25 Tricks and Tips All iPhone Users Should Know
List Compiled & Written By Marc Saltzman Of Yahoo! Shopping
21. Create an “app” out of a website you visit often:
To add a website to your Home screen, just visit the webpage in Safari and at the top of the screen, tap the Go To icon and select “Add to Home Screen.”
22. Create a music playlist on the fly:
You no longer need a computer to create a playlist. In the Music app, tap Playlists, then select Add Playlist and give it a name (“Marc’s Workout Mix”). Now, tap any song (or video) to add it to the playlist. You can add individual songs, entire albums, or all songs by a particular artist.
23. Don’t waste your day deleting messages individually:
You can delete unwanted emails en masse rather than deleting one at a time. In your Inbox, simply click the Edit button and check off the emails you want to delete with your finger and then choose Delete.
24. Keep track of your texting limits:
If you don’t have the best texting plan and don’t want to unnecessarily pay to send more texts than you need, here’s a tip to turn on the character count in the Messages app. Enable this in the Settings>Message option to keep an eye on your word count. Usually, your one text becomes two after 160 characters.
25. Mirror your iPhone with your TV:
If you own an Apple TV, you can instantly and wirelessly share exactly what’s on your iPhone 4S or second- and third-generation iPad with your HDTV, connected to an Apple TV — such as games, apps or videos. Simply double-tap the Home button, swipe all the way to the right and select AirPlay Mirroring.
