    Pressing the "Home" button for 2 or more seconds gives you a list of previously used apps, not a list of currently running apps. Just wanted to clarify that.

    One cool thing i found is that there is a Ctrl+Alt+Delete on our DROID's lol. If you press up arrow+alt+del on your hard keyboard your DROID will shutdown and restart itself. My brother thought that was pretty sweet.

    The car dock is pretty darn sick IMO. I showed it to one of my coworkers a couple of days ago and hes like "WOW there are no wires coming out of it but it still knows that you are in a car and switches to "car mode"!!" lol. I then explained to him about how the magnet in the back of the phone allows it to do that. So then hes like "wow these motorola ppl are smart".

    My co worker was also wowed by the fact that i can get OS updates over the air instead of having to plug the phone into a computer to do it (he has an iphone).

    oh and i forgot to mention the qr code reader. I find a page online on my computer than i want to go to on my DROID, so i click on the QR code creator on my computer (there is a plugin for it if you have google chrome or firefox) and scan the code with barcode reader on my DROID.

    This worked well when i wanted to show my cousin a youtube video but his computer had no speakers at the time, so i did the steps above and we had the vid loaded up and playing on my DROID in seconds..he was amazed

    My cool trick isn't too much of a trick, but I use sweeter home 2, so my screens are all clean until you push hidden buttons that light them up with widgets and apps

    @Malvado,

    I can't link you to ROMs, but you can easily search for it via Google. Heck, I even think the ROM app descriptions mention different sites that host ROMs. Good luck!

    A lot of these cool tricks posters use to impress other people. I've had a Droid since early November 2009. It continues to impress me. Almost every day I can show off a new feature on the phone. We start to take things for granted. How many other phones can go and grab applications from another maker's phone that you'd like to have? That is a cool trick. You don't have to be root your phone to do so either.

    We have a local theatre that shows movies popular a year or more ago (only $2.50 tickets). I went to see Titanic again - and of course, just as they hit the iceberg, I set my Droid App "MotoTorch" to send out its Morse Code signal for SOS with the LED light. Laid it on the armrest of my seat and let it go for about ten minutes. Cool factor? Maybe - but I've never had so much popcorn thrown at me ever!:icon_ banana: But afterward I did get a lot of oohs and ahhs by people coming over to ask how I did that! In the darkened theatre it really lit up awesome! Most thought it was a gimick set up by the theatre! :) mikey

    I just made a couple of neat discoveries. I up-graded from the BB Storm to the Droid. I am still using the Storm ear buds with the inline mic.
    The first discovery was I could use the Storm ear buds with the inline mic.
    The second discovery was when I press the answer button on the mike to answer a call, it mutes the phone and turn on the phone. But, if I press the on general principal, it turns the music app on and off. This is great when I interact with anyone while listening to the music app with the ear buds.

    :rofl3: THAT'S awesome!!!! course I have to chastise you at least a little for paying (even $2.50) to see that movie, lol. But if you're intent was to do the SOS trick the whole time I'll forgive you (just this once, lol).

    Call me a romantic - but I liked the movie for the romance only! ;) Of course I own the DVD, but the big screen "does" it for me.. For true value I prefer the version with George C. Scott! :)

    Anyway, this was a group thing - we took a bunch of kids kids to see it - I didn't even think of the SOS until getting close to that scene, then it just jumped into my head. The kids loved it of course - they all wanted to play games with the light... :) mike
