Apple has recently fallen into a pattern of offering just incremental updates on its existing product line rather than anything new and innovative. Hence the Retina Display on the new iPad and Siri on the iPhone 4S. Both of which are the only features making their respective devices worth purchasing.
Siri may be the only reason worth upgrading to an iPhone 4S, but it’s also something of a gamechanger that, once used, leaves a lasting impression. The voice-activated personal assistant is one of those features that will inevitably become a part of all smartphones (whether Siri or a clone). What we want to know is how you, the average iPhone 4S owner, uses Siri.
This Week’s Question…
As An iPhone 4S Owner, What Do You Use Siri For?
We recently saw, via an infographic, how many iPhone 4S owners use Siri on a monthly basis, a handful of the most common uses of Siri, and some other data points related to the feature. But MakeUseOf readers know better, and we want you to detail what you use Siri to accomplish on your iPhone 4S. If you have an iPhone 4S, obviously. Everybody else can tell us how, if in possession of a Siri-enabled device, they would use it.
Do you (or would you) use Siri for just the basic, banal tasks such as making phone calls, sending texts, and searching the Web? Alternatively, do you (or would you) trust Siri to run your whole life? Much as a human personal assistant would, if you’re rich or powerful enough to employ one. Your responses will not only enlighten and entertain us all, they could spark ideas in others for ingenious uses of Siri.
We Ask You… All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week where we will detail what You Told Us. One reader will be chosen as having made the coveted ‘Comment Of The Week’, having their name put up in lights for all to marvel at and to coo over. What more motivation than that do you need to respond?
‘We Ask You‘ is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. We ask you a question and you tell us what you think. The question is open-ended and is usually open to debate. Some questions will be purely opinion-based, while others will see you sharing tips and advice, or advocating tools and apps for your fellow MakeUseOf Readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
