ad at bottom of emulator blocks app controls
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:59:49 PM »
Just finished downloading YouWave and the Refraction Lite apk to try both.  Unfortunately an Amazon ad covers up the app controls at the bottom of the emulator.  I'm not sure where the ad is coming from but I don't see it on my phone.  I haven't found a way to make the ad go away.

Sorry for the confusion. As a matter of fact, the banner with Amazon notice is the notice area that we push out notices to users. This area does not overlap with the phone screen area. The menu control buttons are on the top.

In our upcoming releases, we will remove this banner.

I wasn't referring to the device emulation buttons like (Back, Menu, Home and Search) which are at the top but rather the controls in the game app.  The ad banner is covering the game buttons Mirror, Prism and Reset.

Hmm. The banner at the bottom should not cover the game area. We tested this app. Here is the screenshot. Are you using a different Refrection Lite from the one you can download from the Market?

I'm using version 1.2.7.  Although I can copy the YouWave emulator screen I haven't found a way to paste it here. I have attached a jpeg.  My Tosh screen resolution is 1280 x 800.

Looks like the latest version is 1.5.2. Can you try the new one? The issue here is that very often developers fix bugs regarding the screen rendering on different screens. YouWave is one type of Android with a portrait screen size of 480x640. Apparently this app renders incorrectly for this screen size. And looks like this issue has been fixed in newer versions.

I haven't been able to find anything newer than 1.4 which has the same problem and I don't know how to get the lastest version as an apk file from the market or from my phone to my computer.

Update: I now have the most recent version which seems to work!
