I still think it is best if they reappear only when I lift up my finger (not when it stops moving).

Not big difference, but you're right ... it's better. Wink

I find it annoying when the icons appear when I lift my finger anywhere, even after I moved or scrolled the map, but - customer is always right Smile

The most important is to hide action icons as soon as the map is moving ... After that all is good for me ! Wink

If you wish ... Smile
Action icons are not typical case on CMS screen or I'm wrong ?
Why not to show icons on compass screen and CMS at all ? Very Happy

Even customers cannot agree on what is best Wink So you should take our input with a grain of salt...

Personally I can live without any icons. The main function of the icons (as I see it) is to serve as a guide to (new) users (or old users new to touch screens) (or users with new toys with different screen sizes) where to press to make things happen.

What could be even better training would be to have the whole active touch area highlight briefly when it is touched (half a second or less). Then it is easy to see and learn where exactly the boundaries of that area are.

Anyway I am more interested in the size of the system fonts...

As I see it, visible icons should help to touch screen for needed function Smile
Yep, app long time users can live without it. New smartphone/tablet users are sometimes confused what is where.

For users who dont want action icons there is already possibility to show "always" or "never" in settings ... Smile
Wish is only for setting " hide icons after 3 secs" and it 's useful to have a quick look for icons (icons not exactly at the same position in portrait or landscape mode) ... For me it's just necessary to hide icons as long the map is moving. Wink
Icons in compass mode or CMS mode is an other talk, maybe later in an other wish ... Smile

http://www.trekbuddy.net/dev/2016-01-26/trekbuddy.apk

- action icons are shown whenever wherever your thumb is lifted
- added atribute size to font element, it overrides predefined system font size; value is pixels (raw)
Example:
Code:
<font name="medium" system="400000" size="41"/>

I have android 2 phones with similar density, so I still do not know if the font size should be specified as raw pixels density-independent pixels Sad I'm charging Playbook but it will take long, so here is apk Smile

Thanks, i test this last version ...
It's OK, but i still think it should be better if action icons are hidden while the map is moving (map not obstruct by icons)
When map stop moving, icons could be shown 3 secs or less or not shown ... no problem ! Wink
