When Apple launched the iPhone 4S in October of 2011, one of the most talked about and probably its headline feature was the inclusion of the Siri intelligent assistant software which attempted to make life easier by being able to accomplish tasks given to it through a simple voice command. When invoked by the user, Siri is ready and able to take spoken orders which can range from setting meetings up in the calendar, checking the location of friends and family or even pulling up a weather forecast for most locations in the world.
Well known and respected developer chpwn has finally released first legal Siri port to public for older generation iOS devices. Dubbed as Spire, the port allows iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G/3G and first-gen iPad users, jailbroken on iOS 5, to run Siri, which has official been available only for iPhone 4S users.
About one week ago, we published a post talking about how this one developer managed to open Siri up for other developers so they could come up with plugins that would extend its functionality beyond the usual wake-me-up, play-me-this-song, tell-me-the-weather type commands. We’ve talked about a couple of pieces of software that make use of this and, today in this post, we’ll be talking about four more plugins.
