It seems like it’s been a while since we’ve seen any good SiriProxy hacks. If you recall, setting up Siri proxy servers to program Apple’s digital assistant to execute custom commands was all the rage last year. But the movement has since quieted down.
There’s a new video out, though, of a guy using Siri and a Rasberry Pi-based SiriProxy server to control almost everything in his house that may rekindle interest in the community. Watch him control his thermostat and TV, open his garage and more…
It’s been a while since we’ve seen any cool Siri Proxy videos. At one time they were all the rage, with people starting cars, adjusting thermostats, and more, all via Apple’s virtual assistant.
Now that the newness of Siri has worn off, Siri hacks and proxy usage has kind of died down. That is, until now. With the help of a friend — the credit card sized Rasberry Pi computer — this guy is able to open up his garage using only his voice.
Last month, Apple released iOS 5.1 to the masses. The update included few new features, but it did bring Japanese Siri support. This brought the digital assistant’s number of compatible languages up to a whopping… four.
But if Siri doesn’t currently support your language, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Developer Kunal Kaul took matters into his own hands and taught Siri to speak Hindi — with a little help from his proxy server…
Is there a new game of cat and mouse brewing? Reports from non-iPhone 4S Siri users indicate that there may be.
Apparently, Apple has altered its requirements for a successful Siri connection, adding a new token to the mix that has caused problems for those who connect to a 3rd party Siri server on non-iPhone 4S devices.
Ever since the possibility of a Siri Proxy server was first unveiled, it’s been all the rage. The promise of being able to run Siri on older devices? Count me and about a million other people in.
Now you can hardly look around without seeing some blurb about a 3rd party Siri server, and although security (or lack thereof) is still a big concern, it’s apparently not concerning enough to keep the masses of pre-iPhone 4S owners away.
Andrew Sheridan, one of the primary folks behind the i4Siri project reached out to me about a month ago asking me to try his Siri server. Here are some of the results of that trial…
A couple of days ago we showed you how to install the much talked about Siri Proxy Server. That’s the first step to being able to really do some marvelous things with Apple’s so-called personal assistant.
The next step is installing the plugins that take advantage of the Siri Proxy. These plugins range from enabling you to tweet on command, start your car, control your television, or query IMDB’s massive movie database.
In the following tutorial, we show you how easy it is to install Siri Proxy plugins, and we use the IMDB plugin as an example. If you already have Siri Proxy installed, you don’t want to miss this…
We’ve gone hands-on with Siri Proxy, and the things you can do with this handy tool are amazing.
But as you know, at iDB we don’t like to keep all the good stuff to ourselves. For that reason, we’ve created this comprehensive video tutorial and guide that shows you how to run Siri Proxy on your iPhone 4S.
We show you step-by-step what’s needed to try out Siri Proxy yourself…
