Better than Siri 5/5
Cortana is better than Siri could lid ever be. MS needs to find a way to integrate her with iOS as they did with Windows Phone.
Lack of integration with OS limits 5/5
By Levi Abbott
If you use Windows 10, particularly mobile then you already know and are comfortable with Cortana and most likely love her. This app provides the familiar experience, information and services. Unfortunately, since it is unable to integrate fully with iOS and usurp Siri the app lacks a little compared to what you may be accustomed to. This isn't a Cortana issue, but a Siri issue. Hopefully, Microsoft will bring us a mobile Windows 10 device with telephony soon. Or maybe Apple might realize that they don't have the AI thing right. But until now this is adequate when you must leave your PC.
Works as well or better than on the Microsoft phone that Nadella killed. I gave it four stars because MS is moving to “why use one click when when you can use three” paradigm.
It looks like it has a future. It is still very cluttered and I wish it had Microsoft To-Do integration. This feels like a necessity to me.
Stripped down version of Cortana 3/5
Just moved over from a Lumia 950. I was glad to see Cortana was here as an app. But it’s very limited.
Way too difficult to sync the calendar on my Windows PC with this app (if it’s possible at all)
It Works GREAT On HP LTop ( de 5/5
TBut When I Download tThe app On My iPhone & iPad,It Works Spotty.
But Fantastic on The L.Top It Came With, Maybe Siri & Cortina Don’t Get Along???? I But If Tickets Were
Sold There Would Be A Definite Sell Out Or 2. “The Catfight Of All Time”.
The only downside is that the app takes a while to open but Cortana is the best assistant!!!!
Never knows my location 3/5
Don't know what it does that on multiple phones. Otherwise would be decent.
Very nice and great for me 5/5
By Aaron Cowans
Love the Cortana sync 4/5
Been wanting to try this, really good sync with my account over my laptop.
Location reminder work great. Gets the notification right when I reach the place or leave from the place. 💕
Keep up the good work, recent redesign was much needed. 5/5
Keep up the good work, recent redesign was much needed.
Please make Home Automation control work on iOS, “Connected Home” commands don’t seem to work from it yet like they do on my Surface Book. “Hey Cortana, turn on the lights”
Removed iPhone X support 3/5
Why did you remove screen-support for the iPhone X? Please add it back.
Dose pretty good. 3/5
Still getting to know her but she so far impresses me.
Nice app ! 5/5
By Todor Rainov
Nice app, greetings from Bulgaria!
By Girly Girly 612
Every time a reminder or event comes up it says the date in 2015. Halloween and daylight savings time came up with those dates. I am shocked no one has fixed this. I do admit I like Cortana far better than the dull,dry Siri.
Adds nothing; annoying calendar 1/5
What truly can this app do that iOS and widgets don’t already do? Honestly? Nothing. Plus calendar events are all doubled because, somehow, Cortana draws on two calendars, and there is no obvious way to edit out this problem. Instant delete.
Need iPad UX 1/5
By The Jacemeister
Need iPad UX now.
Great app has the wrong location for me. All the time
Excellent platform 5/5
Cortana makes iPhone computer use so easy from searchs to people finding.
This app rocks I like her voice.
Notifications Broken 1/5
Notifications for reminders fail to appear reliably. What’s the point of setting a reminder if it never reminds you?
Love it 5/5
I love this app but can you please connect this to the Xbox app if you can connect this to the Xbox app I will destroy my brothers PS4 Facts I'll do it I'm following you on twitter so if you do it post it on your twitter and I'll see it 😉
New UI is pointless, Doesn't speak 1/5
Where are my packages? They used to show up in the feed. I got a notification. But I can't see the tracking anywhere.
Why are there two feeds instead of one?! If I wanted to see my calendar only I'd open the calendar app I use.
Also, Cortana doesn't talk back to me. Which beats the whole purpose of a voice assistant.
Glitch or Bug 4/5
By Luka Sojanovic (YoloiTzzCrash)
There’s some sort of glitch or bug in the Cortana Widget. The name Cortana Quick Action just got a different name (Glitch or bug): CFBUNDLEDISPLAYNAME. I don’t know, but it could be a glitch. Please fix it, thank you! ❤️
Cortana circle 2/5
By Doc moha
Every time when I open Cortana app, I click the Cortana symbols to start searching, colors choices appears. Then i close the app.
Easier to Use than Siri 5/5
Great voice recognition. Can even stay synced with my Surface using my iPhone. It’s great.
Concept good but no follow though 1/5
The app is a good idea but does not work. The syncing feature with windows 10 is broken. Many users complain but no response from Microsoft. I would love for this to work and sync up notifications but as of today does not work. Bummer.
So far so good it is working fine.
Can be better 3/5
Coming from a windows phone for over 5 years, this app is just not what I can be. No response from Cortona when setting reminders and no opts to play a song and get the Album/Song info.
Roll out global and iPad UX 4/5
Please roll out cortana in other countries. Then I‘ll rate this app higher. It‘s currently annoying that I have to switch region an account to update.
Please also add a user interface for the iPad.
Needless to say that I prefer “talking” to Cortana and not to Siri since she’s way more "competent" and also speaks with me when I'm not using an Apple device ;)
Lacking integration 3/5
By Maks Koseda
Cortana is great and recently got really fast and fluid, but it lacks sync with my Outlook calendar. I could set it up in the default iOS calendar app but that's not the point. NEED SYNC WITH OUTLOOK!
Enjoying new layout 5/5
Through the last few iterations the layout became confusing but the latest update significantly improve things. It’s more intuitive and useful. I’m excited for the fall update integration.
Love the new updates. 5/5
I just downloaded the new version and it’s GREAT! It feels more slick and also more convenient to use.
One of the best apps! 4/5
Didn’t have high expectations for Cortana but very well organized and has one of the best UIs. Need to integrate in setting tab though.
The blue icon is back! Great choice. Nicer UI. Thanks Microsoft.
Really though 1/5
I’m sooo confused why Cortana is actually an app that you can download. If I have any questions I ask Siri...duh 😠
No horizontal screen on IOS 1/5
Microsoft, what century are we in? Really ?? I can only use my iPad in vertical orientation??
Can't link to my pic 1/5
On my pc I click link and it sends me a text, once I get the text I download the app and open it and nothing happens.
Wrong Language 1/5
Why would this only download in what seems to be Japanese or Chinese’s? There is no way that I can find to change the language to English so I can use it.
Great but it needs to be better. More responsive and faster.
Good App 4/5
By Magu app
It can understand my accent much better than other apps. It is fast too. Let's see what else can it do in the future.
Brand new update has lots of bugs and very slow 1/5
You click on a topic and literally 3 seconds later it switches. Or if you click on something and it doesn't for what you want and them you click on something else it crashes the entire app. This has happened multiple times in the less than 5 minutes of using it
Great app getting better 5/5
Love getting reminders about things I mentioned in email. Great app!
Microsoft iOS apps pale in comparison to Windows Mobile 2/5
I truly enjoy using Windows Mobile, but unfortunately, Microsoft (Nadella) has decided to kill it off.
I've been using Cortana on an iPad for over 6 months, as an intermediary between my Microsoft phone and my PC. Today, I opened Cortana to find that the last update changed things quite a bit, and the reminders functionality on Cortana no longer works the way it used to - it takes two more steps now to add a reminder. I know this doesn't sound like much, but when it used to "just work" and now requires multiple steps to work, that is a failing product.
Satya Nadella has ruined Microsoft beyond repair. I no longer enjoy their products, and it's getting worse every day.
Useless if it can’t connect to my Microsoft account. 1/5
I pay for a Business Office365 account which has Cortana connectivity enabled in the account settings, yet I can not log in with my work account. This makes the app useless Microsoft, how can you possibly promote Cortana as a digital assistant if it can not connect to your own paid hosted services.
Best assistant 5/5
I use a Windows phone as daily driver. I was issued an iPhone for work and installed Cortana. The functionality is a bit limited but Cortana is superior to Siri in every way.
Siri lost 5/5
Cortana is SO MUCH BETTER than Siri. Microsoft is definitely on top with this one ! 😍
Cortana rocks!!! 5/5
Great that works so much better than other voice operated apps... I love it
“Sorry, I didn’t catch that” 1/5
No matter what I ask, the thing spins for about 5-7 seconds and returns, “Sorry, I didn’t catch that.” Tried navigation and “Sorry, something went wrong.” I’ll stick with “Ok, Google”.
Stop asking to add the widget! 2/5
I have zero intent on using the Cortana widget.....ever. Stop asking EVERY time I open the app. Eventually I'm gonna just remove it.
