This app turns your phone into a controller for a spaceship in the "Shooty" app for Touchpad. It connects to a communication server via internet (you should have a WLAN around!) and lets you input the session code of the game you want to join. This is the number shown at the upper right of the Shooty app. Then you choose either absolute or relative steering mode and control your spaceship by rotating the phone and tapping the display. Absolute Mode: The spaceship will point the same direction your phone points to. Press the center of the screen to accelerate and the edge of the screen to shoot. Relative Mode: The spaceship will turn left as long as your phone is slanted to the left, same goes for turning right. Press the left side of the screen to accelerate and the right side to shoot. *Caution*: Only works together with the game "Shooty" installed on a Touchpad. Also, this is really beta, so our communication server might be down or busy most of the time... But please go ahead and give it a try anyway, its pretty fun when it works :) *Bug/Feature*: Multitouch & Palm SDK do not go thogether too well. Therefore, when shooting and accelerating at the same time, one of them might 'lock' and keep active when the screen is not pressed anymore. Just tap the control once to remove the lock.
