Being an iPhone user for 5 years, I am having trouble figuring out some shortcuts for the phone. Anyone have some good shortcuts they know of or have the answers to the following ones if there is any?
Quickly call someone instead of clicking phone>opening contact profile>clicking call. Can you eliminate the second step? (A tip popped up saying something about double clicking phone to call back someone, or something like that. Exited out of it before reading it)
Quickly access recent photos taken instead of exiting out of the camera and going to the photos tile.
Open new tab in IE without clicking "...">tabs>click to open new tab?
Or any other double clicks, button holds, etc to get to something quick/skip some steps. or a link to a page that shows all the tricks for the phone.

Also for the photo one click the arrow on the screen, it will take you to your last photo.
For #3 I think there is a tip in the link I sent.
For #4 hold the back button to kill the current app. To see all open apps hold the back button down and a view pops up showing all open windows. Click and then hit the back button to kill that app.

I want to say you can swipe to one side to get to your recent photos. I've seen them do it in YouTube reviews - that could just be for photos you've taken during the time the camera app was open though. Sounds like the above poster has another solution as well.

In the camera app, swipe to the right side to see your recent photos. To quick call someone, go to People hub and pin the people you want to call quick to homescreen. After that you just click on their name and click "Call Mobile". For kill apps is what thekonger said.
