I’ve had my iPhone for over a year and have just discovered that I can take screenshots. I’m on a screenshot binge right now – this is fun! Actually, it’s also very useful as we are finalising our functional specs and since we are a team with desks located across 8 time zones, we can’t just turn to our colleagues and show them examples of screens we like!! This was a screenshot of Total Baby’s slide up data entry that we liked – very smooth and clean.

I learned this particular trick from John Casasanta over at Tap, Tap, Tap. If you don’t know them yet (but really, how could you not?), check out their apps after you’ve read the blog entry. Their blog is always full of great stories, info and tips for iphone developers.

For our global audience, the ‘extra key’ trick (#5) is also very handy. Several of the alphabetic keys, most notably the vowels, give you international versions if you hold them for a bit longer than normal. For both myPause and myShoebox , there will be field entries for which our users will want to use these extra keys. A great shortcut.

Any more secrets or tips that have come out recently?
