RE: [aprsisce] Up/Down Options (was: aprsisce mobile (Feature Request))
- Opening the soft keyboard and clicking the up, down, left, and right buttons will also work without sliding the keyboard out on the Tilt2.

Another possible suggestion. My Tilt has 3 ways to get up/down arrows.
1) Open the keyboard and type them there
2) The square rocker button at the bottom does up/down and left/right
3) There's a spin knob on the left side (volume control) that also
delivers up/down to APRSISCE
Try whatever passes for a fast-access volume control on your phone while
APRSISCE is running and see if it actually does the zooming for you.
Remind me what your phone is and maybe I can look it up and see if
there's any other controls that might do (or could be made to do)
up/down. Zooming is THE most frequent operation I do while mobile, so I
totally understand the request.

PS. And lest you think Lynn has OD'd on Mountain Dew, I actually bought
the bluetooth keyboard for my WebDT 366, but it does work fine on the
Tilt as well. It's about twice as long as the Tilt, and almost as thick
(without the Tilt's extended battery), but it sure was nicer to type an
e-mail with it than the little tilt-out keyboard on the phone!
