It sound like a joke. Danish, Finnish, Norwegian. Why not Polish and Russian? If you count all Danish, Finns, Swedes and Norwegians, you will have them as much as or less than Poles.How can you count on boosting markets if you ignore them? Releasing products without major functions causes consumers to turn back and look for alternatives.
Dear Apple, there IS a world outside of old EU, US or China. And this world is full of potential customers. Do not ignore them!


Probably more Apple customers in Scandinavia than in either Russia or Poland.

Making Siri understand English first would be great; Google's Voice Search works much better.

make it work in English.


I was wondering how long it would take for this to be posted. And while I think Siri does not work very well, you do know it is possible for Apple to work on fixing it in English while also expanding the language it supports at the same time, right?
