    If you just swipe your finger from the top of the phone down over the screen on the right hand side of the earpiece, you can bring up the dropdown menu that has the wifi, bluetooth, battery life, etc in it. Up to this point, I've just been tapping on the area that has the battery meter, signal strength etc, but only get the menu to come up on the first tap about 1 out of 3 times. The swipe method is 100% effective.

    Oh well...a very minor "discovery" and not an important one, but I feel accomplished.

    I have made my way from one side of this forum to the other and back again a few times....and until this very moment I was one of those people who poked at the top of the screen 11 times to get the menu to come down.

    Brilliant advice!

    This change occurred in an early update of webOS (I think because so many people complained about problems with poking at the menu). You can also use this swipe on the left side when you are in an app and it usually brings up the preferences menu.

    Too true. Hard to "unlearn" those ingrained habits of old, but swiping always requires less precision. Good one!

    Now if I could actually disable the tap that pulls up the system menu, I'd eliminate the single-most annoying mistap that I always seem to make when doing other things in webOS. It seems that that menu is always popping up at the worst times.

    The interface on this OS just keeps becoming more and more appealing.

    Yes, I remember when it got introduced way back around 1.2.x i believe. I thought it was cool how Palm added it.

    Nice one. Did not know that either. Thanks. A stroke is much more satisfying than a jab. (Another Tip for the front page.)
