Gingerbread missing "nav bar"?
Just got GB today. Meh. It's a lot like magazines changing layouts and fonts and colors every few years simply for a change. Different look but mostly the same which to me makes it worse for a time because I have to get used to it again even though most of the changes are minor. Still different enough so I have to *think* about how to do things I've been doing for months without thinking!
One thing missing is the "nav bar" (when you swipe between home screens or simply tap the screen, the nav bar pops up from the bottom so you can swipe/tap then hit the far left or right buttons to snap to the far screens or any one in the middle quickly) which I can't find.
So where is it?
When I'm on the far right (games) and want to quickly snap to the far left (social networking widgets) I now have to swipe swipe swipe swipe swipe swipe to get there. OR hit the home hard button and swipe swipe swipe. Either way is WAY slower than a quick tap to bring up the nav bar and one tap to select the screen I want.
Am I just missing something or what? How could they remove such a simple quick selection mechanism like that?
Any help is appreciated.
