FitalyVirtual for the Tapwave Zodiac



FitalyVirtual – Applicability – Tapwave Zodiac

FitalyVirtual is a version of the Fitaly keyboard that works as a "skin" covering the virtual Graffiti area (also called the dynamic input area or DIA). It is modeled after the design of FitalyStamp.

This version of FitalyVirtual is an adaptation to the Tapwave Zodiac (model 1 or 2) device of the Clié version of FitalyVirtual. The general documentation refers to the Clié version and may contain occasional Clié-specific features. Zodiac-specific information is covered in this page.
