iPhone Keyboard Shortcuts Tutorial
How to make your own iPhone Keyboard Shortcuts
Whether you are busy, or just plain impatient, integrating speed and efficiency into your everyday life is always a good idea. I personally like to use iPhone Keyboard Shortcuts for a few commonly used terms such as: OMW, TTYL, IDK or anything else you might use. That way I can simply type “omw” and my iPhone will auto-correct to the full lengthed “on my way”. This feature is great because not only is it fast, but you don’t have to worry about whether or not the recipient of your message understands text slang.
ASK Designs put together a nice picture tutorial for those looking to shave a few seconds off their texting speed.
