Siri is one of the coolest smartphone features to come around since, well, the advent of smartphones. It takes the personalization of your daily tasks to a whole new level. Siri’s also incredibly fun to use, and as many websites dedicated to it can attest, it has a very quirky dry sense of humor. Most of the things that I’ve used Siri for I’ve picked up from the original Apple presentation of iPhone 4S plus a few additional adds and online tutorials. I’ve used Siri mostly to place phone calls, send text messages, add items to my calendar, and lookup information online or figure it out using Wolfram Alpha. However, there are many more only slightly more complex and ingenious tasks that Siri can be coopted into doing. Unfortunately, like with most other Apple products, Siri didn’t come with a detailed user manual. “Talking to Siri” more or less fills in that need. It’s a very short little book, but it will definitely increase your ability to get the most out of Siri. For me some of the most useful tidbits of information were the workarounds around Siri’s inability to use Twitter, Blogger, or many other such outside messaging/posting services. It is very likely that in the future there will be an “official” way of contacting these services directly, but in a meanwhile it’s possible to tweet using Siri by sending text messages to a particular Twitter-affiliated number. You’ll find many such little nuggets in this book, and if you want to become a Siri power user, then you should definitely check it out.
