Android Market – Google Search – Multi Tasking Tips – Droid Snack

In order to switch quickly from
app to app on your Droid phone, or what is called “Multi Tasking” you can use the Recent Apps screen When you long press on your Home
key (that’s on the very bottom), you see a pop-up screen that shows you the apps or widgets
you have been recently using called the “Recent” screen. In the past, it only showed 6 items, now it
shows the last 8. Press on an app or widget displayed here to quickly jump from one to the other.
No need to return to the home screen and hunt for an app or widget, just long press the
home key and jump to the next one right here. Multi-tasking at its best! Google Search Changes The Google Search Widget now lets
you decide where you want your search to happen. Press on the Google “G” and you
can search ALL locations, search on the Web, search through Apps that are on your phone — or hit the right
arrow up top to go to the market, and search through all the contacts on your phone the normal way – or press
this arrow up top here and see your contacts on your phone in a different way. Android Market The big change for non phone-geeks
in the Market is the fact that you can tell your apps to Automatically Update That way they don’t keep telling you
that there is an update, please go get it
— it just updates for you, automatically. In the past you had an update notification
show up in the top notification bar, you chose it and then you could see the apps
that needed updating – you had to do this update thing one app at a time. Now you can choose “Update All”
or better yet, select an individual app, and then select
“Allow Automatic Updating” up top. The last step is to press “update”
on the bottom and it will bug you no more! That app will
just automatically update when it needs to. For more helpful tips tricks and video tutorials
