Take more control of Siri with OpenSiri Hands-Free Control and VoiceUtils
Now that iPhone4S users have begun to jailbreak their devices, I am sure the one question on their mind is "what are some great tweaks I can use for Siri?" I just wanted to make a quick post to tell you about my favorite Siri tweaks I have found so far. These tweaks add new features to Siri that would otherwise not be available on a stock iPhone.
OpenSiri is a great new tweak which has just been submitted as a free app to the BigBoss repo. OpenSiri allows you to open native iPhone applications with voice commands. Right now it is limited to only the stock applications but I am sure this will be expanded in the future to open up all sorts of apps. OpenSiri is not yet available in Cydia, but it has been submitted so I can assume we will be seeing it shortly!
This is a very simple tweak, yet it is probably my favorite tweak for Siri so far. This little tweak will allow you to call on Siri without ever touching your phone! For some reason, having to double-tap home to invoke Siri just doesn't seem right. Hands-Free Control will run in the background at all times and listen for your command to bring up Siri. By default you just say "Siri" and Siri will pop up, however you can change the command to a few different preset commands if you find yourself using the word "Siri" in your every day conversations 😛
This is another simple tweak that provides great functionality for Siri. With VoiceUtils, you can get some SBSettings-like commands to be used with Siri. With VoiceUtils installed you can tell Siri to "respring," "reboot," "power off," and "enter safemode."
After the intial novelty of using Siri wore off a few weeks after getting my iPhone4S, I have found myself using it a lot more often now that I am jailbroken with the Absinthe untethered jailbreak and using all these great new Siri tweaks. Have you found any fun or useful Siri tweaks since jailbreaking? If so, please share them in the comments section!
