It’s a very useful feature while you’re driving.

    Very nice!
    I just will be happy whit an app that do this:
    You Say : “time”
    Iphone respond: “ten hours, ten minutes, am”
    I would be awsome

    “Download Xmas 4.2.1 untethered Jailbreak”

  • And someone will release somthing better…like with infiniboard, etc. and folder enhancer. That’s the reason why I’m not going to buy it…

    really sucks we have to jailbreak, tweak, hack and buy stuff that comes stock on Andriod..Im getting tired of this BS

  • deuce

    glad to see that cydia takes forever to load other phones too

  • yeah I gonna try this later looks good

  • Voice control seems to suck for the most part, to me. I can get it to call a few folks, but not all, and not all the time. And, I can NEVER get it to play the artist I said (Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies, Metallica – popular bands it won’t recognize for me).

    would be great if it would have speech to text like android does.

  • Manuel

    I think this is a great idea! I always use voice commands on my bike for iPod controls and “What time is it?”. I’m wondering if you can make it to read your calendar entries..

  • bill

    It is now available in Cydia.

    Anyone know where the database file are located? I use Backboard and switch between themes often. Backboard makes a backboard of all settings and data so you can cutomize settings for each theme. Result,I have to enter all voiceactivator commands for each theme each time I add a new one.
