Sometimes, messages from social media can appear out of order, or have missing or extra text. While this might not seem like a big deal, it can cause a lot of frustration if you’re not used to it. Luckily, there’s an easy fix for this problem called “Timestamps”. Here’s how to get your Awewber messages to show correctly on an iPhone.
Change The Way You Receive Messages
When you first setup your Awewber account, you’ll be asked to enter a phone number where you can be reached. On the Apple iPhone, this is usually done via the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. Alternatively, you can use your PIN or passcode to accomplish the same thing. Either way, this is where you should change the way you receive messages. To do so, go to your Account Settings and either choose the “Notifications” option or the more specific “Alerts & Notifications” option. From here, you have the option of choosing which type of notifications you want to receive – including whether you want to be alerted or informed of new messages.
The first step is to confirm that your account is set up correctly by checking your email. You’ll then see a verification link, which you need to click on to continue. Finally, scroll to the very bottom of the notifications settings page and you’ll see a checkbox next to “Show the original message”. Checking this box will cause all of your Awewber notifications to adhere to the standards of the original messages. While this might not seem like a big deal, it can avoid a ton of frustration when you’re receiving messages from multiple users and need to keep track of what was said in which thread.
Use Touch ID To Reply To Messages
The easiest way to reply to a message on an iPhone is to simply touch the message and choose “Reply” from the options that appear. You can also long-tap on a message to bring up a menu with other options such as “Delete” or “Forward”. If you select “Reply” from this menu, your phone will attempt to deliver your message immediately. If you wait a moment or two, it will show you a list of other messages to choose from.
The downside to this approach is that you have to manually type a response. Even if you use an AI-powered texting app like Twilio’s TextExpander or Google’s Swiftkey, you’ll still need to actively engage with the device to make it work for you.
Organize Your Messages Into Folders
Whether you use folders in your email or your local file system, you can bring the same principle to your tweets and your Facebook posts. Create a folder on your phone for every topic you’re following on Twitter and every friend or family member you’ve followed on Facebook. This way, you can keep all of your messages organized and easily accessible. Some people even keep their tweets and Facebook posts in a physical folder next to their device’s display so they can always find the complete archive of a particular topic or event.
This approach has a couple of advantages. For one, you won’t have any unwanted messages clutter up your notifications page. Also, if you have a lot of messages stored in your folders, it’s easy to filter them by using search bars or auto-complete fields on your phone’s various apps. For example, if you have a folder named “Work”, you can easily search all of your work-related tweets by entering “work” into the search bar on Twitter.com.
While this might not seem like a big deal, it can help make your Twitter experience more pleasant. When you start using a service like Awewber, you’ll see how annoying it can be when your notifications constantly clutter up your phone’s display. Having all of your messages in neat, labeled folders makes it much easier to keep track of everything.
Always Check For Delivery & Read Messages While They’re Timed
When you receive a new message, your phone will try to tell you that it has arrived by vibrating and blinking the LED display on the front of your device. Normally, this is a good thing. However, if you’re not mindful about checking your device’s display throughout the day, you could easily miss notifications for important messages.
To read your messages as soon as they arrive, set your iPhone’s clock to the correct timezone and turn on “Do Not Disturb” mode. This will help stop your phone from going off every few minutes, which can lead to missed notifications. Ensure that your phone’s Do Not Disturb feature is set to “Manual” rather than “Automatically Off” so you can still receive calls and texts from people if needed. This is also where you should look to set a good time for you to check for messages – such as before you go to sleep or after you wake up.
This simple approach will help ensure that you receive all of the messages you’re supposed to receive without any distractions or mishaps. Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of extra work to ensure that all of your important messages are treated with the care they deserve.
