If you don’t have the iPhone 4S, but you still want to be able to use Siri on an older generation device, then you can actually consider using Sara.
Sara is an excellent alternative to Siri and not only does it work on the iPhone 4S, but also on older generation devices, including the iTouch 4G, iPad 2, iPad 1G, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.
The open virtual assistant works in the same way as Siri, with the only difference between the two being the interface which has been altered so that it doesn’t resemble that of Siri’s entirely.
Sara the best cydia replacement for siri has been hailed by a lot of iPhone users who’ve said that this is by far the best alternative to Siri yet. When installed, the Sara jailbreak tweak comes with tons of advanced features including the ability to search for songs, launch apps, control your computer and so on. Therefore, if you tried installing Siri on your jailbroken iPhone via Proxy server or Spire tweak and failed, then you have nothing to worry about. Sara can be installed in seconds and it offers you the same functionality as her older brother.
As you may have expected, Sara is packed with tons of features you can take advantage of, including the ability to check your mail, read the newspaper via
RSS, view the movie database from the nearest cinema, OCR, translate and support (up to 37 languages), perform Google searches, search videos on YouTube and many more.
Define your needs
Probably one of the most impressive features of Sara is the fact that users can create plugins for special commands and once Sara is adopted by the masses, you can be sure that there will be thousands of such plugins available for download. Sara’s ability to read QR codes may be just as important. The way it works is that once you scan the barcode of a certain product,
Sara can help you find the nearest store that sells that particular service or product.
If you’re already sold to Sara and want to install it on your phone as soon as possible, then you should first of all jailbreak your iOS device. If you have an iPad 1G, iTouch 4G or iPhone 4, then you can jailbreak them using redsn0w version 0.9.10b5.
On the other hand, if you have an older iOS device, then installing Sara on it is possible only through WhiteD00r 5.1.
