There’s Got to be a Better Way: Smart Phone Tips


Help a Nerd Out! I heard the other day about a magnifying glass that is built into iPhones that I never knew about! What else am I missing??? [And share some Android tips, too!]

Howie J: For increased battery life:
– Turn off auto-brightness
– turn off location settings until you need it
– make sure to periodically open the active apps (double click home on iPhone or the one on the left of home on Galaxy) and close them all out
– and if you really want to increase battery life and productivity – GASP, log out of Facebook, Twitter, other social media and disable email notifications. (ok, so that one may not work for all you techies, but as a last resort!)

Bonnie B: Check out what us available in Accessibility. While designed primarily for special needs people every one can benefit from them!

Carol T: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen for easy access to airplane, mode, wifi, Bluetooth, screen brightness, camera and much more on iPhone and iPad.

JuliAnn G: From the iPhone’s camera app, use one of the volume buttons to click the photo instead of the button on your screen.

Susan B: 3D Touch on the iPhone keyboard to enter trackpad mode and move the cursor around.
