If you want to end a URL in something other than .com, simply hold down the .com button, and pick a URL end thing.

Step 3: Quick Menu

If you have a lot of apps, and you want to go to the menu with the app store and safari and stuff, simply press the menu button again.

Step 4: Take a Screenshot

To take a screenshot, simply hold down the menu button, and then press the sleep button. After you have done this, go to photos, then go to saved photos, a picture of whatever was on your screen when you took the screenshot will be there! A lot of people don't know that you can do this, I only discovered it by accident.

Step 5: Search Your IPod

To search your iPod, go to the menu, then simply swipe to the left, a search bar will come up, type in what you want to find, tap search and get your results! This is very handy for when you want to find something on your iPod in a hurry.

Step 6: Quick Delete

With the OS 4.0 software you can create folders. Just drag one app ontop of the other and it will create a folder and automatically categorize the apps inside the folder by type.

This will delete it from your "inbox", but you still need to go into the "trash" for that mail account, hit edit and then delete all in order to remove it completely.
