We all know about the "slide to unlock" slider on the lock screen of iOS devices, but do you know about "slide to view"?
So, a notification appears on the lock screen of your device for, let's say, Words With Friends (that's my most common alert). Instead of swiping across "slide to unlock" at the bottom of the screen, swipe across the notification itself. This tells your device that you not only want to unlock it, but also want to go straight to the app that produced the alert.
If you know this tip already, the chances are you stopped reading a while back with a disdainful tut. For the rest of you, enjoy this handy little shortcut!
