Thing 2: Mobile Device Tips

My 5 favorite iOS tips/tricks.

1. Add to Homescreen
In safari, you can create a quick link to any website. It will appear as an app icon on your homescreen.

2. Emoji 
To enable emoji, simply go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard, then choose Emoji.

Now when you type, tap the globe icon to reveal the Emoji keyboard. Fun times.

3. Use Airdrop to quickly transfer photos between iOS devices.
Sometimes I want a picture from my phone on my iPad or vice versa. The easiest and fastest way to do it is with Airdrop. 

4. Symbols and Caps Lock.
Hold down keys on the keyboard to reveal special characters like á ö ñ ¡ £ ° etc.

Double tap the up arrow to TYPE IN ALL CAPS.

5. Undo Text
Want to erase what you just typed? Give your device a good shake and choose Undo.

Thing 1: Blogging

I heard so many good comments about 23 Things On A Stick that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do 23 Mobile Things. Not sure what to expect since I never did the first one, but I am always up for learning something new.  Really glad I will have the chance to discuss with my creative and knowledgeable LMS friends who are doing this at the same time. Added bonus: I get to call myself a "Panera Princess."
