I know I use it a fair bit on the iphone but do you use it as much on the ipad?
I haven't used it much on the iPad, but tend to use it fairly often on the iPhone.
The problem with Siri is the time it takes to hold down the home button, then wait for the "beep beep" then speak into it, wait more for a response, then wait again for a full answer back.
What will make alot of people including myself happy is if we can use siri to turn on settings; like say turn on bluetooth, or turn off wifi, or turn off lte.
Basically siri is just nothing more than a voice information lookup/dictation. Sure you can tell it to text people for you, write emails and those are cool....just siri is too slow.
Yeah the do not disturb through siri would be great for example.
"Siri, close all apps running in the background".
"Okay, all background apps are have been closed".
A reasonable request for the Siri Dev Team.
That would be nice. We don't even have a way to close all apps right now unless jailbroken. That's what I miss the most about being on 5.1.1.
I don't use it much, and haven't really explored what it can really do for me. A lot of my iPad usage is in a shared office, so then I can't really sit and chat to my iPad...
I don't even use it on my phone.
LOL.. I just saw your post and remembered that Siri actually exists on my iPad. It's useless if you don't stay in USA cause the table booking, Movie Tickets do not work.
I use it every once in a while to set a reminder, alarm, appointment, etc... but that is about it right now.
I use it on my phone mostly to send text to my wife while driving but it doesn't get what I say accurate most of the time so it is frustrating to use.
Never use it on my 4s so can't imagine I will on my new iPad 4.
Siri works on iPad with the new iOS 6?
I thought I would love Siri on the iPad but after testing it I really don't have much use for it. I find that I can usually find things faster myself. I would likely use it more on an iPhone, which I don't have.
i now use siri for most of my emails
No, not really.
I use Google voice though.
How do you use Google Voice other than receiving texts?
Excellent idea! Would love to tell Siri to adjust settings. For example, I'm with Sprint (I know) and as recently their 3G signal has been horrible and sometimes kills the battery, I find myself constantly going back and forth to settings to turn 3G on and Off.
the only time I use siri on my ipad is if I accidentally activate her/it?
This doesn't strike me as reasonable since the dev team would already be aware that closing your background apps doesn't do anything that iOS doesn't do already on it's own.
Seriously, it's hard to believe people still believe closing background apps on iOS is something you're expected to do.
Nah. I deactivated it. Saves battery life.
From my experience it can certainly help speed things up.
I mostly use Siri to set timers when I'm doing laundry.
Siri's speech to text has mangled almost every text I've tried to send with it.
All except iPad 1 and iPad 2. iPad 3/4 and mini have Siri.
Got it when the iOS 6 update came to the iPad 3.
Tried it out to see how well it worked. Thought for a few minutes how my 12-year-old, science-fiction-reading self would have marvelled at it.
Not used it since.
Quite honestly, Siri doesn't do much, yet. Like other people have said, it needs to be able to control settings and such.
