I’ve recently updated the iPhone from iOS 5 to 6.0.1 having waited oh so patiently for a native Google Maps to appear. There are a few nice features in the update, but one I recommend all photographers in my position make full use of. Having a very busy email inbox with constant stream of casting calls, forum and product updates from multiple vendors, the VIP feature has been brilliant for making me quickly aware of emails from people that I’m waiting to hear from.

And it’s nice when it’s good news, like the message on the left! Not that the accountant confirming receipt of VAT return data is bad news, but I’m sure you know what I mean 😉 People I’m doing shoots or edits for are now being marked as the VIPs they are so I can get back to them sooner, not have their email become the proverbial needle in a haystack.
