Nokia N9 Tips & Tricks

The Nokia N9 is now shipping and many of you will be getting one very soon. The N9 has a brand new OS and UI, so no one will be familiar with the interface at first, nor the little details that Nokia has introduced with the N9. Here are four tips, tricks, and features that are not immediately evident in the N9:

1. Slide Keyboard to hide

If you are done with the keyboard and need to hide it to have more screen space, just slide it down and it will disappear.

2. Save some battery!
You can save some battery in your Nokia N9 by just activating the “Power Saver Mode.” Let’s say you are traveling and you know you won’t be able to charge your N9 anytime soon, just activate the power saving in Settings, set it to “On” or Automatic depending on your needs. You can also change the time when the Power Saving Mode kicks in by sliding the blue bar.

 

3. Quick App Launcher
Lets say you need to take a picture really quick, or call someone, or lookup something. All you have to do is double-tap the screen and slide the unlock wallpaper halfway through and hold. You will see that four icons will appear, you can change these in settings if you want.

 

4.  Sounds and Status bar
It actually took me some days to figure out that the N9 has an Android-style slide down bar. However, don’t try to slide it down, it’s not quite a slide down bar. All you have to do is tap it and it will slide down by itself. You can manage your internet connection and online status as well as your volume and notification volume.
