It has just come to my attention that Swype has released a new Beta version of their fantastic keyboard, and THIS time, the installation on my Galaxy S3 went ahead without a problem. If you previously used one of the options we gave you, you'll need to uninstall Swype from your S3 first and then go to download the new installer from the Swype website. There is something smoother about this version, and the trail has been given an extra fading gradient sort of animation.
Holding down the home button brings up the Recent Apps list, which is kinda like a fancier task manager. If want an icon for your home screen that will take you to the Recent Apps list, look no further. VirtualKeys.apk available here will do it for you. Simply install it and add it as a widget or shortcut to your homescreen. When prompted, select the Recents List option and you're done.
There is a 'Quick control' menu available in the Galaxy S3's browser which makes some of menu options extra easy to access. It is another one of Samsung's very intuitive new features. To activate it, open the browser, tap the menu button, go to Settings > Labs and check the Quick controls box. To use it just tap the edge of the screen with your thumb, or slide your thumb into the screen (just a little bit) from either edge. In order form top to bottom, the quick control menu will let you open a new window, switch to an existing window, go to navigation bar address field, access bookmarks, and access the browser menu.
The recently announced Android Jelly Bean will come with Sound Search, which is effectively an Google version of Sound Hound or Shazam. Thanks to the folks over at XDA-Developers, you can now snag a little bit of Jelly Bean for your Galaxy S3. In fact it'll probably work on a handful of ICS devices. Oh, AND you don't even have to root your phone first. Bam! Get Google Sound Search here.
