Access Apps While on a Call on the Samsung Galaxy 6

Part of Samsung Galaxy S6 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Sometimes during the middle of a call you need to access information that exists on your Galaxy S6. For example, let’s say you are talking to a friend when she needs a telephone number of a mutual friend. That is easy enough. When the call is in full-screen mode, there are a number of icons you can tap. When you need to access information stored in your Contacts database, you simply swipe the screen to the left and tap the Contacts icon. This opens the Contacts app, revealing all the contact information you have.

If, instead of contact, your friend Jim insists that there is no indication that Humpty Dumpty was an egg. (We all have friends like Jim.) “Balderdash,” you exclaim. You swipe left and tap the Internet icon only to find that Jim was, in fact, correct. It seems that generations of nursery rhyme illustrators have been copying ideas from each other.

In addition to Contacts or the Internet, you can also quickly get to your e-mail, texts, calendar, or a memo pad by swiping left to access your apps.
