Contacts Browsing Tips

image

The “Contacts” feature of the iPhone may be one of the most useful Apps there is. The ability to always have current information on the people and events you interact with daily is “priceless.”

Here are several tips that can make your “Contacts” experience easier and more useful.

First, if you have as many entries as I do then you have probably “lost” one somewhere along the line.

For some time after getting my iPhone I was frustrated that there was not a SEARCH or FIND function to help me locate lost entries.

How the iPhone saved me $10 at Walmart using screen capture

image
I was not going to blog about this, but recently I saw a post on how Walmart now has an iPhone version of their site.  I have a friend visiting from the UK, and instead of renting a bike for a few days, I did some research and found it cheaper to buy a new one. After a bit of searching, I found a mountain bike for $60 at Walmart on sale. We headed off to the store and it was listed as $69 in the store.


Home Screen Page Turn Alternative

You probably move from Home Screen to Home Screen by scrolling left/right flicking your finger to throw the pages.

There is an alternative approach, which is sometimes more convenient.

The iPhone allows you to create up to nine (9) Home Screens. The small white dots above the Dock Bar shows the number of screens you have, and indicates which Screen you are currently viewing. The image below indicates we are on Screen #2 (yellow arrow points to dot number 2 of 6).



Home Screen Icon Control

By default, the iPhone arranges icons on the various Home Screens in a tight configuration that pushes everything up and to the left, leaving all blank spaces at the bottom of the screen.



Apple's iPhone Simulator almost as good as the real thing

image

I'm writing this post on an iPhone... not a real phone, but a simulated one that appears on my MacBook screen. it's about 50% larger than actual size, and it's very shiny and realistic looking. But most importantly, it looks and acts just like a real iPhone when it runs Safari.



Customizing the menu Bar

image

The iPhone's Menu Bar at the bottom of the screen provides a means to access the most common applications across all Home Screens. While Apple's default choice of Phone/Mail/Safari/iPod may may be just fine for you, if you've ever wanted a different layout, you can have it as the four (default) icons can be readily changed to meet your needs.
