What do you use Siri for most often? How often do you use her?
I wasn't aware that software had a gender.
Phone calls and texts mostly. Haven't really used her for much else honestly. Maybe I need to though.
to set my alarm, not else really
Reading/writing texts while driving. Occasionally I will ask her the temperature before heading outside.
Mostly for reminders, it's SO much faster than typing the while thing in with all the input fields.
Also for texting when I'm alone. Won't use it in public. I use the dictation more than Siri for that because Siri cuts you off. The dictation button when you're in messages stays on while you think about what to say and put in your punctuation.
Texting while driving, setting reminders/alarms, checking movie showtimes/ratings, navigating (before Google Maps), stuff like that. She's pretty handy when she actually works...
Setting my alarm (every night)
Making calls (few times a day, doesn't work on people with complex names)
Launching apps directly from the lock screen (occasionally)
Dictate quick emails/sms (not very often, siri still has problems understanding what I say, so I usually just use it to quickly bring up the sms/email screen)
Everytime I ask her a question, I get the wrong answer. Or she asks me if I want to search the web.
I find her useless.
Mainly reading/writing texts while driving
To find hookers. lol
To set alarms, finding directions, texting with dictation and opening apps
Setting timers/alarms/reminders and playing particular songs while driving.
Scheduling calender events
Reading back texts / iMessages
Sending texts / iMessages
Launching songs, albums or playlists
Asking it silly questions to entertain the kids
No way! Same here!
But I rarely use Siri. Occassionally, I will ask what time Chelsea FC is playing rather than looking it up on my phone. Other than that, I really don't use the feature all that much.
It doesn't but obviously siri has a female sounding voice.
Anyway, I tell siri to call people a lot while I'm driving. I use it for reminders... "Remind me to stop at Target on my way home from work to pick up ______" and I use it when driving to listen to music from a specific artist.
"Wake me up at __am/pm"
Once in a while I'll ask siri where the nearest ______ is. (restaurant, gas station, etc)
I think the people who have problems with siri just aren't using it correctly. I very rarely have problems with it, and when I do it's usually my own fault.
sometimes to shoot a text if im driving haha. or ill find out how the cowboys are doing.. always not too well
reminders, alarms, notes, google searches, and directions.
- Setting reminders
- Adding calendar entries
- Other uses are mainly for calls/messages while I'm driving on a long journey
Demonstrating to friends what you could use Siri for in a car, if, you know, Siri could understand me in a car.
Which she can't.
Last night I had her send a text message for me. She understood me perfectly and created and sent the message.
I don't use it often because I just got my new iPhone 5 on Monday and haven't thought of more ways to use it yet.
i sometimes use "her" to set my alarm but thats it. i basically forget siri exists tbh
i cant really use siri for texing or setting reminders either because i need time to think what i even wanna say
I use Siri for Reminders and setting the Timer when cooking !
Sports scores, texting while driving, phone calls, and reminders.
Don't have Siri yet
But in just demoing it I know i'd absolutely use the hell out of Timers, Reminders, Notes and Calendar events.
