Hi ladies and guys,
Iíve finally managed to do what I was trying to do since about 4 months ago. Pinch to zoom on your device in browser/Album/more.
First, I want to thank to many people, from what I remember it is l5v3y (C, Windows, ...), Chainfire (reverse engineering within IDA), Da_G, thx1200 (ZoomBar mod), supbro (GreenButton app), Twopumpchump (psychic support) and from what I donít remember, many more.

So, this new version practically SIMULATES PINCH TO ZOOM FROM HTC HD2, so IT IS FLUID and BOUNCY
Just as I wrote earlier, THIS VERSION 2 IS WORKING ONLY IN OPERA! GMAPS AND ALBUM ARE BROKEN BECAUSE OF THIS NEW WAY FOR NOW!!


CURRENT DEVELOPMENT STATUS AND INFO HERE

9th July Update - spent another many hours on new algorithm, borrowing HD2, working, testing, swearing etc.
14th June Update #2 - use FIXED version, the normal one breaks GoogleMaps!
14th June Update - fixing many stuff, now Opera and GMaps work way better!



Original pre-published videos:
1st http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqYNHq9qQEs
2nd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPku_Jt3_8c
3rd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmLC5CkRwjs

Please, don't reupload these three, thanks. If you want to make one as a review or anything, sure you can do


Download stats:
alpha - 2286
alpha2 - 60
alpha2fixed - 3105



Downloading and running howto:
Download this attachment and install the cab on your device. Now you will have in Start new folder named Pinch To Zoom with two links - Enable and Disable.

Don't try running ResistiveSystemPinch.exe file twice (or more times!), otherwise it may crash your gwes (not sure why, I close everything)!

For those with problems running it in Opera, try this (thanks to kain144000!) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=237
Try downloading compatible Opera (thanks to NorcoFox)

Also note, that if you just launched PTZ, it reacts AFTER you first change your topmost window, so try going to eg home and then back to Opera!


ENJOY!


to keep me working (I spent many, MANY hours on this)

Donated:
- $12.5 - Scrufboy
Any $ is appreciated and will receive betas (if there will be any, there is not much to betatest)!

Compatibility list
  • Opera 9.5 - tested, works (on some builds) - with v2 it's broken!
  • Opera 9.7 - tested, works (on some builds)
  • Google Maps - tested, works - with v2 it's broken!
  • Opera 10 - doesn't support this type of stuff or I'm not aware of that
  • HTC Album - working on supporting it


Frequently asked questions:
  1. Will it work on WinMo 6 or 6.1? YES
  2. Will it work on QVGA, VGA, WVGA, HVGA, ..? YES
  3. How does it work? Magic...
  4. Can you add support for application XYZ? If it is doable then later yes, but not right now.
  5. I noticed you keep one finger still, do I have to? Since resistive touchscreens report only one finger, I detect movement between those two fingers. If you move both, it won't detect any change and it will fail to work! So yes, one finger must be still.
  6. It doesn't work for me!? I'm sorry, I can't do much without getting access to that device. I guess it must be some kind of uncompatibility between Opera version you have. GoogleMaps should work for everybody though.
  7. Can you give me source code? Yes, I can.
  8. And will you give to me? No, I won't. I'm too greedy! :P
  9. Can you make this for Android/Symbian too? No, I can't.


Tested devices:
  • HTC Touch Pro 2 -- WVGA, really good user experience


Known problems and their solution:
  • All except "it doesn't work for me" are gone?

Oh I should notice, that for best experience (hate this world after MWC ) is required WVGA screen because of digitizer resolution, but it will work on any screen (resistive)

And yes, one of the other testing devices will be hopefully soon friends' HTC HD and mine Kaiser once I turn it on.

Sure, WM6.1 will even work better, because it doesn't have that f...ing gestures

Smile Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I simply cannot express in mere words how much I can't wait for this. By the way, Prague is the most beautiful city on earth. I had the pleasure of going there in 2007, and was thoroughly amazed.
