We know that Siri, Apple’s very own virtual assistant can help users perform a lot of tasks when she receives simple verbal commands. Though the fruit company has given her an impressive a set of skills, her repertoire keeps improving through the numerous tweaks which we can easily find in the Cydia Store. Not only that, we all know that once the iOS 6, which we all are waiting for, is released, it will further improve her performance. Though she is able to perform tasks, which are related to software, she isn’t able to do a lot when it comes to the hardware side of the iDevice people use. A tweak by the name SiLight will no doubt change that.
Do not have an iPhone 4S, but still want Siri? Well, that isn’t any unusual craving to have! In fact, I would say you surely deserve to have something as special as Siri and that too NOW on your current iPhone.
I’m sure, most of you are familiar about the most ‘trending’ topic when it comes to iPhone nowadays; i.e. to get your non-iPhone 4S Siri-enabled. And amazingly, there are numerous tweaks to do so. However the latest and most convincing way to get Siri on your jailbroken non-iPhone 4S is AssistantServer Installer.

This is the 3rd article of the Siri Tip series. Earlier, we showed you how to better utilize Siri to retrieve the weather information and create note.

In this post, let’s see how you can search flight schedule and movie showtimes using Siri.
Last week, we showed you how to use Siri to create, edit and search note. This week, let’s see how the Siri assistant can help you check out weather information, humidity and wind speed.
Siri keeps you informed about current weather and weather forecast.
Just ask “What’s the weather for today?”. Assuming location service is enabled, Siri will give you the current weather information based on your location. If location service is not enabled, Siri will ask you where you’re. Alternatively, you can specify your location in your question. For example, you can say “How’s the weather in London for today?”.
Siri is the best known feature for iPhone 4S. It’s advertised as a virtual assistant that listens your voice command.

This week, let’s take a look how you can use Siri to create, edit and search notes.
It is indeed raining jailbreaks for iPhone 4S! Just days after the Absinthe Jailbreak of iPhone 4S, iPad 2 Untethered On iOS 5.0.1, here comes another iOS 5 untethered jailbreak – SiriToggles, that works as a voice-activated personal assistant exclusively on the iPhone 4S and promises to add new functions to Siri.
SiriToggles as a third party application works with any device running Siri, even comprising those that have had the voice-recognition assistant ported to them. It not only enables Siri to turn services like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Airplane mode on and off using vocal commands; but also to do tasks like adjusting screen brightness, launching applications, finding battery life estimate, etc.
The speech-recognition functionality Siri in the iPhone 4S is unarguably one of the most envied and desired features for any other smartdevice user. Many an attempt to create an alternative including Cydia Tweaks has not yet managed to hijack the magic of Siri.
But, here comes the news of an iPhone App Evi – pitted as the revolutionary artificial intelligence that helps you with your everyday information needs courtesy ‘voice and text input’. As the seller True Knowledge, a California-based semantic technology company puts it, “Life is simpler with Evi”. Indeed!
Apple’s path-breaking voice recognition tool ‘Siri’, which debuted with the iPhone 4S has been the under constant limelight since its advent in November 2011. Not only has it secured a loveable place in the heart of millions of iPhone 4S users with it adorable conversations even triggering sales; it has as well challenged the jailbreaking community who have been keeping busy making several successful as well as unsuccessful attempts to bring Siri to the previous iPhones.
Last November, I wrote a post explaining how much data does Siri use on an iPhone 4S. While there’s no doubt that Siri is the standout feature of Apple’s iPhone 4S, a recent report from Arieso suggests that Apple’s virtual assistant Siri uses almost twice as much data as other Apple devices, such as the iPad. While it doesn’t matter to customers with unlimited data plans, it’s definitely a cause for concern for wireless carriers as it alleviates the fears of network congestion.
