Did you know that Siri can type for you? Let Siri hear what you have to say and she will type it. She can send text messages for you without having to move any other finger than your thumb!

What will happen when Siri does not understand what you are saying? Siri is not that “stupid” as you may think. She will understand if she made a mistake or not and propose you alternatives. Then you can tap on her proposals or you can type your version.

Unfortunatelly Siri cannot put punctuations when she types whatever you dictate. She supports commands that will instruct her to place punctuations, but it works on Mail only at the moment.

Siri can also find where your friends are through the Maps application. Just ask her “Where is John?” and she will provide you a spot on the Map.
