20Re: [aprsisce] New APRSISCE For Windows Mobile Released!
- Aug 5, 2009Dave,
Actually, the left/right change the transparency of the map. It only
looks like the detail changes as it becomes darker. As I was writing
the release notes, an early tester of the left/right feature reported
the left wrapping issue.
I think the delay in the +/- on the screen is Windows Mobile hesitating
to see if your motion was going to be a double-click or not. With the
keyboard, there's no uncertainty.
If your HTC Touch Pro has a navigation rocker thing on the face, it also
works for the up/down/left/right. At least, my AT&T Tilt works that way!
Thanks for the positive (and quick!) feedback. At least I know it works
for one more person than just me!
