GScroll app for the Diamond and Touch Pro

image We posted a while ago about the Touch Diamond and Pro having an area just below the screen that is capacitive and can support multi-touch, well at last we have a commercial application that can take advantage of this, GSCroll by mobile src allows you to swipe your finger left/right/up/down on the touch panel to scroll or navigate. This functionality will work in any Windows Mobile application that supports scrolling or navigation via the directional pad. More details and download links after the break.

GScroll allows you to swipe your finger left/right/up/down on the touch panel to scroll or navigate. This functionality will work in any Windows Mobile application that supports scrolling or navigation via the directional pad.

‘Tap & Tilt’ to Scroll

GScroll allows you to use your built in accelerometer to scroll or navigate any application. Simply double tap the center circle, and then begin tilting. To exit ‘Tap & Tilt’ mode, simply tap the touch panel.

Double-Tap Launch Zones

GScroll allows each of the 4 quadrants of the touch panel to be assigned to a custom application. Double tapping the quadrant will launch the application of your choosing. You can also assign custom actions to the hotkey, such as ‘Open Start Menu’ and ‘Close Current Application’.

Smart Scroll Mode

For both ‘Swipe’ and ‘Tap & Tilt’ scroll settings, you can either always scroll, always navigate (directional pad), or choose Smart Scroll Mode. This mode will choose the best suited method to control the current application. For example, PocketIE will scroll webpages, while swiping on the home screen will navigate up/down/left/right.
