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:

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.

The Curve of Forgetting Information

The Forgetting Curve

The image above is a visual example of how quickly we forget information if we don’t review it quickly enough. The graph is based on a one hour lecture. The following is a portion of an article from the Counseling Services at the University of Waterloo.

“On day 1, at the beginning of the lecture, you go in knowing nothing, or 0%, (where the curve starts at the baseline). At the end of the lecture you know 100% of what you know, however well you know it (where the curve rises to its highest point).

By day 2, if you have done nothing with the information you learned in that lecture, didn’t think about it again, read it again, etc. you will have lost 50%-80% of what you learned. Our brains are constantly recording information on a temporary basis: scraps of conversation heard on the sidewalk, what the person in front of you is wearing. Because the information isn’t necessary, and it doesn’t come up again, our brains dump it all off, along with what was learned in the lecture that you actually do want to hold on to!

By day 7, we remember even less, and by day 30, we retain about 2%-3% of the original hour! This nicely coincides with midterm exams, and may account for feeling as if you’ve never seen this before in your life when you’re studying for exams – you may need to actually re-learn it from scratch.”

Here is the link to read the entire article and for suggestions on how to review material. http://bit.ly/1tLUi5T

I can also attest to http://www.3www2.de/marcipanu/1983 one of the best ways to review a class or lecture is to use the Livescribe Smart Pen! The pen will record the lecture while you are taking notes and takes 70 pictures per second of the exact word you are writing at the time you hear specific information the professor is speaking! For more information on the pen and a video demonstration, see this post from August 19th. http://www.tech2succeed.com/?s=livescribe There are 4 different versions of the pen. Should you decide to purchase a pen, I would recommend the Echo or Sky Wi-Fi version. Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions at tech2succeed@gmail.com
