AssistantExtensions is a new tweak that lets you extend Siri's functionality. It includes built-in support for additional commands including tweet, launch app, search YouTube, toggle switch, and more.

Using a plug in architecture developers can add custom functionality to Apple's assistant.

Extensions can very easily react to recognized speech and present a text response. In addition to a simple text response, extensions can also create embedded Apple snippets like Clock, Weather, etc and can also create a brand new, custom snippets with custom graphics. For snippets, the extension loads its resources from a bundle or loads a nib which can be created in XCode's InterfaceBuilder. No private frameworks are needed. There is no limit to what kind of extension you can develop.


AssistantExtensions includes a few built-in extensions including:

● System commands: tweet 'text_of_the_tweet', open 'application_name' or launch 'app_name', brightness to 'XX %', restart springboard, generate a random number, say 'what_to_say>', should I 'do something?'.
● Toggles: turn on 'toggle_name', 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.
● YouTube - searches YouTube and shows results with thumbnails, example: "Search Lady Gaga on YouTube"

You can download AssistantExtensions from the BigBoss Cydia repository.
