One of the biggest hesitations that a lot of users have about switching to a modern-day, touch-only smartphone is the lack of physical keys. Over time, the feeling of a button moving beneath our finger is something that we've all gotten used to - everything from our TV remotes to our computers have physical keys, so naturally the switch to a touch only device can be a difficult transition. Thanks to Japanese company KDDI, that all may be changing, though.
Ever since the Android web Market was launched, one of my main gripes with its UI (let's not talk about content discovery here) was screenshot navigation. There were 2 basic problems - you could not click Next or Previous as those buttons did not exist, and the only way to close a screenshot close-up was by finding and clicking a tiny X button.
Most modern "lightbox"-style galleries already solved the aforementioned problems by adding easy navigation buttons and allowing you to click anywhere on the screen to dismiss the close-up.
Love using widgets? How about creating them? Zoom Widget Designer allows you to do just that, and it has something else going for it: it was made by the developer behind the excellent Tasker application - Crafty Apps. Better yet, Zoom will be fully integrated with Tasker in the future, so you will be able to make your custom Zoom widgets do just about anything your phone is capable of.
