If that user refuses to test or participate, what's the big deal, let him figure it out.

 


I never said anything about them refusing to particpiate...

This "reviewer" is one of the folks who recently found eScreens in BBX.

Anyway, all that's a side-topic/red-herring, back on topic...

There is not an escreen setting for what he desires to do.


Are you being entirely honest about this, or are you simply trying to shut-down all dicussion in this area?

If you're worried about it being discussed in this official community, then perhaps you/others could share what you know elsewhere?

Apparently all that's needed by Anandtech, is a way to keep the screen on while the browser's in the foreground.
Apparently they've already checked eScreens thoroughly, & couldn't see any way to keep the screen on...
Although supposedly the primary reviewer only has the Z10 for a few days at a time before it rotates to someone else.

jalyst, no, sorry you misunderstood me. I just know there is not a setting or toggle or function to keep the screen on in escreens.

Not trying to shut anything down, other than encouraging others to explore or edit their escreens, for the same reasons I and others have stated above.


This is a function that can be developed through third party applications.

He seems to say he's pretty busy right now.

Probably need to find another developer... As he said, this is not a big issue to maintain in an app.
