Show and Explain Dual-Touch Technology On Resistive Screens

If you’d like to understand and see how Dual-Touch Technology works on your resistive screen, take a look at Multi 2.0, an application developed by XDA forum member TangoChen.

The app helps to explain how Dual-Touch Technology works.

Features of the app include:

  • Picture – You can drag the picture with one finger or stylus and zoom the picture with two fingers (Pinch to Zoom).
  • GamePad – An On-Screen GamePad that supports up to two pressed buttons!
  • Fact – To show how this application works inside.

How does Dual-Touch work? When you touch the screen with two fingers one by one, you get three points of reference:  1) Fixed Point – location of first finger, 2) Real Point – hardware detection point when two fingers are placed and 3) Fake Point – location of second finger. Interestingly, the hardware does not ‘know’ about this position – instead it is calculated by the application.

Requires Windows Mobile device with resistive screen, .NET CF 3.5/3.7.

For more information and to download Multi 2.0, check out the application thread.

XPrivacy for Android Lollipop – XDA Xposed Tuesday

Have you ever been on the Google Play Store and saw an app that you wanted to try, but the sheer amount of permissions put you off? Why does a LED Color app need access to my calendar? Sometimes app developers tell you that it’s because of the ads. However, other times, apps don’t explain why they are spying on your text messages.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
