iPhone Tips and Tricks part 2: Get Even More Out of Your iPhone Experience

If you own an iPhone, you know they are a ton of fun! This article is part two in a series of articles that offers simple tips and tricks to have a great iPhone experience! (Find the link to my other iphone tips at the bottom of this article.)

iPhone Phone and E-Mail Tips

  • To stop an incoming call from ringing, press the sleep/wake button. To send the call immediately to voice mail, press the sleep/wake button twice.

  • An easy way to delete email is by just swiping left to right on the email in the list and press the delete button that pops up on the right side.

    Caller ID Tips

  • If you select a photo for a contact from the iPhone, the selected photo is shown full screen for the caller ID. Neat!

  • If a contacts photo is transferred with the contact's info from the address book, the contact's photo is shown as a thumbnail for the caller ID.

    Keystroke and Typing Tips

  • There is a simple way to go from the alpha to the non-alpha keyboard in one quick swipe. All you have to do is hold down the punctuation key and slide to the character you want to use and then release.

  • To use the CAPS LOCK feature, enable it in 'general settings.' To use it, double-tap on the shift key and the shift key will turn blue.

    Google Maps Tips

  • Traveling somewhere and want to check out the surrounding area? Just type in the the 3 letter airport code while in maps and you will be taken to that airport on the map. So if you wanted to check out the Santa Monica pier on your trip to Los Angeles, type in 'LAX' (without quotes) while in maps and you will be taken to the Los Angeles International Airport. A quick zoom out will reveal Santa Monica and many other surrounding areas. This works with all major airports in the United States and many overseas airports as well.

    Web Browsing with Safari

  • If you are at the bottom of a long web page and want to get back to the URL bar to go to another site, there is an easier way than scrolling all the way back to the top. Wherever you are on the page, tap the top of the screen where the time and battery life indicator are. You will be immediately taken to the URL entry field.

  • To email a page to someone, tap on the address bar. The Share button on the top left will create a message for you. Neat!

  • Simple 'page down.' Make sure you are not zoomed-in. Now double-tap towards the bottom of the screen and the page will re-center around your tap. Make sure not to tap a link!

  • Zoom onto a specific picture. Double-tapping images in Safari zooms them to fit your iPhone display. If the picture is linked to a URL, you may not want to do this as you will be taken to the page linked from the image. Double-tap again to return to the unzoomed display.

  • Zoom onto a text column. This works in a similar fashion as pictures. Double-tap on the column to fit it to the display. Double-tap again to return out of the zoom. Not only does Safari zoom block-quoted text independently of regular text but if you move your finger after the first double-tap-to-fit, it interprets the next double-tap as a re-center page command rather than a return-to-previous-zoom. Very handy.

    Well that is it for this second edition of iPhone tips and tricks. You can view the first set of iphone tips and tricks.
