Siri: coming to an iPhone near you

6 years ago in Articles, Hot News, iPhone by Brent | No Comments

The iPhone app, Siri is now a full part of iOS 5. This is a pretty cool addition. I have played with the app previous to it being pulled from the app store today and I was very impressed at how much it could do. I thought at the time that the only way for the app to get better would for it to be more integrated in to the phone via the OS. Well, that’s the case as Apple announced today. Siri is here to stay and I can’t wait to try it. Unfortunately, for those of us who want to play, we have to buy the new iPhone that comes out on the 14th. So… I don’t have any idea if I really want to buy the new phone. Seems like a bunch of cool stuff but I’m still on the fence. (I probably will buy it though. LOL)

It understands what you say.

Talk to Siri as you would to a person. Say something like “Tell my wife I’m running late.” “Remind me to call the vet.” “Any good burger joints around here?” And Siri answers you. It does what you say and finds the information you need. And then it hits you. You’re actually having a conversation with your iPhone.
