7 Android Tablet Tricks to Remember

Part of the Android Tablets For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Become an Android speed demon. Here's an assortment of handy, time-saving tricks for you to keep in mind while you use, abuse, or excuse your Android tablet:

  • Dictation! You can speak into the tablet as an effective and quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard.

  • Quickly switch between two or more programs by using the Recent Apps icon found at the bottom of the Home screen.

  • You can add icons and widgets to the Home screen pages.

  • An Android tablet can make phone calls, but you must first install the proper app. For traditional phone calls, Skype is a good idea. The Google Hangouts app can be used for video chat.

  • Use the various Search icons to look for things on the tablet, on the Internet, or in a specific app.

  • When downloading updates or new apps, or for faster web browsing, activate the tablet's Wi-Fi.

  • Use Google Now to control the tablet with your voice or search the Internet.
