    Default VoiceActivator Tweak Coming to Cydia

    The developer behind a number of popular Cydia titles is getting ready to release a new voice control tweak that greatly extends native iOS functionality. Grant (@chpwn) Paul, who developed ProSwitcher with @Ryan Petrich, is previewing his upcoming VoiceActivator tweak via a YouTube video he's posted on Twitter.

    Many people who have used Voice Control on the iPhone have noticed the severe limitations of the app. If you want to do anything more than make voice or FaceTime calls, listen music or find out what time it is, Voice Control isn't going to be much help to you. What VoiceActivator does is give you a speech interface to @rpetrich's Activator, so you can use voice commands to do any action that Activator supports, like launching apps and opening webpages. In the video, @chpwn shows off how you can use VoiceActivator to take a screen shot.

    It's only been a little over a month since @chpwn asked people if they'd be interested in such an app, so the response was apparently good enough to motivate him. Much as the ProSwitcher app presaged iOS 4 multitasking, this tweak might be a preview of things to come: Apple has been hiring top voice recognition talent and may be adding functionality like this to future versions of iOS. jailbreakers, as usual, won't have to wait that long: @chpwn says he hopes VoiceActivator will be up on Cydia this week.

    Never really used voice control, wasn't accurate enough for me and I feel embarrassing in public. But this is definitely great news.

    Hopefully there will be more functionality in the future, such as the ability to add calendar events ("Add event 'Party' at 'Bob Smith home' at '8PM on Thursday'").

    Apple needs to go head and make a 64GB iPhone 5 with Dual chips and at least 10 -15 of cydia's top tweaks instead of stealing hacker ideas bit by bit, just say f**k it, and take like 10-15 ideas at once.....

    And also make theming part of the phone....

    That would be ideal....and stop alot of jailbreaks, since that's there main goal....though id still probably

    My Fav Tweaks:

    1. Barrel
    2. AndroidLock XT
    3. DeepEnd
    4. GraviBoard
    5. InfiniDock
    6. SleepFX

    I feel like the community has finally started to innovate again. The past year has felt like it's just been theme release after theme release after theme release (with few exception). I am happy to see that the sleeping giant is waking.

    Great looking tweak, but Jesus, lose the stupid music on the video! You can barely hear what he's saying. It's a voice app demonstration. I'd like to hear what you're saying, not hear some retarded music.

    This guy hit the nail on the head. That would be f'in great!

    Alas...this is Apple and we might not see that functionality as stock for another few years so a Cydia add-on is definitely what we need.

    Moving forward! I'm looking forward to the day when Apple releases voice to text on the iPhone! I think they would do a tremendous job with it, just like multi-tasking and copy/paste.
