Daily Tip: How to change the amount of lines shown in an email preview

Curious how to change the amount of lines shown on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch email preview? If you get a lot of email, it is really handy to see a preview  of the first few lines to know if it is important enough to read and deal with. If you're concerned about privacy, you may prefer to display nothing at all. Out of the box, the iPhone and iPad only show the first two lines of text from an email but that can be changed to show much more, or nothing at all.

PSA: Sharing iPhone 4S contacts also shares Siri relationships

Just a heads up -- if you send a contact via your iPhone 4S' built in sharing feature, you also share everything in that contact, including relationships set up by [http://www.imore.com/siri). For many this may not be a big deal, but if you value your privacy or you don't particularly want or need a business partner, for example, knowing who your mom is or that playful nickname you have for your girlfriend, you might want to think twice before sharing an entire contact card in the future.

How to save a video with iOS 5 on iPhone or iPad

Wondering how to save video attachments you get in Email to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad camera roll? In previous versions of iOS, while you could easily tap-and-hold to save pictures in Mail, Safari, Messages and other built-in-apps, trying to do the same with movies -- movies mailed or messaged from other iPhones and iPads! -- did nothing. (Except frustrate me. Seriously. I almost dented my iPhone trying!)

iOS 5 changes that. Now, just like with pictures, all you have to do to save a video is:

  1. Open the email, messages, etc. that you received the movie in
  2. Tap on the icon or preview and hold on it
  3. When the Save Video button pops up, Tap it!

That's it. The video will now be saved to your Camera Roll for you to use as you so wish.
