I have been using my new iPhone 4S for a few weeks now and I must say that I have found it well worth the upgrade (I was using a 3GS before this). Siri, the new voice capable digital assistant has been a HUGE help to me! Here are some of the things that I am finding most useful:
Voice dictation for texts, emails, and general information from Siri – simply touching a button and speaking what I want to send in a text or emailed is great! I know some have said their Andriod as been able to do the for awhile, but they have not. I can say “Send a message to Bob that says I will email the information when I get to the office” and Siri will send Bob a text for me. Or even something like “text my wife and tell her I am on my way, but I am going to be a little late” will send a text to my wife (yes, Siri knows those relationships) telling her I will be a little late. Very powerful stuff.
Location based Reminders – Siri can create reminders based on location so you can be reminded to do something when you arrive or when you are leaving a specific location. “Remind me to tell my wife about the Ladies Bible class when I get home” creates a reminder that is triggered when I pull into my driveway. You can create shopping lists that automatically open when you arrive at the store or remind you to do something when you get to the office. I use these constantly.
There are many more things I like about the iPhone 4S, but these top my list. More later.
