Awesome WP7 Tips&Tricks
I just wanted to post a couple of helpful tips&tricks for those who are new to the wp7 os.
1. Using the Windows Phone 7 voice controls
Press and hold the Windows key at the bottom of your screen and you can start talking to your phone. Try saying “Open Calendar”, to see what we mean.
2. Adding apps to the Start screen
When you are in the long applications list on your phone pressing on an icon and holding brings up a contextual menu that gives you a series of options, one of which is “pin to start”. Press on this option and the app will be shown on the Start screen.
3. Add people to the start page
No it’s not just about adding apps to the start page, but people too. Find them in your contacts book, click on the “pin” icon, and they’ll be added to your Start page so you can speed dial them whenever you need.
4. Moving your tiles around
