Android 5.0 tip: Use two fingers for fast access to settings

Swiping a finger down from the top of your display in Android 5.0 to get at your unlocked device’s settings is typically a two-stop process: The first pull brings down your notifications while a second pull shows icons for settings. Here’s a handy little tip to save some time.¬†Instead of using one finger for the swipe, use two fingers and you’ll immediately see all of the icons for settings. This way, there’s no need to pull the notifications shade down twice to get at the buttons for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode or any of those other one-touch settings buttons. Update: Although I can’t test it, readers indicate it works on Android 4.4 as well; even better!
