I found it a bit difficult to discover the tabs feature. Altough, it is taking to much space from the screen . The text is too small and the blank area is … alot. The text shows all the names in capitals only… Some ajustments for font size and tab size can be very usefull.
I think it is natural to use swype to switch trough the tabs, same as the homescreen of the smartphnes(most of them actually. Swype does nothing on
Hmmm… I have no problem with it on any Android or emulator I use… very smooth and quick to get from first to final tab.
PS I just noticed the “Disconnected from my bluetooth device” message… which is funny, seeing how I don’t have any such BT/BLE device in this project or on any active project… another minor glitch I guess
Yes, I learned that one early on If I have to have a button or slider on the right I make sure I have other space to swipe from… still, it is a pain and requires a fraction more time to position the finger… which does tend to conflict with muscle memory from swiping other phone screens and apps from any old where on the screen.
I think Blynk’s UI touch sense is just a little more sensitive.
When you have a lot of tabs, and bouncing between say 1st and last, etc. to compare info or change settings (which I do frequently at times), I sure wouldn’t want to have the distraction of all the tabs in the middle sliding by… especially if while swiping around, say while looking for the correct tab … and everything swipes… well, I think it would get harder to find the correct tab, and I wouldn’t enjoy that
1st world problems… too many tabs
I suppose if they redesign it like the Android’s “open App” function or whatever the square button does, where you can see partial preview of many tabs… perhaps… but that sounds like a lot of design effort.
But as stated, with current touch sensitivity and visual layout providing positional awareness (e.g. which tab or screen am I on), I can navigate between two full tabs quicker, with better awareness, then swiping up and down and wondering if that particular screen even has more info above or below where I am looking.
Yes, I do use both Tabs and vertical scrolling… and I have actually gotten lost, looking for that particular display or button, within the few tabs that use the vertical method
EDIT - ahh dyslexia… I thought you meant the up and down scrolling
The way the current tabs slide, you would only ever see the one you are on and the one in either direction you would be sliding to… I think a complete redesign would be necessary to see, say 4-5 partial views, as you scroll around.
2nd EDIT… and even that way (and the way Android uses) still require that final click to choose… duh… how I missed that?
Anyhow, I like how it currently works. I simply rely on tab names and the ability to quickly click and peek as I go.
True… but consider the context… swiping on a phone is for quick viewing and choosing on a menu like environment… once you get into the meat of an App, then depending on the UI, you may not want your screen sliding around without solid forethought, say while trying to move a slider or drag you finger too much, etc.
Now if you restricted the whole screen sliding to only when touching the tab bar… i suspect the same issue I described would occur for heaver tab users, who want to bounce back and forth only between two screens, without distraction of midway content. (I would much rather see adjustable tab/page placements… without delete and recreate requirements… I know, coming soon )
Anyhow… The OP isn’t clear of the idea/issue and the rest is clearly subjective opinion But it was a thought provoking discussion… even if I do use 10 words to your 1
