    ICS Tips and Tricks for the Razr

    1. No more task manager? Try this: Long press the HOME icon and icons of all your running apps will pop up. To close an app, slide it to the left. To open an app that you want to re open, just tap on it.
    Yep, multitasking!

    More to come.

    Screenshot

    To take a screenshot press the power and volume down buttons simultaneously. I tried it and it works however, if you have only your homescreen open it does not seem to work.

    App groups vs folders.

    App groups are put together from the app drawer(click the all apps button top/left once you open your app drawer).This can help you organize your app drawer by putting related things in a common location. Once created a shortcut can be sent to a homescreen and the group can be easily accessed. Folders are created by dragging apps on top of each other which are already on a home screen. Both function similarly from the homescreen. On the left is an app group shortcut, on the right is a folder.

    When clicking the App group shortcut you're taken to the app group list in the app drawer.

    When clicking a folder the icon expands to show the apps in the folder and you stay on the homescreen.

    I never saw apps groups in GB, but doesn't mean they weren't available.

    Individual notifications can be cleared from the pull down bar by swiping them off the side of the screen.

    Has anyone figured if there are home screen notifications? You know like little numbers that overlay the apps for unread emails, texts and missed calls? This was shown in some international versions of ICS on moto phones, I would really like if this was an available option.

    I only see them in the notification bar. Nothing on the app icons.

    Of course there's the Easter egg. Open Settings> About Phone> quickly tap Android Version. You get this.

    Looooooong press the little ICS Droid and watch what happens.

    For the native browser an easier way to navigate is available. Open the browser, click the menu hard button, then tap settings. Click labs, then quick controls. With this enable you slide in from the extreme side of the screen and browser function controls appear right around your thumb. You can open new tabs, go to bookmarks page, view open tabs list, etc.
