    Smile Nexus One Tips

    Some Cool Tips and Tricks (some documented, some not)
    * Press and hold the search button (the magnifying glass in the lower right corner) to activate voice search. If you want to call someone, say "call" and the person's name.
    * Touch and hold the dots on the bottom left and right of your homescreen to see all five homescreens at a glance. Tap on a screen to jump there.
    * Your photo gallery can automatically synch with your Picasa web album. Go to settings, select accounts, then select your gmail account and click on sync Picasa web albums. Now when you go to the photo gallery you'll see your Picasa album. Also, if you take a picture you like with the phone, it's easy to share it via email or upload it to Picasa or Facebook. Just click on the menu button and select share.
    * Get minute-by-minute weather forecasts with the Weather widget. Launch the weather app and click the "information (i)" button in the top right hand corner. Drag your finger left-and-right across the temperature and humidity graph to see the weather forecast updated minute-by-minute.
    * Touch a contact's image or status bubble and you'll get what's called the Quick Contacts menu. From there you can choose how you'd like to interact with that person, no matter what application you're currently using.
    * Quickly access recently used applications by touching and holding the Home button.
    * Dictate into any text field by tapping on the compose box and then on the microphone icon next to the space bar. This brings up the "voice keyboard", which is available anywhere you want to enter text such as searching or composing an email or text.
    * Navigate is a feature within Maps that uses your phone's GPS capability to direct you to your destination. Open maps, search for your destination, tap on it, and select navigate. The app will tell you step-by-step directions to get there.
    * Navigate also works with voice search right from the home screen. Hold down the search button until it invites you to speak now. Then say "navigate to ..." and your destination. This also works with category search: try "navigate to pizza."
    * While on Maps, zoom in or zoom out with our new pinch-to-zoom functionality. You can also pinch-to-zoom in the browser and when viewing photos in the Gallery.:nexusx:

    You'll have to complete a 30 question multiple choice test Monday morning. And a short essay.
