Type faster on the iPhone using shortcuts Posted on Tuesday, September 18th, 2012 at 10:39 am. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple Great tip from Dave Caolo. http://twitter.com/Gridlock Ben Personal fave is email addresses, so “emg”, “emb” etc for my various addresses.Do these shortcuts sync across devices on iOS6? iPad/iPhone currently have to be set up separately, which is a barrier. http://twitter.com/RoadRacer DT Same here with the email addresses since they tend to be longer[ish] and have @s and dots. I use a couple of letters plus the @ for email shortcuts (like da@ or ed@, works great).
