Love it or hate it, Siri, Apple’s personal assistant is now a fixture not only on iOS devices, but in popular culture as well. Providing everything from directions to weather and sports scores to the answer to the meaning of life, Siri has developed into a truly useful hands-free personal assistant.

We put some of the top personal assistant apps to the test to see how they stack up.
