I haven't read all the post so I don't know if it was mentioned, but I now love that I can attach more than 1 photo to an email.

Honeydo lists in the 21st century.
But you can't share Reminders lists between multiple iCloud accounts from the phone itself, which is what I meant (sorry if I wasn't clear). My wife and I don't share an iCloud account.

This feature has been there since iOS 4.x.

I still hate that they limit you to 5 photos per email (unless you copy/paste them in groups of 5).

Been there for a while. But yes, it's cool.

Wow, I didn't even notice it before now. Well great feature...I think they limit it to 5 because there is a size limit on most email accounts of how big the email can be.

Sort of makes sense, but it should just throw a warning when the email is over XX MB's especially since it does ask if you want to reduce the size of the images before sending.

That feature was not available to iPod owners, I had a second gen iPod and now a 4th gen iPod that until now only displayed the icon.

Safari - Back arrow shows history

Didn't see this when I searched this thread.

If you long press the back browse arrow on Safari on iPad, it now shows your browsing history on that tab.

Not sure about iPhone since I don't have one.

If you have duplicate contacts in your iCloud Contacts List and your Exchange Contacts List, and you are viewing "All Contacts", it is displayed as a single contact under the heading "Unified Info" and it identifies the "Linked Cards".

It is not 100%, but close. I wish there were a way to force it to link the cards for the ones it missed, but I can't see how to do that.

I saw that option in calendar on iCloud.com but thought it was pretty stupid (we already share a calendar), but if your saying you can keep an on going grocery list that you can add and delete items, that's pretty cool!

More Safari goodness: if you hold down the new tab button you get a list of closed tabs and you can reopen them. You can also rearrange the tabs by dragging them left or right.

It's the sunshine w/ 73 degrees on it Also you can touch the top of your screen (by the ear speaker) and pull down, it's at the top. Click it to go to the weather app or slide to the right or left to see the forecast.

You can also use Spotlight Search (left-most screen) to search for the Weather app. Just type in "Weather" and it should show up. It won't show you where it's located but you can there from it.

It'd be nice if the OP could consolidate a list in the first post.

A piece of trivia. That icon dates back to the original iPod.

Something i just noticed, i haven't found this in the thread yet so i wanted to mention it because it was SOOOOO damn annoying.

On 4.3.5 if you had a message screen up with someone and decided you didn't want to lock it and didn't want to go to the home screen because you knew you would text that person again soon you sometimes just threw the phone on your bed or couch and would get that nice notification pop up that says:

Nothing to Undo
With the only button that says "cancel"

THIS IS FINALLY GONE!!!

If you haven't typed something yet and shake it, it wont try to undo nothing!!

Agreed, I've tried and don't see how a grocery list can be set up. Can you share details on the steps to get this going?

I just set it up, but havnt tried it in real world yet.

Goto icloud on your pc or mac. Create a reminder topic under calendars. Share that reminder with whoever you want (you can also share calenders with anyone). I setup a grocery and family todo list. I cant even get my wife to record checking account withdrawls, so will have to see how well this works...


by the way, old trick if anyone hasnt seen it

click on link on any ios device to automatically add a U.S. holiday in your calendar.

http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/...blic/basic.ics

if clicking doesnt work, copy/ paste to:
settings>mail,contacts,calendar>add account>other>add subscribed calendar

I got that far, just not sure how to create items on the list. Looks like for each entry you would have to set it up to remind you every day. This could be tedious with a long grocery list.
