Install Siri GUI On iPad And Make It Look Like A Native iPad Feature (Cydia)
When Apple announced iOS 5.1 to the general public last month, some hoped Siri for iPad would be somewhere on the list. Unfortunately, the fruit company only implemented Voice Dictation, which, though higher than nothing, left the Siri hunters to continue using the alternatives accessible.
Spire can be installed on any non-iPhone 4S iDevice – be it an iPad one or two, iPhone 4, or even an iPod touch. Spire is, without any doubt the most effective way to get the Siri experience on your iOS device without having to chug out some additional dollars for a brand new iPhone 4S.
We have gratefully come back to expect from the jailbreak community, another tweakster has return through to try and improve things for the numerous iPad users running Spire. Developer iPodHacks142 has created a tweak that makes an attempt to compensate for the areas within which Spire still lacks when pitted next to Siri on the iPhone 4S. Full Siri GUI for iPad 1/2 tweak offers the total Siri user interface to any iPad rocking Spire.
‘Full Siri GUI for iPad 1/2’ tweak renews the good, grey linen background seen throughout iOS, replacing the rather bleak jet-black backdrop seen by default in Spire. The visual improvements are present in each small-declared and full-screen modes, perhaps pointing to how Siri may one day look if the Cupertino company permits its tablet device to get pleasure from some Siri loving.
While the black background may not be of huge annoyance to each Spire user, to me, it commits a massive aesthetic faux pas. iOS is enjoyable on the eye throughout, and though Spire is a useful feature, its large, unsightly backdrop takes it down some of notches, spoiling an otherwise great tweak.
Since Spire has not been released for iOS 5.1, Full Siri GUI for iPad 1/2 can only be put in on iOS 5.0.1. It is free to download over at the ModMyi repository – a default in your Cydia source list unless you have opted to remove it.
