How to Make the Most out of Siri on your iPhone

By Cheri Bowden Subscribe to RSS | May 9th 2012 | Views:

You've taken the plunge and bought an iPhone 4S. As if a super futuristic touch screen isn't enough, those ingenious boffins at Apple have also invented the mind boggling Siri tool, Siri can be hilarious to some and confusing to others, but with a little understanding Siri can be used to organise more than just your phone.

Siri is piece of state of the art voice recognition software unique to the iPhone Four. Siri performs the slightly incredible seeming task of listening to your voice commands, understanding you and providing answers either from within your phone or by surfing the internet on your behalf. Ostensibly then Siri acts as a state of the art personal assistant, or robot butler.

The robotic voice and linguistic challenges presenting Siri have spawned a plethora of spoofs, a huge volume of people use Siri just for the Hal 9000 comparisons or for the joke of asking it philosophical questions or trying to confuse the computer into giving comic replies. Another group of customers just find Siri completely befuddling, not understanding the capabilities of Siri or the fantastic value of these functions.

The functions Siri do provide however are many and each can be extremely valuable to somebody who understands how to use them.

The Siri will dictate and send messages to people at your command, perhaps at first this doesn't seem like the most time saving device as you still need to think of the message, dictate it and spend the time asking Siri to read it back and make sure it is written correctly. When travelling in a car however the potential of this function is unlocked, when your eyes can't leave the road and your hands can't leave the wheel, Siri will read text messages out to you and dictation allows you to compose and send texts a will, even whilst driving.

Siri will also search for information online on your demand. All you need to do is ask it for weather reports and Siri will automatically search and read out what it will be like, saving you a lot of time and fiddling. Siri will keep your diary for you and keep you up to date with all your engagements and reminders.

So Siri is a super futuristic gateway to organisation success, its more than just a time saving device, once you understand the functions Siri really can act as a personal assistant.
