Five Things iPhone Apps Do That You Didn't Know - Lewis Robinson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Five Things iPhone Apps Do That You Didn't Know

The additional technology that each generation of cellular phones puts out is amazing. However, they also have certain capabilities that most users are unaware of. These abilities go far beyond texting, phone calls, or social media and can affect everyday life outside the electronic world. Here are a few on your iPhone that you might find useful.

 

Home Improvement

If you are unable to find your level, your iPhone can do the job by utilizing the built in gyroscope that is included in the device. Open up the Compass app with a simple tap then select Measure. When it is open, choose Level. Set it on its back or on the side in either portrait or landscape. The bubble on the screen will indicate if the surface is level or if you need to work on it. You can use this to hang picture frames or to ensure that your project is built properly.

Swap Files

Most Apple owners know that they can exchange files with other iPhone users with AirDrop. However, by using iCloud, you can swap files with anyone on the internet and put them on your phone. There are apps that allow for torrenting on iPhone. However, before you do, make sure that you have the proper security before you download your information just like you would with your computer. Doing this will protect your device from malware that can break it.

 

Conceal Images

While you are proud of the pictures in your Photo app, there may be a few that you would like to keep to yourself. Tap on Select in the right hand corner then choose the images you wish to conceal. Hit the box in the bottom left corner that shares your files with others. If you scroll through the menu provided, you will find the Hide option. When you press it, the pictures that you have selected will disappear from those in the Photo app. However, when you want to look at them again, they will be in the Hidden album in the same program.

 

Custom Alerts

Your iPhone has multiple options to alert you when a specific person calls. You have the option to save a special song or tone to a contact to indicate that it is them. You can also set a particular vibration to them if your phone is on silent. Both of these settings are found under your Contacts app. When you select a contact from the list, tap on their ringtone option. Here you should see both vibration and ringtone. You can choose from the suggested lists that they have or install your own customized version that fits the person who is reaching out to you.

 

Eliminate Large Amounts Of Text

It can be frustrating when you type a large paragraph or two on your phone either in a document, email, or text and have to get rid of it. Pressing the delete button down until it is gone takes time that you can spend elsewhere. If you need to eliminate text quickly, shake your iPhone. A message will pop up asking if you wish to delete what you have written. When you select yes, it will wipe off the letters from your screen. You need to be cautious, however, since it will also offer that option if you rattle your device accidentally. If you want to shut this off, you can go into your Settings app. Tap on General and then Accessibility. In that menu you will find the Shake to Undo feature. You can disable it here. The many applications that you find on your iPhone can make your daily life easier as well as entertain you when you have downtime. Knowing the hidden features that some of these programs have can be an added benefit to your everyday routine outside the digital world from hanging pictures on your wall to making editing easy for you.
