Pinch to Zoom for Any Device Available Soon

Are you jealous that the only WM device that can replicate the multi-touch ability of the iPhone is the HD2? Do you have issues while trying to zoom in on your favorite pictures while using HTC Album? XDA member OndraSter brings us the answer to your prayers. Although it isn’t yet released (but will be soon), this app/driver will enable multi-touch capability on pretty much any WM device with a touchscreen. The dev is currently ironing out a few kinks left and even though he will release it sometime next week, he has released a video showing that this is very much the real thing (no camera tricks, no gimmicks).

Testing and developing device is being used TMOUS HTC Touch Pro 2. No, this isn’t fake using zoombar, this is real thing. Oh and I used Opera 9.7 from TMOUS LEO 2.13 ROM I think .
It should work in theory in any application. It took me about 4 hours to fixup Opera in order to find out, that Album uses different stuff, with Album and other apps I’ll play later this week.

I will provide download and all other support later this week once I fix up last few things. But main functionality is up and running quite fine.

Thanks for watching and let me create one more free post for some stuff (list of supported apps, …)

You can find more information on the development thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
