Custom Commands Revealed To Work With Siri
Popular iOS developer Grant Paul (more widely known as @chpwn
) recently revealed via a tweet, that he was able to concoct custom commands in Siri. You can see the screenshot of a test command below:
What this discovery really does is prove that Siri can prove to be a more complex and more useful tool than it already is. The ability to create custom commands that function with Siri can open an endless array of possibilities. The commands can lead to a slew of new jailbreak tweaks and packages that could provide further convenience to a number of iPhone 4S users (possibly iPhone 4 users and maybe iPhone 3GS users, if the port comes to fruition). The Siri port
wonít be publicly released until further notice due to the whole legality of the issue though, so don't get too excited if you are still using older iOS devices.
As of right now, it hasnít been made clear whether the custom commands will see the light of day but chances are they might upon the release of the iPhone 4S (and iPad 2) jailbreak. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team recently showed proof of preliminary jailbreak
for the A5 chip based iOS devices but has not provided an ETA, so weíll continue to have to be patient.
In the meantime, we canít help but be excited about the plethora of innovative ideas that custom commands in Siri could lead to. What custom commands would you like to see? Are you excited? Share any thoughts and ideas below!
