i've been using the android orbiter and it works great, i do believe that the screen should be restricted to landscape, since the portrait just scales the image..... or maybe the portrait image can be set to not scale it.

It just looks wrong and it's hard to make selections, however if it would cover the full screen, it would be great for one handed operation.

What do you all think of this.

I have played with HADesigner a bit and will try to fix the layout a little if that's the more desired action to take.

BTW the  orbiter i am using is 720x480 and i'm using a droidx

Re Above - we're making that same restriction in the next release of the iOS Orbiter too - Landscape only.

Re Above - 100% agree with you. On the iOS Orbiter we just rotate to either landscape orientation.

This is just to say that yesterday I finally was able to put my hands on an Eken M002 (Android 1.6), and I installed on it the Android Touch Orbiter.

It is working like a charm, so thank you Darren for your great job.

Shortly I should be able to test it on a HTC Wildfire (cross fingers, it will be my wife's new cell), and I will report back.

Thanks again
Marco

Any progress on authentication, or blue tooth connectivity?

We are working on adding secure remote access support to the iOS iTouchOrb Orbiter currently. The next release will have support for this and its based on a system we already use here at CHT. I believe some of the backend code may already be in the SVN.

More details on the above shortly.

We're not working on any Blue Tooth capability for iOS devices currently.

Cheers

iOS iTouchOrb is the offical name of the Android orbiter, or a parallel project?

Hi ,

What exactly is slow? Screen draws? Refreshes? Response to touch?

There is a setting to change the polling interval. decreasing this will only improve the visibility of non-user invoked events (ie; pused out)

Havn't looked into it any further, when there is another touch orbiter working (ie: Backend is in place) will do an update to do the same....

Carlos,

I see. Every touch does an image refresh so the behaviour should be similar for any touch orbiter. Will have a look when I can and see what can be done to make it better.

What is your network connection like for other things - pretty quick?

It might just be a product of slow device/wireless network/large images.....

Will update when I know more.

regards
Darren

My Eken m006 just arrived and I got it working last night without a hitch. Only catch was that i had to create a custom resolution.

Also I installed the program called Screen Mode which prevents the screen from locking so that you don't have to do the annoying swipe each time you pick it up.

Only request would be for some auditory feedback on button pushes. Oh yeah, follow-me would be the icing on the cake :p

Nice work!
