    I was just thinking about some other functions which can be applied to that system. Do you miss anything in Siri? What else, in your opinion, would be grate to do using Siri? Any new functions you would add?

    I think we may have already had a thread about this, but first of all they need to bring back some of the functions Siri was able to do when it was just an app (e.g. make reservations, check flight statuses, etc.)... It would also be great for her to be able to check scores of games....for instance if I said "What is the score of the Bears game" and she came back with the score, time left in the game and maybe a few quick stats that would be so useful.

    Siri is extremely useful and I use it almost every day for something...but it is certainly lacking! The previous poster mentioned a few things....but it also can't add contacts, edit contacts, delete notes, or delete anything really. If they want to go full on voice control it needs to be less restrictive. It also needs to be able to communicate with 3rd party apps. Would be nice to say Play (favorite podcast) and have it open stitcher and start playing.

    Having used it with the integrated Bluetooth systems in two of my cars I'd like to see a mic selector next to the microphone button. The reason is that it seems that Siri's ability to recognize speech varies from Bluetooth mic to mic. I'd like the option to switch to the iPhones internal mic in situations where the Bluetooth mic is just noisy enough to throw it off without having to navigate through multiple screens to get to the preferences.

    Make the voice recognition actually work. I do not believe that's in the gift of humanity's current level of technical progress.

    yeah, I also think that voice recognition could be much better. It is one of the reasons why I'm currently working on siri-like app.

    For the first I would like to make a small thing, like voice-controlled facebook but perfectly tailored. But for now I have no idea what kind of activity Siri-like modules should provide to improve you everyday lifes... please help me! :)

    thank you very much for all of your ideas! They are extremely helpful for me.
