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:
- Open the email, messages, etc. that you received the movie in
- Tap on the icon or preview and hold on it
- 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.
