Jailbreak Only: Add Another Functionality to Siri

We’ve lately been on a Siri streak first covering the new competition, Evi, and then providing you with a way to easily tweet using Siri. Still on the same road, today we’re going to show you how to make Siri your own personal translator – the catch is, you’ve got to have a jailbroken iPhone 4S.

If you’ve got the desire to jailbreak, the process is extremely simply and hardly tedious at all. You can see our tutorial here. On the other hand, the new tweak became available recently and is named Lingual.

Lingual allows you to do what no other Siri tweak does. It promises to translate spoken English phrases into any language, of 30, that you desire. You simply input the text to Siri, proceeded by the language that you’d like to have Siri cleverly switch to.

Language support includes the following languages:

Arabic, Czech, Danish, German, Estonian, Finnish, French, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Haitian, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Latvian, Norwegian, polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Russian, Slovak, Slovene, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian, Vietnamese, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

Lingual is available for free on Cydia and should be a quick, little download surely worthy of your time.

The imminent release of another iOS iteration hopefully will bring all of the tweaks that we’ve been posting about to non-jailbroken users. Apple certainly doesn’t want people doing what the Chronic Dev Team have made possible for iPhone 4S users so what better way than to add all of the functionality that a jailbroken Siri offers to users who haven’t exploited, if you will, their iPhone devices. We’ll just have to see in the coming months; inevitably, Apple will have to expand on its current creation, which is in “beta”, to keep up with any current competition and anything that arises in the near future.
