Thing 2 Mobile Device Tips

After finding the manual I found out that I have an HTC EVO Shift 4G. It isn't the newest phone so I had to search the internet for tips to answer some nagging questions I've had about it.

Can I have two windows up at a time and can I go back and forth between them? Yes! I don't know why it never occurred to me to hit the menu button while I had the browser open, but that was all I had to do to get the option to add a window or to switch windows.

The discovery of the menu button also helped me figure out how to make a web page my home page. I forgot how I did it but just start by hitting the menu button when the browser is open.

Can I add diacritic marks to letters? Yes! This was also so easy I can't believe it's taken me this long to learn how to do it. When typing just hold down the letter you want to adorn for a couple of seconds, choose the option you want from the choices that appear, and voilà, you've got an accented letter.

Thing 2 has been a little humbling.

Thing 1

I found setting up this blog a little frustrating, but that's why I'm taking part in this program. Hopefully by Thing 23 I'll have some knowledge of apps and things will go more smoothly.

I'm blogging from my phone!
