Shake to undo in iOS
Authored by: brunow on Oct 21, '10 11:32:06AM

@ both guys named Mark

I think this is a great site, no need to be so negative.
Some things you already know, some things you don't.
While I consider myself a heavy mac user, and knowing quite a lot about the mac, this is the first time I heard about this "shake to undo in iOS".

Like most people, I'm not a manual reader (is there actually a manual for the iPhone?)
I've got better things to do in my life.
So this site is great in pointing out hidden (or not very obvious) features.

You guys seem to have all the time in the world to read the manual from first to last page, and of course also to send negative comments.
Maybe you should find yourself something interesting to do, that will save the rest of us from having to read your stupid comments.

Just my 5 cents.

(and sorry for the bad English, but this is not my mother tongue)

You've missed the point. There's nothing wrong with listing all of the features of something, for people to read through and find ones they hadn't spotted, but doing so isn't a hint. At least, not in the way this site used to give them.

This site used to be a place you could come to find interesting undocumented ways to make the most of Apple products; useful things you were unlikely to find elsewhere. If this kind of thing is going to be accepted as a hint (not to mention the even worse one, published recently, about getting back to the home screen when installing an app; far harder than the fully supported and bleedin' obvious method), then we would be better off simply having a list.

I'm just asking for a return to the days when we had quality, not quantity, here. Crarko said it himself; he said he was posting it for completeness. This site didn't use to be about completeness, it used to be about quality hints.

IMHO it is obvious and not hidden, but apparently not everybody things so. I can only hope the editor will consider both our opinions and respond to it with a sound argument, which settles this matter for once and for all.


Have your own custom software created

Mark & Mark are absolutely correct. You have missed the point, as has the person who calls them "hint snobs."

This is:
1) A feature clearly documented in the manual.
2) Bloody obvious to anyone who owns and iPhone that they don't keep mounted on a steadycam.

Documenting this is a hint is no different from documenting that the red circle closes windows in the Finder.
