Porting Siri to other iOS devices requires piracy, likely won't be a reality

iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd has gone on the record stating a port of Siri to other iOS devices outside of the new iPhone 4S will require piracy, and likely won't ever see the light of day as a consequence.

Anyone hoping for a "port" of Siri from iPhone4S: pending a very low-level A5 exploit, it likely can't be done without piracy

Apple updates Pages, Numbers, and Keynote with iCloud support

One of the announced features of iCloud is the ability to keep all your files from Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps up to date. The update to those apps that bring this support is now available.

I am particularly excited about using Numbers with iCloud. I use Numbers on my iPad to record my students' grades, but sometimes I forget to bring my iPad to class. It never fails that those are the days that a student notices that I made a mistake and needs a grade changed. Before iCloud, I would make a note in my notes app and make the change later. Now, I'll just open the spreadsheet with Numbers on my iPhone, make the change, and it will be reflected on the spreadsheet on my iPad. Win.

Apple's new Cards app hits the App Store

Apple has released their new Cards app which allows you to create physical cards personalized with your photos and text and mail them right from your phone.

I just tried it out, and within minutes, I created a card with my daughter's photo, added my own text, and ordered it to be shipped to my mom. I would like to see more card templates in the future, including some that are "just because". However, you can change the text to any of the templates and make it your own.

When I first learned about cards, I was indifferent about it because I didn't expect to use it much because I'm not the type of person who sends other people cards. However, now that sending a cards is so easy, and so personal, and so affordable. I think I'm going to start sending out more cards.

TiPb Asks: Are your TV and movie apps working with iOS 5 AirPlay Mirroring?

While we haven't had time to test all of them, but off the bat we're getting mixed results with AirPlay Mirroring of iPad 2 TV and movie apps. CityTV wouldn't work -- it cited contractual obligations. CTV did work and so did Global. Crackle was buggy. We're trying more now.

Some TV and movie apps use Apple's built in media controls so AirPlay works automagically. Others... have opted out. We were kind of hoping AirPlay Mirroring would let us work around it. Maybe it will. Or maybe Hollywood will update to shut it out of more apps. We shall see.
