iPhone shared grocery list using Siri and iCloud

This is really handy: start a list called “Grocery” in the “Reminders” app, and then share it with your shopping partner’s iCloud account on iCloud.com.

Boom: Shared grocery list, voice controlled. When you get the the grocery store, just say “Show me my grocery list” and Siri will pull it up for you.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Get iOS 5 installed on both phones, and set up iCloud with Reminders syncing turned ON.
2. On one of the phones, tap the Lists icon in the upper left corner of the Reminders app. Tap “Edit” in the upper right corner.
3. Add a new list called “Grocery” (if you’re using Siri, it’s better that it’s “Grocery” singular, and not “Groceries” plural, for better sentence flow).
4. Log in to the iCloud.com account for this phone.
5. Go to Calendar.
6. Click the “share” button (looks like an RSS icon) next to the “Grocery” list you created.
7. Enter the iCloud ID of the person you want to share it with.
8. Have them confirm the e-mail they get.



Launching Apps With Siri

Many people don’t know this but many app developers enable their apps to be opened from other apps or the web using whats called iPhone URL schemes. For example, go into safari and type in the URL box fb:// and hit return. It opens the Facebook app on the iPhone. Or try twitter:// or IMDB:// and you will see it open those apps on your phone directly. I thought this could be potentially useful using Siri in the following way.

1) Create a Contact in your address book and call it Shortcuts (I called it applications, apps is a reserved siri word).

2) Create multiple text fields (home page fields) with these Url schemes. Then you can tell Siri - “Show Shortcuts” and it will pull up that contact sheet and list all the URL shortcuts which can be clicked on.

Now, doing this just to open an App is probably not useful, but the iPhone URL schemes also support advanced functions in apps which I think could save time. For example, if your enter into a text field: fb://birthdays it will take you directly to the Facebook birthdays page within your Facebook app. Or try fb://albums and you go right to facebook photo albums. Unfortunately, these enhanced URL schemes are hard to find but i figured if people knew about them, the experimenting can begin.

Here is a link to a partial list of known iPhone URL Schemes: http://wiki.akosma.com/IPhone_URL_Schemes

Siri Dictation

 

Say this …

… to do this

new line move to the next line (like pressing “Return” on a keyboard)
new paragraph to start a new paragraph
cap to capitalize the next word

For example, saying:
I named my pet pig cap bacon

produces the text:
I named my pet pig Bacon

(interestingly, if you say “Kevin Bacon”, Bacon is automatically capitalized for you)

caps on … caps off to capitalize a section of text

For example, saying:
caps on twenty five ways to eat bacon caps off

produces the text:
25 Ways to Eat Bacon

all caps to make the next word all uppercase

For example, saying:
I am hungry feed me all caps now please

produces the text:
I am hungry feed me NOW please

all caps on … all caps off to make part of what you say uppercase

For example, saying:
I am hungry all caps on feed me now all caps off please

produces the text:
I am hungry FEED ME NOW please

no caps to make the next word lowercase

For example, saying:
I like no caps Mike

produces the text:
I like mike

no caps on … no caps off to make sure part of what you say is all lowercase

For example, saying:
Our friends no caps on Steve and Tina no caps off live in California

produces the text:
Our friends steve and tina live in California

space bar to prevent a hyphen from appearing in a normally hyphenated word

For example, saying:
This restaurant is first space bar class

prevents first-class from being hyphenated, and produces the text:
This restaurant is first class

no space to prevent a space between words

For example, saying:
This is the best no space tasting bacon ever

produces the text:
This is the besttasting bacon ever

no space on … no space off to prevent a section of text from having spaces between words

For example, saying:
This is no space on the best tasting bacon no space off ever

produces the text:
This is thebesttastingbacon ever

“period” or “full stop” to place a “.” at the end of a sentence
dot .

For example, saying:
The dot number pi is three dot one four

The point number pi is three point one four

The point number pi 3.14

(note the subtle difference between saying point and dotdot works between words)

“ellipsis” or “dot dot dot”
comma ,
double comma ,,
“quote” or “quotation mark”

(although, if you need to place some text within quotation marks, using the “quote … end quote” commands may be more accurate)

“quote … end quote” or “quote … close quote” to place quotes around a section of text

For example, saying:
She said quote see you next week end quote

produces the text:
She said “see you next week”

apostrophe

(although in many cases, apostrophes are automatically inserted, like when saying Sam’s new iPhone)

exclamation point !
inverted exclamation point ¡
question mark ?
inverted question mark ¿
ampersand &
asterisk *

close parenthesis )
open bracket [
close bracket ]

(note the difference in spacing between this and when saying dash)
