VoiceUtils app lets Siri commands open apps, unlock and reboot your iPhone 4S

Still on the jailbreaking fence? This nifty little app might persuade to set your iPhone 4S free

If you need an excuse to join one of the millions of iPhone 4S jailbreakers then the VoiceUtils app might be the ideal temptress.

The app (available for free from the Cydia store) allows Siri to obey various commands, letting you open apps, start the camera, unlock your iPhone 4S and reboot – all with the power of your voice.

Granted it would be much quicker to unlock your screen with a finger swipe, but the concept opens up many possibilities when used with hands-free headsets as you’ll be able to navigate your beloved iDevice by barely lifting a finger.

Check out the video below for the lowdown before diving into some Siri commands of your very own.
