How To Tweet With Siri [SiriProxy Plugin] *Update* Now Available

How To Tweet With Siri - SiriProxy Plugin

With the help of @plamoni‘s Siri Proxy@netpro2k managed to teach Siri how to tweet. This method is much more elegant than the SMS method, but it currently requires a complicated setup.

The commands are actually interpreted by Apple’s servers, and then intercepted by a proxy I have running locally. I am then simply using Twitter gem to make the post. Confirm and cancel work both by voice and by clicking the onscreen buttons. You may notice it appears the resutls are coming from WolframAlpha. I just used this response format as it allows you to return arbitrary text and images, as well as a confirmation. There is no interaction with wolfram’s servers.


Netpro2k’s code has been pulled into the main repository and can be downloaded here.

Siri Meets ELIZA [SiriProxy Plugin]

@plamoni just released a Plugin for his SiriProxy. It allows you to talk to ELIZA, the famous computer therapist from the 60′s. For those of you who don’t know what ELIZA is, here is a short description from wikipedia:

ELIZA is a computer program and an early example of primitive natural language processing. ELIZA operated by processing users’ responses to scripts, the most famous of which was DOCTOR, a simulation of a Rogerian psychotherapist. Using almost no information about human thought or emotion, DOCTOR sometimes provided a startlingly human-like interaction. ELIZA was written at MIT by Joseph Weizenbaum between 1964 to 1966. Wikipedia

To use this Plugin, you need to have the SiriProxy by @plamoni up and running.

You can talk to ELIZA online here.

Hacker Creates a Proxy Server For Siri, Allows You to Add New Commands to Siri

Applidium recently cracked Siri’s security protocol and found out how Siri communicates with Apple’s servers. That knowledge was used by @plamoni to develop a proxy server to add new functionality to Siri. The source code of his proxy server is available at GitHub.

We have already seen a similar project called HubotSiri, although its source code never got released.

@plamoni released an impressing video demonstrating how his tweak can be used to control a Wi-Fi Thermostat.

Currently, setting up the server requires solid knowledge of certificates and openssl. As soon as a public jailbreak for the iPhone 4S is released, we will most likely see this hack as a tweak in Cydia.

What new commands would you like to see in Siri? Let us know in the comments below.

You can download the source code here:

Siri Talks English With A German And French Accent (Funny Video)

SiriForYou posted a video of Siri talking English with a German accent. In the videos, Siri is running on an iPhone 4, but it does not connect to Apple’s servers, so all we hear is “Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network.” and “Sorry, I’m not able to connect right now.”. This hack is probably achieved by switching the spoken language to german or french while the actual language remains english.

Hands-Free Control lets you start Voice Control with your Voice (Siri support coming soon)

Hands-Free Control is a Cydia tweak that provides a continuous listening service that lets you activate Voice Control by saying “Siri”. As soon as a public jailbreak is available for the iPhone 4S, the app will also add support for Siri. Because your iPhone is continuously listening in the background, you will notice heavy battery drain as long as this app is enabled.

Hands-Free Control is available in Cydia for $1.99 as an idroductory offer.
