Did you know your iPhone (with iOS firmware 3.0 and later) has a hidden feature that will let you “undo” a typing mistake in most applications by simply shaking the phone? This is a great trick! Today I was typing a short note about a Bible verse which I posted to the “Eyes Right” blog and also posted to the YouVersion community. I was highlighting my paragraph and accidentally typed a key which replaced all the text I’d just entered! Thankfully, I learned it’s possible to quickly SHAKE your iPhone and bring up a menu choice to UNDO TYPING.
I clicked UNDO TYPING and my paragraph of text was restored to my email message! What a relief!
Hat tip to this YouTube video by AppStoreReviewer for sharing this trick. I found the video by Googling “iphone typing undo.” I cross-posted my note to my WordPress blog from the YouVersion Bible app using email and a free Posterous blog. The free daily Bible reading plans on the YouVersion Bible app are outstanding and a great way to “read the Word” each day! I also learned today the YouVersion site and app creates a publicly viewable “activity feed” which includes verses you bookmark, comments by other users you like, and comments you make (and “attach”) to specific verses. Very cool.
