Here is a good tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHo-pewqFKI

It is for iphone, but it does not matter, same stands for BB.

And by the way, do not forget to  update your Flash Pro CS5, because in first version Y-axis is inverted.

Re: Accelerometer Sensor in Blackberry Playbook And BB10

Anyone know if the Accelerometer values in the Z10 is any different from that of the Playbook? i.e. if I tilt the same amount, will I get the same values?


Thanks! I wish I can get an actual Z10 to test my app with, but alas it's out of my reach...

Re: Accelerometer Sensor in Blackberry Playbook And BB10

I got seemingly differing values when playing with it as a control system back in September on my DA


The SDK has changed a lot since then and not tried since


It may be an illusion owing to device size I guess but it seemed I had to tilt far more on DA than PlayBook


My DA is out for swapping for a Z10 LE so won't be able to run any tests until they send me the Z10
