Train Siri to work smarter for you
There are so many ways Siri can make your life easier. But if you don't know the proper commands, you might get a lot of unwanted sass. Here's a growing list of tips and tricks that Siri a better personal assistant.
Siri doesn't always get it. Sometimes it's ambient noise, and other times, it's a mystery.
To correct her, swipe down to reveal your initial command, and use the "Tap to edit" option to make a correction. When you're done, Siri will come up with a new answer, and she'll better understand you in the future.
You'll sound a little silly, but using punctuation (and smileys) is as easy as saying the punctuation. For example, "Hey comma how are you question mark smiley face" will turn into "Hey, how are you? :-)"
Don't let Siri stop you from being social. If you've set up your Facebook and Twitter accounts on
your iDevice, Siri can handle status updates. Just say, "Tweet
[insert tweet here]" or "Update Facebook [your message here]."
Siri can even understand hash tags, so "Tweet Go USA exclamation point hash tag world cup" turns into "Go USA! #worldcup."
Can't decide? Let Siri handle it for you. Just say, "Flip a coin," and Siri will randomly populate heads or tails. And, she's so authentic that sometimes the coin falls in the crack of her virtual sidewalk.
Don't be afraid to talk on and on about your upcoming appointment -- Siri can handle it. In this example, Siri noted the name of the event, the time, its location, and the invitee. To top it off, the guest even received a calendar invite.
