Homework? Let Siri Help You in More Ways than One

Siri is an amazing application developed by Apple Inc. for it’s iPhones; it's a virtual personal assistant with intelligence. Among all the wonderful things it can do for you, perhaps, the most important is doing your homework. Even though you are supposed to accomplish the outcome of your homework by yourself, taking help from Siri could save you time by acquiring answers, in seconds, to questions like: What is the square root of 786? Which part of the world is the city Chittagong located? Having this App on your phone is like having a very competent assistant all the time.

Here are a few of the ways Siri is able to help you in doing your homework:

Homework reminder: This is not just like an alarm-like reminder; Siri reminder will pop up on your screen at the most convenient and appropriate time and place. The homework reminder will appear at an appointed time or it may pop up when you are present at a particular place -- you can set it either way you want. It is beyond “automatic”; Siri is rather “automagic”.

Book locator: Siri can help you in narrowing down your search for books significantly. Of course, you can find the book you need to study in a library or you can download it if there is an e-version of it. Nevertheless, the hardest part of searching the book has been made easy by Siri where you don’t even have to type the name of the book.

Organizer with priority scheduler: Siri is very effective in staying organized while maintaining a schedule; you always have access to information on pending assignments, prioritized according to their deadlines. You can even ask Siri about what you have left to be done for this week, you will immediately be provided with a to do list for that period of time.

Siri- Wolfram Alpha- images: Wolfram Alpha is like an encyclopedia of knowledge from all around the globe, and Siri is hooked up with it. You will be amazed by getting a visual image of almost everything if you ask for it. Want to see how a baby elephant is being fed or want to know how the flag of Morocco looks like? Siri will let you see such things in a few seconds.

Solve math problems: It provides incredible assistance for math homework through Wolfram Alpha. Siri helps you better understand different concepts of mathematics, search answers for math problems and do calculations. Moreover, the Siri-Wolfram Alpha combination is handy as it can be used for doing calculus as well.

Apart from these features, Siri is also capable of taking dictations. You speak to it, and Siri will type it for you. How convenient is that!?Moreover, you can engage Siri for making notes on PDF by dictating annotations. Finally, the timers incorporated in Siri are amazing. Are you beat up by your workload and losing concentration? Don’t worry, Siri timers will put you on a period of break you desire or even more, on a humor break. All you have to is ask for it.
