    That's not your most used shortcuts you see. What you are seeing are applications that are open and still running :-)

    If your familiar with MS Windows it's the equivalent of looking at your Task Manager - very handy.
    Well, I guess that's usually the same thing. heh.

    I heard it wasn't even that, it's more of a 'frequently used applications' shortcut launcher.

    ^ Truth.

    I also figured out if you press-hold the little dots when you're in a new slide, it shows a page previews of each slide, its like a quick jump to the slide you click.If that makes any sense at all)
    NexusOne. :nexusx:

    Turned on my phone this morning to find a notification that an upgrade was available for one of the apps I had installed a few days ago. A couple of key presses later and I had the update downloaded and installed - fantastic !

    Lol you guys are all wrong. It doesn't show open applications, and it doesn't show frequently used applications. It shows the last six applications used.

    Not sure about that - when you hold the home button and select one of the applications that pops up it opens the app at the point where you left it running. If it just showed the last six apps used, or just shortcuts to frequently used apps it would start from that apps 'homepage'. Therefore I understand this feature provides a link to your currently running/open apps - lol

    guy is right. If you have an application you can exit like twidroid open it then exit it. Hold down the home button and it will show the twidroid icon even though the application is closed.

    It basically shows the last 6 apps used.

    Zindol has my back lol, but I would like to add. Some times Android will close apps, the OS does this only when it needs the resources that the app is using to use for an app that is currently open and visible. Has such, it is common practice for apps to save the screen your on and the information when they are closed. It is possible to do this because, when ever Android goes to kill an app it calls onDestroy()

    Well explain how if you open Google Listen or Facebook and use them, then go to your phones homepage, press and hold home - now if you select Google Listen or Facebook it now takes you to where you left those applications running and not their opening screens) ? - Perhaps it's Task Manager and Shortcut List combined ?

    lol - we replied at the same time Guy lol

    You know - I don't really care, I just love my phone and what it does !!!!
