In order to take advantage of the iPhone's ability to make your life easier, be sure to investigate applications that utilize GPS technology to provide you with the locations of nearby gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants. Doing so will help you save time on all of your errands no matter where you happen to be.

 

Find your phone fast with the brand new, free app called Find My iPhone. It lets you remotely access your phone to provide you with coordinates on a map, turn the volume up so the phone can be heard from under thick cushions, or lock the phone and wipe all data in case of theft.

 

Use your iPhone as a workout tool. With an armband and one of the many great fitness apps available, you can use your iPhone's GPS to track your runs, bike routes, walking paths and more. Many of these applications automatically sync your workout information with a website, allowing you to easily track your progress. They can also sync with your favorite social networks.

 

If you accidentally drop your iPhone into water, do not proceed to turn it on! This can cause permanent damage to your phone because it will be short-circuited. Instead, you should use a towel to lightly dry it. Never use a hairdryer because this can push the moisture into the dry areas. Keep your phone in a bag or bowl of uncooked white rice overnight. If you do this, you have a better chance of reviving your phone.

 

If you use your iPhone as a listening device for your favorite mp3s, use this trick. To randomly shuffle to another song, simply shake the phone gently with a flick of your wrist. This is perfect for those who prefer to listen but don't want to stop and take the time to select another song.

 

If you need to get back up to the top of a page, there is no need to use the scroll bar to slowly make your way up a long web page or email. Simply tap the bar at the top with the clock and you will be right back where you started. This is a simple shortcut that can save you time.

 

Use your iphone to store files. If you need files on hand but don't want to lug around a flash drive or your laptop, just store the files on your phone. By sending files over via wifi or usb, you can keep them stored on your phone. You can even purchase extra space to store them, should the need arise.

 

Aren't you impressed with everything the iPhone can do? Having an iPhone is something that can be a lot of fun and really help you live your life more easily. There are so many things you can do that it is really an indispensable machine. Use the tips in this article to help you master this great tool.
