How to Launch Apps or Change Settings With Siri

Have you ever wished you could launch an app with Siri? Or maybe change your iPhone’s settings? Yeah, me too. It seems like such an obvious thing, but Siri just can’t do it. Unless… Unless you jailbreak your iPhone.

So how can you make Siri launch apps, or otherwise do your bidding? Simple. Just install a handy (and free!) little app called SiriToggles, which is available through Cydia. You’ll never look at Siri the same way again.

Once installed, you can tell Siri to do cool stuff, like “launch Pandora” or “turn on [or off] wifi.” Pretty awesome, huh? Honestly, until I discovered this hack, I was completely underwhelmed by Siri.

As far as I’m concerned, you can add this to a long list of reasons to jailbreak you iPhone. It’s not quite as useful as free tethering, but it’s pretty darn cool.

Oh, and if you’re thinking of jailbreaking your iPhone 4S, be sure to check out my post about potential problems with the Absinthe jailbreak — and their solutions.
