Technology Meets Conservation
Can iPhones Help Save Our Wildlife?
There’s a feature in Settings that allows for Events Found in Mail to automatically be added to your Calendar app. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and toggle Events Found in Mail on, if it’s not already. Now when you receive an email with an event in it, a notification will appear at the top of the email. Tap Add to create the event in your Calendar app. Tap Add again to save the event.
Search All Your Notes Folders at Once
Search in the Notes app is limited, since you can only search within one folder at a time. Fortunately, you can use Spotlight to search all your notes at once. Go to Settings > General > Spotlight Search and enable Notes. The next time you want to search Notes, swipe down from the center of your Home screen to open Spotlight and then type your search term. The note should appear in the search results. Tap the note to open it.
Make Reminders Extra Helpful
Setting reminders based on time or location makes them even more useful. After you enter a reminder, tap the info icon to set specifics. To set a day and time for your reminder, turn on "Remind me on a day" then tap on Alarm. To set a location-based reminder, turn on "Remind me at a location" and then either tap on your current location or type in a location. Then choose to be reminded when you arrive at or you leave that location.
Boomerang from Instagram (Free)
Share fun tidbits from your day with Boomerang, an intuitive app that essentially transforms a one-second video (which is then looped back and replayed for a total of four seconds) into a GIF that you can then upload and edit within Instagram. Use the front-facing camera to capture an animated selfie or, better yet, document a busy street scene or someone doing cartwheels. Within seconds, Boomerang captures a lightning round of 10 shots that form a mini video.
We’ve all made a mistake or two when packing for a trip, no matter the length of time or distance. Unfortunately, sometimes those forgotten items can make or break a vacation. That’s where PackPoint comes in. Simply input a destination, a length of time, and whether the trip is business or pleasure. The app will create a list of common items, as well as necessities to pack based on your input.
