Siri Trouble

dillo99 says:
RTM recently announced new Siri support. Unfortunately, I think this replaced the fact to Apple removed the option to make another reminder tool (like RTM) the default for reminders???? (IOS11). I used to have it set up that way. I could tell siri to remind me of something and it hit my inbox in RTM. That option appears to have gone away and I assume that is why RTM recently announced new SIRI commands and support. Just one problem - they don't seem to work. I tried all morning to add a task and it just kept going to the default apple app. I used the exact phrasing recommended by RTM - things like...“Add call Bob to my task list in RTM”. Anyone else having this problem?

Siri doesn't work *AT ALL*. Not a little bit, not at all. RTM should take this off the site until the functionality works. Seriously! Did anyone test Siri before putting this announcement on the website?

ios 11. I had to go to settings/reminders and set default task to "list" to force it to use RTM. It seems to work to add a task but pretty fussy about the specific syntax of your request and sometimes works and sometimes doesnt.
Using the samples RTM provides:
"Add call Bob to my task list in RTM" - works adds to inbox
"add eggs to my grocery list in RTM" - works adds to grocery
"Mark call Bob as complete on RTM" - thinks I want to call Bob
"Start a list called "yard" on RTM" - Tells me I dont have any "yard" reminders
"What do I have due today in RTM?" (thinks I said "do" rather than "due"). If i edit in siri "do" to "due" it works -

I can't get Siri and RTM to work on latest iOS, message "there was a problem with the app" (RTM). Can you help should this work?

Yea, this integration so so damn sub-par. It's not even close to usable. The legacy caldav siri integration was SO MUCH BETTER. Can we roll back?
