#4. Remember that Siri Works with a Wide Range of Apps

Siri can be used to issue commands, ask questions, or provide dictation using everyday speech when working with a variety of the apps that come preinstalled on the iPhone 4S. Become familiar with which apps Siri can be used with, and then discover the best ways to communicate with Siri to get the desired results.

Presently, Siri works with the following iPhone 4S apps: Phone, FaceTime, Music, Mail, Messages, Reminders, Notes, Contacts, Weather, Stocks, Calendar, Find My Friends, Alarms, World Clock, and Timer. It can also be used to access the Internet to perform web searches or find information within Wikipedia, for example.

When it comes to seeking directions, addresses, or locations, Siri works with both the Maps and Yelp! apps, as well as with the GPS and Location Services features of your iPhone 4S. Thus, in addition to tapping into data stored within your Contacts database, for example, you can ask location or address-related questions, and Siri can generate relevant responses to questions or commands like these:

  • How to I get to John Doe's house? (Siri will respond with an answer, assuming John Doe is included as an entry within your Contacts database.)
  • Where does John Doe work? (Siri will respond with an answer, assuming John Doe is included as an entry within your Contacts database.)
  • Is there a Chinese restaurant near me?
  • Where is the closest gas station?
  • I need to find a bank near me.
  • Find the White House in Washington, DC.
