A digital master class designed to train you into an iOS god.

Just yesterday, it was revealed 56 per cent of women find tech-savvy men sexy, though they like to see actions speak louder than words.

This, of course, suggests:
A. Women are hugely technical and would like men to keep up

B. Women would like men to take the lead

Well, regardless of gender, ME has chosen Tips & Tricks as today's App Of The Day, just in case you've ever had to fib about your mobile engineering prowess.

Available as two apps, one for iPhone and one for iPad, Tip & Tricks is designed to act as an iOS book of spells, plying users with knowledge on how to navigate their Apple gadgets with shortcuts and secret passages that they may not know about.

Apple sold 47.8m iPhones and 22.8m iPads in Q4, and Tips & Tricks aims to teach newbies and experts alike how they can use their device to its full potential.

Mark Errett, head researcher and writer of Tips & Tricks, said: "The app skips the obvious and distills information that most iPhone and iPad owners don't know about into an easy-to-read app. I truly believe that everyone with an iPhone or iPad should read our guide.”
