Tweaks to extend Siri’s functionality have been rolling in over the past few days, one of which was VoiceUtils, a tool that allows users to open apps on their iPhone 4S via voice commands (among other things). The latest to hit Cydia is Lingual, a hack that essentially transforms Siri into your personal translator. Created by CodeThemed, and based on the AssistantExtensions platform for Siri development, Lingual taps into Microsoft Bing’s Translate API and is able to translate from english to over 30+ languages through Siri. So you can ask “What’s Where’s the bus stop in Spanish” and Siri will display the translated text for you momentarily. It won’t actually say aloud the translation, but it’s still really neat nonetheless. Lingual is free to download and can be found by simply searching for it on Cydia. Check out the video demo of how it works after the gap.

At first it sounded like the perfect marriage – dungeon crawling and classic point and click adventuring. That alone was enough to entice me into trying Dungeon of the Damned, never mind the cool "old but new" graphics and nostalgic interface. Unfortunately execution isn't always as good as concept, and sadly what Dungeon Of The Damned has turned out to be for me so far is a boring traipse through a lifeless dungeon with no adventure game elements, little combat and frustrating puzzles. The lack of a map doesn't help anything either.

At times it seems developers just miss that creative spark in terms of writing, leaving us stuck with stories full of cardboard characters and clichés. But every once in a while a streak of genius may turn such a seemingly boring tale into something new and original. And depending on the viewpoint EPOCH falls neatly into the latter category. Or not.
