Some interesting work that I finished has been applied to file navigation and thought I would share on the development.
Was thinking of "IMach" could be a great way to navigate in Mach with touch screens. Who knows.THIS IS A LIVE PREVIEW BELOW, take you figer or mouse and "drag and release up/down" I also detect "Right/Left" "Swips" as well.http://alphagraphicdesigns.com/demo/IphoneScroll/IPhoneScroll.swf
There shouldn¡¦t be a learing curve to use it, I think that is way a trillion people like the IPhone º
This type of ¡§scrolling¡¨ should feel nature to work on a touch screen. The mouse does not do it justice º
-If you hold down and slid up/down it will scroll 1 at a time
-The shorter distance traveled in a longer time will make it scroll slowly
-The quicker you release will "roll" it quicker"
I measure distance and time and direction
I decided to do this to get angle of rotation:
There is alot of math envolved and I think I about got it pretty much to how the Iphone works.
I'll see how it goes might end up with a full touch screen based off this consept.
Let me know if the idea sucks or might be good.
