Today after a long time i have found some time ,no have forcefully allocated some time for blogging .I am in a great enthusiasm to speak a lot of things ,most of them geeky :)and rest are hmm,...
I am in NOKIA R&D(Bangalore) from june 16th,and have been working seriously on FreOffice's advanced presentations using the accelerometer which is present on the N900 .Life was little tough in the beginning of the project ,dint exactly know where to start and how to plan the project .After some ground work, I got to know that i had to learn DBus for this project.Learnt it in a few days and started with the implementation part.Now,after finishing the project i feel very happy to look back at the functionality developed by me .Its really cool and changing slides during the presentation has become really nice and convenient for the presenter.Just the tilt of the N900 moves the slides.To make it more user friendly ,i have given the response in terms of the vibration to indicate the slide movement.Later i was asked to implement the scrolling of the pages using the accelerator.This time i was well equipped with the previous experience so did it much faster and obviously better.Now,scrolling the pages on the FreOffice is a beauty ,you dont need to touch the screen ,Guys!! just bending makes it work.Amazing rite??I was very happy for the same when my product owner complemented that "reading has become fun with this functionality :)".
have a look at some of the screenshots from my N900
the button accelerator scrolling symbolized by 'a' on the right bottom corner is the icon for enabling/disabling the accelerator based scrolling.All the documents which can be opened on the FreOffice can be scrolled .Presently its in OFF state.
After clicking 'a'
This functionality can be used in both fullscreen and normal mode ,but this video is taken only in the fullscreen mode
