This isn't anything revolutionary or remotely useful. But,... I haven't seen anything like it and I figured I'd share it. You never know when you might want to use it. I made it in flash and you type in your text, up to 15 characters then hit the button and there ya go. Scrolling. Large. Just copy the .exe to your device/card and run. It works good on Omap devices but better on 400mhz+ devices. I currently don't have a SmartPhone so if anyone could try it on smartphone and let me know if it works that would be great. I'm not sure if you can get into the text box without tapping it.

Not sure exactly what this is supposed to do? You're scrolling to search and find text you've just typed in or what? Can you attach some screenshots please?

You type in text then hit the button and that text will scroll across the whole screen infinitely. Borderline postworthy but I thought it might have it's uses and as I said I've never seen anything do that before. You don't see the screenshots?

You will not believe this, but I was just thinking about a software like this this morning. Back in my old Palm OS days, I had a marquee-style scrolling app that I would use to display a message from across the room. I was just wondering this morning if anyone had made such a thing for pocket pcs. Thanks. With text messaging, I may not have as much use for it now, but I will find a way to use it.

It works as promised, dunno what exactly I'll do with it, but I like it.
A few requests;
1) More characters
2) Landscape mode (wider viewing area)
3) Colors?

Thanks for the app
