And here is a test program

March 20, 2012 @ 10:42

I just whipped up a little multitouch bug tester program for Android. As noted in my previous post, lots of Android phones running 2.3.7 and earlier have buggy multitouch. In this example, I show the pointers (up to 5) with pointer numbers. You should be able to see at least two, and if the bug is not present, they should work properly. If you have the bug, you’ll notice 1 and 2 swapping back and forth as you touch 1, touch 2, lift 1, then tap 1.

Enjoy. multitouchbugtest.apk

I finally quit being lazy and updated my first Android app, calCOOLator. It was semi-broken because it was using standard java.lang.Double numbers, now I’m using java.math.BigDecimal and dealing with precision much better. Maintaining old applications, especially when it’s been years since you even looked at the code, is a little annoying.

I’m sure I’ll still get comments about how it doesn’t handle percentages correctly. “50 + 10% = 55” - wtf kind of math is that?
