There has already been numerous Cydia tweaks released for the iPhone 4S and Spire enabled devices to extend the functionality of Siri. Due to this fact I thought it would be a good idea to review the most popular Siri Cydia tweaks currently available. Thus, in this article from iJailbreak.com you will learn about some of the most popular Siri tweaks currently available in Cydia.
The Hands-Free Control Cydia tweak will allow you to activate your virtual personal assistant by simply speaking out loud “Siri”. The way this Cydia tweak works is by constantly listening for the voice command Siri as a background process. Due to the fact that this Cydia tweak is constantly running in the background it does have slight effects on your battery life, but nothing too outrageous. Another neat feature to this tweak is it allows Siri to prompt you with “Yes?” upon being activated.
The SiriToggles Cydia tweak is sort of like SBSettings for Siri. Upon installing SiriToggles you will be able to toggle numerous system-wide settings like Airplane Mode, WiFi and Cellular Data. Additionally you will be able to launch applications, reduce the screen brightness and even check your battery level. The Siri Toggles Cydia tweak will seriously extend the functionality of Siri!
The VoiceUtils Cydia tweak will very simply grant Siri the ability to reboot, restart SpringBoard, enter safe mode and power off your iOS device. An additional feature this Cydia tweak provides is the ability to launch applications. If you are just after this feature, however, I would install the SiriToggles Cydia tweak instead.
The Sireet Cydia tweak will allow you to tweet directly from Siri. My only gripe with this Cydia tweak is that there is no confirm to send option. The reason I think there should be such an option is due to the fact that occasionally Siri mispronounces words. Thus, it would be nice if I noticed an error I could stop Siri from tweeting that specific tweet and allow me to I re-say my tweet.
The Cydia tweak AssistantExtensions, gives Siri much more power than what it has now. It’s not just a tweak, but it is a framework that increases the possibilities of what can be done using Siri. The AssistanExtensions Cydia tweak is based upon MobileSubstrate and can be used to control a lot of things on your iPhone 4S. For example you can tweet, launch apps, set the screen brightness, generate random numbers, toggle system settings and so much more. If you are looking to a Cydia tweak to combine the features of tweaks such as SiriToggles, VoiceUtils and Sireet then AssistantExtensions is the tweak for you!
The Lingual Cydia tweak allows you to translate words or phrases to over 30 different languages using Siri. This is extremely useful if you are traveling abroad or simply are dying to know how to say certain things in another language.
Custom Siri Background
The Custom Background Cydia tweak will allow you to go into the Settings.app and select an image from your Photo Library or even take a picture directly from the Camera.app to use as Siri’s new background.
Siri Mic Colors
The Siri Mic Colors Cydia tweak allows you to easily change the Siri mic icon that appears when you activate Siri. For example, you can change the boring old Siri mic icon to a green icon, a yellow icon, a red icon and even blue icon.
In this article we ended up listing almost all of the available Siri Cydia tweaks, but at this time, because there are not many Siri Cydia tweaks available, we thought it would be worth your while to look through them.
