VoiceActivator: full voice control for jailbroken iPhones

updated 03:00 am EST, Sun January 30, 2011

New app extends Voice Contol function

A Cydia app developer is close to bringing VoiceActivator, a full-featured voice control app to the Cydia store for jailbroken iPhones. While the iPhone currently offers Voice Control on the iPhone, the feature is relatively limited. Currently, iPhone users can use Voice Control to make calls, control music and use it for FaceTime. The new app for jailbroken iPhones extends this functionality considerably further as the video embedded below shows.

Users familiar with Google's Voice Actions are currently able to carry out much more wide-ranging functions. These include being able to initiate text messages, get directions, view a map, go to websites and search Google, for example. The VoiceActivator app now brings this level of functionality Voice Control for the iPhone and will be available soon.
