S2V is a stylus-free picture viewing application. It can also be used to set up the wallpapers for S2U2 (0.97 or later); assign a pic to a contact; set it as Today's wallpaper; or send it via MMS/email.

- WM5 Phone or WM6 Professional devices
- free RAM: at least 6M for QVGA
- if you cannot start S2V, delete the whole registry tree HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\A_C\S2V, then start S2V again.

Changes of v0.42
- fixed the occasional bug that S2V quit unexpectedly when viewing a particular folder.
- added the options to change the sorting menu symbol. It's only useful for those devices that cannot display the triangles on the sorting menu. How? Create a registry value AscendingSymbol (String) at \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\A_C\S2V\, set the content to whatever you want, e.g. ^, or even a word (ascending). Create another one called DescendingSymbol for the descending order.
- fixed some minor bugs.

Changes of v0.40 (20-8-2008)

- added sort option by time or name.
- added thumbnail pic cache (the cache folder can be custom by the registry value "CacheFolder" at \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\A_C\S2V\).
- added send function to send a pic via MMS/email.
- added sliding effect when zooming a pic.
- added support to RealVGA.
- reduced the chances of blank screen when a device has enough memory.
- separate CAB files for QVGA(low-res) & VGA(high-res) devices.
- changed some menu labels; for non-English translation, pls refer to the lang.ini file.
- fixed some minor bugs.

Changes of v0.38 (23-5-2008)
- added a delete function.
- added option to open a pic through the command switch (for advanced users, you can now associate pic files to be opened by S2V).
- added some shortcuts: ANSWER key to quit; END/OK key to minimize; tap the top right corner to minimize.
- reduced the RAM usage a little.
- reduced the contact pic size so as to reduce the chance of Outlook sync error (but for VGA or above devices, there is still chances that the pic will over the size that Outlook can handle).
- all system icons are live when S2U2 (v1.00 or later) is already running in the background.
- fixed the issue that some devices cannot run in Landscape mode.
- fixed some minor bugs.


Thumbnail view & folder view (press the folder name to view that folder's pic; press the ARROW to view that folder's sub-folders)

- Slide the screen to view the previous or next picture (or press the DPAD left/right);
- Slide on the left-side screen from top to bottom to rotate 90 degrees anti-clockwise; slide from bottom to top to rotate 90 degrees clockwise; when sliding on the right-side screen, the rotation will be opposite.
- Press DPAD Up to Zoom-in or Down to Zoom-out; double-tap the screen or push the DPAD-ACTION to return to the normal view.
- Slightly press the screen to call up the lower menu.
- Press the Back button at the Thumbnail screen to browse folders.
- When browsing folders, if there is an Arrow button next to a folder, it means that folder has subfolders. Press this Arrow button to view the subfolders.
- Shortcuts: ANSWER key to quit; END/OK key to minimize; tap the top right corner to minimize.

- Under your PC/MAC/device, extract the content of the downloaded file & copy the CAB file to your device.
- Under your device, run any File Explorer application; go to the folder where the CAB file is copied; run the CAB file.

Known limitations & FAQs:
Q. Do I have to install the old version before using this version?
A. No.

Q. How to use the .CAB file?

Q. Do I have to install S2U2 before installing S2V?
A. No.

Q. Can a GIF file be assigned to a contact?
A. No.

Q. When viewing GIF file, there is no animation?!
A. Yes.

Q. After assigning a photo to a contact, the Activesync on the PC shows an error!
A. It's because the size of the assigned photo is too large for Outlook to handle. You may manually press the sync button once more to dismiss the error, but it will not be saved in Outlook.
A. Upgrade to v0.38 or later.

Q. After running S2V a while, the ZOOM function/folder browsing does not work!
A. That's because your device is running out of free memory.

Q. When browsing folders, I cannot view the subfolders?! S2V always say "no picture here"?!
A. It's because the pics are sit at the subfolders. If a folder has subfolders, an "ARROW" button will be displayed next to it. Press that "ARROW" button will show the subfolders.

Q. After assigned a pic as Today's wallpaper, then change to Landscape mode, the wallpaper does not work?!
A. You have to assign another pic as the Landscape wallpaper as well.

A. Try other today theme; some themes have problem when wallpaper is altered.

A. Yes, but any donation is welcome (, thanks.

This looks great, I can't wait to test it. Its already posted over in PPCGeeks (that was fast).

I must say A_C....I just got the iTouch, and your apps (S2U2, and I think this as well) are better than what is offered on the 'original' devices. More features, better support, and smoother operation!!!!!

Keep up the good work!!!
