NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Feel like your smartphone isn't so smart?  If you've expected more from your iPhone the folks at BuzzFeed have just what you need.

Here is BuzzFeed editor Jessica Misener's list of top, underused features on the iPhone equipped with iOS 7:

Track airplanes overhead:  Using the Siri feature you can see what planes are flying overhead.. Start by asking Siri ‘what planes are overhead?’ The voice command feature will show on screen the airline, flight number, altitude and angle the planes overhead are climbing. The information comes from satellites.

Shake to delete: Shake your phone and an 'undo typing' box will appear. If you change your mind after you hit 'undo,' shake your phone again for a 'redo tying' box.

Make your passcode a word: Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. - Turn off the setting that says "Simple Passcode." A screen will appear prompting you to change your passcode, along with a full QWERTY keyboard. The next time you unlock your phone, the keyboard will appear instead of just the number pad.

Timestamps: To view the time a message was sent, touch and drag message bubbles to the left.

Compass: Go to your compass (could be in your settings) swipe left and the level comes up;use it to hang pictures, etc.

We have writers who as their episodes are airing they're talking about what they were thinking about when they wrote and saying lovely things."

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
