As an example, this neat little tip works just as well on your Nokia Lumia 900 high-end smartphone. If you’re looking to switch between one app and another you can do this easily and trouble free. For example, maybe you’re playing a game or working on a document and suddenly you remember you need to send an email. Simply open you’re email client as normal and send your message.

Now, you don’t need to restart your game or document, after all that would lose your place. No, all you need to do is press the left-hand button at the foot of the Nokia Lumia 610 screen and hold it down.

After a couple of seconds the last six apps or websites you’ve had open will appear. Simply swipe to find the app you want and tap to open. It’s as simple as that!

The Nokia Lumia 610 really is a trouble free and easy smartphone to use, making it perfect for the first-time smartphone user!
