HippoRemote Tip #4 – No Look Circular Scrolling

with 2 comments

Circular Scrolling is a really handy feature. The obvious use is to scroll through documents and web pages. But did you know you can scroll to zoom in/out of Google (and Yahoo) maps? Or flip through CoverFlow in iTunes?

But benefits aside, it was always a bit annoying to have to take our eyes off the TV and hunt for the scroll button on the iPhone screen. With version 1.2, we’ve made Circular Scrolling even easier to use. Just start dragging your thumb across the bottom of the screen to activate scrolling. We’ve enlarged the detection zone to include the entire tab bar at the bottom of the trackpad — instant no-look scrolling.

In fact, for those of you who like really minimal interfaces, you can go into the settings and hide the scroll button, but still have access to Circular Scrolling via the trackpad’s tab bar.

  1. i’d really love for this feature to work in Plex. Any chance this could be implemented?

  2. My spouse and i have been thrilled that Jordan could round up his studies from your precious recommendations he gained using your web pages. It’s not at all simplistic to simply be giving away facts which often many others might have been selling. And we also fully grasp we have you to give thanks to for this. The main illustrations you made, the simple blog navigation, the relationships you will make it easier to instill – it’s got everything fabulous, and it is letting our son in addition to the family reckon that that matter is exciting, which is truly fundamental. Thank you for all the pieces!
