Synopsis:

With Siri, iPhone 4S users can get the answers and actions they're looking for, just by speaking to their phones. But, as pioneering users have discovered, Siri takes some getting used to: it's all too easy for Siri to misinterpret and frustrate you. Talking to Siri is the solution: the concise, practical Siri guidebook for everyone. Renowned Apple experts Erica Sadun and Steve Sande help you talk to Siri in ways it'll understand, so you get exactly what you want from it. You'll discover which categories Siri responds to best, and learn how to make the most of them. Sadun and Sande reveal the best ways to set up Siri in your preferences, manage your interactive conversations, and perform tasks ranging from checking the weather to doing math. Packed with practical how-tos and real-world examples, this book won't just make Siri work better for you right now: it'll help you find new ways to use it that you never even imagined!

About the Author

Erica Sadun writes lots of books and she blogs at TUAW. When not writing, she’s a full-time parent of geeks who are brushing up on their world-domination skills. According to her academic dosimeter, she has acquired more education than any self-respecting person might consider wise. She enjoys deep-diving into technology.

 

Steve Sande also writes way too much. He’s the hardware editor at TUAW, and recently logged more than one million words written for the blog in just over 3 years. He’s written a number of books for Take Control Books and Apress, is married to a rocket scientist, and spends his days being bossed by a cat.
