location and the other time zone.
  • Hound can exclude certain results from a restaurant search. For instance, you can ask for Asian

    restaurants nearby that aren’t Thai or Japanese all in one sentence. You can refine your results further by asking to show only restaurants that are open now, have parking and are inexpensive.

  • With hotels, you can rattle off a list of needs “A hotel in San Francisco from May 25 to May 31 that’s pet-friendly and under $500 per night” and Hound pieces together all those attributes into your search.

Hopefully the app will be available soon in UAE other countries.

Now, your smartphone is your passport in Dubai!

The first and one of its kind service in the world, will change the way people travel with airlines. UAE took the lead and Dubai airport is the world’s first airport to apply this smart system.

Passengers departing from Dubai International Airport can now use their smart phones at the smart gates instead of their passports as part of a new service called Smart UAE Wallet or UAEWallet , and comes in the form of an official mobile app.

Lt General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, deputy chairman of police and public security in Dubai and Major-General Mohammad Ahmad Al Merri, director-general of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai (GDRFA Dubai), launched the project in cooperation with Emirates airlines at the Dubai International Airport on Tuesday June 6th , 2017.

UAE citizens and residents can register their personal details, Emirates ID and passport information, which means you simply have to scan a barcode generated by the app as you pass through the airport, and provide a fingerprint for identity purposes.

According to Gulf News, developers are confident that it is impossible to hack or misuse the app, which has undergone security checks.

At the moment, the app can only be used in Terminal 3 (the Emirates terminal), but is expected to be rolled out across all terminals once the system is linked with other airlines.

According to the Emirates News Agency, the aim of the new scheme is to streamline travel across Dubai International Airport, and is considered the first of its kind in the world.

Passengers will only need to scan the barcode on their smart phones at the smart gates and scan a fingerprint to complete the process in 9 to 12 seconds. Emiratis and residents represent 55 per cent of people using Dubai airports and the UAE Wallet will reduce traffic at all gates.

Passengers don’t need to carry their passport now, even the boarding pass, because all the data registered in the system including the name, seat number and flight number is linked to the wallet. This will reduce the time and effort for all concerned.

Last year, the idea of “paperless passports” was floated by British company De La Rue, the world’s biggest passport producer.

The company said it was working on technology that would allow passengers to securely store their passport details on their smartphones, in the same way as mobile boarding passes – and it looks like Dubai has now made that idea a reality.

How to be avail of the UAE Wallet

– Download the UAE Wallet app from the Apple store.

– Register for the UAE Wallet any time before your travel date.

– After registering, present the required machine-readable barcodes generated within the UAE Wallet to pass through the smart gates.
