iPhone Tricks that Will Make Your Life Easier

iPhones do a lot more than make calls! We can stream movies and TV shows, update our social sites, and listen to music. They can even give us direction to places we want to go. It appears as though the one thing they can’t do is the dishes. There is a lot you realize your iPhone can do, but we wanted to share a few timesaving tricks you may have been unaware of.

Saving Time

If you find it problematical to type a Web address on the small on-screen keyboard, before clicking in the address bar on your browser, turn your iPhone to a horizontal position. The keyboard will now be larger, making it easier to type an “e” and not a “w”. This is a timesaving tip for making phone calls. When browsing the Web, if you locate phone number you need to call, simply tap the telephone number on the screen and your phone will dial it.

More Efficient Typing

Apple itself offers a number of tips for getting more out of your iPhone. If you're typing using the on-screen keyboard, try tapping the space bar twice at the end of a sentence. Your iPhone will instantly include a period and then capitalize the next word you type. If you need to spice up your message with special characters, just touch and hold a letter for several seconds. As you do this, a variety of special characters will show up. You can then easily insert these symbols into your message.

Quick Printing, Personalized Entertainment

If you own an AirPrint-enabled printer, you are able to print documents, emails, and even Web pages from your iPhone. To print an email message, tap the Reply icon and then select “Print” and your phone will send the message to your printer. For a Web page, touch the “Action” icon and select “Print.”

Your iPhone can play your music, but did you know you can make a individualized music playlist on the go? Open the iPod application, tap the “Playlists” icon and chose the “Add Playlist” option. After renaming your playlist, just navigate to the song you wish to add and select it.
