Blind Abilities adds to their iPhone101 Series with this brief and fast paced trip through the iOS Messages app. With this visit Pete Lane reviews how to send iMessages with special screen effects. with a minor change to your ”send” gesture, from a simple double tap to a double tap and hold. You can add animated visual and audio effects to a text message, adding some entertainment and fun to an otherwise drab piece of text
Pete describes how to generate a message with either full screen effects, of which there are eight available, or bubble effects which are a little less elaborate, but possess some flair as well. he also shows us how to add visual graphic images when replying to an incoming iMessage via use of the react button in the messages app. all of these effects are simple to generate, but they can add so much to your text communications.
Check out this quick romp through the messages app as Pete typically enlists the use of his own sound effects, music and humor to make these demonstrations more enjoyable! He also takes some liberties with his presentation to ensure we all hear the full audio sounds of each effect by eliminating the Voiceover description of the visual experience, showing us both the real iPhone effect as well as the stripped-down audio version only.
All you need to do is set aside less than 10 minutes of your valuable time and become reacquainted with the special effects features in your native Apple messages app. You won’t regret it!
