Default Applications Drawer

Did anyone else realize that after hitting the up arrow to view applications you can grab the top and slide it down (opposite of the notifications drawer)

Just found that out today, kinda cool

Here's one I just noticed for the first time after having my phone almost two months:
I can hit the menu button when my phone is locked and it unlocks it..don't have to swipe across the screen. Again, no big deal but I'd never noticed it till today!

Sad part is it says so on the locked screen; and I'm one you tend to be critical of not reading what is right before their eyes. The print is awful small though.

Mine doesn't say that? Maybe it's only with certain backgrounds. Mine just has the bar with VW, time, and date, no other text.

haha completely understandable. i didnt notice it until i went to swipe and realized my hands were a little greasy so i stopped...then the little thing popped up


EDIT: on a side not...i am pretty sure since then i've tapped/swiped/long pressed every option conceivably possible. as if i were 'wheres waldo'-ing in braille
