||When you want to type using the keyboard, select items onscreen such as application and settings icons, or press onscreen buttons, 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.
||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.
||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.
||For most screens, you can automatically change the screen orientation from portrait to landscape by turning
HTC Vivid sideways. When entering text, you can turn
HTC Vivid sideways to bring up a bigger keyboard.
||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.
||In some apps that have sorting, like
People, you can use two fingers to scroll the screen. The screen displays the sorting order, and you can easily scroll to the information you want.
