Customize Your iPhone

I’ve been on an iphone for over 3 years. I’ve had times that I’ve used other phones for short periods of times, but I’ve always gone back to my iphone. Over the past few months, I’ve learned little things about my phone that I didn’t know and even discovered a great tutorial on an app that you can download to customize your icons and wallpaper.  I always start out customizing my phone with cute cases.


 These customized iPhone cases are fun if you are looking to add a picture or monogram to make it more yours.

Are you ready to personalize your home screen?  Meet CocoPPA. It’s actually a free app that you download to get customized icons and wallpaper for FREE! Cindy Emerson Photography offers a great step by step tutorial that she got from the StyleFake blog.  Below is my front screen of my iphone that I first see when I unlock the phone. I love how it turned out and that I can go back and change them at anytime.

This next article is 25 awesome iPhone tips and tricks. I’ve used a lot of these tips over and over since learning them. A lot of them are simple and ones that you could learn if you spent a lot of time experimenting with your phone. However, there were quite a few that I didn’t know. One of those tips was the Emoji (emotions) keyboard that I didn’t have activated. A few simple sets in settings and I’m able to add a ton of different emotions into my text messages, facebook, instagram and other apps. For this particular tip, you go to settings > general > keyboard. Once in keyboard, select international keyboards and add. Then you select Emoji. When you type a new text message or other application where you can type, select the globe icon to see your emoticons. Find more iPhone tips and tricks here.

Lastly was this top 5 apps list for Instagram. With Instagram being such a popular app, Landlopers gives you the top 5 must have apps for Instagram and mobile photography. The first app that he talks about in this article is Camera+. It’s a paid app but I never use the normal camera on my phone, I always use Camera+. It takes much better pictures and you are able to edit photos and save them to your camera roll.
