Here are a few features available on Android devices that you may not know about.

  • Multitasking Between Apps - You can easily switch back and forth between commonly used apps by holding down your phone's Home button. Pressing down on the Home button causes a window to pop up that contains all of your recently used apps.
  • Quick Access to Special Characters - There is more than one way to add in special characters, such as commas or dashes to whatever you are typing. You can do this quickly by tapping and holding down on the Period key on your keyboard which causes a box to pop up with the characters most often used.
  • Voice-to-Text Punctuation - You can use the voice-to-text feature to add punctuation into your notes right along with the text. Punctuation marks, such as periods and commas, will instantly appear in your sentence just by speaking those words into the microphone.
