Well here’s a cool tool that I found which will let you add a Siri/Cortana styled interface to the mobile app for your device. In a nutshell, api.ai lets your users speak to your product and order them around.

It also supports platforms across the board — iOs, Android and Python are the ones specifically listed but they also promise “many more”.
