Rearranging your Apps

Are you tired of having to scroll through pages of apps to simply find one short game? Well luckily for you, you can not only rearrange their order, but also group them in folders.

To move an app all you have to do is simply tap and hold the icon you want to move, and after a tiny wait youíll be able to drag it around the screen and place it on any page you like.

To create a folder, all you have to do is follow the steps above, but then place the icon on top of another. This will group the two together in folder which you can rename. Each folder can hold over ten apps each so you no longer need to search through pages of apps to find your favourites.

Saving Images from the Internet

Ever found an online image that you thought would make a great background but you had no idea how to save the image? Sure you have. Hereís a simple way to solve that problem and save an image from the internet.

By simply tapping and holding an image, youíll be prompted to save the image. This will then be placed into your pictures library.

Typing Faster

This is a tip for those who send a lot of emails or make a lot of notes.
