However, a large number of users only take the time to learn the basics of Apple devices and end up missing out on a variety of other features and functionalities their phones can perform. Here is a list of incredible things you can do with your smartphone from the reputable brand.

Read emails aloud

It is an amazing way of using your phone since you don’t have to read yourself. You can have them read out to you as you engage in other activities. Siri will do you the honors by simply giving the order. She can even read most recent emails only. She follows the orders as you dictate.

Know your flights

It’s definitely a function a traveling buff will find exciting. The device will let you in on the flights that are flying where you are. By asking for information on the flights that are flying overhead, you get a list of all flights at that given moment.

Undo by simple shake

Typing errors or picture editing can occur when least expected. However, making corrections is made easy for you by your device. A little shake is all you need to give your phone and you will be directed to the undo action. Corrections cannot get any easier than this.

Recharge faster by switching modes

The airplane mode turns off the battery draining cellular and wireless access, hence making it possible for it to recharge in half the time a normal recharge takes. This is quite helpful when you are in a hurry and need to take your device fully charged but you are limited on time.

Use a timer to automatically turn off music

Leaving the music playing for long will without doubt drain your battery. If you however love sleeping with your favorite songs playing, you can still do so without running the phone low on power. This is because you can simply set the timer to switch off music in a given time frame. The timer app gives you the option of doing several things when it runs out and this includes stop playing. The setting will turn off tunes at the right time.

Use volume buttons to take snaps

The touch capture button can be hard to use when taking photos sometimes. This is especially in cases such as when wearing gloves. Fortunately, you have the option of pressing the volume buttons to solve your photo problem.

Use as a level

The other amazing way you can use your Apple is as level. It ensures that you get things right and in straight angles. You can apply this when hanging wall decorations of pictures for instance. By swiping left on the Compass app, your device makes the perfect level you need.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
