Siri caused a tonne of buzz when it was announced as the headline feature for the 4S last October, but it's been a few months since and I'm curious to know how many of our readers regularly use the personal voice assistant. And to what effect.

I've just put up a poll on the homepage asking how often 4S user access the app. Cast your vote and leave a comment below sharing your experiences with Siri. Is the service genuinely useful? Or, as some suggest, half-baked?

I don't have a 4S so can't answer the question directly, though judging from conversations with friends who do have access to the app few use it, often becoming frustrated with its inadequacies.

What do you think?

Love it !!!

It's probably saved me $1000s in fines, I am in the car 5 to 6 hours per day, and I use it to send email, text messages and to make upwards of 10 to 20 calls per day. For anybody who hasn't been picked up lately in the lovely state of Victoria, if you get caught, touching your phone, to make a call or even check the time, it's an instant $244 fine.

So like I said above I love Siri, it saves me lots and lots of $$$$

I hardly ever have enough reception to use Siri.

When I do use it to send text messages it's just not accurate enough at taking dictation. It's pretty good, but there's usually a word or two that's messed up enough to render my message incoherent. I am verbose and pedantic, so perhaps not an ideal Siri user.
You might not know it to look at me, but I'm pretty radical.
