iOS 5 Battery Improvement Advice

If you're like me then you enthusiastically updated to iOS 5 the second it came out and then happily headed into work once the upgrade, which felt like it took days, was completed. Also if you're like me you have an iPhone charging cable everywhere you go, with good reason. But this time you may have found that your iPhone spent much more time dangling off the charging cable than usual. If so then here's a tip to get some of that performance back: remove weather and stock from notifications.

1. Tap on Settings
2. Tap on Notifications
3. Tap Edit in the top right
4. Drag Weather and Stocks out of the notification centre list by tapping and holding on the three bars on the right side of the weather and stock row and dragging it into the Not In Notification Centre list which is towards the bottom of the screen.
5. Once both are out of the list tap Done in the top right

I've seen a massive improvement in battery life and performance since doing this so it may be worth trying if you are having battery issues.

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.

Flickr For iOS: Could Not Communicate With Server Fix

I've seen multiple reports on Google from people trying to login to Flickr through iOS 7 Settings and receiving the 'Could not communicate with server' login failure. I changed phones last week and received the same error message this morning. The fix that worked for me is:1. Go to Flickr through a desktop browser.  2. Go to the your profile image in the top right and click Settings. 3. In Your Account select the Sharing & Extending tab. 4. Revoke the iOS related Account Links. 5. Login again on your iPhone through Settings and you should now have access.
I hope this helps.
