I'm creating some training material and I have a mental block. I'm just looking for more words to use instead of Tips and Tricks...those get old. :) Like "Learn the Latest Tips and Tricks on your iPhone". I'm training on Microsoft applications and trying to think outside the box.

    Could you provide some context or examples of how it will be used? I'm thinking of best practices, knowledge base, or pitfalls to avoid – 0xFEE1DEAD Nov 18 '16 at 20:50

If you're after something reasonably formal where the tips are not trivial in length, then I would suggest perhaps "Useful techniques". This seems to be reasonably commonly used (see this Google query: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=useful+techniques for the sorts of examples; there are 238 mil results)

"Handy" adds a bit more of a friendly and informal to nature to it.

Or if you don't think it is too blunt for your use-case, then "Advice"
