Apple’s extensions in iOS 8 can come in handy, especially when they come in the form of aNote. Whenever you need to point out something on a website or within a photo, simply tap the share button within Safari or Photos and activate the aNote extension. You can then annotate the shot by drawing all over it with a variety of colors, adding shapes, or adding text. Your annotated shots can be saved or shared. It’s remarkably simple, but if you’ve never used an extension within iOS 8 before, aNote comes with a quick set of instructions to help you out.

You’re able to accomplish this seemingly simple task by punching numbers on the pad and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them. You’re limited to the numbers on the pad, so there is quite a bit of strategy involved, especially since you can’t undo entries.
