    Me personally I use it every night for my alarm clock, always schedule my meetings for it and to call people i use purely siri for this...same for quick texts when i leave work.

    I use it alot more than I thought I would. How about you? are you using it more than you thought?

    I am. I think it's great for when I'm driving, I love that I don't need to touch the phone to read & send texts.

    Driving + 64gb iP4S + Siri = awesomeness

    Me: "play some music"
    Siri: "Playing all songs..."

    :cool:

    I use it for all the things described here. Great for safe use while driving.

    Though Siri does get tripped up on certain things, particularly unusual words and names. For example, I asked it to play "Mylo Xyloto" (Coldplay's new album) and it was totally stumped. I think that one's just not gonna happen.

    I use it for texting/replying/reminders and to have her open the pod bay doors. I don't know why but it tickles me.

    Remimders and alarms are great. Just the speach to text via the keyboard mic is a GREAT improvement for answering a quick text while on the road. This will save lives!

    Setting reminders, and alarms. Looking up random locations of things instead of opening the Maps app.

    How do you get Siri to read new texts? I tell Siri to read new texts and it says you can reply Or read again. If I say read again she says you can reply or read again. Stumped.

    I've used it the most for setting an alarm.

    Funny once I told Siri to wake me up at 5 and she goes "I set it for 5, don't wake me up" Haha guess Siri likes her sleep

    I use her mostly for alarms, but also playing music, and sending texts.

    I love Siri

    So far

    Read and reply to SMS whilst driving
    Music whilst driving
    Timer when cooking
    Reminders
    Calling people
    Sending some SMS
    Sometimes use it to manage the calendar too

    General stuff like google search and weather

    And reading my messages


    Awesome tool

    Same here. I can't believe how fast I can dictate messages, text, emails, etc.

    I haven't figured just how long I can talk before I have to stop and let it catch up. Anybody know the official amount?

    It is amazing how accurate it is. Like, 95%.

    When driving, using it to play songs and respond to texts. When not driving, alarms and reminders, primarily.
