Best iOS 5 Shortcuts – Opening to Proper App from Lock Screen


This is one of my favorite new features of iOS 5 (I’m easily amused). But all joking aside, this feature is very handy, especially when you leave your phone for a couple hours and it gets bombarded with texts, twitter updates, calendar notifications, etc. Regardless of what is on the lock screen, you can simply swipe the icon of the notification that you want to see and iOS 5 will take you directly into the proper app, and if necessary, the proper page. Try it out next time you get a notification!
