Install Siri on iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G Courtesy H1Siri From Cydia Store

We have seen lots of developers trying their hearts out to bring the Siri port on the iPhone 4 and other older iDevices (other than iPhone4S which officially has the feature out of the box),many of them tried different tricks to fool the apple servers for getting their devices recognized as iPhone 4S while using the feature.

Last week we also reported about siriOus tool which was pulled hours after the release over the Cydia store,since the developer wanted to try  out different voice recognition technology for his app.Now as reported earlier today by iClarified yet another app has surfaced over Cydia claiming to be working on older iDevices named H1 Siri.

Though it’s not yet clear about how the port works for the older iDevices but it’s belied that like other hacks its also using a proxy to service the requests from the users, so expect somewhat buggy experience and request failures because of excessive traffic load on the server.

Checkout the H1Siri video in action:

[How To] Create Custom Gestures in iOS 5

By this time most of us have now updated their iDevices with the latest update iOS 5 which was released last week along with the release of iPhone 4S.So its now time for some interesting tidbits for iOS 5 and try out some new features on your updated iPhone,iPad or iPod Touch.

I stumbled on to a great how to on creating custom gestures in iOS 5 courtesy Cult Of Mac which demonstrates this feature on the iPod Touch updated with the latest build.With this new feature mainly targeted for the accessibility on the system but  one can do many things on their  iDevice  with it.

As shown in the video the user can stretch his imagination for any kind of gesture to use on the device and record it and save it by a custom name and later on can use it in any application for custom use.For example,gestures like scroll which needs swiping the finger on the screen can be just done by tipping the screen if the scroll gesture is already have been recorded as a custom gesture.

We are getting some problems embedding the video ,for the time being checkout the Video after the break.
