iSmashphone did a list of 12 useful iPhone shortcuts.  I knew most of them, but 4 of them really stood out for me, in fact shocked me.  Here’s my 4:

  • Take a screen shot on your iPhone and save it to your camera roll.  Just hold the ‘home’ button and then tap the ‘power/lock’ button.  Don’t hold both down otherwise you’ll reset the phone.  You’ll see the screen flash and presto, you’ve got a screen shot. This is the one pictured above.
  • Download images in Safari.  Just touch and hold over the image.  The iPhone will prompt you if you want to save the image to your camera’s roll.
  • Bring up alternate letters with accents.  When in the keyboard, just hold down the key and a menu will pop  up with different letters of the same ilk.
  • Bring up different URL endings, such as .net, .edu.  This one is the same as the above, just hold down the .com and it’ll bring up a menu of alternates.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
