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.
