Synopses & Reviews
Sweet-talk Siri® for iOS 6 into doing practically anything!
In iOS 6 and OS X Mountain Lion, Siri is more amazing than ever—and it’s even better when you really know how to talk to it. Now, two top Apple® tech experts show how to talk the newest version of Siri into doing more than you ever thought possible! Look up what you want to do, and you’ll find tested step-by-step instructions for getting perfect results—including new ways to do everything from checking football scores to posting on Facebook!
With Siri, iPhone 5 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 2/e 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!
