Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
ZoomBarPlus V2 BETA for Rhodium
Member thx1200 updates his great app to make zoom bar more functional and useful.
The Zoom Bar is the little strip at the bottom of your Touch Pro 2’s screen that is used in a handful of applications on your device. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use it in every application? Customized to fit your needs? That’s where ZoomBarPlus comes in! You can map keystrokes for tapping, double tapping, long tapping, and swiping left/right. Default zoom functionality is also retained for all applications that are already Zoom Bar aware.
This app was developed because I wanted to have a virtual D-Pad of sorts. The default actions are swipe-right sends the down arrow, swipe-left the up arrow, double tap the action (center) button, long tap is backspace (which is “back” in Total Commander CE, which I use a lot). You can set it up any way you want!
ZoomBarPlus is a TRUE Windows Mobile service, so it does NOT use one of the precious few 32 slots available for processes.
