There's an easier way to embed a link into an e-mail message, but it only works with a link to an entire Web page. Open Safari and browse to the desired page. Then tap on the action icon (the small box with an arrow coming out of it, located to the left of the address bar). When the pop-up menu appears, select Mail Link to this Page.

Eliminate typing mistakes

When you first started using the keyboard on your iOS device, you probably noticed that you made a lot of mistakes and had trouble typing fast. To reduce mistypes, Apple designed the keyboard so that the character is entered only after you lift your finger off the key. That way, if you happen to press down on the wrong key, you can simply drag your finger to the correct one and lift up. In addition, you can speed up your typing by making the keyboard larger. Simply rotate your device to landscape view; the keyboard expands to fill the bottom of the screen and the keys are larger and easier to tap accurately.

Turn you device on its side to get a wider keyboard that's easier to type on.
