Two Cool iPhone Discoveries

Posted by Aaron West at 7:04 PM in iPhone

Having had my iPhone for 8 months now I can't imagine life without it. It's one of my most coveted possessions and is truly a remarkable device. In the last week I've discovered two cool things other iPhone users may want to know about.

First, every time you connect your iPhone on a Mac, iPhoto launches. If you use iPhoto this is probably behavior you appreciate. For an Adobe Lightroom user - like me - this is completely annoying. I did a bit of googling last week and found Scott McAndrew's blog which had a solution for stopping this behavior. Check it out if you're interested.

The second thing I discovered occurred while listening to music and writing e-mail at the same time. The iPhone has a setting that allows you to choose what program launches if you double-click the Home button. I have mine set to open the iPod software. If you have yours set the same, anytime you double-click the Home button (when not in the iPod) an iPod pop-up window will appear allowing you to pause your audio, move to the previous or next track, change the volume, and see what artist/track is playing.
