Pre Screens Vs. ACCESS Screens: Rematch

Filed under: Groundwork — mikecane @ 5:01 pm

ACCESS, apparently still oblivious to the fact no one is interested in their OS, has revamped it yet again and stuck new lipstick on that pig redone the eye-candy and user interface.

With that happening, it’s time to update my original Pre Screens Vs. ACCESS Screens post.

This time, ACCESS didn’t provide screensnaps of its Photo or Messaging applications. So I’ve swapped those out for the Browser.

And, as before, if I scale the ALP screens to the width of the Palm Pre ones, they don’t match. Before they were shorter. This time they’re longer. Go figure!

I think it’s safe to say ACCESS learned a lot — from Windows Mobile.

How pathetic and sad.

  3. […] Visual cues for scrolling Pre does not seem to provide any visual cues for knowing if there is something more to see on a web page or list if you scroll. I noticed that when looking these screenshot comparisons to Access, that has solved this issue quite nicely using a very thin stripe on the side of the screen. Using these you also see your position on the page. They are like sliders, but probably without the sliding function. Pre Screens Vs. ACCESS Screens: Rematch « PrePoint […]
