AssistantExtensions: Use Siri To Tweet And Search For Videos On Youtube (Video) [Cydia Tweak]
Posted on January 25, 2012 by SiriHacks
AssistantExtension by K3A is a new Cydia Tweak that extends Siri’s functionality. It currently allows you to open Apps, send tweets, turn on/off SBSettings toggles, talk with the integrated chatbot and even use Siri to search for videos on YouTube.
AssistantExtensions is already a great tweak and offers most things other tweaks like OpenSiri, VoiceUtils or SiriToggles do. But AssistantExtensions doesn’t stop there. With AssistantExtensions it’s easy for developers to write new Plug-Ins for Siri. There are some examples on K3A’s website (link down below).
The following commands are currently supported:
System commands: “tweet ” or “launch ”,
“brightness to XX %”, “restart springboard”, “generate a random number”, “say ”, “should I ?”.
More commands soon.
Toggles: “turn on ”, “list toggles” or “list switches” to get a list of toggles and their states.
Chat Bot: You can chat with Siri. To start, just say “Let’s chat” and wait a moment. Loading times will be improved a lot in future releases.
The only extension available right now is YouTube. (This extension is already integrated in Assistant Extensions and allows you to search for YouTube Videos by saying “Search Siri Hacks on YouTube”)
This is a list of some ideas for new extensions:
Complete social network integration (what’s new on facebook, post on facebook, …)
Search for known sites like IMDB, eBay, …
Remote controllers – control your Mac/AppleTV with Siri

This tweak completely disables Siri for me... I've removed SiriToggles and OpenSiri before installing AssistantExtensions and when I say "Hey Siri" it will show what I've said and will continue no further. I have rebooted, respringed to no avail. After removing this extension Siri goes back to normal?

I think this completely killed my Siri. I had it, it updated before I went to bed last night and now siri is completely useless. No response, no recognition. Even after uninstalled this and siri and reinstalling spire. no functionality....
Mine keeps telling me that she can't take any requests right now
if you having problem to connect, you must have sbsettings installed. just go to mobile substrate addons, then disable "spirehooks" and "spireinjector" then try siri it works even in 3g. hope i did help you for this then hit thanks.
Nice tweak i like it, although it did change my brightness to 20% but didn't change it back up to any % when asked, app launch request works to but the status bar disappears for a few seconds before the app is launched.
