1. A method of controlling a mobile terminal, comprising the steps of:
executing a first function;
executing a second function and displaying an execution screen associated with the second function on a touchscreen;
determining whether the mobile terminal has been tilted by an amount that exceeds a first threshold;
when it is determined that the mobile terminal has been tilted by an amount that exceeds the first threshold, displaying the execution screen associated with the second function and an execution screen associated with the first function;
determining whether a touch input to the touchscreen occurs while the execution screen associated with the second function and the execution screen associated with the first function are displayed; and
displaying the execution screen associated with the first function when it is determined that the touch input has occurred,
wherein:
the execution screen associated with the first function is displayed with a first visual effect that comprises displaying the execution screen associated with the first function in a semitransparent manner, and
displaying the execution screen associated with the second function and the execution screen associated with the first function comprises:
gradually decreasing the level of transparency of the execution screen associated with the first function and gradually decreasing a level of opacity of the execution screen associated with the second function as the amount of mobile terminal tilt increases beyond the first threshold.
