Numi, is calling itself a Beautiful calculator app for Mac, and it caught my attention the other day so I thought I'd share it with you guys. I tried playing around with the app, and while it makes for extremely simple and impressive demo on it's website, I quickly ran up against limitations.
Natural language is a really hard thing to parse, it often requires wither complex algorithms and machine learning like what you find in Siri or Google Assistant for example (both services not always known for nailing exactly what you mean), or solutions require a seemingly endless database of brute-force rules to parse, making things pretty slow, and easy to break.
My Numi experience started very well. I downloaded the app from it's website, with no ask for any information from me, and within seconds it was in my downloads folder. Then upon first boot, the app offered to move itself for me. I really can't say enough how pleased I was with this operation, too often a clunk part of app installs on Mac involve putting something that was in my downloads folder and remembering to move it into my applications folder.
