iOS Tip – Quickly Share Screenshots

When you take a screenshot on iOS, it now presents a little preview in the bottom left corner of the screen. Most people know that If you tap the preview, then the edit screen will appear and you can markup the screenshot.

What many don’t know is if you would like to share the screenshot right away you can tap and hold the preview image, and it will bring up the share sheet.

Additionally, if you would like to save the screenshot to your camera roll without any edits, you can swipe the preview to the left side of the screen, and it will disappear and be saved to your Photos.

Quickly Go Back to the Home Screen in OmniFocus For iOS

This is quite the hidden feature and am glad that it exists:

If you long press on the back button it takes you back to the OmniFocus home screen.

This is a game changer for me as I would often get frustrated because I would be deep into OmniFocus and have to tap the back button 4 or 5 times to get back to the home screen.
