Cortana vs Google Now: Launch each app

After my MoTR podcast cohost and fellow ZDNet writer, Kevin Tofel, posted the news that Cortana was available for Android I installed it on my new Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Cortana is solid and very functional for a beta application, but after testing it for a day I switched my home button back to Google Now.
