I think like a lot of iPhone users, there is a love hate relationship with Siri. I love the idea but often hate the reality.
When Siri works it is brilliant. I have bluetooth installed in my car and find that this is where I tend to use Siri the most. It can be a great way to get things done while on the move. To be honest I’d love to use Siri while at my desk but when in an office full of people I’ll admit to feeling a bit sensitive to chatting away to my phone.
There has been a lot of chatter about what needs to be done to improve Siri and while I’m sure Apple are working on this I think there’s a lot to be said for good network connectivity. Since using an iPhone 5 on LTE (4G) she does seem to work more consistently.
The point of the post today though is to help you learn more about your little computerised assistant. iMore.com, a blog I’ve been following again just recently has done a series of tutorials on how to do specific things with Siri. In reality there is an art form to “speaking Siri”. While Apple may market the concept that you can just talk to her, it does help a lot if you know how to talk to her.
Check out some of these posts to get better acquainted with her:
