Siri's Brother Winston Gives You the Morning Scoop

WinstonYou may remember Winston from its private beta launch back in August, but the DreamIt Ventures-backed startup is ready to officially launch its digital assistant app in the App Store. Winston is a bit like Siri, in that a smart digital voice gives you information direct from your smartphone. However, unlike Siri, Winston doesn’t listen. He just talks. (Typical man.) The idea is that the Winston app can give you a morning briefing of everything that’s important to you while you go about your routine. You can choose to watch Winston as he does his thing, showing you pictures of status updates, tweets, and news items. Winston wakes you up with a “Good Morning, Jordan,” and dives straight into the weather forecast in your area. Then it moves on to the important posts on your social feed, keeping you in the loop with what your friends are up to. Read the full story at TechCrunch.
