Confession #2 - I Can't Live without iOS 8

I LOVE my iOS devices and iOS 8. I find myself wondering how I functioned before this update. Technology is ever changing and I love when there are more efficient ways to be productive. If you have not updated to iOS 8, now is a great time. Take a look at some of my favorite new features. Leave a comment on this post of your favorite feature(s).

Send an Audio Message
In Messages, touch and hold the record audio button to record. Swipe up to send the recording. To delete it instead, swipe left. I found this works best with the headphones/ microphone.

Slide a notification up to dismiss it, or pull it down to reveal actions you can take. For example, with an iMessage, pull down and you can reply right there.

Keep Text Notifications Quiet
Mute notifications for a conversation — handy for, say, a busy group discussion. While viewing the thread, tap Details, then tap Do Not Disturb.

Reach your Favorite People
Double-click the Home button, then tap a favorite or recent contact to call or message. You can add a person to Favorites in Phone.

Tap the to select pictures you love, and they’re automatically gathered in the Favorites album.
