Siri is an amazing being. It is certainly not the first talking bot which has ever existed, but it just might be the most popular one (after the Space Odyssey’s HAL 9000, of course). Along with the superior camera on offer, Siri is one of the biggest reason so many people have chosen to buy iPhone’s latest model. However, everything has its limitations, and after a while, you get used to the responses Siri has to offer. Siri does not have access to an infinite amount of data, and if you repeat questions, or even ask similar ones, you are sure to get a reply that you have already heard from Siri. That’s why the new tweak named Awesome Facts for Chatbot/Siri is such an important addition to the Cydia store. This tweak pushes Siri to new limits, and adds a lot of facts and trivia tidbits to its reservoir of intelligence. If you have got this tweak installed on your iPhone 4S, or any other iDevice having a ported version of Siri, you can start a really long and intelligent conversation with Siri.
Awesome Facts for Chatbot/Siri is yet another Cydia tweak which is based on AssistantExtensions, and that is why you will need to have it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch before you can start using this awesome tweak. The add-on itself is available in the BigBoss repo as a free download. Once installed, you won’t see any new Springboard icon or Settings menu, as it will take effect without any prompting. To activate Awesome Facts, launch Siri and say “Let’s chat”. Once you say that, Siri will take a while, and finally Chatbot will be loaded to its interface. Now you can start conversing with the new and improved Siri. To do so, say “Tell me an awesome fact”, and let the magic begin.
Chatbot will ask you questions about yourself, and have a proper chat. If you don’t want that, simply ask any general knowledge question to it, and you will be provided with its answer. When you request an awesome fact from Siri, you might get an interesting fact then, too. To get Siri back to normal, just say “Goodbye”.
There was not noticeable lag after the tweak’s installation and everything worked just fine. Despite all its awesomeness, Awesome Facts for Chatbot/Siri is a free tweak, so if you have got an iPhone 4S, or any Siri enabled device, do give it a try.
