    I recently bought a used VM Intercept and except for a couple of "hair-pullers", I like it (and LOVE the $25/mo no-contract plan). Both of the issues are related to the touchscreen. Is there a way to change starting an app to a double-tap or a long-tap instead of simply brushing against the icon? When doing a "finger-flip" scroll thru the apps screen its almost impossible to touch the screen such that I scroll the icons but NOT start any apps but for the one I'm looking for. Secondly, is there a way to adjust the scroll-rate on the apps menu? It's become a habit to flick my finger ever-so-lightly to scroll the screen (to try and avoid the above undesirable app-launch), but this causes the screen to scroll at a obscenely fast rate.. I haven't rooted the unit yet, but probably will soon, as I need to get the OpenVPN client on it to allow access to home/work vpns, and I understand it requires root, and I suspect any tweaks like I'm describing would require root also. I'm very familiar with Linux, but very new on Android.. Ideas??

    Thanks,
    LVDave

    Try Launcher Pro (free) or Launcher Pro Plus (paid) to edit the scrolling speeds (in the Launcher options its under Advanced Settings). ;)
