ZOOM: You can zoom in on a page by pinching your fingers together, or flicking out to zoom out

MOBILE FACEBOOK: The mobile version of Facebook looks the same here as with any smartphone – with a truncated list of current status updates
MULTI-APPS: You can run multiple apps (using the card paradigm) and switch between them easy with just a flick of your finger
