Siri unexpectedly opens the With Mitt app
||Date Originated:||02-Jul-2012 04:53 PM|
Tested on iOS 6 beta 1 and 2. After installing Mitt Romney's iPhone app, With Mitt, from the App Store and word-for-word asking Siri, "Siri, give me a place within a mile that starts with an S." It opens the With Mitt app.
Steps to Reproduce:
Download With Mitt from the App Store. Once it is finished downloading, hold the home button until Siri activates and beeps. Tell Siri word-for-word, ""Siri, give me a place within a mile that starts with an S."
Siri either finds a place within a mile that starts with an S and displays it to the user, or offers to search the web for one. The correct response can be seen by asking Siri a slightly different query, "Siri, give me a place within a mile from here that starts with an S."
Siri is dismissed and Mitt Romney's iPhone app, called With Mitt, opens.
New Siri features in iOS 6, specifically the ability to ask Siri to open apps. The feature works like this, if you activate Siri and say, "Open Safari", Siri will do so.
This is quite strange. Can anyone explain this to me? My guess is that it is getting triggered by the "within" in the query matching the "With" in the name of the With Mitt app.
