And the Siri tweaks continue rolling in...
If you remember our review of VoiceUtils yesterday, then you already know that because of the jailbreak for the iPhone 4S that the Siri-based jailbreak tweaks are going to start rolling in. Any other iDevice users shouldn't feel left out either. These Siri tweaks appear to work just fine with the free Spire Siri port that was released by iOS developers and hackers Grant Paul and Ryan Petrich. Yes, it will require a Siri server if you use Spire.
Anyways, this new jailbreak tweak dubbed SiriToggles by iOS developer Hamza Sood will give you even more Siri functionality that we just know that all of you have been dying for. They are voice-based toggles that you can use to control the functions of your iDevice. Additionally, they could make a replacement for SBSettings. The complete list of features below:
- Find out your battery level
- Change screen brightness
- Launch applications
- Enable/disable Wi-Fi
- Enable/disable Bluetooth
- Enable/disable airplane mode
- Enable/disable cellular data
In order to toggle something such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, or cellular data you have to say either, "enable/disable" or, "turn on/turn off." If you want Siri to tell you about how much battery you have left, then the developer recommends that you say something like, "how much battery do I have left?" or, "what is my remaining battery percentage?" If you want Siri to change your display brightness, then you should say something like, "set/change back-light/brightness to 50%." You can say whatever percent you want, of course. If you want Siri to launch an application for you, then simply say, "launch insert application name here" which will of course launch the application that you specify.
SiriToggles does require iOS 5 and Siri capability. You will not have any settings to configure after installing SiriToggles, but the abilities of it are already versatile. It's not hard to use and Siri can already usually make sense of what you say, for the most part that is. I think that the functionality is definitely useful and it's something that many Modmyi readers have been looking forward to using on their jailbroken iPhone 4S. I have to recommend this, there's no putting it down.
