Ever feel like you’re not using all the capabilities of your iPad or iPhone? Well, the Wall Street Journal has compiled a list of Ten Tips and Tricks Every iPhone and iPad User Should Know. Here’s a few of our favorites:

  • Read Websites More Easily: “Tap the Reader button, found in the URL bar at the top of a Web page, and you’ll see a much clearer, predominantly text version of the page. Even better: This view hides advertisements.”
  • Speed from App to App: “There are shortcuts for jumping around apps without going to the home screen. Double tap the Home button (a physical button below the screen) to see a pop-up tray of apps and swipe to the left to scroll through them. Select one to jump to it.
  • A Smarter Camera: “If you’ve ever wished your iPhone camera had a physical shutter button, look no further. The phone’s volume up (+) button doubles as a shutter button whenever the Camera app is opened. This hard button feels sturdier all around, plus it makes it a cinch to take self-portraits or to tell strangers how to take a photo of you and your friends.”
  • Tap to Scroll Up: “Give your pointer finger a rest from scrolling up, up, up to get back to the top of a page. Tap once on the status bar – where the time and battery life are displayed – at the top edge of the iPhone or iPad screen and you’ll jump up to the top.”
  • Take Screenshots: “Press the Home button and the On/Off button (top right edge) simultaneously to take a screenshot of whatever you see on the device. You’ll hear the same sound as when you take a picture with the Camera app. You can find all of your screenshots stored in Camera Roll.”
