    I don't know when this got put into iOS, but I think it's brilliant.
    Go onto Notes, either add a new note or just use the current one. Then type something such as:
    [​IMG]

    iOS recognises anything like those bits of text as a time and date. You just select the underlined text and it pops up with a "Create Event" option, and it adds it to the calendar!

    I don't know how well known this feature is but I find it so much quicker to quickly enter a date and time into Notes and get iOS to do all the work for me. Haven't tried it but it might even work in emails.
    :D

    Oops, how do I make the picture smaller? =/

    This is useful in Mail. If you get an email with a date in it, you can just tap the date and create an event from there. Same with Safaril
