Wink The iPhone tips & tricks thread****

I thought a thread on how to get the most out of your iPhone and it's bimbo sidekick Siri would be a good idea.

So post up your neat iPhone/Siri tips and tricks!

I'll start off with this nice little fix for people sick Siri mispronouncing people's names:
Quote:
I'll kick things off with this nice tip: If Siri is driving you nuts because it constantly mis pronounces your friends & contacts' names you can do this: edit the contact, tap the "add field" option, then tap the "add phonetic first name" or "add phonetic last name" option. Then you can add a name that is phonetically spelled "man-chez" for Manches.

Let's try this again. Non tip related posts deleted. Let's try to let this thread stay on-topic regarding iPhone (4, 4S, 5, whatever) tips & tricks.

Ok not sure why my tip was deleted but I'll post it again...

If you type something and want to delete it without pressing the delete button repeatedly or holding it down, you can simply shake the phone and it will ask if you want to delete what you typed.

It was deleted on account of "oops, my bad." Thanks for reposting.

Things with siri:

"Siri create note food list"

"add milk to food list"

continue on to add to list.

Siri will do calculations as well. I asked how many dollars is 54 million pennies and got the answer back.. was surprised.

I wonder if there's a way to save a location, so that when you park your car you can find your way back like those find-my-car apps do?

Here is a couple of tips:

1.) download appshopper.

Appshopper will let you know which apps are temporarily on sale or temporarily free, new, updated, etc... You can even set it to watch certain apps and it will let you know when they go on sale. You wont believe how often apps go on sale, and how many apps you can get for free if you are patient.

2.) The other tip is freemyapps.com
you go there, and you earn points for downloading and playing free games for 30 seconds after which you can delete them. with the points you earn you can spend them on paid for games, itunes gift cards, amazon credit,xbox live credit etc.. The site is legit, the WSJ even did an article on it.
