    We talked about it briefly when MM came out in our model forum.
    Sajo thought it was neat, I thought it was a gimmick.
    Annnd... Today I think it's even lamer then I first thought. LOL
    What about you? Love it? Hate it? Don't know cuz you never use it?
    It could be just me. If you like it and use it a lot, let's hear from you.

    Do you mean where you press and hold the home button? If so, I never use it and actually find it annoying as it pops up unexpectedly. Tell me more.

    So here's the screen that I "on tapped"

    And this is what it gives me. The 4th option is directions to that address.

    A doctor? Truck ad?

    I don't use it often, but still do find it useful when I do use it. I think it really depends what's on the screen before you On Tap it.

    I don't tap on forums. It's very handy on websites.

    It's like a quick copy & paste with one hold of a button.... Search this screen and show me the useful information I need. That's how I used it.

    I used it fairly regularly on my 6p. Since its still on its way back to me, the Note 4 doesn't have the ability.
