  • Posted to Site Design: Siri, in reply to Joe Pacal , Sep 16, 2018

    For some reason it just happens often when I watch a video using the phones speakers. And it's not because someone in the video is saying something which sounds like "hey siri", it just happens with any kind of video of somebody talking. Never happens when listening to music on the phones speakers though.

    At the office my phone is on a dock on my desk so it can hear me well, so sometimes (not that often) when I'm talking it thinks I said "hey siri". I can understand those mistakes, but the one when watching videos is way more annoying, especially as it takes over the whole screen too.

    I use Siri multiple times per day, but the main reason for that is because I have Hue light everywhere and use Siri to turn them off in a room I'm not in or to turn all the lights off when I go to bed.

    The only other things I use Siri for is to set timers while cooking (which kinda sucks as you can only set one timer) and to call people so I don't have to look for them in the contacts app.

    If it weren't for my lights I would have disabled Siri too though, because it's just doesn't understand me half the time and constantly kicks on at the office and even when watching videos with audio on the phone itself.

    The most popular filter list is easylist, so it's likely your api endpoint got added to that one. You can report incorrectly blocked content here, but since the endpoint is also used for ads I doubt they would be willing to unblock it.

    Have you thought about the recently updated point 4.2 of the App Store Review Guidelines?

    Your app should include features, content, and UI that elevate it beyond a repackaged website. If your app is not particularly useful, unique, or “app-like,” it doesn’t belong on the App Store.

    Especially the "UI that elevate it beyond a repackaged website" would seem to be a problem, as you advertise your product with "The app will look and work exactly as it does in the mobile browser".

    It seems like you're taking a big risk here, as to me it seems that according to these rules Apple is very likely to reject your app. Your customers will only notice their app being rejected after they've already bought the product and bought an Apple developer account.

    There were some articles on tech news website recently about these updated rules, and similar app generation services having to shut down. I'm just curious if you have found a way around this.

    I have serious issues with High Sierra on my macbook pro. Ever so often it freezes everything for about a minute. The biggest problem I have is the fact that I can't use external monitors anymore, as the computer will completely freeze after about 20-30 minutes and I have force reboot the laptop.

    All applications work fine though, it's just the OS itself which is buggy for me.
