Title: Please move the 'info' button...
Post by: phoneguy100 on June 07, 2011, 18:56:06
Please please move the info button away from the stop button.

It is very easy to walk a route and record it and then press info to see how far you have gone but to accidently hit the stop recording button next to it by mistake.

Maybe swap its place with the 'place button' but please move it.  :D


(my opinions for menion)
bought your app and love it on android.  Been using the awesome trekbuddy for years but this Locus now knocks the socks completely off it and is the best app EVER on android.
loving Locus and the 'smurf' skin works very well indeed for me.
good work Sir!!!!  ;)

I used my own custom one that I made, but I had trouble mapping things as not very good at all this.
Why you think it would work on Locus?
I do think your MaleSmurf skin is great though - I use it everyday.

No, the TrekBuddy CMS is complete different to the Locus CS and beside this, the features provided by Locus support much more powerful CS...  ;)  But if you want to make your own CS you have to start from beginning. I had to do the same...  :D

I think that would just move the problem. Maybe a confirmation dialog would be better.

Yeah rijackson741 - I thnk a confirmation would be perfect, that would be the best solution.

Hey MaleSmurf - it took me all my time to make a basic trekbuddy one - I dont have the brainpower that you have to make my own awesome Locus one.

menion: Lookoing forward to your idea mate.  sleep well.

Well, I never thought that I will spend again a lot of time in a cs after my work with Trekbuddy. But Locus is a such a funtastic software so that I decided to make by contribution to Locus...   ;)
