iPhone Tricks that Will Make Your Life Easier

iPhones do a lot more than make calls! We can easily 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

It can be frustrating to use the tiny on-screen keyboard for typing emails or Web addresses. If this is true for you, try turning your phone horizontally before clicking in the area you want to type in. This will provide you with a larger on-screen keyboard making it simpler to type a “t”  and not a “y.”
Here is a tip for making phone calls: If you are browsing the Web for a phone number you have 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 with the on-screen keyboard, try tapping the space bar twice at the conclusion of a sentence. Your iPhone will automatically add a period and then capitalize the next word you type. If you want to spice up your message with special characters, just touch and hold a letter for a couple of seconds. As you do this, a selection of special characters will appear. 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, as well as 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.”

For you music lovers out there, you may create a music playlist on the go. Access the iPod app, tap the “Playlists” icon select the “Add Playlist” icon. Rename your playlist and add any video or song on your phone just by touching it.
