Cortana will be more than just an app that lets users interact with their phones more naturally using voice commands. Cortana is core to the makeover of the entire "shell" -- the core services and experience -- of the future versions of Windows Phone, Windows and the Xbox One operating systems, from what I've heard from my contacts.

came in expecting an app that puts a mini cortana in the corner of my phone and responds to commands/informs of notifications with her voice, personality and mannerisms. leaving disappointed.

^ call me when you f****** have that. then maybe a windows phone will interest me.

Damn. That is awesome. There will also be an app out this month that is like Siri, but in the voice of Iron Man's Jarvis.
