    Optical pad needs to be more sensative. Takes forever to scroll down lists and I have to swipe like 100 times. Is there anyway to increase sensitivity? There has got to be a setting some where similar to Windows settings for your PC mouse.

    I'm a bit surprised there isnt' an option to turn up the sensitivity as you would the scroll speed of a mouse.
    Not that I use it much but it comes in handy when scrolling through an email trying to make a correction.

    I feel like the optical track pad could be so useful, but its so slow. I always goto use it to highlight a misspelled word, and it takes forever.

    This needs a fix.


    UPDATE: so just after i posed i read around, and then i went to play with the trackpad. If you just use your finger tip to scroll over it, it will scroll very slow. If you run your finger over long way so its covered longer, it scrolls super fast.

    For 2 minutes of play it seems very inaccurate but im sure after use unless a fix comes along ill get better at selecting exactly what i want at a good speed. Right now super slow or too fast.

    if you just move your finger slowly and fully across it will go through the whole document very fast

    YES
    HERE
    Are there any app's that utilize this feature?
    I would like to find a app that when the device is sleeping and you run you finger over the optical pad it awakens the device.

    Anything like that?

    Thanks
