About Us

“We are, and aim to always be, the most complete database of phone tips, tricks and shortcuts on the internet”

How we came about

Today’s phones are packed full of applications to help us in our daily lives. From the calendar to organise our routine, to the maps application to help us get where we’re going.

Furthermore, the operating systems that power these applications have evolved to be as intuitive and logical as possible to use – the classic example being Apple’s iOS which anyone can pick up and start using.

Many users, however, don’t realise that their phone contains loads of hidden tips, tricks, shortcuts and hacks. A very simple example is when you press and hold on certain screen objects. This action will often reveal extra menu options. If your phone has a keyboard, then there may be shortcuts like CTRL+C (to copy) and CTRL+P (to paste) that can really save you time.

While saving a second here or there might not seem that much, think how many times you pull your phone out of your pocket or handbag and repeat these tasks. It all adds up.

What’s more, it’s fun to learn these tips and share them with your friends!

Where we’re going
