Siri Protocol Cracked, Android Port On The Way
Since Siri appeared on the fruit phone, we have seen a similar Android application called Iris show up. Well, after some extra effort being added to get the app to behave and understand us better, a few devs were able to crack Siri’s protocol. According to the original source, the guys at Applidium have Siri on the operating table and want to share what they’ve uncovered.
We are able to use Siri’s recognition engine from any device. Yes, that means anyone could now write an Android app that uses the real Siri!
This may be blocked by Apple very soon but the developers mention that it should be ok if using for personal use only. If you are interested in using Siri’s protocol to make your own apps, the devs have compiled a set of tools for that.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
