The iPhone literally has it all – phone, Internet access, games, music, and a built-in digital camera. And it can arguably be a toy as well with all the games and apps. Who cares if you have to wait in line at the post office? If you want to maximize the use of your iPhone, here are some neat tips that could help you take full advantage of its capacity.
Get more in less space. You can read more of an email or a Web page by setting your font size to the smallest. This makes checking email a faster process. But that shouldn’t stop you from increasing the font size if you have difficulty seeing the text. What’s great is that you can adjust the font to your personal preferences.
Add to spell check. Your iPhone would occasionally mark words that may possibly be misspelled. There are times when said error would actually be a word not in the phone’s dictionary. Once this happens, click three times to reject the correction and you’ll have a new word added to the iPhone dictionary.
Speed up scrolling. The touch-sensitive screen makes scrolling really easy. Let us say you want to go back to the top of a Web page you’re reading. Instead of scrolling, just tap once at the top of the iPhone screen. With just one tap, you have gotten back to the start of the Web page and you can read it all over again as much as you want.
Use the magnifying glass. This can be done with the iPhone’s magnifying glass if you wish to highlight certain words and make them larger. The magnifying glass can be brought up and adjusted by simply tapping and holding. If you’re editing something, this allows you better focus with the iPhone screen.
Bring on the videos. Provided they are of the right format, you can watch videos any time you want on your iPhone. Apple is in copacetic terms with YouTube, so you can watch many videos here on your iPhone.
As long as the YouTube videos use H264 encoding, they should work perfectly fine. You can watch other videos with different formats, provided that the format is successfully converted for your iPhone.
Customize your theme. The last thing you want is to have the same theme as a good friend or family member of yours after spending so much for that iPhone. It’s easy to customize your iPhone’s theme, thanks to free download sites. Download the “Hack Toolkit” to get into the iPhone and change themes. Several Internet sites offer these themes.
Don’t let spam ruin your day. You can easily get rid of spam by adding Yahoo! mail to your bookmarks and using its “delete all” function. With this you don’t have to go through every spam email and delete them individually.
There are also forums dedicated to iPhone users, where they share best practices and their own tips to maximize the use of their pricey new toy. You can indeed save a lot of time and enjoy a cell phone on so many more levels with the iPhone.
