    How to switch between running apps

    Hi,
    I have a Nexus S & this is my 1st Android fone, infact my 1st smart fone.
    Does anyone know know how to switch between running apps?
    My fellow Ifone friend just holds the button on the botton & the running apps list appears

    Thanx & a Merry Xmas to all - Rob

    Try a long press on the home button. Should bring up a menu of recent apps.

    Try Visual Task Switcher in the market. There is a free one and a paid one.

    Those are the running apps.
    If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome.

    I think there is no actually such thing as running apps... at least not for all of them... for example I've noticed that some games and applications start over if I press home button, and then try to get back to the game/app (no matter whether I do that via recent apps menu or just from the apps list). I guess this is because android kills apps over time (except the ones that use some method that prevents android from automatic killing them, for exampe skype)
