Microsoft today updated Cortana for iPhone with a significant redesign that has been available to Android users since December. As noted by Paul Thurrott, version 2.0 of the app is more responsive with redesigned calling, texting, and reminders and more immersive full-page answers with quicker page transitions.

Cortana's mobile redesign launched on Android in December

Cortana is Microsoft's equivalent of Siri for Windows PCs and smartphones, Xbox, iOS, and Android. The personal assistant enables users to ask questions, check the weather, schedule calendar appointments, set reminders, track packages, look up sports scores, and many other tasks that Siri is capable of.

Cortana is free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone.

If it can't replace the OS-integrated Siri, I don't see the point of this.

Cortana belongs to Halo, unless she's a real 3D Hologram.

It's just been released here in the U.K. I've got quite a strong regional accent that Siri struggles with 70% of the time; Cortana is much better at what I'm saying.
Is it anything like this?

I'd really like to know how many people use something like this when it can't be built-in. It just doesn't make sense to me. I know Siri needs a lot of work but most people aren't going to install and open an app to do something like this.
If you have a Windows PC, Being able to sync reminders is huge. If you use Microsoft's services, it's like Google Now, but with your Microsoft data instead of Google. I will admit it does more on Android though.
