When originally released, I did not use Siri all that much besides checking to see what would be thrown back at me when I asked a strange question … or to see if she can understand my boys better than I can.
However, something changes about two months ago and now I use Siri every day, multiple time a day, and I expect her to work every time. That’s a big change for me as I always expected Siri to get it wrong in the past.
I’m not a power user by any means, but the things Siri allows me to do quickly and easily make her an invaluable resource.
Here is how I use Siri:
- Set timers for many different things (cooking, the laundry, keeping track of time for the boys, reminding myself to do something in the near future, etc.).
- Create initial calendar events.
- Create tasks in Reminder.
I also make heavy use of the dictation feature of iOS while I am holding my newest son. However, a good portion of my day is made easier by allowing me to just dictate to Siri the above things and then let the algorithms take care of the rest.
