Developers at Applidium lab have cracked and reverse engineered the Siri protocol, potentially opening up the voice assistant service to iPhone 4, iPad, Mac and other competitive platforms such as Android, and Windows. According to devs at Applidium – “anyone could now write an Android app that uses the real Siri!”
The hackers at Applidium haven’t reversed it completely, and they haven’t yet created any Siri-compatible alternative software or ported to non-apple devices, but that’s the stated goal of their work so far.
Applidium has posted the details of the crack but in order to take advantage of the tools, users will need access to a genuine UDID from an iPhone 4S. And if you want to be one of those skilled Siri hackers, just Grab the raw code from GitHub and give your ideas wings.
Apple will likely take necessary steps to prevent nefarious attempts to subvert Siri experience. Excited?
