Tips: Paste Your Phone Number into DialPad

9 10 2009

You may have upgraded your iPhone to iPhone OS 3.1. There is one minor feature you may not know but you’ll definitely find it useful. It’s not an revolutionary feature but very handy:

Copy and paste phone number into the Dialpad

iPhone comes with a built-in capability to detect number as phone number, so you can tap and make the call directly. However, not all number are detected correctly as phone number. Before iPhone OS 3.1, when you come across such phone number in note, web page or documents, you need to memorize the phone number and key it in the dialpad. With the upgrade to 3.1, you can simply copy the phone number and paste it into the dialpad to make your call.

Copy & paste a phone number is the same as you copy any other text on iPhone. Simply tap on the phone number and hold for a second. iPhone will pop up a context menu for you to select and copy the phone number. With the text copied, go to Phone application and paste back the phone number to make your call.

Microsoft Releases Bing.com-For iPhone?

9 06 2009

bingiconMicrosoft releases its new search engine called Bing.com that intends to replace the Live.com search and challenges the leading position of Google. Bing.com is now live and you can try it out yourself. But one tip to use the full-featured Bing is that you’ll need to set the country to United States. Otherwise, you may only see a stripped-down version of Bing.com.

Microsoft’s new search engine is pretty good. The interface is simple with an awesome image as the background, which will change daily. The search is very fast and the search results are much better that in Live.com. I especially found the image search useful. The image search results can be filtered by size, layout, color, style (photograph / illustration) and people.

So, will I switch from Google to Bing.com? For now, the answer is no. The index size of Bing is relatively smaller than that of Google. I still feel more satisfied for the search result returned by Google, just based on a few test searches. And, of course, I already get used to Google’s simple interface.

And, one thing you and I may concern is whether Bing.com works on iPhone. I launched mobile Safari on iPhone and type in http://www.bing.com. Bing! It directs me to Live Search. Obviously, bing.com is still not iPhone (or even mobile) ready. Anyway, it’s good to see an early start of Bing and you can head to bing.com to test it out.

How to Passcode Lock Your iPhone

9 06 2009

We all worry about misplacing our precious phones or, worse yet, having them stolen. Some may even worry about snoopers trying to read our private info when we’re not looking. In case one of these things happen, you should really consider protecting all of your personal data on the device.

From the homescreen, tap the Settings icon. From there you will want to press the General tab.

1-266x400

Once you are within the general settings tab you will see Passcode Lock is set to off.

2-266x400

Now tap Passcode Lock and you will be prompted to enter a four digit passcode.

3-266x400

After entering your four digit code you will now see the following options.

  • Require Passcode: allows you to select a time period that has to pass before the lock is enabled. If you don’t want to have to enter your code too frequently but still want some protection, you can set this to 15 minutes or even 1 hour or more.
  • Show SMS Preview: on by default, this shows incoming text messages on your homescreen. Turning this feature to off will only display “New Text Message” on the home screen, which can keep the identity of your texter safe from snooping eyes if that’s a concern.
  • Erase Data: simply erases all data on your iPhone after 10 failed passcode attempts. This is the nuclear option, but if you’re really worried about losing your iPhone and have really important data on it, it can be something to consider.

Once you have configured your settings as you see fit, tap your home button to exit and that’s all there is to it. You have successfully passcode locked your iPhone. It’s as simple as that.





Amazon Kindle Store Are Optimizes For iPhone

24 05 2009

kindle_for_iphoneiconAmazon released a Kindle application for iPhone that lets you purchase Kindle-based book and read it on iPhone. If you have read my review on Amazon’s Kindle app, you probably know at that time, the Kindle store is not designed for iPhone. The Kindle app itself is great but the Kindle store is not easily to navigate and definitely drags customers away from purchasing books.

Just take a look at the old Kindle store, will you zoom in and out to shop around? Definitely not.

Now, Amazon achieves a great milestone for Kindle store, which is now optimized for iPhone Safari. As you launch the Kindle app and tap “Get Books” button, the app will take you to the iPhone-optimized Kindle store. The user experience is much better than the old one. It’s just simpler, less clutter and easier to navigate.

The home screen of Kindle store is pretty simple with just a search box and a few options that let you browse books by categories or look for top sellers. However, you may feel a bit strange when you perform a book search. Instead of displaying the search result inside the app, Kindle app shows the book result in iPhone’s Safari. After that, you can continue to navigate the store in Safari and buy books by using Amazon’s 1-click purchase.

Once the you purchase a book or download a sample chapter, the book is automatically downloaded right into your iPhone. And, you can immediately start reading it using the Kindle app. The iPhone-optimized Kindle store is a great improvement and definitely can attract more iPhone users to purchase Kindle books. But, it’s still not perfect. What I expect is a seamless experience that I can purchase books right inside in the Kindle app. Probably in a very near future, Amazon will take my request into account and rolls out a perfect Kindle app.
