  • iOS 7 folders weren’t intended to be used in this way.

Now in iOS 7, when you create a new folder you can add as many apps into that folder as you want. It may sound kind of pointless to be adding a folder into another folder, but it’s a great way to hide some apps you may not like and tuck them away in a nested folder.

I couple of years ago I actually spent money on an app from the App Store to import calendars to my Calendar app. Granted it was only $0.99, but still, I could be $0.99 richer right now. That being said, I’ve decided to pass on this little tip to all of you, not only to save you a bit of spare change but because a Calendar just isn’t complete until you add the Holidays to it.

Instead of grunting at a person like a caveman and pointing at things, or trying to slowly speak your own language in hopes that they’ll somehow understand you, use iTranslate Voice.

In this article I’ll go over some of the awesome features of iTranslate Voice and give a little preview on how to properly use it. Trust me, this app isn’t something you want to miss out on.
