Quick Tips: Type faster URLs on the iPhone

0:44 /

Not every site ends with ".com" and Brian Tong shows you how to enter those other URLs faster.

[ Background Music ] >> Have you ever wanted to find a faster way to type in URL's on your iPhone that don't end with .com? I'm Brian Tong with cnet.com and I'll show you how with the latest iPhone 2.0 software. Now, we're gonna jump into Safari and start typing in a website. Now, you'll always see the .com button, but what about other sites? Well, what if we wanted to type something like craigslist.org. I'll type in craigslist and now, instead of pressing the .com button, I'll hold it down and it shows me a few other options like .net, .edu, and .org. So, just slide your finger over to the one you want and you'll save yourself those extra valuable seconds of your life. So, there you go, I'm Brian Tong for cnet.com with a quick tip for the day.
