Thread: SiriPrefs Project Officially Released, Launch Apps With Siri, Bing, and Google Voice

    Default SiriPrefs Project Officially Released, Launch Apps With Siri, Bing, and Google Voice



    Near the end of December we covered an interesting non-jailbreak tweak called SiriPrefs that would allow Siri to open applications, access menus, and other device specific categories. Well the Siriprefs project is officially live.

    Israeli developer DanyL (Dany Lisiansky) developed the tweak which is actually a set of network tools that work together allowing Siri as well as Bing and Google Voice to open applications. Because the project involves a DNS Server, Transparent Proxy Server and Web Server set up on the user's home network a VPN must be set up in order to use Siriprefs away from the user's local network.

    DanyL has posted a nice step-by-step guide on how to set up the network tools. The only caveat is users need to be running Debian (a free Linux/GNU OS) or a Debian based distribution of Linux to setup the network tools. Once running Debian the rest of the setup is a series of scripts entered via terminal. The step-by-step guide is available here, as well as a video that walks users through the steps.

    Obviously, this tweak is more difficult to implement than jailbreaking and installing packages via Cydia, but it also doesn’t require a jailbreak and can work on none Siri enabled devices through Bing and Google Voice.

    As much as I love Jailbreak applications and tweaks, workarounds like this—while not as neat as the numerous packages littering the many repos– are just as amazing. Even more amazing is the fact the DanyL’s Siriprefs project is here to stay as Apple claims there’s no way for them to block project now or in the future.

    Good work, but seems like more of a hassle than anything.

    What's with the desire not to learn anything new? You should feed your brain instead of waiting for someone else to put in the time and you just sit back and reap benefits without learning... #justsaying

    I agree. Makes it well worth the time when you have to go in up to your elbows and feel like you actually accomplished something.
