I wish this was available for more devices: MobileSRC's GScroll adds a whole bunch of functions to the capacitive touch panel of the HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro (plus the AT&T Fuze), including:

  • Swiping to scroll
  • Launching applications with gestures
  • Application switching
  • Tap & Tilt, utilizing the built-in accelrometer for scrolling and panning
  • Per process customization

GScroll 2.0 is available for $4.99 for registered users of GScroll 1.x, and is on offer for $6.99 for a limited time through our affiliate link. A free trial is available for those who want to try it out first.

Fight Night 2008: Diamonds vs. Androids

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 04:30 AM

Remember a few weeks ago when I reported that my Samsung Blackjack had an unfortunate run-in with a clumsy waiter and a glass of water? If so you will probably remember that I was taking suggestions for new phones to purchase. Being the undecided gadget enthusiast that I am, even after I decided to pick up the HTC Touch Diamond from Sprint, a company which I loathe, I decided to pick up a T-Mobile G1 as well. I figure if I am going to be stuck with one of these devices for the foreseeable future, I better put them to the test and see which one comes out on top and in the process expand my mobile gadget horizon.

Summary:
After playing with the T-Mobile G1 since I first picked it up bright and early at 8:00am and playing with the HTC Touch Diamond all day yesterday and today I can easily say hands down the T-Mobile G1 is so much more usable than the HTC Touch Diamond. There are some things I really like about the Touch Diamond and the TouchFLO 3D interface truly is beautiful. Unfortunately I have found the TouchFLO 3D interface to not be very practical and the device itself to be fairly unusable for my needs. After using a Windows Mobile Standard device for years on end and being accustomed to the streamlined layout which allowed me to get to whatever I needed with one hand quickly - jumping over to the cluttered and highly frustrating old school Windows 95 tap based interface of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional just filled me with pure rage. Why in the world does everything that triggers a reaction in the operating system have to be so darn small and hard to press?! Can someone PLEASE explain that to me!? Even with a stylus I spent a large majority of time thinking to myself "Really? Someone thought this was a good design idea…Really?" Read more...
