    Have the Eris. One of the things I liked about Nokias was you could download an app that would let you pull up a task/application switcher from any application by holding down a key.

    the Eris pulls up last six opened apps when you hold down home button, but there should be a way to open one of the various task switcher/kiillers and open apps using a similar method.

    Cant seem to find that in app store. am i missing something?

    Hold the Home key for a few seconds. I too was used to the Nokia way of handling things and was frustrated until I found that.

    Original poster mentioned in his post that he is already aware of holding down the home button, which only displays the last 6 opened items. They are looking for an app which will let you (via keypress) bring up the app tray, of which I personally am not aware.
