I’m not a big fan of touch screens. If RSI is a genuine concern just from using a mouse, then all of that tapping on an UNYIELDING piece of glass can not possibly be good for your bones. Nevertheless, as these things are everywhere now, one must find a way to adapt.
However, I have noticed that all touch screens are NOT created equal! Unless my phone freezes up, anytime I touch the surface to send instructions, it responds the very first time. But, and this is an increasing source of frustration, I have to touch my MC control repeatedly (often more than 4 taps) to engage a particular control. That’s if I can actually get the control in question at all. Lots of times, I’ll select the SOFT KEYS tab and end up activating one of the 2 tracks closest to it instead. Other times, repeated tapping on the UP/DN Scroll buttons gets no response at all! All of this EXTRA TAPPING only increases the pain in my fingers after an 6 - 8 hour session! So, this is no small issue for which to find a better solution!
I finally figured out that part of the problem was that my hands were too dry for the sensors to respond.So, I’m using more lotion. But who wants to have to constantly “grease up” just to work on a mix? My other option is to use a small pencil eraser. It works precisely and far more efficiently (98% response). But now you’re constantly having to pick it up just to activate the controls.
Anyone here have any tips for consistently efficient navigating strategies using touch screens? Is it any better on Tango, MC Pro, id of Nuage?
