cant find gsensor on omnia2 :( sad.. would have been great

Kyauphie @ May 30th 2010 10:20 pm

It would also be great to have a smooth repitition feature for the directional setting to be able to scroll or pan.


Kyauphie @ May 30th 2010 10:16 pm

HTC TP2. WM6.5: I think I love this app. It works well. I wish I didn't have to shake so hard, people keep asking me what's wrong or what I'm doing...haha. It would also be great if it had a tilt feature. I really like that it has an optional display; it helps me learn how exactly to shake my phone and remember what I associated with each direction. All around great app.

unfortunately the G-sensor on my garmin m10 is not supported. The app is running and seems to be very useful if one has a supported device.
