The Art Of Double Tapping Your Iphone Screen: The Iphone's Best Trick

Finally, you have the time to sit back, relax and watch a movie on your iPhone. But you noticed that the screen is showing a letterbox image. This is when there are two black lines under and above the picture, which gives you a wider view. You want to watch the movie in full screen mode so you played around and you finally figured out on how to view it in full screen but it took you a while. You could have saved your time, if only you knew the art of double tapping your iPhone screen – the iPhone's best trick!

You can easily view the movie in full screen version by simply double tapping the screen. However, the full screen version may cut off the words if you're watching a movie with subtitle. To turn your screen back to letterbox view, just double tap your iPhone screen again.
Yes, the iPhone's user interface is definitely one of the best and most leading edge features of the iPhone. Nothing compares to the amazing user experience that the Apple iPhone can give. When the Apple iPhone arrived without the handy stylus or a hard keyboard, many were bothered... but not until they have uncovered one of the iPhone's best tricks, the art of double tapping your iPhone screen.

Although getting familiar with the iPhone's cool applications and great features can be easy as 1-2-3, many people still have missed the trick because they have not taken the time to learn the secrets of their iPhone. To help you with this issue, here's the trick.

Generally, double tapping means zooming into whatever you tapped on your iPhone screen. If you are viewing pictures, video, web page, or email the double tap will zoom in. To zoom back out, just double tap again. If you are viewing the map then the double tap will keep zooming in to a more and more detailed view. And a two-fingered double tap will zoom back out. You can also magnify an image by just double tapping it.

For an instance, you want to have a larger view of a picture on a web page. The picture can be magnified two times its default size by just double tapping it. And double tap again to return the picture to its size.

The Double Tap is an extension of the single tap. You may think that to double tap a single item on your iPhone screen will rarely be needed, because every icon and link on the interface seems to react with a simple one-tap motion. However, interfaces like in Photos, Video, Movies and Maps do react to double-tapping differently than if you were to only tap the screen once.
