    Nicely done video by Droid-Life. 25 tricks and tips in under 10 mins. Even though I've had the Droid since day 1, there are a couple tips they had that I never knew you could do!

    hmm, may check it out when i get home. i bet it is all pretty standard, or joe (aka messenger13) has told us most of it, but it still may be good to watch, learn a bit.

    I learned ... umm ... well ... OK, nothing. :eek: But you guys knew that, right? LOL But I have to say that is a really great job of recording 25 tips in under 10 minutes. And the guy actually sounds like he has an IQ above a primate. Impressive! Bravo Droid-Life!

    Just the Beautiful Home Widgets clock, with a different skin. They have about a million now.

    Where do I send the check again?

    I see that for the $, you also get a "warm and fuzzy feeling".
    When I read Messenger's posts, I get that for free.
    Would I be able to handle a double dose? :p

    ok, back to the thread -- didn't know about holding down the camera key to launch the camera. Intuitively, I had tried it before with no luck, wondering if it would work. I must have been releasing a nanosecond too early. Tried it again with conviction and poof -- :eek: camera! Yee-ha!

    It really is the little things in life... :rolleyes:

    Same here. I also didn't know that holding down the search button a little longer also goes right to voice search. I use that a lot to search faster than the wife on her PC and it ticks her off to no end when I have the answer first :D

    This video inspired me to go looking for other things that aren't obvious, and I found that by holding the home button, a little window comes up and shows you the last 6 apps you used. Some of you probably knew that, but I don't think I've ever seen it mentioned anywhere. So, if you didn't know it, enjoy the new info. If you did, well, move along, nothing to see here. :D

    I'm seeing a trend here. It's almost like long-pressing is the key that opens many doors. ;)
