Siri has been reported to be much advanced than the voice control services on other platforms. Yet its capabilities are still considered to be bit primitive.
You had heard about SiriToggles, an app that lets you change system settings and open apps with Siri. Well, now we have a new tweak added to the list of best Cydia apps and that is the Assistant Extensions, Cydia Tweek which has been developed by Mario Hros a.k.a kexik. Presently, the AssistantExtensions Jailbreak Tweaks only adds a few new tasks like letting you toggle system settings, send and read tweets, and generate random numbers. You can ask Siri to repeat anything you say. It has a built-in chat bot which can be activated simply by saying “let’s chat.” Although there isn’t any extra functionality, yet it can be a fun way to converse with your iPhone.
The commands to help you use AssistantExtensions for iPhone 4S are:
System commands: “tweet <text_of_the_tweet>”, “show tweet <text_to_tweet>” (shows tweet dialog 1.0.1-4 up), “open <application_name>” or “launch <app_name>”, “brightness to XX %”, “restart springboard”, “generate a random number”, “say <what_to_say>”, “should I <do something>?”
Toggles: “turn on <toggle_name>”, “list toggles” or “list switches” to get a list of toggles and their states.
Chat Bot: You can chat with Siri. To start, just say “Let’s chat” and wait a moment.
Assistant Extensions has great potential as it opens the door to the equivalent of Chrome or Firefox extensions for Siri. The developer of this amazing app has offered instructions for developers having programming knowledge to create their own extensions.
