If done correctly, the scrollbar is the simplest(easiest to understand) and quickest way to find a contact. It is currently extremely difficult to use the scrollbar in the SHR contacts app. But, instead of making it always take up extra room, I would propose a dynamic resizing. Normally (when not in use) it's small like now. But if the user touches near the right edge, it should "explode" into a much bigger finger-friendly scrollbar. Instead of just scrolling the list, it would scroll one letter at a time (with adequate visual feedback). Then, when the user removes their finger from the screen, the list will pop to the selected letter.
How does that sound? -Steven On Thu, Jan 29, 2009 at 12:45 PM, Johny Tenfinger <seba.d...@gmail.com> wrote: > On Thu, Jan 29, 2009 at 19:37, kimaidou <kimai...@gmail.com> wrote: >> About the scrollbar, it is much to thin to be reachable with the finger.
