This New Instagram Sticker Lets You Quiz Your Friends, and BRB, Updating My Story

Instagram is always bringing something new to the table to help us interact with our followers, and I can feel my inner Riddler rubbing his hands together in a mischievous fashion thanks to the app's latest update: the Quiz sticker! Unlike the Instagram Stories Question sticker, which allows your followers to ask you questions, the Quiz sticker turns the tables and puts you in charge of a multiple-choice question that your followers can answer. Available on iPhone and Android, the new feature i...

Can You Hyperlink Text in an iPhone Email? We Have the Annoying Answer

One of the advantages (or disadvantages, depending on how you slice it) of having an iPhone is being connected 24/7. You can be reached by anyone at any time, and that includes work emails. If you use your smartphone a lot to send quick responses to coworkers and bosses, you've probably wondered if you can hyperlink text in the Mail app, which means highlighting certain key words for someone to click on to bring them to a specific website instead of having to click on the long (and usually...

Yep, There's a Limit to How Many Instagram Stories You Can Post in 1 Day

Who doesn't love a good Instagram Story? Rather than posting one picture, you can literally document your entire day. Plus, you can see who's checking you out (and vice-versa, unfortunately). Like Snapchat, Instagram Stories now come complete with filters, GIFs, stickers, backgrounds, fonts, and more, and are a less permanent way of keeping your followers up to date on your daily activities. While posting a few here and there is great, have you ever gotten annoyed or overwhelmed when someo...

Accidentally Archive an Email in Gmail? Here's How to Find It

After Gmail upgraded its look last year, accidentally archiving emails became a bit of a theme for a lot of people. And if you're one of them, you've probably asked yourself, "Where the heck did they go?!," more than once. But don't worry, those emails are still there and easy to find - all it takes is a quick change to your settings. The first thing to note is that an archived email is simply an email with the label "Inbox" removed and no other label placed on it. If you intend to get ri...

This New App Is Going to Make Meeting Up With Friends For Happy Hour SO Much Easier

Picture this: it's a Summer afternoon and your phone is blowing up. You're at work and trying to be productive, so you turn the group chat on Do Not Disturb mode (don't lie, we've all done it). The issue is, your friends can't decide where to meet for happy hour or what time it's acceptable to leave work, and the messages are pouring in with Yelp reviews, Open Table reservations, and even screenshots of what time sunset is - gotta get that 'gram! As much as we love our friends, the group chat an...

Forgot Your iPhone Passcode? Here’s How to Get Back In

It happens to the best of us - you grab your iPhone to check your email or scroll through Instagram, but your brain completely blanks when it comes to your passcode. You've typed it in hundreds of times before, but having what seems like a million passwords for every site, portal, bank account, and channel can sometimes make them all melt into each other. Yikes! So what do you do? Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you're worried about your phone falling into the wrong hands), Apple hasn't ...

Here's How to Unblock a Number on Your iPhone

When it comes to strange incoming calls on my cell phone, I almost always hit "Block Caller." Incessant scam callers, middle-of-the-night calls from unknown numbers (creepy!), and telemarketers all end up in the same place - on my "Blocked Callers" list. But what happens when you accidentally block someone you didn't mean to (this has actually happened to me before)? Or you're on good terms with someone again that you used to have blocked (no judgment!)? Thankfully, it's pretty easy to unblock ...

Gmail Storage Almost Full? This Is the Easy Way to Get More Space

I wish I were one of those people who keep their email inbox at zero and stay on top of discarding old Google documents that are floating around in their Google Drive, but alas, I am not. Instead, I'm pretty sure my unread messages in my inbox number in the thousands (I know, but I promise I read them all!), and I have years' worth of Google spreadsheets that I can't seem to part with from projects that I did nearly half a decade ago. Thankfully, though, I don't have to do a mass deleting of Go...

Much to My Bank Account's Dismay, Instagram Has Launched a Stupid-Easy Checkout Feature

Shopping just got dangerously easy - or, well, easier. Instagram recently announced a new feature that will allow users to purchase items they encounter on their feed without ever leaving the app. (We said it was dangerous!) The checkout feature is prompted by tapping on a brand's shopping post, at which point users will be asked to select their size and any other variables. The last step will ask users to enter their billing and contact information, which will be saved for future purchases. The...

Your iPhone Tracks Your Frequent Locations, So Alexa, Play "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell

The more I learn about the iPhone, the more I feel that it's capable of doing pretty much anything.

I Ignored This Simple iPhone Message All the Time, and It Cost Me 4+ Hours in the Store

A few weeks ago, my husband and I ventured to our nearby phone store to get new iPhones. We were due for an upgrade and were both easily sold on the iPhone X - me for the amazing camera capabilities, and my husband for game storage. But while his transition from his old phone to a new one only took about 20 minutes, mine took over four hours. Why? Because I never backed up my phone. Ever. And they couldn't transfer all of my data from my old phone to my new one without it being backed up. Throu...
