Smith’s Picks by Joel Smith

Chai Lan (Northpark Plaza, 3951 Irvine Blvd)

Chai Lan is an authentic Chinese restaurant located in the northern part of Irvine in the Northpark Plaza off Culver and Irvine Blvd. Altough it is technically a Chinese restaurant, their dishes are Korean influenced. I have actually only ordered takeout from Chai Lan but they have plenty of tables to accomodate you without having a long wait. I highly recommend the Jjajangmyeon korean noodles and dumplings.

Chai Lan is open daily from 11am-10pm.  For more information, check them by clicking here.


Weekend iPhone Tip by Jake Jacobs

Rename app folder with 3D Touch

One of the things you can do with 3D Touch is quickly rename an app folder on your Home screen. Usually, you have to open a folder, tap and hold the title, and then type in your new app folder name. But you can simply 3D Touch the app folder icon, tap Rename, and enter the new name.

  • From Home screen, 3D Touch an app folder.
  • Tap Rename.
  • Enter the new name for your app folder.

3D Touch to app switcher

On 3D Touch equipped devices, firmly press the very left edge of the screen to invoke the app switcher.

  • Press gently (called “peek”) and swipe right to return to the most recently used app.
  • Press harder (called “poke”) to open the app switcher (the same result as if you had double clicked the Home button).

As a reminder, once the app switcher is opened you can open any previously run apps or force-close an app that is overly consuming resources or behaving poorly. Swipe up to force-close an app.
