  • [Review] HalfSiriFirst - Half-Screen Siri First


    If it simply annoys you that Siri opens up in a small and confined space ready to help you as you launch her, then a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed HalfSiriFirst by iOS developer rvirajm will make sure you launch Siri in a space much larger than normal Ė half of the screen. After you make your first query, Siri will open up in full-declared (full-screen) mode as usual with her answer to your query.

    Right off the bat, you can see the difference in the screenshots above. The developer makes it perfectly clear in the Cydia description that he made the tweak for entertainment purposes only and it compliments tweaks giving you the functionality of changing Siriís wallpaper by helping you see more of it, more of the time. The tweak doesnít make Siri any more efficient or zippy.

    If youíre content with the way Siri looks, like most people, then you probably wonít find this tweak to be useful or pleasing. Similar tweaks have also tried to change the size of Siriís initial launch; QuickSiri puts Siri in full-declared mode from the start and TinyAssistant tries to make Siri even smaller by putting it inside of an App Switcher-like interface. HalfSiriFirst meets these two tweaks in between.

    Cosmetically, the tweak does look slightly awkward being that Siri was made to fit into a set amount of room. HalfSiriFirst requires Siri functionality to be used, including but not limited to Spire and there are no options to configure. It's free, so give it a shot and see if you like it.

      I first thought this is totally useless, but then I thought its still another hack so good on ya for making it.
      It's not for me but someone else might like it.

      The more hacks the better. Not everyone likes the 1 style that Apple force everyone to have so we need more options like this.

      At first I was using common sense, but then my ideology kicked in.

      This is absolutely pointless, it doesn't even move or change the Siri button whatsoever! At least stop reporting these useless tweaks.
