How to Control Your IPhone if You have Broken Buttons

Whether you have a phone with broken button or you just want to accomplish some tasks without using the buttons, today is your lucky day. Sometimes my inner geek just gets the best of me and then its off to the races! :-)

So, today here is a sweet little trick to do phone manipulation without the buttons on your iPhone.

The secret here is to use a little trick called AssistiveTouch. What you need to do is go to Settings>General>Accessibility. When you get there, you need to scroll down to where you see AssistiveTouch. Turn the AssistiveTouch function on and a small gray button will appear as an overlay on your screen. Once it is there, you can drag it around to wherever you want it. The cool part is that when you tap it, you get a bunch of options.

It sort of takes the place of your *Home Button* (if you tap the Home Button function) . In short, it basically will replace any function that could be performed with a button previously.

Very cool and pretty handy.
