iPhone keyboard shortcuts – iPhone tips


One of the neat features in iOS 5 is the ability to shortcuts (which usually means a couple of letters) that the iPhone recognizes and inserts a longer phrase.  For instance, I added “drv” as a shortcut for the phrase “I’m driving, I will call you back when my vehicle is no longe in motion“.  The shortcuts have a lot of uses and quick text or email responses is but one.

You can find the settings for shortcuts by going:  Settings -> General -> Keyboard  -> Shortcuts (At the bottom of the page).  Check out some pictures below to see how the iPhone shortcuts work:

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
