Motion_DirectCall[0]T-Mobile Galaxy S2 just got updated to Jelly Bean and with the update it received also a lot of new features. The Nature UX user Interface has lots of enhancements that make your experience on Android easier and more intuitive. One of these cool features are motion gestures that you can use on most devices with Nature UX.

Motion Gesures allow you to control your device and perform actions by simply touching and shaking your device in different manners. This is a cool feature that can find itself very useful in specific situations. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to use motion gestures on your Galaxy S2.

In order to use Motion settings you have to first activate the option. For this you can go from home screen to Applications > Settings > Motion. You will see that the setting is by default deactivated, so you have to turn it on. So touch the on/off slider and place it in “on position”. Then you can choose what features you want to turn on/off.
