Finger gestures

Finger gestures

Tap When you want to press onscreen buttons or select items onscreen such as application and settings icons, simply tap them with your finger.
Press and hold To open the available options for an item (for example, a contact or link in a web page), simply press and hold the item.
Swipe or slide To swipe or slide means to quickly drag your finger vertically or horizontally across the screen.
Drag Press and hold your finger with some pressure before you start to drag. While dragging, do not release your finger until you have reached the target position.
Flick Flicking the screen is similar to swiping, except that you need to swipe your finger in light, quicker strokes. This finger gesture is always in a vertical direction, such as when flicking the contacts or message list.
Rotate For some screens, you can automatically change the screen orientation from landscape to portrait by turning HTC Status sideways.
Pinch In some apps, like Gallery or the web browser, you can “pinch” the screen using two fingers (for example, thumb and index finger) to zoom in or zoom out when viewing a picture or a web page.
