Siri vs Siri: The battle of the iPhone 5 turn-by-turn navigation apps

I just got my iPhone 5, a white one like my iPhone 4S, and decided to have some fun with it.

I multitasked the Waze and built-in Maps apps to hear the two Siri voices battle it out giving me directions. Sometimes Siri in the new Maps app speaks with a slightly-higher pitch than the same voice in Waze. They also use different phrases to give directions, and not always at the same time. When they both try to talk at once, one will interrupt the other like they’re fighting over who will tell me something. ^_^ #GeekFun

    Siri actually loves to sing. She just needs help with picking out appropriate songs. Look:

    And Siri is savvy about Captain Jack Sparrow now! I asked her “Why is the rum gone?” Look what she said:

    Yep! “@DisneyAmanda3 Does Siri know “who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me” now? °o°”

      Siri, Mickey is not fictional although he’s been used in many fictional stories: He’s a great actor, made many movies, and you can meet him in Mickey’s Movie Barn at Disneyland. Obviously, you need to get out more, Siri! ^_^

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
