Hi All,

Ever had troubles trying to scroll a window with your finger by tapping the scrollbar? Well this enhancement will solve this issue. Now you can scroll with your fingers, ANYWHERE on the screen.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Changes from Alpha:
-PIE scrollable now!
-Bug fixes
-Performance enhancments, somewhat.

-Compact Framework v2 (SP1)

If you like it, show me the money.

Work well with PIE and Hermes. But unable to scroll with other touch program ie PocketCM, etc. Be nice if this app included exlusion list option for these touch programs. Many thanks again

problems with other apps....pocketcm and icontacts...
this is a very goood program...although i like the pocketcm interface of scrolling with my contacts..i though that pocketcm was just acting up so i tried i contacts and same now... disable it from the home/today screen and voila pocketcm works again... can i get this to co-exist with pocketcm and/or icontacts? i really love the way programs and PIE work like a charm with this..any help appreciated..

I tried it with a qtek9000 (wm6) and it worked, but it repeats twice the tap action, and the scrolling action isn't that easy.
But it is a very promising application.
Thank you!

the good-

1. Now scrolls in the correct direction so that is good.

the bad-

1. Shortcuts and web links are getting activated when lifting finger of the screen.

2. 'Tap and Hold' context menu is disabled in all applications (i.e. PIE, Newsbreak ect..)

3. The scroll is too fast compared with finger movement.

wish list-

1. I use and like the builtin screen drag in PIEPlus. So therefore would be nice to exclude cerstain applications (I think others have asked for this ability also).

Anyways, I appreciate your efforts to make PPC more finger friendly and this is a good start.

my thoughts
i have to be honest, i didn't expect this to actually work. but right after i installed and SR'ed, it worked like a charm! i'm impressed. however, some issues.

one thing that others have noticed is that it seems to have disabled any form of scrolling that is not related to scroll bars. for example, both my PocketCM and my Slide2Unlock were nonfunctional once this alpha was running.

2nd: again, as noted by kismat1970, it completely disables any form of tap and hold, which renders a vast majority of PPC applications useless.

along with fixes to those problems, i would also like to see an exclusion list, and perhaps a way to temporarily disable it? like when you tap on the small icon on the today screen, there is only an option to exit. i would like if there was sort of a toggle (as a side effect, a toggle would be a temporary workaround for the two problems i listed; however, not a permanent fix, for sure)

Good work on the alpha, overall. I'll keep my eye on this to see how it develops.
