Have you ever been in a situation where you needed a picture of something? Now you can simply ask Siri to show you a picture of something and she will find what you’re looking for and show it to you. The new, free add-on for Siri, dubbed JpgToSiri
by iOS developer Vladislav Korotnev
, is an AssistantExtentions extension that will give Siri the capability of fetching images from the Internet at your command.
As illustrated by the screenshots above, JpgToSiri requires to you say, “Show me a picture of [insert term here]” and she will respond back with, “Here is a picture of [insert term here]” along with an image of whatever you queried. The good news is, unlike some other AssistantExtensions add-ons for Siri, you do not need to enter chatty Siri mode and wait forever for her to load up. You can use the add-on immediately when you Siri up the Siri interface.
The Siri add-on definitely is not a necessity; it is simply for entertainment purposes only. You can also use it if you are not sure about what something is to get an idea about it. Whether or not you feel JpgToSiri is going to be a useful add-on for you, you can at least have the peace of mind that Siri will now be able to do something she could not do prior to installing the add-on.
In addition to giving Siri the ability to fetch and show you images, the developer of JpgToSiri also gives you some added options for the images you pull up using Siri. As shown above, a green banner can be tapped to copy the image, copy the image’s link, show the image in Safari, or save the image to your Camera Roll. These useful features make sharing images or keeping them for yourself very easy, however the buttons look slightly awkward in comparison to the usual rounded-corner buttons we see in iOS.
For the most part, this tweak is worth installing if you have Siri capability – Spire included. It's free, however it also makes your device do more, which is the reason why most of us jailbreak in the first place. Be sure to give it a try!
