Tips & Tricks // Emoji is now built-in to iOS5, here’s how to enable it!

Emoji could be considered as emoticons 2.0 in the earlier days of iOS5 you had to purchase an app to enable it on your device. AAPL has since baked it into their iOS thus putting Emoji makers out of business and giving you iOS users free Emoji. Yay Apple?
Anyway here we go!
Settings > General > (scroll to Keyboard)
Add New Keyboard
Scroll and select Emoji (you may also add other languages you might need/use)
Now when you have your keyboard up you will notice a globe on the left of the spacebar (left of the text to speech mic if you’re on the 4S). Press and hold, and your presented with your selected keyboards (single press the globe cycles thru your keyboards).
Now when you have Emoji selected you have pages and pages of icons!
Here I am using it customize folder names and gesture names
Curious what that translucent dot on my screen is? Read my AssistiveTouch Tip
NB: EMOJI will show up on devices that support it (so these might not show up on a text you sent to an Android or a WindowsPhone or a BlackBerry or a Nokia – unless they have an Emoji app or Emoji support enabled mobile OS wide)

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
