    This was available in GB, but is good to go through to improve voice command accuracy. Open voice commands and select the gear. There's an adaptation process where you recite a series commands so it will better understand you. There's also a shortcuts section where you can enable/disable what actions voice commands is able to initiate. That would be useful if an unintended app or action is constantly prompted by a common command.

    It got eliminated. Go to apps and look at running apps. Gives same basic information and controls.

    The only thing I have found (or I should say HAVEN'T found) is a way to do bookmarks on a screen as a shortcut. I like the intellicast.com website for animated weather radar for my area. I used to be able to do a shortcut in Dolphin Browser that I could just tap and it would open the web page with my radar. Dolphin has a "bookmarks widget" but it takes up way too much room on a screen, I would prefer the one icon. It's no longer in widgets, and I use Desktop Visualizer too, but it's not an option in there either. Anyone have any suggestions?

    The home button does absolutely nothing for me. Doesn't matter if I short press or long press it, it doesn't do a thing. It's getting very frustrating having to manually back out of all my apps. Any suggestions?

    Do you have a different launcher? I dont have ICS yet....but I tested out some launchers on GB recently and my home button got screwed up one time. If your home button isnt working...something's definitely wrong.

    This was there on Blur with GB...and was of my fav things about the Blur GB update starting with the Droid X1. Nice to see Moto kept it. Nice thread yall got going on here.

    Can't say enough about the ICS update on the Bionic or some of these shortcuts/tricks. Keep 'em coming!

    Open the native browser and go to the bookmarks page. Long press the bookmark you want to set a shortcut for. Select add shortcut to home. Or, select edit bookmark, and tap the field next "add to"(it'll say bookmarks). Select homescreen and click OK.

    HA!! Thanks for that. I had the native browser frozen in Titanium Backup because I use the Dolphin Browser. I defrosted it, and had bookmarks again. However, I use "Desktop Visualizer" for creating custom shortcuts on home screens. I created a shortcut, with the Dolphin icon, and selected that bookmark from the native browser. Then when I tapped to open, it gave me the option of completing the action using the native browser or Dolphin browser, and I tapped 'remember this choice" so now it does it in the Dolphin browser that I like so much better. Awesome! Thank you! :hail:
