A quick and easy way to check out when a message was sent on your Apple iPhone is by holding your thumb down on the message and dragging the message bubble to the left – the time appears on the right.

How to quickly close all tabs in Safari on your iPhone

It’s easy to end with heaps of open windows from websites you have visited, so rather than going to each webpage and closing it using the time-honoured method of clicking the “x” in the top right corner of the page, try closing them all in one click!

1. Open Safari on your iPhone.
2. Hold your finger down on the Tabs icon (two squares bottom right and circled in the diagram).
3. When the prompt opens choose Close All Tabs (the number of  open tabs are listed) or choose Close this Tab if you are only closing the one you are viewing.
Otherwise (and I just discovered this..) if you are looking at your list of open windows just hold down your finger on the Done button (bottom right) and you will also close all open tabs!

Ah technology!! 😍.Safari close_LI

Another way to take a photo with the iPhone/iPad

When you use the camera app, you get a little shutter button at the bottom of the screen, press it and you’ve taken a photo….easy, right?But pressing the volume up (+) or down (-) buttons on the side of the phone/iPad does the same thing – and it’s easier to reach (especially when doing ‘selfies’!)

So, just call up the camera app, aim and press the vol buttons instead of the shutter icon.

Easy way to install and use Emotions on your iPhone

Emjoi is the Japanese term for picture characters or emoticons.  Up until the latest Apple software upgrade (iOS 5), these could only be used if the Emjoi app was purchased, however now you can get the Emjoi characters on your iPhone or iPad  by enabling the Emjoi keyboard and happily include them in text messages.

***Note the fact that there are multiple keyboards available means that if you type in a different language (say German or Czech for me), then you can also add in different language keyboards using these same notes – just select your language instead of choosing Emjoi).

To  activate your Emoji keyboard on your device (e.g. iPhone): Read the rest of this entry »

Gym Pact iPhone App: get paid when you go to the gym

Well now I have heard everything:  this iPhone app (which they say is available for use internationally), works like like this:You download it, register and commit to a certain number of days per week in at particular gym. You also committ to paying/being docked a certain sum if you do not meet that committment.  The money goes into a common pool and the members who meet their target of attending get paid.

I have not downloaded it,  so I can’t judge or endorse it, but you can check it out here:  http://www.gym-pact.com/.

And I would LOVE to hear any feedback from those who have actually tried it out.
