iPhone QuickTip

TouchScreen Capture By John Haley
There are tons of little tricks that you might not be aware of.  With all of the new people clamoring for the iPhone, and all of the new aps that will help you take advantage of the functions of the iPhone's abilities, these tips feed you little tricks that might help you out.

This trick happens to be an easy one.  With all of the new users out there, how about a simple one to start you out - on your way to becoming a power user.  To grab a screen capture, all you need to do is push two buttons.

Thats right! Simply with a push of two buttons, and it works with any app or window you have open.

OK, here are the steps:

STEP 1: Hold down both the POWER button and HOME button at the same time.

  Then just let go of the HOME button still holding the POWER button.

Your whole screen should flash WHITE taking a screen capture.

AFTER that if you look in your photos you will see the picture just taken, then you email it to a friend or download to your computer next time you sync the device.

Here we have a SCREENGRAB I just took!
