It looks like Cortana can be integrated into APPS written for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. I am looking forward to see some examples.
If Cortana is in a good mood she gives me straight asnwers, like, If I ask her to sing me lullaby, she obliges and asks me if Oh! Danny Boy is OK.
I guess she can read my mood.
Some things are no brainer for her, like:
Will it be sunny in Bengaluru, tomorrow?
Will it rain tomorrow?
Here are pieces of conversation I had with her and her responses are in blue.
What day is tomorrow? and she brings up my appointment tomorrow.
