>>Android allows devices to run several applications
simultaneously, switch between them, and at the same time, notify you when something new
occurs in one of them. Let’s see an example of this on the world’s first Android phone,
the T-Mobile G1. When browsing interesting photos, a friend pings me on Yahoo Messenger.
A notification appears on the status bar. I can click right on it to switch to the IM
and chat with my friend, letting him know that I’ve almost found the perfect photo.
To switch between any of the applications that are running on the Android, simply long
press the device’s “Home” button. You can have several applications running simultaneously
in the background. I’m currently using a few Apps my self: IM, the Browser, Settings, Contacts,
and Music. Let’s return to the browser. Say, I found some interesting pictures, using
“Long Press,” I can easily share the pics with my friend. On the Menu, click, “Go
to URL,” to see the current location. Then, simply long press the URL you’d like to
copy and select “Copy.” Then, switch back to IM by long pressing the “Home” button,
and paste the copied URL right into the IM conversation. The Seamus Integration between
your apps on Android makes multi-tasking effortless.
