Drains battery rapidly 1/5
Unless you let Cortana use location service, location based reminders don't work. If you let it use location service all the time, it drains battery rapidly. I don't see the battery drain when I set location based reminders in apple's reminders app.

Cortana on iOS 1/5
By Not Smarter Than A 5th Grader
I found no useful daily use features of this software for iOS. The listening mode didn't work for my iPhone 6. I searched for nearby gluten free with cortana and Google and Google provided better and closer listing. This app still needs work for iOS. Deleted.
love it 5/5
gives me the correct info
Amazing, better than Siri 5/5
I love Cortana. I used to have a Windows 10 Mobile phone and Cortana was such a lifesaver!! Then I had to get an iPhone 6s Plus because there was just not enough important apps on Windows. I fell in love with my iPhone and will never leave iOS again. I use Siri a lot, but she doesn't work for everything I need. So I have always kept Cortana on my phone. I have since upgraded to an iPhone 7 Plus and the first app I downloaded was Cortana. I use Apple's pages and numbers and keynote apps for my office needs, and Cortana is able to work with it perfectly!! Cortana should be used by everyone!!!
Cortana needs work, bad!!! 1/5
Yet another review update (7/16/2917): Cortana, or rather, Cortana's coders need to learn how to parse user inputs. Been trying to set a location reminder that everytime I visit a local WalMart (a little more than a mile away) neighborhood pharmacy I get a reminder to buy some medicine for my dog if I'm out. No matter what I enter, Cortana is clueless about the existence of the WalMart just down my street from me. It was also clueless about other nearby stores.
Since the mid 1990's, Microsoft's ability to parse help inquiries in office programs, Windows, and several other programs has degraded to near-useless results! Prior to then, Microsoft was improving help search results regularly to the point where context sensitive help actually worked very well every time.
Then a decision of some kind was made to stop providing specific results that applied to your specific request and replace them with more generic responses that usually require the end user to continue searching the help system on their own to get their answer.
At the same time, the search engines in all of Microsoft's software ceased parsing search requests accurately. All too often search results don't apply to what is being sought, despite capturing loads of user feedback regarding search results. Its frustrating to see something that was so good to continue diminishing in quality and usefulness over the years! 💩
Previously ... Update: way too many updates! I started using Cortana and I'm bombarded by updates like Cortana had become another job for me to maintain it and deal with the changes and problems each update brings. A good app or device should not get in the way of your work. Updates get in the way of work. I wish companies and programmers would realize that and not use updates as a crutch to poor programming.
Here are my previous comments. As you can see, an inferior product was released for users to test for Microsoft for free. Then they update it to death!
Loads too slowly at start up - why is it always getting things ready?! It should be ready!
You lose your place when reading a news article and you get a notification.
You're stuck Cortana's simplistic repeat options for reminders and arbitrary snooze times.
Here's what I mean about getting notifications when reading news articles... If you get a reminder notification while reading a news article, clicking the snooze or stop buttons results in Cortana unloading the news reader (Safari?) and going back to the main screen. There's no link to where you left off, so good luck finding where you were interrupted!
Using it more and more 5/5
Thanks for making this app Cortana, didn't like the name at 1st before but I found myself to using it more and more. It's been useful so far since I downloaded it few days ago. It actually competing with Siri for sure in my phone. And I use them both. I treat them equally. Keep up the good work Cortana team.
Perfection at its finest! 5/5
Very useful on reminders, and as humorous as Siri! Don't listen to those other people when they say reminders don't work! Here's some extra stars!!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
bad response 1/5
By mben i
it just search the result in web it doesn't understand me
By Patches 52
This app works wonderfully with my touch computer. I would recommend this to anyone who owns one.
I Like Her Better Than Siri 5/5
She works better, has more features, and has a personality.
Best Personal assistant 5/5
This is the best personal assistant. Setting up reminders when you go to particular location works really well. Siri is always hit or miss. But Cortana is more accurate and sends reminder when you park the car in parking location. I hope Apple alliws 3rd party apps like cortana to replace siri and maps.
Look Out Apple! 5/5
By Kurt Foy
So good it makes me want a Windows phone for better platform compatibility
Great informative app! 5/5
A must have
Reminders still unreliable 1/5
Reminders created in Windows 10 are not alerting on this app as they should. Reverted back to version 1.9 for improved reminder reliability and better UI.
Nice app 5/5
Nice app try it
By Paula, Fairfield TX
I like the news updates because it gives both national and local news clips. In life's busyness it helps keep me connected
Better than Siri 4/5
By much nope
Please allow us to change the default assistant on iPhone. I'd prefer Cortana to Siri, but I don't see an option to choose the default assistant.
I love it 5/5
By T.J. Hayes
I love it that she almost always gets the words I say right. She seems more like a person than an app. Come to think of it that's kind of creepy.
Hasn't let me down once
"Get Start"!!! 2/5
I'm trying out this app, because I'm dipping a toe in the Microsoft ecosystem. I couldn't help but laugh at the login screen with, "Get Start" proudly next to the brand logo! Haven't tried the app though.
No syncing 1/5
No sync notifications between devices for iPhone users. Pointless app. Literally, there is no reason to use this app.
If I set a reminder on the phone, it will rise up as a banner. If I set a reminder on my laptop, it will show up in the mobile Cortana app. BUT it will NOT generate the banner or alert. This is of no use to me until it's fixed.
Good Assistant 5/5
By Frank alm
Siri won't listen in noisy environments and she won't listen to whispers. Ok Google just searches the web. Cortana doesn't sound like a robot and she actually takes long than Siri. But, she get your words right almost every time! She also can hear whispers. She's also on the computer and I get to search for anything on my Windows PC! With her being compatible with devices AND computers, Cortana is very helpful! 5 stars!
PS: She can also turn on if you say "Hey Cortana," when Siri only turns on when you are connected to power! (In my iPad's case...)
App won't open. Tried downloading again. Still won't work 1/5
App won't work
Need some work but better than Siri or google assistant 4/5
Customization, understanding and suggestions are better than Siri and google assistant. Performance is not as good as other two so I dropped one star for that. Need some work and more integration with iPhone and other accounts
Great app 5/5
I love having Cortana in my life, 😊
Works great 5/5
Productivity booster 5/5
OMG! She knows what I need.
Nice to see but need more 3/5
Hay Cortana" is the best part of Cortana that is not available and most important to me, other than that the rest seems to be working fine .
Better then siri 5/5
By Smitty mc tittys
Compared to Siri 5/5
By Crousemo 78
I love this app so much better than Sri ask it anything and it will give you what you need.
It's ok 5/5
It syncs well with Windows 10, and does the job.
Cortana Phone Companion KnowMail App buggy! Plz FIX 1/5
I just downloaded the Cortana app to my iPhone 7 Plus. Cortana offered a mail tool to help organize my emails. I thought what a great idea but It would not accept my work email or my personal Gmail account. I can already access both email addresses on Outlook 2016 on my PC and on my iPhone. This was the first time I've used the Phone Companion. Very disappointed please fix this!
Voice search always crashes app 1/5
Everytime I try the voice search something always goes wrong and app crashes
If it can't tell time correctly....what good is it? 1/5
I'm in eastern and it gives time for central
Still needs a little work but I can wait as it progresses...
Love it, but 5/5
This might just be me but when using Cortana I couldn't use "Hey Cortana" function of the app, that was the main reason I got this but it still by far beats Siri
Way better than Siri 5/5
Actually reads answers it finds to questions and is very fast.
Good but not perfect.
Useful and practical 5/5
Fast useful information and traffic report
Cortana available in three languages only, really??? When in Spanish???
Love being able to sync between iPad and PC! 5/5
By Deadbone Java
I love the ability to sync my calendars for personal life and work between work, ho,e, and even my iPad! And Cortana is a great personal assistant providing help and answers to just about anything I can imagine.
Useful but not perfect 4/5
Works well when it works
Very helpful 5/5
Cortana helps if you have an xbox one or windows 10. And is just overall useful
Not proving useful to me 3/5
I am close to uninstalling this app. I've tried it for 3 months now and despite several updates it is still not giving me enough functionality to make it worth keeping in my iPhone.
Cortana doesn't talk dynamically like Siri does. Reminders are not noticeable enough, and cannot be snoozed. The package tracking is quite useless. The only thing useful is when she surfaces news on topics that I programmed her to look for. I don't use the other features.
I just find that other apps do the things I want, better. It's not a bad app but neither is it a great or an indispensable app.
Not great 1/5
App is slow to start. Also the voice recognition often fails to startup most of the time, giving me a "can't connect" message.
