To tie in with our quick tip from yesterday I was curious to know just how OS6 users access Universal Search. I've swapped methods more than a few times, but now I seem to stick to the shortcut key. Out of the box on OS6 devices you can access Universal Search just by typing on the keyboard, but as I found out a few weeks into my OS6 experience, you can also turn off Universal Search from the homescreen (Options > Display > Home Screen Preferences) in favor of application shortcuts. I actually prefer to have my homsecreen keyboard shortcuts instead of Universal Search and all I have to do is hit "S" to start searching.
So what do you do? Do you have your homescreen set to Universal Search or do you use application shortcuts? Cast your vote in the poll and leave a comment below! Thanks MrCippy!
