AssistantExtensions Takes Siri To The Next Level: Open Apps, Send Tweets, ChatBot And More [video]

New day, new tweak in Cydia. AssistantExtensions takes Siri to the next level. Allows you to open apps by voice, send tweets, set brightness, use SBSettings toggles, search YouTube and more. There is also an integrated chatbot so you can chat with Siri about anything you want. AssistantExtensions is available for free in Cydia via Big Boss repo…

Developers can make their own extensions using simple objective-c API without a need for linking with any custom libraries or frameworks. Read more about it here…

NOTE: after a couple of quick tests, it seems there are no conflicts between AssistantExtensions and SiriToggles. However, if you want try AssistantExtensions it is recommended to remove SiriToggles first.

These extensions are built-in and available after installing AssistantExtensions:

  • System commands: “tweet <text_of_the_tweet”, “open <application_name>” or “launch <app_name>”,
    “brightness to XX %”, “restart springboard”, “generate a random number”, “say <what_to_say>”, “should I <do something>?”.
    More commands soon.
  • Toggles: “turn on <toggle_name>”, “list toggles” or “list switches” to get a list of toggles and their states.
  • Chat Bot: You can chat with Siri. To start, just say “Let’s chat” and wait a moment. Loading times will be improved a lot in future releases.
