12-23-2012, 01:00 PM #1[Winterboard] Swipe - Lockscreen theme only!
The idea came from having simply too much info and only a small display on the lockscreen.
So squeezing lots in makes not only the font too small, but the wallpaper of the lockscreen almost invisible.
So, I thought about another way to have lots of info available without having to clutter the lockscreen.
Touch events are nice, but how easy is it to touch the "wrong" place, so I was looking at swipe gestures and set the threshold to 200px, so an "accidental" slip on the lockscreen does not trigger anything.
So, here is what I have come up so far.
Swiping with one finger to the right cancels any current display and just shows the "untouched" lockscreen, I needed that as not all displays have a time limit (only time & day and datum).
Swiping with one finger up displays the time for 5 seconds.
Swiping with one finger down displays the day and datum for 5 seconds.
Swiping with one finger to the left displays the weather and forecast for your current location, GPS based (myLocation.txt) with location name from Google - Yahoo location names really suck!)
Swiping with 2 fingers up displays the 4 latest tweets from "your choice" users.
Swiping down with 2 fingers displays the 3 latest news from "your choice" RSS-new feeder.
Swiping with 2 fingers to the left displays Google Maps with your current location marked in the center of the Satellite view. Google Maps is fully interactive, you can switch to Map view, zoom, move or use Streetview.
So lots of available info without cramping the lockscreen, only a swipe away.
