Things I didn’t know about iPhone/iTouch 2.x User Interface

August 5, 2008

From the Inside iPhone 2.0 series: the new iPhone 3G Software on AppleInsider.

  • In Safari you can touch & hold on graphic elements to bring up a Save Image dialog.
  • In Safari, a double tap near the top (bottom) of the page will scroll up (down) by a page.
  • Everywhere (?), hold the home button and press-release the lock button on top to take a screen capture. The image is saved in the Saved Photos album in the Photo application.

Anyone cares to share more hidden UI tips?

    How about double tap the home button to display various short cuts – relevant to the iPhones current mode.

    on my iPod the double home button thing brings up a translucent dialog for playback control of the Music app. That works for some apps and not for other (the double tap will bring up the Springboard).

    As you wrote, a sort of shortcut, but only for Music.

    Maybe that’s different on the iPhone?
