    If you press and hold the home button it will bring up the last 6 apps used. If you knew great if you did not then this might help. I found it to be very useful. Might even like an option to pin the apps there that I use the most. Or use it like sense ui and have the homescreens show up there. hint hint

    That has always been the Android answer to "task management," not quite equivalent to Windows "Alt-Tab" but useful to switch between open program never the less. There are a few third part apps that attempt to enhance task switching but for me this has always worked the best. It would be nice if it also showed which of the 6 apps are currently active.

    If you didn't know that, I highly recommend reading the Tip and Tricks category. A lot of fun, neat tricks to be found.

    It amazes me how many times I run into people that have been using Windows for years and have no knowledge of basic Windows shortcuts. I see then struggling to use menus to do simple cuting and pasting.

    I work in technical support. I don't expect anything near competency from end users.
