10.6: An Exposé feature in application switching System 10.6
Snow Leopard only hintHere is another Exposé keyboard trick, this one available when doing Application Switching.

When Tab Switching between applications, besides Command+Tab, and Command+Shift+Tab (or Command+~); if you select the desired application, continue holding the Command key, and press 1, the selected application's windows are spread out Exposé style (from all Spaces).

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. Like this earlier hint and others, there are lots of keyboard shortcuts built into Exposé which are not expected. I'm sure Mission Control in Lion will be full of surprises, too.]

After hitting “Command 1” you can continue to hit “ Command Tab” to continue switching between apps and maintain the “Show me the windows” view.

You actually don't even need to keep holding command. Tab and ~ or Shift-Tab will switch forward and backward, and the arrow keys will highlight individual windows, at which point the return key will select that window.

It works the other way around, too. Invoke Exposé, then press Tab to switch between individual applications.

If you press tab in the view you get after command+tab, command+1 you will cycle through applications in the command+1 view.
