For some reason, Help-My-iPhone.com has started to get some visitors recently. Although I thought I would be able to write some content for iPhone here and more general stuff over on The Tech Potato, it’s not happening.
There are a number of draft articles which I have never finished but if I ever do, it will probably be on techpotato.ca.
With starting my new business, in the Vancouver, BC area, I have been too busy do much posting.
Help-My-Tech.ca, my in-home tech service business is focusing on not just servicing PCs and Macs, but also training and support of all of the tech people have in their lives, servicing Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Coquitlam and the Lower Mainland. Did you know that 80% of people surveyed consider accessing email from all of their devices to be critical yet 65% said they were not comfortable setting up cloud services. With today’s tech, you must set-up email as a cloud service if you want all of your devices to work together.
Please visit techpotato.ca, or follow me on Twitter @TechPotato. If you are in Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Mission, Langley, Surrey, Delta, Burnaby, New Westminister, Richmond or Vancouver then contact me and I cam come and help you directly!
One very powerful yet often overlooked feature of the iPhone is the spotlight search. Spotlight search is accessed by pressing the home button when on the home page or by going to the page to the left of the home page.
As soon as you start to type the results will begin to thin down. Once you see the app, contact, song, video, email, or appointment that you want, just tap it.
For apps this can be much faster than flipping throug pages of icons. The same applies to contacts.
In iOS4, spotlight search was expanded to add text messages (SMS and SMS) plus options to search the web and search Wikipedia. It also adds the most often chosen result at the top of the list, with the label “Top Hit”.
Help-My-iPhone.com is a site dedicated to iPhone users who want to get the most from their pocket miracle. It is amazing how many people do not realize the full potential of their iDevice.
This site is here to help.
Much of what is discussed on this site is targeted to the iPhone, but is also of use to iPod Touch and other Apple mobile devices such as the iPad.
The iPhone and iPod Touch are more than a phone and MP3 player… they are pocket computers, capable of replacing most of the functions of a laptop or netbook computer. Personally, I hardly ever pull my laptop from my trunk since I started using the iPhone.
