iPhone Tips and Tricks

by William Bonin 

Are you smarter than your Smartphone? These tips and tricks will help you get the most out of your iPhone.

 Camera Tips:

Is your subject too close or too far away? No more walking closer or backing up to try and capture the magic moment. When shooting video or photos, a tap on the screen will bring up a slider that you can use to zoom in or out and bring your picture into focus.

Are your pictures looking a little shaky? The iPhone doesn’t have an anti-shake feature but if you hold the shutter button down and get yourself steady, when you release the button you should have a pretty good shot.

If there’s something on your screen you want to save, do you need another camera? Not at all — just have your iPhone take a screenshot. Press and hold the Home button and then press the Sleep/Wake button. After your screen flashes, your screenshot will appear in your Camera Roll.

Ninjump

Price: FREE; Backflip Studios

Rating: 5 out 5 stars

Just remember to stay away from the black and blue ninja throwing stars or the black ninja running down the sides of the building. I highly recommend this one.
