Sara: Brings Siri-Like Functionality to All Non-iPhone 4S Devices [Cydia App]

Hate it or love it, there is very little doubt that one of the selling points of the iPhone 4S is definitely its exclusive feature, Siri. Now that the iPhone 4S has been officially jailbroken, we have seen various attempts to tweak the application or make it available for non-iPhone 4S devices. At the moment, the best way for anyone to experience Siri with an unsupported device is through a Siri proxy called Spire. But here is a new jailbreak app comes which aims to bring the Siri experience to the older devices.

Sara Siri Jailbreak App
By older devices, I mean really old devices like the original iPhone (if you are still using it), iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and the like. This jailbreak app is playfully named Sara courtesy of a Vietnamese Dev Team. Sara is a free voice recognition utility that allows a Siri-like experience on non iPhone 4S devices. So you can use it to translate words, YouTube search, weather forecast and more. It even has the ability to scan barcodes and QR codes. Unlike Siri, the most impressive feature of Sara is that it can be used in countries outside U.S. and support about 37 languages. The app itself is built in such a versatile manner because you can set it to accept new commands.

But we said Siri-like experience to describe the app because while it is indeed impressive, this is still no Siri. For instance, if you try inquiring about location based commands, the app struggles to give you something that makes sense. Some of the functions don't work like alarm clock, weather can be quite inaccurate and there are obvious grammatical errors.

At the end of the day, Sara is still free and who's to say that the developers won't improve the app over time? It is also a good thing that it works even on very old iOS devices. If you want to try it out, simply add the source below and add the package corresponding to your device:

To install Sara, you obviously need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Fortunately, we have the tutorials that you need. For iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, you will need to download the Absinthe Jailbreak Tool. For instructions on how to jailbreak your iDevice on Mac using Absinthe, refer to our Jailbreak iPhone 4S Guide for Mac or for Windows users, you can read our Jailbreak iPhone 4S Guide for Windows. As for the rest of the devices (A4), you can use our iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak guide. [via RedmondPie]

      The iPhone 4S is currently locked with no unlocked solution whatsoever (no Gevey and Ultrasn0w solution yet), you can only use it in India if:

      1. You buy it in Canada as factory unlocked. (very expensive)
      2. You can buy it in Canada and have the carrier unlock it for you.

      In this case, you are better off getting an iPhone 4S through an Indian carrier.

      Hi,

      The app is quite limited right now and it is ran by a small Vietnamese dev team. Their servers are also quite unstable.

      Hi,

      Must be technical difficulties on their side, their servers must have been hammered since they got featured in the blogosphere.
