I just wanted to let you know that I'm serving up Mobile Impact at Mobile-Effects.com I like the matching 'Mobile' names
I also added some screenshots to the image gallery.
While compiling the screen shots, here are some quick things that I noticed:
The OSK isn't very robust. I can't even enter in my own website using it....there's no '-' hyphen. Maybe you could add a button that adds a more advanced character set. Kind of like a shift or something. Once you hit shift, the other characters are displayed, once you press a character it goes back to the keyboard layout you have now.
Also, the settings page seems a little bare. Could you possibly code into the program the ability to change the resolution, rather than only 800 x 600?
The settings screen kinda comes up on top of the main page....(you can see parts of the main page on the right side) Maybe for looks, you can make the settings screen cover everything:
On the web browser page, as a suggestion - maybe replace the X button with the words Exit or something to indicate that button will take you to the home screen. Reason being that X that you use in the web browser to take you back to the home page is the same X that you use in the other screens to bring up the Exit screen. Just seems inconsistent. Perhaps you could do something similar to what you did on the DVD screen, there's an X and a house.
Also, iGuidance automatically loads for me, but rather small. For whatever reason it doesn't fill the space alotted on the screen. You can see what it looks like below in the left picture. I do have the ability to drag the iGuidance window and drag it down for a better view, but I have to do this everytime.
<--- When first opened | After dragging--->
There seems to be some other things going on too when trying to browse for media, pictures, etc....
If I'm inside my C drive, I can't get back out to go to a different partition. The "Up DIR" button doesn't bring you one level up from C.
Also, for whatever reason I can't drill down into any other drive than C. Is that the drive that all of your media has to be on? When I click on audio, it brings up the screen with my hard drives. If I click/dbl click/etc on drive other that C, nothing happens. Picture is below, only when I click on C does it go into the drive. D and E drives do nothing
I will read through the documentation and poke around the ini files and stuff before I mention anything else. I apologize if I mentioned something that was already explained elsewhere or in the documentation. I just wanted to give you kind of a 'first time user experience'. Sometimes that's all a normal person will give software before determining if it's keepable or not.
These are some of my suggestions. Please take them constructively. Having done some programming myself, I know how invaluable feedback is in making software really rock. I see an awesome front end here, that with a little polishing will be really popular.
Keep up the great work, and if there's anything you ever need, please let me know. I'll be posting more thoughts on this software when I get time.
Oh, and sorry for the Mobile-Effects.com watermark on the pictures I posted here. I just liked the screenshots from our image gallery and it does that automatically.
