Great Search Assistant, Terrible External Management
Using the Cortana app to search using text or voice is still a very good experience. However there are three pain points for me:
1) managing HK Invoke speakers seems to be broken for me since I added a second speaker. Currently the “Play a Sound” toggle for active listening is what’s not working.
2) I unlinked my work O365 account, but Cortana seems determined to remember the account and every so often keeps reminding me to login to my work O365 account.
3) the check for updates button has started to say that it wasn’t able to check for updates. Considering that I have reinstalled the app as recently as 1.5-2 months ago, this is very odd.
Filled with bugs for iOS
Brother-in-law bought us a cortana speaker a year and a half ago and set it up with his own microsoft account for whatever reason. I had previously downloaded this app (over a year ago) and tried to log in with my existing microsoft account. It did not let me log in, I tried everything, but ended up deleting the app. I just redownloaded to give it another shot only to find the microsoft account I had previously tried to use was already signed in once the app installed. However, I have been trying to switch to a different microsoft account, and the app will not let me. I have closed and reopened the app several times. Sometimes it will prompt me to “sign in,” but when I press the button, nothing happens at all. Other times when I reopen the app, it recognizes me as already signed in with my old microsoft account. When I then go to sign myself out, the same thing happens. I click sign out and nothing happens. Every now and then when I click sign out, it will bump me back a page, but it won’t sign me out. Terrible app.
I have all but eliminated Siri from my iPhone without jail breaking it! For those that can’t get Cortana just dl MS LAUNCHER(it’s integrated with Cortana). Voice to text for messaging works well but I would like to see voice to text with Cortana not require a physical touch of the send button. Other than that I have Siri so far in the background I only need her to launch Cortana (which would be nice to eliminate Siri all together). I would prefer my windows phone back (hint to MS, to step up their phone game and want to compete in the app race.) windows phone is so much better than what is out there today, but it lacks the apps and therefore appeal to users. I only have an iPhone because of my employer and we are a windows based company(go figure).. one day I hope to use my winphone again but until then ms for iPhone is the next best thing.
