Keyboard shortcuts, reliable location selection

Post by par » Tue Dec 13, 2011 1:35 pm

Hey, guys!

I need your help again with location selection process.

The problem is the following.
We need to make sure, the user can go all the way to his home from installing to watching the weather.
If connection gets broken at some step, we need to handle the problem gracefully.
This is very important.

I hope I have made location selection reliable in this release, but I'm not sure.

So please, if you have time, take a moment and imagine yourself in place of our new user.
And then go all his way.
Try to turn off Internet connection after or in the middle of each step.
Please let me know if you to find yourself locked inside YoWindow user interface.


New keyboard shortcuts.

Left, Right - 10 minutes back and forth (try holding the key)
Ctrl-Left, Ctrl-Right - day back/forth (try holding the key)
Enter - Live
Tab - Show/Hide user interface (hey, Fred, the Tab is working now ;) )
1, 2, 3 - Show/Hide Moment Bar, Inspector and Forecast Panel respectfully (unfortunately we cannot save your choice)


The link to Chrome edition RC is now in the header of the forum.

Herman, you have found a verty important bug!
Thanks!
I have fixed it - see the new build.

And I'm grateful for the laborous testing of YoWindow in poor connection state you have done.
That was very important.
Thank you.
