    I think a virtual trackball app for the storm would be neat. Or at least (and maybe there's a way to do this now) a way to change how far offset the mouse cursor is from where your finger is on the screen.

    But, isn't your finger kind of like the cursor the trackball would be using? I think what I just said probably won't make sense, but that's what was going through my head.

    It makes sense to me...unless you are in a browser. If you're not in cursor mode, it can be a real pain to click on links. If you are in cursor mode, then the cursor is (for me) to close to my finger and i still can't see what i'm clicking on.
    If we had a trackball app, then you wouldn't need the cursor mode and also browsers like Bolt might actually be useable on the Storm.....

    The compatibility mode works like that kind of. In the screen area for trackball apps slide your finger up, down, left, right and it moves the cursor like you are rolling a trackball.

    Thats your problem. Dont use the bolt browser. It still has lots of issues.

    What we REALLY need is a tab key on the keyboards, or ease of use when filling out online forms.
