Reveal link URLs in iPhone's Mail app iOS devices
My coworker Dan Frakes uncovered this little nugget: if you're reading an HTML email in the iPhone's Mail app, you can tap-and-hold on the link, and the destination URL will be shown. This prevents inadvertent clicking on spammy URLs, where the spammer has set the link text to one thing, and the link URL to another. Dan's got a screenshot of how it looks on the linked page above.

This also works in Safari on the iPhone, and that behavior is documented in the iPhone's user manual. (The manual is a downloadable PDF, and is not included in the iPhone's box. I imagine that's because the iPhone's functionality will be changing with future updates, and a printed manual would be nearly instantly out of date. Still, it would've been nice to find the download URL in the included documentation, at the least.)
