Do you like to have a different sound for various things on your iOS devices? Do you like a different sound when new mail comes in and when you send email? You might want to have a different sound when a calendar alert comes in than when a reminder does. Personally, I love having different sounds for all of the different things that can happen on my devices, especially different ring tones for each of the people in my life that call me the most.

I do not know many who do not love music these days. We all have our favorites genres and our favorite artists that we listen to. What would you say about an app that allows you to listen to thousands of radio stations for free? You could also create your own stations and would not have to put up with any commercials? Well get comfortable and I will tell you all about this music app that does this and much more.
I asked Siri a question one day since updating to iOS7. When given the answer, I responded by saying, “Thank you.” Siri answered me back by telling me, “Your wish is my command.” While Siri may not be able to anything we wish, for if that were the case I’d be in Disney World, there is no doubt that Siri can do lots more for us than ever before.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is a quote which holds true for settings in iOS7. Many of the familiar items that were in iOS6 are still here, and some new ones have been added. The The order may have changed a bit, but most of the settings you are used to are still there, some with changes.
Introducing the new and improved folder system in iOS 7. I’m sure you recall that in iOS6, the maximum number of apps you could have in a folder was 12. But what if you had more than 12 apps of a certain category, like productivity, or lifestyle, or games?
Voice mail is a wonderful feature that is standard on every iPhone. Though some of the features you have come to expect and use are still present in iOS7, there have been some changes. The interface is different, but once you read through how to listen to your voice mails, as well as the other things you can do with them, you will find it all very easy.
The General settings category under settings can almost be an app all its own. After all, there are quite a bit of controls within it, along with information such as capacity, available space, and usage of our iPhones. And it is home to the most important setting area of all to those of us in the blindness community, Accessibility. It is one of the first places we visit when even a smaller update is released, let alone a major one like iOS7. Naturally, there are some changes within the General settings, with the most changes, as it turns out, being under Accessibility.
