What’s with iOS7? | Video Walkthrough

iOS7 Update

iOS7 Update

Apple just recently released the latest iOS. iOS7 is packed with a new and fresh look plus some more exciting and cool stuff. Here are some of the fresh features in iOS7:

  1. Block messages, and calls, including FaceTime and iMessage. It’s probably not new to non-iOS devices, and surely one feature that we’ve always been hoping Apple to add to support, but this breakthrough feature will definitely add more value and razzle-dazzle to the iPhone.
  2. A more intelligent Siri. The new and improved Siri can now do more for you! Teach Siri how to say a word, Tweet for you, FaceTime a friend, and a whole lot more. Siri can also handle your calls! Cool! Tired of the old and boring Siri? You can now change its voice to Male.  Siri in iOS7 comes in a more natural sounding female and male voice.
  3. Timestamp in messages. In the older iOS versions, there is no way to find out what specific time you received/sent a text message . Not anymore with iOS7. Swipe to left to reveal the timestamp.
  4. Efforlessly kill an app. Killing an app in iOS7 is no sweat. Double click the home button and swipe up the app you wish to kill. Easy!

To those who haven’t updated to iOS7 yet, here’s a quick walkthrough. It’s a fresh iOS look and I can say that it’s ultimately the best iOS so far!

How to Organize Business Cards using Evernote

Evernote Logo

At some point in our lives, we all had to battle with clutter, right? Office papers, school projects, official receipts, or whatever!

In the office, or during business gatherings and stuff, especially in the corporate world, we always deal with business cards. Of course, some of these contacts are important, so we don’t wanna lose them. In the end, you end up having stacks of cards on your desk or your wallet no longer has room for money because it’s all business cards! 😀

I’ve always been a fan of Evernote. I use it in the office as my main note tool. Meetings, events, work strategies and tips; I always put everything in Evernote. Aside from taking down notes, I also find Evernote very useful in converting documents and print outs into digital files.

In this post, I will teach you how to save space and organize your contacts by converting your Business Cards digitally. Well, one can always manually type in the info on the card and save it in the phone book, but with my tip, you preserve the actual look of the business card and still have that personal feel of the card, only digital.

Facebook iOS Update: Chat Heads and Stickers | April 16 2013

Update your Facebook for iOS and see an amazing redesign of the interface. New font and flat theme. Plus, it features an all new chat which gives users the ability to send giant emoji images or Stickers, as Fabeook calls ’em.

Check out the screencapture from my iPhone 4S. You will see on the video that while you are browsing through your Facebook Timeline or News Feed, you can still see chat messages from your friends via the Chat Heads. Message previews and notifications pops out of the icon each time a new chat is received.
