FlightMap 7 inch tablet support update

Posted on Updated on

Turns out there are a few different aspect ratios for 7 inch tablets. Picked up an Asus memopad to verify support. It’s got the worst screen I have ever seen on a tablet but it was cheap.

Things are coming along very nicely.

Here are some of the first images of FlightMap running on 7 inch tablets. I’ve been able to implement this all in the same application so 1 app will work for 7 inch tablets and above. It’s working really well but I think the buttons on the bottom are a little to small. I’m going to look at removing one or two of the buttons and that should give me some room to play with to make larger hit areas. Overall thought really nice. To maximize screen I did decide to remove the gauges. I’ll be doing a dedicated application just for the gauges in the next few months

FlightMap: 7 inch tablet support started

Posted on Updated on

Work has begun on the 7 inch tablet support. I have a Nexus 7 in hand and I’ve already reformatted the launch screen to work with it. I hope to have more information in the coming days.
