There is good news for Apple iPhone users because Apple has acquired a brand new application. It is called as the Siri. I am sure most of you would know what exactly a Siri application is. Well, this application is nothing but voice recognition software that responds to the tasks given through voice commands. Just imagine yourself speaking to your phone and getting the answers and results from it without having to type in a text message. It is a very cool application and makes life much easier for the busy scheduled people.
Having a Siri application installed in your phone is just like having a personal secretary with you all the time. If you want to locate a nearby restaurant and you have nobody to guide you, just take your Apple iphone and utter “Where can I find the nearest restaurant?” The application, with the help of its algorithm grasps the voice and searches the internet that matches the relevant term. Here in the above example, the software would comply with the GPS application in order to give you the nearest location of the restaurant. It sounds just too good. Isn’t it?
It is not only about locating the restaurants or making use of the GPS connection with your voice. The utilities are unlimited in the sense that you can virtually do anything with this application. You can book the train tickets, flight tickets; plan the dates of a business meeting etc. This new application in the iPhone invariably makes your mobile a virtual personal assistant.
The sad thing is that Siri is available only in the United States. But it will be made accessible to all other countries in the next few years because Apple has purchased this technology and they are trying to globalize it in a larger scale. At present the Siri application comes only in iPhone and the iPad Touch. But this application will be soon coming in all the other Apple products in the near future.
This particular application is a revelation in the sense that businessmen need not depend on their personal assistants for such small tasks anymore. It is not only about the businessmen, all other Apple iPhone and iPad Touch users can make use of this wonderful application to great effect.
With its Chief Executive, Steve Jobs always on the hunt for making Apple iPhone the best in the Smartphone section with innovative and appealing technologies and applications, it is obvious that Apple will come up with even better features in the next years. One prime example is the company’s acquisition of the Intrinsity, one of the leading chip makers in the country for a whopping $121 million and in a few days it came up with the news that it has acquired the Siri as well just for the sake of improvement.
We do not know much about the Siri brand’s present state as a single stakeholder but it is sure to live long and strong until Apple uses this application in all its products.
