20 Touch Screen Shortcuts for the Storm...

As most of you probably know, the Storm's running a completely new version of the BlackBerry OS: 4.7. That means tons of new touch-screen shortcuts. This article lists more than 20 Storm shortcuts, and I bet there are a bunch more just waiting to be discovered.

Perhaps the coolest one in the article is the ability to search your mail for all messages from a specific contact WITHOUT EVEN CLICKING THE SCREEN. You've heard of one-click searches, but NO CLICK? This also apparently works when you search for music from specific artists.

Anybody know any Storm shortcuts not listed in the article?

Wow, now I know how to move the text cursor. That was one thing that really bothered me.

Great Article.   I was familiar with all of them EXCEPT - the search feature by lightly holding your finger over the name, subject or artist.  Great tip and great article!!

GREAT LINK!!!!!

 

Thanks!

 

I knew about some of them, and I had  accidentally brought UP the keyboard, but hadn't been able to close it.

Shortcuts in the browser application (landscape mode) :
Q add page as bookmark
U show/hide status bar (top bar)
G display "Go To..." page.
Backspace : go to previous page (same as Escape key)
C display Connection Information
T Top of window
B Bottom of window
SPC : scroll one page down
O zoom out

I did not find "zoom in"

I did not find "view link URL"
I did not find "view current page URL"
I did not find "reload"
I did not find "show HTML code"
