    Having the Galaxy Nexus I was already in tune with ICS. I will post a few neat little tricks. But discovery is half the fun.



    • When you click the recent apps (multitask) button you can just swipe the apps you don't want in the list away. Just drag them to the left or right
    • When you open your notifications you can also swipe away unwanted notifications
    • Create a folder on your desktop by dragging an app onto another app. You can name the folder by clicking the folder icon and then on the words "unamed folder"
    • If you go to settings>Asus customized settings you can have the old Honeycomb style notification panel without the toggles
    • You can adjust system font size by going to settings>display>font size
    • You can get a screen overlay that shows current cpu usage by going to settings>developer options and check show cpu usage


    Now have fun finding more of your own.

    Is there a way to put a .htm or PDF file on the Prime desktop? I have a file with over a hundred user name and passwords for websites. I generated the file from Roboform, a program that inserts your logon info on Windows systems. I have the file in both .htm and PDF formats in Dropbox. It's a pain every time I need to look up logon information to scroll through all of the many files in my Dropbox. It would be much easier and faster if I could just put the file on my Prime's desktop. Thanks.

    You can put a shortcut to the file on your desktop with ES File Explorer from the Market

    Two things I've found;
    1. Video codecs are improved - mynet works with all my movies on my dlna server. Seems faster too.
    2 A task widget with a one click clean button - seems interesting.

    To use Google Voice Typing

    Go to Settings> language & inputs>Google voice input and check it

    When in any app with text input, like composing an email.
    Tap the screen to bring up the keyboard,
    Then there is a small keyboard icon on the, center/right hand side of the notification bar,
    Tap that and choose, Google Voice Typing.

    I will come in from my self imposed lurking exile to add this contribution to this tread, In the stock browser or ics browser+ you now have gestures, back and forward.
    Go into the setting menu and at the bottom of the list you will see the gestures options, set them to your liking and enjoy. find them a little unresponsive at times but I Ike them despite this and hope they will improve with future updates.

    My mistake I thought the gestures feature was part of the new stock ics browser and ics browser+ but they are only included on ics browser+, the stock browser replacement found on the market. Sorry for any confusion.

    Just one of the things that make ics browser+ better than stock!

    I found a ton of information on ICS by downloading the PDF manual for the Verizon Nexus Cell phone.

    Anyone know if there are any old HoneComb apps you should watch out for, that might cause instability and reboots?

    Thank you very much for your reply. I found a way to do it by uploading the .htm file to a website I have and made a link to it that I bookmarked to my Prime's desktop. I'm still going to check into that file you suggested. It may still come in handy.
