    Multitouch works for me - at least pinch zoom in the webbrowser works just like before.

    Definitely working for me. Now working on Google Maps too which is handy.

    And of course on the main screens!

    Have you guys tried multi-touch in apps from Android market? No? Well it doesn't work.. HTC is bullshitting us. I'm never going to buy from them again.

    In answer to Wello

    Does it not depend on if the app is designed to work with multi-touch? The programs google have designed - such as maps - home screen - browser etc... support multi touch and it works - so the capability is there.

    However if a 3rd party developer doesnt code for multi touch google can't force them to change their code - one of the joys of an "open source" system as oppossed to apples very "syndicated" system.

    I have, when I owned an iPhone, come across quite a few apps in that that didn't support multi-touch - its the developers choice to either support it, or go for an easy life and ignore it.

    Well I tried out the multi-touch in all the multi-touch test apps I could find.. It even said in some that multi-touch was supported but nothing happened when I pressed 2 fingers against the screen. Iif it's a coding issue, then it's HTC's coding issue. I've sent an email to them so they can explain the "problem" themselves.

    Which apps are you using Wello? Do the browser, photo gallery, maps and so on work?

    I have a question, multi touch and pinch zoom means the same thing?
    if that's the case, I can't do either one...
    All I can do to zoom is to double press on browser, gallery, and google map..
    can anyone help fix this for me? thanks :)
