Hound

Want the newest and hottest app? Then Hound is for you. A bit of a surprise newcomer, it must’ve been in the works for awhile because it’s already great at recognizing natural speech like: “Show me hotels in Austin that have free Wi-Fi, a gym, and cost less than $200.”

Some reviews claim it’s the fastest and most intelligent app of its kind, and it’s gaining momentum—and usefulness—with integrations with major services like Yelp, Uber, and Expedia.
