Hello,

This is my first post.

I bought a ChildPad recently for my son and it turn out to be the resistive model (bad luck ;-) )

 

Now all things considered it's not too bad, except one thing that is making me crazy: zooming in a browser.

 

I'm used to pinch to zoom in my own tablet.

But with the single touch it's a bit unclear to me how this works exactly in a Browser.

It ends up zooming in an out all the time when I do not want it. (tried Opera, Firefox, ...)

 

I looked for some clear instructions on the web, but could not find any.

Does anyone know how single touch zoom works, or where it's described?

 

Regards,

Cic

If you are still able to swop the device for a capacitive unit, I would really recommend to do it. The capacitive version is so much better, also in terms of screen brightness(different backlight/touch layer) and build quality.

Anyways, zooming is a little bit different from the capacitive(in the default browser). While on capacitive double-tapping would zoom in the text part you have double-tapped on(I think that's the logic FF and Opera use too), on resistive it just zooms like 25% in. You can actually change the default zoom in the browser settings(browser -> settings -> advanced), I don't know whether it would make it easier for you.

Hello,

 

The device was bought in a shop and not via internet, in my country only mail order suppliers are obliged to take something back.

The shop does not want to take it back or replace it.

It's a bit stupid of me not to know there were 2 different models when I bought it, so I have to live with it (unless ARNOVA has some exchange policy via their support? Why did they release a resistive model for a few months at all ???)

 

The double tapping does work. But when scrolling it starts to zoom in and out as well... really annoying.

I've got an app called smartoffice, this one handles zooming nicely ... when you tap and hold it shows zooming arrows, if you move your finger it zooms in or out. But none of the browsers seem to do it.

 

And as resistive screens are going out, it'll probably become worse as developers are developing for capacitive screens.
