Out of the box Siri can do a few common things, but it struggles when you try to get too complicated with it. GigaOM offers up a few clever address book customisations to make Siri work more naturally.

We’ve previously covered the basics of talking to Siri, but GigaOM takes it a step further by walking you through the steps to setting up your workplace, family members and pronunciation. For instance, if you enter in your work address, you can make better use of the Reminders app and get more out of Maps. For those of us who haven’t done a lot of data entry into the address book, this is simple way to make Siri work in a more natural way. The bottom line is that the more Siri knows about you, the better it can do its job. Check out the full set of tips over on GigaOM.
