Siri to Allow Users to Order Movie Tickets in iOS 6.1
Earlier in the week Apple released iOS 6.1 Beta to developers and among the new features made available were improvements to Maps error reporting and lock screen changes. Today, another feature has been revealed, one that may be more useful to some as opposed to others: in iOS 6.1, Siri will help you get to the movies.
According to the folks over at 9to5Mac, U.S. movie goers will be able to tell Siri what movie theyíd like to see and Siri will help them. What makes the feature a bit more interesting is that users can even say something as vague as ďthat new Pixar movieĒ and still see a result.
As of right now, developers are reporting that this feature isnít supported by all theaters (supported theaters are currently listed with a little ticket icon) and as of right now, this feature only works in the United States. The tickets are purchased through Fandango and if you donít have the Fandango app installed, Siri will help you with the process.
Itís smaller and convenient features like this that really help ease everyday situations for the average person. If you have iOS 6.1 and happen to come across a new feature, let us know so we can share it with everyone.

As opposed to opening an app and pressing 'buy tickets'..
I would probably never even use Siri.
It's a cool thing to have, to show off. But for other tasks, I don't find a use.

Crazy that no one finds Siri useful. Gettin directions never been easier. Movie show times. Finding a restaurant.
Do I use it all the time? No but when I want to she is pretty damn useful

I find Siri very useful - however: I would compare the innovation to the Bluetooth headset. Especially when they first appeared in the late nineties: bt headsets were very awesome gadgets. The only problem is that the guys walking around looking like they were talking to themselves (using bths) came across as complete douches. Same thing with Siri. Might use it privately for something, but don't really want to come across as the complete douche talking to myself.

I fully admit I haven't come close to utilizing Siri for all she's capable of, but I've definitely found a few valuable uses and will keep expanding. Reading/sending texts while driving, getting directions, making phone calls, and quickly setting a timer are all things I do regularly using Siri.

Siri needs to be able to launch all native iOS applications. Its supposed to be a personal assistant right?? :]

It's a Nice Addition but i like do it myself sometimes, although i'm SURE someone will disagree.

I just tested it and I launched app store, setting, calendar, mail, contacts, reminders, weather, game center, clock, notes... i haven't found one she doesn't launch.
siri is the most underrated feature on the iPhone. it is AMAZING. so intuitive. I was sold when i did the following.
me: Siri, schedule a meeting with Elia at 4PM Tuesday.
siri: you already have a meeting scheduled at 4 shall i make it at 5pm?
siri: here is your meeting with Elia at 5PM shall i create it
Come on that is freaking awesome!
