Use touch gestures to get around the Home screen, open apps, scroll through lists, and more.
Tap the screen with your finger when you want to select onscreen items such as application and settings icons, or press onscreen buttons.
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 horizontally across the screen to go to other Home screen panels. Swipe vertically to scroll through a list, document, 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.
