How to Send Directions From iPhone to iPhone

By Julius Vandersteen

The iPhone is a mobile phone made by Apple. It has a multi-touch screen, and can connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi or a cellular data network, enabling you to visit websites and use email. When you need to tell someone how to get from one place to another, you might be too busy to call and tell her the directions or leave them as a voice mail message. If you and the other person each have an iPhone, you can easily transmit the directions with it by email.
