S Voice Back Again, the XDA Way
Earlier, we reported that the S Voice application that was ripped from the Samsung Galaxy SIII leak had stopped functioning. Now though, in what appears to be the final chapter of the S Voice saga, the application is back up and running, XDA-Developers style thanks to XDA Senior Member ithehappy.
