Let us see that how these features can be used.

All Editing Features on a Single Screen

The moment you launch the application, you will see ‘All videos’ which can be used to see all video available on your device, the video which have already been uploaded which highlighted whereas the rest will be accompanied by the option of edit and upload.

[Fix] What and Why are these Blue Dots on iPhone [iOS New Feature]

There is a new UI feature in the new iOS7 which puts a blue dot behind the name of the application which has been recently installed or which has been recently updated. Now in this post I will tell you that what does this signify and if your iPhone is automatically putting this in front of every application now and then (even if you don’t manually update it), then what is the reason behind it.

image

This blue dots just tell you that after the install of that application or after its latest update you have not opened it once. The moment you open it, this blue dot will go away and there is not provision to completely remove it. However, if this comes on every application even if you don’t update it, then there is a small unknown setting on iPhone which has been doing this.

Reasons Why They Exist

Open the Settings section and then search for the option of App Store. Here you will see that the automatic updates option is toggled as ON, which means that as soon as the update arrives it uses the WiFi network through which your iPhone is connected and then updates that application. Hence, you see that Blue dot without doing anything.

image

It may also happen if you will update the applications on your iTunes on desktop or laptop and then once your iPhone is synced with it, iTunes will replace all the old applications with the new updated versions and thus again you will see the same dot before the name of the updated applications (as they have not been opened since updated.)

Conclusion

This feature has really troubled many of the users. I just took a look at one of my friend’s iPhone and told him that you have not used this application till now. He was surprized that how did I tell him and so here goes the trick in this post. Please let us know if you face problem while following this tip or if you face any other problem on your iPhone.

By default the selected location will be the current location, but you can also decide whether you want to be reminded while leaving that location or while coming to it. Select the suitable option.

If you want to change the location, then tap the ‘Current Location’ section and then enter the exact address. Apple Maps is not that awesome, so you cannot expect it locate your entered address promptly and accurately.

Apart from these, you can tap the show more section to add any details in the Notes section and to set the priority of the reminder. That’s it, the reminder will be set.

Conclusion

Honestly speaking, I will still search for some other tweak or application which can set the location based reminders by taking the help of Google Maps. Else Current location option is good to go. This application is easy to use and saves time.

Know When Does Other Person Opened Whatsapp To Read Your Sent Message

Privacy is always a big concern of the users while using any application of internet or on their phones. WhatsApp has the feature of showing the users the ‘time-stamp’ of when the other user checked his/her WhatsApp. It might be annoying for you, when you do not want to reply the message but the user at the other end knows that you have already seen the message. To get rid of this problem you can turn off this feature of Time-Stamp feature which will erase that Time-Stamp of your chat.

But once you turn off this feature you will not be able to see the Time-Stamp of any other user, another problem is that you cannot toggle this feature again and again whenever you want, rather once you disable this feature it will take a gap of 24 hours to enable it again but it will get disabled whenever you want it to be.

Go to Settings and then tap Chat Settings, here most of the users get confused with the option named ‘Message Timestamp’, this feature is the small bubble below every chat message which shown the time at which message was sent or received. Disabling this feature will remove that bubble.

image

Go to the advanced section and then you will see the Last Seen Timestamp feature. Disabling this feature will stop showing your ‘Last Seen timestamp’ to other users and showing others’ Last Seen timestamp to you.

image

Important Note

Please remember that the last seen timestamp tells you that at what time the application was launched, it does not specify whether the user saw your chat or not. Even if the user does read a chat but only opens it, the Last Seen Timestamp will updated for his/her profile.

Conclusion

This feature is good but most of the iPhone users do not know about it. It is similar to the profile views feature of orkut. I expect that in the next update we might be able to block the last seen Timestamp for a particular user.

[How To] Set Different iPhone Ringtone For Each Contact

Sometimes we need to personalize the ringtones for some of the contacts in your iPhone so that we could know them by just hearing the ringtone and in this post we will not use any application or a jailbreak tweak to do that. You can change the ringtones, text-tone and the vibration style for a particular contact.

Go to contacts and after opening a particular contact, go to its details with ‘Edit’ option. Now you will see the fields for selecting the ringtone, text-tone and their vibration patter.
image

Tap each of them to change them from default to any other ringtone. You cannot choose any ringtone or text-tone as ‘None’ because you will not see ‘None’ as the option in the ringtone list. But if you still want to allot a silent ringtone to any one of the contact, then I will suggest you to create a silent ringtone using any of the application from App store and then you can choose it while selecting the ringtones for the contact.
image

If the selected tone for the contact is default then you will not see them on the contact detail, but once you change it then you will see them on the details screen.
image

Conclusion

This feature works fine to differentiate any contact with the rest of them but in order to mark a user with a silent ringtone with no vibration, you will have to create a silent ringtone and a blank vibration pattern. I have used different ringtones for the contacts in my favorite list and they are helpful.

[How-To] Add Plus Symbol While Dialing or Adding a Contact on iPhone

If you are dealing with the phone numbers where most of them include extension numbers, then we do have a very simple solution to it to save your time. Usually, when the call is connected then you need to enter those extension numbers, usually you cannot save them on the phone and every time you will have to enter them manually. Today in this post we will mention a way in which you can add that number in the same contact details (we will not use any other application or jailbreak tweak of this)

Open the details of any contact in the ‘Edit’ Mode and then take your cursor in the mobile number at the end of the last digit and then press the key at left hand bottom corner ‘+*#’.

image

On the other keypad, press ‘wait’, this will add a semi-colon (;) after the last digit in the contacts number.
image

Now you can add an extension number and then save. You can see that I have made you add the wait character which will wait once the number written before is dialed and then will ask you to dial the rest.
image

Now when you will call that same number, you will see a new button which will say ‘Dial (Extn Number)’. Once the call is connected you can use dial button for that that set of number whenever needed.
image

Conclusion

This is one of the simple tweaks which are not used very often and thus unknown to many of the users. So, next time when you want to save the number of any restaurant using zomato (with the extension number) then you can use this tweak.
