HOW TO: Write emails in rich text format with iOS 5

This week is tutorial week :-) ! With iOS 5, you will soon be able to write emails in rich text (ie bold, italics, underlined) – here is how to do that. iOS5 is coming out in a few hours, I hope you guys are excited!

    Hey N, i would like some Siri’s Easter Egg screenshot compilation from your iOS5, new post idea :)

    • I’d love to but unfortunately you need a 4S to use Siri. I have more ideas though, so keep checking the blog ;-)

    after I select a word to “bold” then click on right arrow to select that option the only “option” that comes us is “Define”….nothing else appears….what can I be doing incorrectly

    • That’s really weird! Are you in Mail or are you in another app? It wouldn’t work for texting people, but it should work in Gmail, Mail, etc.
