    I just got the GB OTA, and first thing I noticed was the lost of the ability to quickly navigate / switch between any home screen. In Froyo, as soon as you swipe to a different screen, there was 7 convenient dots that appear at the bottom corresponding to each of the 7 home screenshots, and I can press a dot to go to that screen immediately, without having to swipe all the way to that screen.

    Is it possible to get this functionality back in gingerbread?

    The new motoblur adopted the sense setup from htc, so hit the home button twice and all of your screens will show up

    Then just select the screen you desire

    Thanks for the tip! And I also discovered myself that you can "wipe up" from the bottom of the screen to bring it up too. Still not as fast as Froyo's method, but I guess it'll do.

    Is there any collection of such tips and tricks I can browse? I can't seem to find these sort-of hidden features documented anywhere.
