Siri integrates with many third party services, but sometimes I feel like Apple could have added more. Unfortunately, if you want more built-in integration, you’re going to have to wait until Apple makes it available. Thankfully, there’s quite a few Cydia Tweaks available that will add more features to Siri. A new tweak called AssistantEnhancer takes Siri’s integration with other services to another level. Check out our video overview below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr_cTtaBfF4
If you can’t see the above video, please click this link.As you can see in our video overview, AssistantEnhancer adds a ton of new features to Siri. You can search through the App Store, Google Images, Amazon, Ebay, and Urban Dictionary. This tweak also adds Pandora, Spotify, and Grooveshark integration to Siri. Also, if you're looking for something fun to do, AssistantEnhancer gives you the ability to search for local events with Siri. For a full list of commands that are compatible with AssistantEnhancer, please click this link. It’s important to note that AssistantEnhancer is packaged with AssistantExtensions. At the moment, AssistantExtensions isn’t fully compatible with iOS 6 and you must disable the “SBSToggles” and “Standard” switches in the preferences within the Settings app. This will prevent your device’s Springboard from crashing when using AssistantEnhancer. Overall, I think this is a great tweak, but it could use a little fine tuning in certain areas. Currently, AssistantEnhancer is available in the BigBoss repository for $1.99.
