List of commands for SIRI

fonte: osxdaily

We’ve shown you many of the great and legitimately useful things you can do with Siri, but there is much more to the intelligent voice assistant than meets the eye. Sure you can wing it to find out what Siri can do, but a better solution is to ask Siri directly… and it’ll tell you!

Summon Siri and tap the (i) button to bring up the commands list
OR: Summon Siri and ask “What can you do?”
Either option will bring up an interactive commands list broken into categories, the initial list of Siri examples include a command alongside the category/topic it pertains to:

Call (Name) – Phone
Launch Photos – App Launching
Tell (Name) I’ll be right there – Messages
Set up a meeting at 9 – Calendar
Did the Giants win? – Sports
Give me directions home – Maps
Tweet with my location – Twitter
Post to Facebook – Facebook
Table for four in Palo Alto – Restaurants
What movies are playing? – Movies
Play Norah Jones – Music
Remind me to call mom – Reminders
Email Emily about the trip – Email
What’s the weather today?- Weather
What is Apple’s stock price? – Stocks
Wake me up tomorrow at 7AM – Clock
What is Emily’s address? – Contacts
Note that I spent $12 on lunch – Notes
Where’s Brian? – Find My Friends
Define mitosis – WolframAlpha (for the tough questions)

Notice there’s an arrow alongside each of these entries, and every one of them can be tapped on to see even more specific example Siri commands related to the initial topic.

It’s important to note these are not the only commands you can give Siri, they’re just examples which give you a better idea of the guidelines and frameworks for which Siri works and responds to requests. Look through them and try them out.

Also, when interacting with many of these Siri commands, you can use virtually all of the separate Dictation commands from elsewhere in iOS and OS X to help things along, whether it’s writing out emails, formatting notes, changing punctuation, or whatever else you want done.

Huge List of Siri Commands
If you’d rather see a gigantic list, a while back TUAW took the time to type up many of the commands found in Siri’s example list. It’s pretty extensive, though t’s a bit dated since it’s from the release of iPhone 4S and therefore won’t include newer abilities that pertains to Maps and things like buying movie tickets and finding wi-fi. Nonetheless, it’s a useful list to browse through if you don’t want to navigate through Siri’s menus.

Disabilitare Autoplay Instagram

Da pochi giorni Instagram offre la possibilità di caricare brevi video oltre alle foto. Succede che sfogliando le varie pagine come abbiamo fatto fino al giorno dell’introduzione della nuova opzione se incontriamo un video esso viene riprodotto automaticamente, il che ci fa consumare traffico dati se non siamo interessati alla riproduzione del video oppure rende la navigazione in instagram meno fluida.
per disabilitire la funzione di sutoplay basta fare così:
1) sulla barra di navigazione in basso scegliere profilo (l’ultima icona in basso a destra
2) sulla barra superiore premere l’icona impostazioni ( in alto a destra)
3) scorrere il menù che comparirà verso il basso e impostare su spento la voce “riproduci automaticamente”


Use FaceTime for Voice-only Calls When Video Stutters or is Problematic

Via osxDaily

Ora che con ios6 é possibile usare FT con la connessione 3G, questo articolo puó essere di aiuto a molti!

If you’ve used FaceTime in an area without the best internet connections you’ve probably experienced the choppy video, breaking audio, and other call difficulties that can arrise as a result of poor internet service. Rather than giving up on the communication completely, you can turn the video call into a voice-only call and dramatically increase the calls audio quality. This allows you to basically use FaceTime as a voice over IP (VOIP) service, with very clear voice chat working even when the bandwidth is restricted enough for an otherwise awful connection.
To force FaceTime into voice-only mode:
Start a FaceTime video call as usual
After the connection has been made, hit the Home button on the iPhone, IPad, or iPod touch
This freezes transmission of video but allows the audio to continue streaming. You’ll end up at the homescreen with the iOS status bar showing an active FaceTime connection, saying “touch to resume”, but you’ll notice audio chat works perfectly and the quality of the audio is suddenly dramatically improved.
Presumably the reason this works so well is by reallocating the available bandwidth away from the video channel and all into audio, resulting in surprisingly high quality voice calls. The obvious downside of course is you’ll miss the video chat portion, but if you’re making an important call and either yourself or the recipient is using subpar internet service, a voice call is certainly better than nothing.
This works wonderfully on iPad and iPhone, and it should even work in the Mac OS X FaceTime client if you just minimize the app into the Dock.
Of course, you can always make true VOIP calls with Skype and Google Voice, but since not everyone has those installed on their iPads, iPods, Macs, and iPhones, this FaceTime solution works for just about anyone.
