IPhone Tricks and Tips

How did we live before IPhones?!?  I have run across a few lists online of IPhone tips and tricks, here are my favs....

1.  Tap the Status Bar (beside the battery icon) to scroll to the top of what you are reading.

2.  Press the Round Home Button and the Top Button at the same time for a screen shot, I use this one all the time!

3. If your phone dies all of a sudden, hold down the round Home button and top button at the same time for 10 seconds to reset.

4. Double click the home button to show open apps, hold your finger on an app for 2 seconds to make them wiggle, then you can close an app to make your phone run faster or restart an app.

5.  When you are typing, you can double tap space for a period and space.

6. Did you know you don't need the www or .com when browsing?  just type in cnn or tennessean in your browser and it will take you to the page.

7.   You can add sites to your home screen for quick reference.  Once you have it open in Safari, click the arrow at the bottom of the screen, then click add to home screen.   See my blog listed as an icon?

8. If you are listening to music, you can double press the home button for music controls to appear, even when your phone is asleep. 

9. Has this ever happened to you?

Yeah, that's a bad day.  Good news, you can most likely fix it yourself (if the actual phone still works).  Both JK and I have both shattered the unbreakable IPhone glass and both of our phones have been fixed. JK even fixed his himself!  The kit for the LCD screen is here iphone 4 cdma digitizer. I will warn you, it's a very tedious process, but it is possible to DIY!

What's your favorite IPhone Trick?
