Ask Ziggy Inc. is a software company that develops speech recognition technology for mobile devices.

It is best known for a personal virtual assistant application for Windows Phone[1] that can make calls, send tweets, solve math problems and update a user's status on social networking sites.[2] At the time of its development, it was an effective alternative to Microsoft's own TellMe speech recognition service, though it lagged behind in accuracy compared to well-known applications like Siri and Android.
