Sara Is A Siri Clone For All iPhone Users Including iPhone 2G Users
Siri is all over the planet, soon after its launch back in October people started to heart Siri for it’s amazing dictation capabilities and other cool features like setting an alarm, finding launch and dining places and other easy tasks. People who jailbroke their iPhone 4S with Absinthe and Cinject back in January are pushing Siri to it’s limits with tweaks like AssistantExtensions. The only turn off here is that Siri is iPhone 4S exclusive and Apple has no plans to introduce Siri on iPhone 4 or other older iOS devices and they have a reason for it as well. Jailbreak Developers begun their work on Siri port for older iOS devices in October but there were a lot of hurdles in this process first it was encrypted ramdisks which made all Siri ports illegal then Apple released a minor iOS 5.0.1 which allowed developers to port Siri on older iOS devices because ramdisks were NOT encrypted in this minor release.
Many of them got successful in their project and managed to run Siri on iPod Touch 4G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. CHPWN also released a complete working Siri port for older iOS device by the name of Spire which worked perfectly fine on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4G but there was a catch, you have to have an iPhone 4S if you wanted to run Spire. Now a developer has released Sara which a clone of Siri though Sara has limited functionality and it’s not as accurate as Siri is but it still works on all iOS device by all I mean ALL of them including iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G, iPod Touch 2G, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, and other iOS devices as well.
Sara’s GUI is more like Siri and in some area it beats Siri in my opinion but then again it’s not that accurate and you won’t get full Siri like functionality from Sara.
