Another Little Thing…

…that just made my life a little more productive.

And, if you knew this, I apologize for wasting your time this morning.  If you didn’t know this, then you’re joining me in another discovery.

It’s an iPad feature that I just stumbled on.  I don’t know how but I’m glad that I did.

I have my iPad set to give me notifications every time something happens.  So, if I get an email or a Twitter message or a Facebook post or just a notification that it’s my move, it appears on the front screen of my iPad.

No biggy, right?  You just move the little slider at the bottom and log in and then go look for the second level notification – the little red badges attached to the icons.

But, what if that’s not what you want?  What if you had one notification that you wanted to address directly?

It turns out the slider at the bottom of the screen isn’t the only thing that slides.  Each of the notifications potentially slides as well.

So, in the picture above, one of my kids had posted a new photo on Facebook.  I want to see it right away so I just slide over that notification and advance directly to that item.

Who knew?

BTW, Happy Hallowe’en to my readers.


Please share your thoughts here. I’d enjoy reading them.
