Unit 2: SECTION 10, Exercises.
- What can you do BEFORE your iOS Device is lost or stolen to prevent anyone from accessing the information in your contacts list?
Your contacts list will have a great deal of Personally Identifiable Information which can be used by criminals for identity theft, targeting children and the elderly, or electronic stalking. The best way to protect this information is to use a passcode on your phone which is difficult to guess, and to set the autolock timeout to as short an interval as you can manage. More about this in the lesson on Security, coming soon.
- What are the two main screens of the Contacts App?
The two main screens are the Contacts List Screen and the Contact Card Screen. The contact Card screen has two modes; the View mode, and the Edit mode.
- What happens if you single finger double tap a telephone number on a Contact Card in View mode? What happens if you do the same thing when the contact card is in Edit mode?
The single finger double tap is an Activate gesture. If you activate a phone number while the Contact Card Screen is in View mode, you will dial it. You must be in Edit mode if you want to edit the number instead of dialing it. You enter edit mode for the contact card using the Edit button at the top right of the Contact Card Screen.
- How can you filter your contacts list only to show people in one area code?
First launch the Contacts app from the Home Screen and activate the search text field above the Contacts list. When the keyboard appears at the bottom of the screen, use the "More Numbers" button to switch to the numbered keyboard. The "More Numbers" button is at the bottom left of the keyboard. Finally enter the area code using the keyboard numbers. Your contacts list should now display only contacts from that area code.
NOTE: There is one caveat to this. Let's suppose you enter the area code "212," which is an area code in New York City, but you have a contact who lives in Atlanta with a street address of "212 Any Name Road." In this case the contact would still show up in your filtered list.
- Where is the Table Index Bar? Once you make it the Current Item, what are the two ways to quickly move through the contacts list?
The table Index Bar is a narrow band on the right side of the contacts list. You make it the current item by exploring to the right from any point in the contact list. When VoiceOver announces, "Table Index Bar," you have made it the Current Item. Now you can use one of two techniques to navigate quickly through the contacts list.
Once the Contacts List Screen is displayed, what are the steps to use the "Zip To" gesture to jump to a particular letter?
- Use the Move Forward/Backward gesture, a single finger flick up/down respectively, to move through the list one letter at a time.
- Use the Zip To gesture, a single finger tap and hold, until your iOS Device chirps. Then without lifting your finger, move slowly up and down until you hear the letter you are looking for.
Remember once the Table Index Bar is the Current Item, you don't have to do the Move forward, Move Backward, or Zip To gestures on the bar. You can do them anywhere on the Contact List Screen.
First, launch the contacts app and explore until you find an item in the contacts list. Any item will do. Second explore slowly to the right. When VoiceOver says, "Table Index Bar," you can lift your finger. The table Index Bar is now the current Item. Now use the Move Forward, Move Backward or Zip To gestures to find the starting letter you are looking for.
What three fields are to the right of the "Add Photo" button near the top of the Contact Card?
The First Name, Last Name and Company fields are stacked vertically and to the right of the "Add Photo" button. They form the top section of the contact card. Below them each field of the card takes up a full row. As you add other fields, the number of rows in the contact card increases, and each row has three items; a delete button on the left, a label button in the middle, and a text field on the right.
How do you allow phone calls from a contact to bypass the "Do Not Disturb" block?
First, activate the contact card for the contact. The card will be in View mode. Second scroll down to the bottom of the card. Third, press the "Add to Favorites" button. Adding a contact to favorites allows their calls to bypass "Do Not Disturb," when your iOS Device is in that mode.
How can you electronically share a contact with another person?
When the contact card you want to share is in View mode, scroll down to the bottom and activate the "Share" button. Then choose how you want to share the card.
What are the steps to delete a contact card?
First display the contact card in View mode. Then Activate the "Edit" button at the top right corner of the Contact Card Screen. Third, scroll down to the bottom of the card and activate the "Delete" button. When the card is deleted, you will be returned to the Contact List Screen.
How can you access the setup options for Contacts?
Launch the Settings App, and find the "Mail, Contacts, and Calendars" button. Activate the button and find the "Contacts" heading. One way to find it is to dial the rotor to the "Headings" function and use the Move Forward gesture. If you overshoot it, use the Move Backward gesture.
If you set up a contact card with your own information, how do you tell your iOS Device which card has info about it's owner? What are some advantages of doing this?
Under the setup options for contacts you will find a "My Info" button. If you press this button, the contacts list will appear. Select the contact card with your info on it. This will help personalize Siri's responses, and allow you to quickly share your contact card with others.
