Use touch gestures to get around the Home screen, open apps, scroll through lists, and more.
When you want to type on the keyboard, select onscreen items such as application and settings icons, or press onscreen buttons, just tap them with your finger.
Press and hold
To open the available options for an item (for example, a contact or link in a webpage), just press and hold the item.
Swipe or slide
Quickly swipe your finger vertically or horizontally across the screen to go to other Home pages, scroll through documents, and more.
Press and hold your finger with some pressure before you start to drag. While dragging, don't release your finger until you have reached the target position.
Flicking the screen is similar to swiping, except that you need to swipe your finger in light, quicker strokes, such as when moving right and left on the Home screen, or flicking through a contacts or message list.
Press and flick
On the Home screen, you can easily move a widget or icon from one screen to another.
Press and hold the widget or icon with one finger, and flick the screen to the new location with another finger.
Pinch and spread
In some apps, like
Mail, or the web browser, spread your fingers on the screen to zoom in when viewing a picture or text.
Pinch the screen to zoom out of the picture or text.
In some apps that have sorting, like
People, swipe up or down using two fingers to scroll the screen. The screen displays the sorting order, and you can easily scroll to the information you want.
In the Notifications panel, swipe down with two fingers on expandable notifications to see more information like email previews or calendar events.
Swipe up using three fingers to share content such as photos, videos, and music from
HTC Desire SV to your TV or speakers.
