    One thing I didn't use to like about Motorola Phones was you could pinch out from a homescreen to get that Helicopter view.
    But recently I noticed that if you slide up from any homescreen starting from the dock tray. It pulls out the Helicopter view. I believe this works for all latest Motorola phones on GB. I first noticed this on the OGAtrix, but thought it was just a nice little bug. But when I got the Atrix 2, it was also there.
    Hope this helps some of you out. Instead of having to click the home button twice.

    No Problem i always hear reviews that you could go into helicopter view on motorola phones, unless you hit the home button twice. This new feature is even faster i think.

    You may be able to change the "DOUBLE TAP HOME" action by going to MENU>SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS.The PHOTON has a DOUBLE TAP HOME setting that gives 8 or so choices.

    Not sure if this is on all MOTOROLA ANDROID phones that have came out in the last year,but,the ATRIX 4G,ATRIX 2,BIONIC,&PHOTON all are similar & share a lot of the same features.
