Long pressing—that is, tapping and holding down on a part of your screen—provides a lot of handy shortcuts on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Here’s a look at practically everything you can with this technique to save you a bunch of time typing and navigating your device.
The video above will give you a demo of everything, but here’s the text version for reference.
Tapping and holding a letter on your keyboard will provide you with accented versions of that letter.
Tapping and holding a symbol will provide you with alternate symbols. For example, the dollar sign will offer up a handful of other currency markers.
Tapping the “123” numbers key and sliding your finger to the number you want will type the number and immediately return you to the letter-based keyboard.
Tapping and holding the delete key will delete text faster. In some instances, the speed will increase incrementally with the amount of time you are holding the key.
Tapping and holding anywhere there’s editable text will engage the magnifying glass mode so you can move the text cursor around.
Tapping and holding the .com button in Safari will offer up shortcuts for .org, .net, .edu, and more.
Tapping and holding the back button in some web browsers (and the iPad version of Safari) will let you view your browsing history.
Tapping and holding a link in your browser, an email, or anywhere else, will provide you with additional options other than just navigating to that link. The same goes for email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, and other linked information.
Tapping and holding on a photo, other media, or static text will allow you to quickly copy that media. This works in most apps.
Tapping and holding an icon on your home screen will allow you to move or delete the app. If you double-tap your home button to bring up the multitasking drawer, you can also use tap and hold to allow you to quickly quit apps that are currently running.
Tapping and holding a location in the maps application will drop a pin on that location. Tapping and holding that pin will allow you to move it, although you can just tap and hold a new location and that pin will move there automatically.
Pressing and holding your home button will activate voice control or Siri, depending on which feature your device supports.
Pressing and holding the power button will allow you to turn your phone off.
Pressing and holding both the power button and home button for several seconds will force-restart your phone. A quick press of each will take a screenshot.
Each and every service we provide is custom tailored to each client’s individual needs.
Internet Marketing is not a one-size-fits-all business. Not every solution will work for every client. We will find the solution that will work for YOU
We focus on Functionality, Design and Maintenance
It’s important that a website works the way it should. We make sure it functions seamlessly in every browser, on every device, from a home computer to a tablet to a iPhone or other mobile device. We scour through all of that code so you don’t have to. What our clients get is a website that looks amazing, is protected from hackers, and it works as intended to deliver results.
Your website should be as unique as your business. During the initial phases of design, our team will work closely with you so we understand your goals and objectives and build a website that achieves them. We’ve consulted across all industries, and we stay up-to-date on the latest trends. The result: websites that are completely custom, modern, attractive and effective.
Unlike traditional hosting, Our solutions are not deployed on a single server. Instead, a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers hosts our client' applications and websites, ensuring greater flexibility, scalability and accessibility.

CEO & founder
Almost as much as the increase in sales that I received with my Google Advertising Campaign, I enjoyed how the folks at Digital Traffic Factory didn’t try to BS me and helped make me understand (as thick as I am) what each thing they were talking about was. I had someone handling my ‘SEO’ for years, and I never knew what was going on. Digital Traffic Factory showed me – in our first meeting – where I could see the SEO ‘stuff’ on my website. Come to find out, the person who I ihad been paying for SEO wasn’t doing a single thing.
Our partnership showed us promising new ways to promote our company. Today we use analytics and more accurate traffic data to help decide our next move. The digital space is an essential tool for retail and positioning ourselves well is critical in an increasingly competitive field."

We know what we're doing when it comes to the web. But like most things on the web, a bit of scepticism is healthy. So that is why we put our money where our mouth is. We don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
We're so confident in our abilities, that once we outline a plan, if we don't hit the metrics, you owe us nothing for our efforts.
