87% Of iPhone 4S Owners Use Siri Each Month, Only 55% Satisfied

Remember in October when Apple held an event to wow us once again? Well, remember after said event, most of the world was left wanting more?

I was on the fence during and after the event, the design hadn’t changed, and there really wasn’t a ‘WOW’ factor to get me to upgrade. Don’t get me wrong, the phone is beautiful and I love the design. The speed bump was greatly received in my house and so was the camera upgrade. But that wasn’t Apple’s main selling point, we were given a virtual “wife” that could do so much for us – at the tap (and by tap I mean hold) of a button.

Since Siri was released back on that chilly day in October, the intertubes has been up and down about their feelings in regards to Apple’s Virtual Assistant. Personally, I have had great luck with Siri, especially after installing tweaks via Cydia – all unlocking Siri’s true potential. But not all of the World has a jailbroken phone, and are left with the stock beta version.

Recently, Parks Associates released the results of a survey showing that 87% of iPhone 4S owners use Siri at least 1 time per month. Siri, which is still in beta, only pleases 55% of those users. 9% of the people surveyed said they were unsatisfied, while the rest were somewhere in between. The two most used Siri functions are making phone calls and sending text-messages, where playing music and scheduling meetings aren’t as popular amongst the people surveyed. Apple is slowing adding more features to Siri, as we mentioned a few days ago regarding Yelp, so we’ll see if Siri’s popularity as well as functionality receive higher marks than these results moving forward.

I am hoping with the success of jailbreak tweaks and Siri, Apple will follow suit as they’ve done with what Notifications has become. Siri has the potential to be an amazing feature – if jailbroken. With what I have experienced since the A5 jailbreak, I probably wouldn’t have been as excited about Siri as I was during the event, or even the day I received the phone.

What do you use Siri for the most? Is it your normal every day phone usage, or do you take Siri above and beyond with jailbreak tweaks?
