The iPhone 4S brought to us the digital voice assistant, Siri. She can answer all the questions, provided the questions make sense and the database has the answer to the. Now, you can ask Siri about different locations such as parks and clubs, and you?ll be provided with the right answer. Siri can?t, by default, extend her reach outside the US. This means if you?re travelling, you won?t be able to ask about nearby restaurants and other recreational places. However, all that changes for International Locations for Siri. This is a new tweak through which you can ask the assistant about different locations when travelling.
International Locations for Siri is an AssistantExtensions plugin, and it allows Siri to use some of its locations services outside the U.S. The current language is English, and more languages may be added if the developer spots out a good translator.
The International Locations for Siri can be grabbed from the Cydia Store for $0.99. You can find it via the BigBoss repo. This tweak requires an iOS device that has Siri functionality and AssistantExtensions will be automatically installed with it. The tweak is still in the early stages and requires more work but until Apple brings international support for Siri locations, it can help us when we are traveling abroad.
So, next time when you go on a vacation or a meeting abroad and want to know the nearby restaurants or other places, remember to install International Locations for Siri to get the answers to the questions you might have. Let us know your thoughts!
