    both devices have an accelerometer.So imagine flicking through photos or scrolling by tilting the phone in left,right,up, down an selecting the item by bounce it a bit in a quick jerk.to get an idea

    That just looks annoying. For every mistake he made trying to tilt it to where he wanted to go, my finger could've swiped or clicked faster than that. Just because it CAN be done, doesn't mean it SHOULD be done. Lame.
