    Task switcher

    Often we find ourselves bouncing between tasks. Things like copying from a web page and pasting into a document. Is there a task switcher similar to the Xoom's recent tasks button that will keep me from having to constantly relaunch programs?

    Yes. Just hold the home button. A screen will show up with the last 8 apps used.

    No problem. I found it by accident. Since then, I long press when ever something is not doing what I want. You would be surprised what shows up.

    hmm.. this is good and all but, is there an app that overrides the 'long-press home button function' and instead shows the whole list of running apps when you do that and allows you to switch between them? 'Cos i usually run like 10-15 apps at a go. I find it weird that android does not have this inbuilt function as even my old Nokia 5530 had this

    I like Visual Task Switcher - I have it set up to use a long press on the search button. You have to wait a second when the screens first pop up though because it also displays the screen you get to choose Visual Task switcher after the long press. That disappears after a second and the screens rearrange themselves.
