Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 27, 2013

iOS 7 added a ton of great new features to your iDevice; here are a few you might not yet have discovered. Custom folders on your home screen are now better than ever, because Apple removed the limit on the number of apps you can keep in each folder. Got more than 16 productivity apps you want to keep in one place? No problem! Also, did you know that if head into your device’s Compass app and swipe to the second page, you’ll find a bubble level interface? Your iPhone can now tell you if a surface is level or not, which means you no longer have need a dedicated spirit level app. Speaking of clearing out apps, you no longer need a flashlight app either, as swiping up from the bottom of your screen opens Command Center, giving you one-touch access to many handy features, including a flashlight. It’s a very smart addition and, frankly, one that should have been included years ago.
