Re: iPhone Secrets Keyboard Shortcuts

Using this new typing tip, you can add a period or other punctuation starting from and returning to the ABC keyboard using only one finger stroke. According to the manual,

So here?s what you can do, all in one motion:

1. Touch the ?.123″ key, but don?t lift your finger as the punctuation layout appears.
2. Slide your finger a half inch onto the period or comma key, and release.

Incredibly, the ABC layout returns automatically. You?ve typed a period or a comma with one finger touch instead of three. In fact, you can type ANY of the punctuation symbols the same way.

Similar approach can be used for capitalizing letters when typing. Traditionally, every time one wants to capitalize a letter, two keystrokes are required: one to enable/highlight the shift key on the keyboard (the up arrow icon), and a second to select the letter. Using the shortcut, this can be accomplished in one stroke

1. Quickly get to the first Home screen

Say, like me, you?ve gone a bit wild on the App Store and currently have a large number of apps installed. I have 101 apps, which means 7 Home screens to flick through. Your most important apps are on the first screen, right? Say you?re currently on screen 7, and want to get to the first screen. Simply click the Home button to jump there. Nice!
2. Flip between pages by tapping

Many iPhone apps feature a paging system with dots at the bottom of the screen, such as:

* The Home screen
* Safari
* Weather

You probably know that you can flip between pages in these apps by swiping left or right across the screen. As an alternative, you can also tap the areas either side of the row of dots at the bottom of the screen:

Instantly access iPod controls from anywhere

You?re working on an email and listening to a podcast when your landline rings. You want to pause the podcast quickly. If you?re using headphones with a pause button then no problem. (If your headphones don?t have a pause button then you can simply pull the headphone jack out to pause, though it?s not a particularly elegant approach!)

Handily, there?s another quick way to pause the track. Just double-click the Home button, and a window pops up with iPod controls, allowing you to pause/play, as well as skip tracks and adjust the iPod volume:

You can also tap the iPod button in the window to go straight to the iPod.

By default, this trick only works if an iPod track is playing. However, you can change the behavior of the Home button double-click action by going to Settings > General > Home Button

Choosing Home means that double-clicking has the same effect as single-clicking: it merely takes you to your Home screen. Phone Favorites - the default setting - brings up your favorite contacts for quick dialing. However, if you choose iPod then double-clicking takes you straight to the iPod app, regardless of whether a track is playing.

You can also use the iPod Controls setting to turn off the feature that displays iPod controls when a track is playing.

Keyboard trick #1: Quickly type a period and space

When you finish typing a sentence, you usually want to type a period, followed by a space. This is a bit awkward as you have to tap the bottom-left Number key, followed by a period, followed by the space bar. There?s a much quicker way: just double-tap the space bar.

(If this doesn?t seem to work, go to Settings > General > Keyboard and turn the ?.? Shortcut option on.)
5. Keyboard trick #2: Quickly type a single number or symbol

The usual way to enter digits or symbols is to tap the Number key, then tap the digits or symbols, then tap the Number key (which now shows ABC) again to return to the regular keyboard.

However, if you only want to type a single digit or symbol then there?s a quicker way. Tap and hold the Number key to bring up the number/symbol keyboard, then drag your finger to the digit or symbol you want to type, and let go. This types the digit or symbol and immediately returns you to ABC mode.

Re: iPhone Secrets Keyboard Shortcuts

Hold down keys for more options

Many keys bring up a list of other symbols or options if you tap and hold them for 1 second. For example:

* Hold down E, Y, U, I, O, A, S, L, Z, C, or N to bring up accented letters
* Hold down $ in the number/symbol keyboard to display other currency symbols
* Hold down ? or ? in the number/symbol keyboard to access alternative quote characters
* Hold down ? or ! in the number/symbol keyboard to bring up the ? or ? symbol
* Hold down the .com key when entering Web addresses to bring up options for .net, .edu and .org. (You can also do this trick when entering email addresses in Mail by tapping and holding the . (period) key.)
