Does anyone know how to launch CamerAlert with Siri. I can get him to open other apps, but not CamerAlert. This would be a useful feature for me whilst driving.

I'm using iOS 7.0.6 on an iPhone 5S.

Thanks

works for me... :/

"launch cam-ralert"

even "launch camera alert" (with an obvious gap between) works

Still didn't work for me, so I tried a hard reset on my iPhone and now it works.

Siri started off as a gimmick for me, but now I'm finding him particularly useful when driving.

I use it quite a lot when driving. Pressing and holding my handsfree car kit button fires up siri.

I also learnt recently that you can say "read my messages" and it reads out any unread text messages and you can speak your reply to them too.

I've just tried it and Siri does launch CamerAlert - when I'm at home and the phone is connected to our wifi.

I have found that Siri often has a problem ringing contacts if the phone is not connected to a wifi or if it doesn't have a 3G connection.

So it might be that Siri needs a data connection of at least 3G or a wifi connection to ring a contact or launch an app. Has anybody else found this?

Regards,

Siri needs a data connection to work as all processing is done in the "cloud".

Just ask Siri!!

Also try turning airplane mode on and then try Siri.

And, if you want to make the kids laugh (or yourself) just ask siri: "what does the fox say?"

repeat a few times ;)
