    Since I have decided to switch from android to iOS, I'd like to know if there are any secret or uncommon features about iOS or the iPhone 4S.

    I have watched several youtube videos, but am curious about direct user suggestions.

    Something I didnt know for a while was street view in the Maps App.

    When dropping a PIN or searching a address. Just click the orange circle to the left.

    Embarrassingly enough I just found you can swipe notifications from the lock screen instead of the lock a couple weeks ago.

    I find myself using the dictionary more and more. I almost wish it wasn't 'hidden' as much as it is. It'd be nice if it were one of the initial selections after highlighting a word.

    I've got I tell someone about this!

    The speak feature in accessibility. It's amazing.

    In English class, I don't need to read these long stories. With this app, I just take a picture of it, OCR the image into text select and then have Siri read it to me.

    It's a life saver!!
