Recover Storage Space on Your iPhone or iPad

iPhone Notification Storage Full

When I bought my latest iPhone, I opted for the least expensive one with the least amount of storage. As a result, I am always getting notified that I am out of storage space and have to delete the APPS I haven’t used in awhile, only to find myself putting them back on when I want to use them again.

Fortunately, I came across this quick tip. I use Safari as my mobile web browser. What I didn’t realize is that it caches all the data files of photos and videos it loads. After clearing my cache the first time, I gained 62 MB of storage! To clear your Safari cache go to:

  • SETTINGS
  • scroll down and tap the SAFARI ICON in the list on the left
  • scroll down the list on the right and tap CLEAR HISTORY AND WEBSITE DATA

It looks like I’ll be making it a habit to clear my cache from now on.

I hope this tips is helpful. Do you have any other tips that can save storage space on an iPhone? Let me know in the comments below.

FREE Voice Recognition With Editing Capability Available in Google Docs

Voice Typing in Google Docs

Those of you who have been following my blog, know from previous posts, how much I love talking to my computer and letting it type for me. Seriously, I dictate just about everything; my texts, emails, blog articles, papers, notes, well, you get the idea. Why, because it’s SO MUCH FASTER and SO MUCH EASIER.

I just discovered that there is a Voice Recognition Add-On for Google Docs, called ‘Voice Typing’, that enables dictation and editing by using simple verbal commands. That’s pretty impressive considering it’s FREE!

I will be the first to admit dictating to your computer does take some getting use to, but it’s well worth the effort.

Long ago, Bill Gates predicted the keyboard would become obsolete. That’s certainly not the case yet, but VOICE RECOGNITION and TOUCH SCREENS are the future of technology. I would highly encourage you to give it a try. If you do, try it for at least a week. You may not decide to dictate everything, as I do, but I’ll just bet you’ll begin to see the advantages.

Here’s a short video to show you how ‘Voice Typing’ works in a Google Doc. If you decide to give it a try, I would love to hear about your experience. Let me know in the comments below.
