S Voice is the new feature provided in the latest Samsung Galaxy SIII, You can say that S Voice is a clone to the Siri a feature in iPhone 4S. S Voice works in the same way the Siri works like searching a term on internet, providing weather information, dialing a number etc. There are some additional features in S Voice which I believe Apple will counter in next generation iPhone 6 and new iOS 6.
I am using iPhone 4S the day it was available and I can say that I am utilizing the Siri upto 1 or 2 percent of its actual potentials. Same may be the situation with you. Now you can read this small book with the title “Siri For Dummies” released by Marc Saltzman for understanding and utilizing the Siri functions and Siri secrets.
What could be cooler than asking your iPhone 4S questions and having it reply? This handy little book shows you all the cool things Siri can do for you, so you can get the most from your iPhone’s voice-activated personal assistant. Let Siri read you your messages, locate facts, direct you to the nearest sushi bar, and so much more!
This is the case many time that you are telling Siri to dial a name but it is not recognizing it properly and giving unusual results. Sometimes you may need to twist the actual contact name so that the pronunciation is understandable to Siri or Voice Control and it can find the correct contact from your contact list. Here I am giving you the very simple way you can tell Siri and Voice Control the alternative phonetic name of your choice for your contacts or you can add nicknames also for contacts.
Below are the steps to Make Siri Recognize Uncommon And Difficult Contact Names:
1. Open the contact you want to modify.
2. Click Edit
3. Scroll down to find “Add Field”
4. Tap the “Phonetic First Name”
5. Give the name of your Choice and tap Done.
6. Similarly you can give the nick name for each contact if you want to be used by Siri for easy recognition.

Evi is the new app that you can say is a British rival to the Siri. If you are an iphone ipod or ipad user you are aware of features of Siri which is a personal talking assistant, a big hit, provided in iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5. Why I am writing Evi vs Siri because after few weeks of release Evi has gained much attention from the iPhone users and almost half a million downloads have been recorded during three weeks of release of Evi.
Due to huge popularity of the Evi app it is also reported that apple is going to remove the Evi from App store (not sure). True Knowledge CEO William Tunstall-Pedoe was called and informed about this issue from Apple as reported by TechCrunch.
Some of the Evi Features include:
Evi works both for iOS and Android operating systems
Evi is smarter than a search engine it gives hyperlinks related to the question asked and you can open directly in the browser
Evi has collection of 635 million facts about 28 million things (updating regularly)
Evi is updated continuously by its creators by scouring Wikipedia and yellow pages etc.
Evi can hold millions of simultaneous conversations
Evi has impressed british users since it recognizes their regional accent
You can make voice or text input and can chat to Evi in simple English
Provides local information for UK and USA i.e shopping, dining and news etc.
Evi recognizes your location and provides local information
Many visitor to my blog are saying that siriport.ru is fake and fraud and siriport.ru/1.crt not working, but many have already confirmed that siriport.ru/1.crt is working perfectly especially on siriport oniphone 3gs, they were having problem in the beginning but it was connected later.
We are not aware of what is the intention behind this release of siriport but I believe the port is genuine and may be due to lack of funds they are unable to upgrade their server to entertain all commands. I have not found any suspension in my account or other information like people are saying they will steal some secret information from our device. I installed siriport using repo.siriport.ru and activated siriport certificate and it was running OK which later on never connected but again since many visitors to my blog and my YouTube Channel are commenting that it is working good.
If it is not working on your iphone, ipad or ipod touch please wait for few days there is a good news that the i4Siri is going to be released very soon which will enable all of us to use Siri like on iPhone 4S. Please keep visiting my site so that I can share with you the best stuff. Also share with other contacts and don’t forget to donate to the i4Siri project.

Here I am explaining how toactivate Siri on iphone 4 after applying Siri port on a jailbroken iPhone 4. Few days back I posted tutorials for installing and downloading siriport.ru/1.crt certificate and installing siri resources using repo.siriport.ru. Many people have completed the installation process for siriport and siri certificate but unable to activate Siri on iphone 4, ipod touch or iphone 3gs. Some times siriport is not installed properly and some steps are missing therefore I suggest you to re visit this guide and recheck. If you have installed siriport properly the Siri option will be available in settings menu.
You can activate siri on iphone 4 by going to Settings —-> General —-> Siri —> On. After this you also need to activate the location service by going to Settings —-> Location Services —> Siri—-> On.
To run the Siri you don’t need to tap an icon actually it is running in background, only you need to hold down the Home button for a while or raise the iphone to your ear height and speak.
Sometimes these options are changed so you can try this combination. Go to Settings —-> General —-> International —-> Voice Control, there you will find two sections Siri and Voice Dial Only. Select Siri for your language and Siri is set to work.
You will also need to activate Siri in location services go to Settings —-> Location Services —–> Scroll down to Siri and turn it ON
