iOS 4 Playlist Create, Photo Resize and Bing [iOS 4 Tour Pt. 6]
Here’s a few more tasty treats for all you newly upgraded iOS 4 users. Playlists can now be created on your mobile device and synced back to your computer. If you’re like me and likely spend more time with your iPhone than you do at a computer then this feature may be of use to you. Creating playlists on your iPhone (or iPod) is pretty easy. Simply touch the playlist button while in iPod function and the touch add playlist. Give your playlist a name then you will be able to add songs to it. Adding songs is done by selecting on individual songs or by changing the view to artists and adding groups of songs. Very easy, very handy.
Emailing photos has been something we’ve all done from our iPhones and now the email app will ask to resize your photo before it sends it. So, to see this one in action, or to resize your pic for emailing it, simply go through the normal steps of emailing a photo. That is, go to the photos app, select a photo, touch the arrow then select email photo. Now that you’re in the email app add your recipient address, enter some text it you’d like and the touch send. At this point you will get a prompt to resize your photo (took us a few tries to figure out where this was too). Something else we noticed is that if you ignore the resize prompt and close out of email or lock your phone that the photo will still be sent. Kinda cool.
Lastly, for this post at least, we have a new search option for safari: Bing. To enable Bing and all that it brings go to settings then to safari then search engine and select Bing. I’m not really sure if there is any advantage to using Bing over Google but it’s there nonetheless for those that want to try it.
