  • WARNING - Siri is feeling VIOLENT today!

    I told Siri to text my wife and tell her that I had HeyTell'd her .... HeyTell is a cool walkie-talkie type app ..... and Siri got violent!

    I always TRY to check what Siri says before I hit "Send", but sometimes... well...

    Sure. Blame Siri which can't defend itself

        Is this sort of like the auto correct of iPad?

          Kinda sorta --- you SPEAK to your iphone, and Siri types what you say.... she often comes up with some real bloopers!

            I was complaining to my daughter one day about iPad autocorrect, and she told me that she felt the same way. She has a friend with a little girl named Fayth. And my daughter said she kept asking her friend how fatty is doing.

              My worst one (and I was trying to find it) was when I texted my Police Captain telling him "I will double check for you", and Siri typed "I double love you" ----- and I didn't look at it til FOUR HOURS LATER!!!!!

                So you texted your wife to tell her you already called her on a walkie talkie app that is supposed to replace having to text someone? OoooooKaaaayyyy.

                BTW I can see the heytell app being just a bit inconvenient or embarrassing if you are somewhere on business and you get someone chatting to you out of the blue.

                  She NEVER updates her apps, so sometimes her messages get "stuck", and she has to reboot her phone to get them.

                  Yeah, fortunately, it lets you know you have a message, but won't automatically play it until you open the app.

                        what makes heytell different from just using the phone to make calls?

                          She's busy at work, and so am I, so when one of us thinks of something, we can "heytell", and the voice message just "stays there" (with a notification that there's a message) until the other person answers it. That way, if one of us is on the phone, or in a meeting, we don't have to play telephone tag, or "I'll call you later"....

                          It's way better than texting because....
                          A) you can "heytell" while driving just by "push to talk" without typing or looking at your phone
                          2) since it's VOICE, you have all the "tone of voice" stuff so you can tell if you're kidding, or whatever

                          It also has a map function, so I'll heytell her, with "map on", telling her "I'm on the way home", and she can see my position on the map.

                          It's pretty neat for "oh, can you pick up a dozen eggs on the way home" --- or short messages that don't need to be a whole conversation.

                          Like, when you're driving -- you can heytell something while stopped at a traffic light without "being on the phone" in rush hour or heavy traffic.

                          It's just really convenient.

                          (And, I STILL like to talk to her on the phone - I have ALWAYS loved her telephone voice! )

                            here is a review of three walkie-talkie apps: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/06/te...anted=all&_r=0

                            since it is from the NYTimes, Lao Tsu will appreciated it.

                              Excellent article describing walkietalkieisms, and I just may try the voxer app ---- sometimes, as I said, heytell gets "stuck" ---- though I think that's because my wife never EVER updates her apps or OS.

                              AND--- NYTimes approved!!!!

                              And I wonder how many people know that "VOX" stands for "Voice Operated Relay" or "Voice Operated Communications / Transmissions".
