I installed your app, but it's not coming up. Any ideas as to why?

You swipe from the right hand side of the screen (make sure your finger touches somewhere within 10px of the right hand side

Did that work?

The service auto starts at boot, if you havent rebooted, try to launch the activity from your launcher and you should be able to swipe after that

Cool, I look forward to testing it out. Having used the current one for a few days, it really is something parrot should have added from day one.

Okay I got it working. I think what happened was I didn't see the little rectangled shaded area to swipe, so I tired bringing it up by pressing on the app icon itself. This turns off the shaded area. Just a thought, you might want to have the ability to press on the app icon to bring it up as well as the swipe.

It works great. I like the concept and I like that it stays up till I'm ready to touch again to close it.

Anyway you can connect this to the permanent built-in volume button on the lower left? One more suggestion, besides the wheel/knob, how about an up down button option so we have both options, a wheel and up and down buttons.

Thanks for your work.

OUKU vs PARROT?
I'm in the market to buy one of these devices. How does thsi compared to the OUKU / Unbranded ones? Does this have better screen/build. Any difference between the two?

By allowing the app to be launched from the icon instead of the swipe on the side, you could easily bind it to the built in volume button using asteroid Tweaker.

Hmm they are all around a similar price range the Ouku also has xda support. Then just saw there is this ANDROID-XTRONS-TD620A on ebay.
I think Ouku has capacitive screen, is Parrot multitouch or capacitive (im honestly confused w touchscreen tech).



Sounds like the Xtrons is technically superior?

ajosefox, you need to go into settings and uncheck all the "wifi only options" . I noticed after a recent update I also could no longer stream station or anything, it seems like even on a mobile broadband or bluetooth tether that it knows its not wifi so it won't stream. Not sure if 2.3.7 that the Parrot is based on knows the difference between a wifi tether and regular wifi, but I found that having all the wifi options off helped.

It is a 736x480 capacitieve screen, here are a lot of the specs in my Dutch review. Specs are in English.

I don't know the other brands, but I think parrot is a well known brand and it is one of the only hu's which let you use 2BT phones at the same time.

Apparently instead of turning off the screen like on your phone/tablet, it triggers this clock screensaver thing. Uninstalling left it at 1 min, so I had to find another app to fix it since it's not available in settings. Got it reset to 0 and not more annoying screen. So basically, nothing to see here. User error.

For second week i cant`t find any programm that can set timeout to 0 I tried No Lock and others, but it removes screensaver, or make timeot longer, but screen still dim. Can anybody recomend me some app?
It will be good, if such feature would be in asteroid tweeker...

Thank you.
