Are there any touchscreen directional button add-in programs for TouchFLO3D?

Hello all

I have a GPS mapping program called Delrome that so far seems to be working well with my Verizon TouchPro2.

The only down side is that the program is designed to use the typical directional button keys of a non-touch screen type device to do the zooming in an out.

So far I can do this just fine with the arrow keys on the slider keyboard but its kind of a pain to try to do while driving to open up the slider, find the key, set to the zoom to I think I might want an then close all that back up again.

So I was wondering if there were any add-on programs that put some touch screen buttons on the screen that I could assign those keyboard buttons to that might allow me to do this without having to open the slider board.

Thanks

You should give VolDpad a shot , it basically allows you use your volume keys like the dpad.

Wow thanks japper88

That program worked like a charm.

The only thing is I wish the developer had made some kind of a on/off switch for it as at least as far as I can see, its on all the time unless you uninstall it or navigate to it in the folder menu and click on it, but then you have to reinstall it again to make it work.

I can't even find any mention of it in the Start screen or All Applications list anywhere else for that matter.

Again its great but now you kinda have the possibility to start a program or call a contact f your not careful.

I wrote the programmer about this but do you know of anyway to do it?

Thanks again

I've been looking for a virtual D Pad for a while too. I have a few apps that require a D Pad and was hoping for some on screen arrows.

Well I can defiantly say this program works as described, just wish there was a easer way to enact and deact it.

So far it looks like the only way to enact it is to do the install cab, then you can deact by clicking on the installed file in the program menu.

Then to enact it again you have to do the install again.

There are a few assignable things to the volume buttons mentioned on the programs page but I didnít quite understand it all.

Btw I already got a e-mail reply from the programmer and all it said was to deact it click on the program in programs menu till you hear a noise notification and thatís all he wrote, which basically what was already on the page for the program.

Would seem simple to have made something a little more user friendly but hey it better then nothing.

Thanks

VolDPad sounds very good. I'm wondering if VolDPad has any conflicts with other programs - specifically Tarkim's Keyboard Controller or Mobile Shell
