double tapping
Read most of these replies and i had the same issue regardless if i tap in the same spot, speed etc.

Anyways even though i dont wear gloves, i had this option ticked which affected the sensitivity of the screen. Once i unticked this option, the double tapping works 100% regardless of where on the screen i tap etc. you just need to tap consecutively close not seconds apart and mine never fails.

Hope this helps....

I noticed that also, but the circle that appears when you are close to the screen drives me nuts, so I turned it off. Instead I tap 3 times. That seems to do the trick.

Hi guys! I ran into the same problem , and I hope my post will help someone. You 've probably noticed that a double tap works in virtually 100 % of cases, if the phone is lying on a flat surface and does not move. So the trick is to keep your phone in a stationary while you're tapping . If you have small hands ( like I have ) , I recommend to keep the phone so that the lower left corner of the phone rested in the palm of your hand, and so the phone will not move. Pressing force and velocity values are not actually important. Sorry for my English and I hope somebody will find this information useful

After a week of using it, i had the same problems as you guys.

You should get used to how to tap. Not very fast, slowly is better .
