Tips and Tricks #1

I’ll start putting together Tips and Tricks posts based on questions I see on the blog, Twitter and elsewhere.

Want to easily jump to one of the recent apps you have used?

Hold down the “Home” key until a modal window opens up in front of your current app/screen.  It will show you the last 6 apps where you can then click and jump right to it.  This is great for jumping between apps at greater speed than exiting and using the desktop or app drawer.  This adds icing onto the ability to multi-task on the phone since it can have many apps running at once.
