I finally installed bugless beast 7.4 and really like it. I like the multi touch in all the applications but I found that I miss having the zoom buttons in the browser. I like the multi touch for fine zoom control but I like just hitting the zoom button and it automatically fits the text to the screen. Does anyone know of a way to have both? I know you can double tap the screen but I find I like the button better.
Does the web browser on the Hero have the little zoom in/out buttons like other Android phones? Is there anything like this? The reason I ask is that multitouch, while very cool, doesn't look very practical when you're using the phone with one hand as that only really leaves the thumb free for key pressed and screen touches.
I have been trying to get this seemingly simple problem fixed for about half a day now. I have a working MapView and I just want to show the default zoom keys and have them there all the time. They do not appear at all - it's not that they appear then go away.
I have tried commenting out the setZoom and tried moving the setBuiltInZoom controls to the updateLocation method. I've found a lot of posts in relation to this problem but none that solve it.
Spent 2 weeks poking around Android SDKs and sacrificed last two weekends and finally managed to get a relatively stable version today. Named 'xScope', I did put a $2.99 price tag tough if you please excuse me. I need to buy a bird for this thanksgiving and wife kept bashing my development effort for not doing any housework in the past weeks. The browser is not full blown but works great for simple surfing.
Update (11/7): Calkulin has made a mod for the Evo! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=785271 Update: An XDA dev has made a permanent solution for Desire froyo ROMs. If anyone's interested you can follow his thread to see if it'll work on an Evo. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=786290 Update: A commenter on my Youtube video has found a fix!
I guess that's what it's called? Basically where the web page/text reformats to fit the width of the screen when zoomed. There is a video floating around from The Street TV where the "reviewer" says the DX doesn't do this.I really like this feature (Evo does this quite well) and is one of my pet peeves with browsing on my Ipod Touch.Does anyone know for sure whether DX does or doesn't have this capability?I asked the guy who did the AC benchmark test and he said that the DX does do this. Someone else said that it's a setting in the browser. Others are saying that it doesn't do it.Seems like such a basic feature that I can't imagine a phone like the DX would not be able to do this.
I have a lot of lag with the ZOOMING function of the Dolphin browser for my Hero. Whether I use the multitouch pinch-zoom, or the actually zoom buttons on the bottom of the screen, its laggy. Am I doing something wrong? The pinch-zoom is way laggier than the pinch-zoom on the stock browser...
I installed froyo this morning and had to download all my apps again including dolphin hd, now when I use the pinch to zoom the text does't automatically fit the screen anymore, I've checked and the auto fit box is checked.
Coming from an iPhone to the Fascinate, I've noticed that the pinch to zoom feature in the browser auto-fits the text after the zoom in. On my iPhone that didn't happen. I can see where auto-fit would come in handy, but there are times I don't want the layout of the site to change. I just want to zoom it a little - I'll happily finger scroll to the left, right, up, or down to read something.
Is there a way to disable the auto-fit on the zoom-in for the stock browser? I know there are other browsers out there, but I'm asking about the stock browser.
I want to do some browser automation from my android phone. I have tasker, but that only gives me http post and http get operations. I do not think that these functions can do that.
Basicaly, I want to open a browser, go to a website, login. I would also like to automate this from a job scheduler. I can do a schedule with tasker.
However, when I google how to programmatically click buttons and send usernames and passwords, I can't find an application that has that functionality on the android. I may need to code it. When I google 'android automation' etc... I get selenium and other utilities that are run on a pc to test android applications. I do not see anything to manipulate browsers. iMacros is not out yet for android.
I basically just want to connect to a page, pass my username and password and do a perform click.
