iOS Tips: selecting words and phrases

And I thought I knew it all. Seems like there are a few shortcuts in iOS that makes your life easier. I’ve found these tips reading Boio’s blog.

So, when you’re writing something on your iOS device, keep in mind these advanced selection shortcuts:

01. Tap twice on word to select whole word.

02. Tap 4 times on paragraph to select whole paragraph.

03. Put one finger in the begining of desired selection and the other in the end and hold for a while. Text between fingers is selected.

04. Tap twice in the beginning of desired selection and immediately start dragging pin to extend it. (don’t detach finger after second tap)

Got any other tips? Let me know!
