Description

Your time is valuable. Siri spends it wisely.

These few minutes opened my eyes . . .

I was driving and was crazy busy. I had just got my iPhone and thought I'd try Siri out. I told Siri to find the Patagonia store in Chicago, since I needed to return a jacket.

She found it.

Then I asked her to call the store. She called it. In minutes my return problem was solved.

Then I had her schedule appointments and reminders for me.

Then she gave me directions home.

In those few minutes, I started to understand all Siri could do for me. So I researched EVERYWHERE- books, videos, articles on all the things Siri can do. I was amazed.

I showed it to others.

They were amazed.

They  had no idea Siri could do all that.

So, I created the ultimate course all about Siri.

It's guaranteed that you'll learn something you'll use.

Discover how Siri can greatly boost your productivity, organize your busy life and make life a heck of a lot easier.

Time is Money. Have Siri save you time.

More about the course:

Are you too busy, trying to get caught up?

Would you like to be more organized?

Do you forget things and even appointments?

Would you like an assistant to help out?

You have that! Siri can:

Read your texts to you.

Take dictation and answer those texts.

Figure out the tip.

Schedule appointments for you.

Be like your own personal D.J., playing songs and stations as you wish.

That's just a sampling of things you'll learn in this fast-paced course.

Siri will help juggle your busy life.

This is something you'll probably use every day. Get this course and Siri- your own personal assistant / private secretary can help you:

Get more done.

Boost your productivity.

Make your life a heck of a lot easier.

Even if you already use Siri, trust me, you'll be amazed at how much more Siri can do for you. No longer will you forget appointments and errands, or spend extra time making calls, and texting.

She'll streamline your life; make it more organized, and fun.

Who can use a little more of that help?

Siri is your own efficient virtual assistant, drama-free private concierge, and super brain, always at your fingertips.

Siri is available on all the Apple Watches, iPhone 4s or later, iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation), and even your Apple computers with Sierra OS or higher. (OS 10.12.6 or higher.)

If you get or have an Apple watch, Siri is there for you too.

This course will help you avoid “texting neck" since Siri will be doing most of your work. Did you know hunching over to work on your smart device stresses your spine, eventually causing miserable back and neck pain, along with wrinkling the neck?

Siri is a vital business tool, schedule organizer, homework helper, & concierge.

This is the ultimate course to master Siri and become a Siri Ninja.

Make your life more carefree, clear, efficient.

Time is your most valuable commodity. Save it with Siri.

Here's how Siri will read a Kindle book to you.

Tip: If you turn on voice over and you're not in Kindle, Siri may start saying everything on the screen. (Without having Siri turn on voice over, and turning on manually, this happened all the time.) If Siri is "stuck" in saying what you're pressing, simply hold down the home button and say, "Siri, turn off voice over." Then start all over in the Kindle app.

Remember to turn off voice over when you're done. If you forget, just hold down the home button and say, "Siri, turn off voice over."I hope you enjoy having Siri read to you as much as I do. :-)
