For those of you that used to have Blackberry’s way back in the day, you might recall one of the better features was the versatility of the LED flash indicator. Now, the iPhone has it too. Read on to learn how to set this up within seconds!

Spotlight Search is basically a “Google” for your iPhone. When you type in a search, Spotlight Search will scour your entire phone for whatever it is that you searched for. You can search for things like contacts, apps, music (including songs, albums, and artists), notes, events, podcasts, and more. This can be a real timesaver if you have a lot of music and want to quickly play a song or if you have downloaded a lot of apps and can’t seem to remember where the app is on your homescreen. All you have to do is start typing the name of the song or the app and Spotlight Search will bring it right to you!
This tutorial will teach you: (1) how to use Spotlight Search, and (2) how to customize your search results by excluding specific categories of items from the search results (like excluding music or contacts from your search results).
I don’t know about you but I take a LOT of pictures with my iPhone. They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and that is definitely the case for me.

Before, all your photos were basically tossed together into one huge photo album on your device unless you went through the pains of organizing them on your computer first. But if you’re like me, you never did. But this has changed!
Now you can create and manage photo albums all on your iPhone. I’ll show you how!
