International Locations For Siri Jailbreak Package Removes USA Only Locations Restriction From Siri

By  at Saturday, May 19, 2012  

Siri has been around for over seven months now. The iPhone 4S exclusive personal assistant has literally taken the iPhone community by storm. Siri happens to be one of the major selling points of iPhone 4S, a smartphone that looks and feels exactly like it's predecessor. Siri is still in beta, which means that Apple is in the process of tweaking it on a regular basis. By default users can only search for locations in USA, however a new jailbreak package called International Locations for Siri eliminates this restriction and lets users search for locations anywhere they are in the world.

So how exactly does one search for locations using Siri? Well it's basically through simple commands really. For example you can ask Siri about the nearest Pizza Hut from your location, or you can ask about ATMs, petrol pumps, drug stores, convenience store chains etc. As previously mentioned, Apple has only officially opened up this service for USA, it does not work in any other country.

This is where International Locations for Siri steps in. This jailbreak package enables the above mentioned feature for over 100 countries around the world, effectively removing the rather pointless USA based restriction from Apple. Simply download this package, launch Siri on your device and ask it about a location. Siri will definitely respond and will display all of the corresponding locations with respect to your location at any given point.

International Locations for Siri is actually a plugin for AssistantExtensions. So obviously it needs to be installed on your device. If it isn't already, Cydia will automatically download AssistantExtensions along with International Locations for Siri. After the downloads have completed successfully, this plugin can be activated from the Do keep in mind that International Locations for Siri is priced at $0.99 and can be downloaded from the BigBoss repository in Cydia.
