When I first got my iPhone (and then my iPad), I learned about the ‘search’ feature, and thought it was extremely silly and unnecessary. After all, I thought, all you have to do is just glance over your apps and touch the one you want to open. How hard is that?
Well, fast forward several years, and my devices are now LOADED with apps, folders full of apps and pages full of folders. I’ll admit that I’ve used the search feature many times to find a particular app that was hiding deep in some folder.
(if you need a refresher on how to search your device, just click here.)
But now I’ve found an even easier way to open an app that I can’t find……
I just ask Siri to do it! Easy, breezy.
Just ask her: “Open ‘name of app‘”. The device will close the black Siri screen, briefly flash a page of apps, and then open the particular app that you asked for. Like magic. 🙂
Ask Siri to “Open Pandora” or “Open Words with Friends” or whatever other app you’d like to try.
