What Do You Think of “Smart Scroll?”


As many of you probably know, yesterday was the announcement of Samsung’s new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. With it came a plethora of software features that will be new to Samsung’s proprietary version of Android. One of these features was dubbed “Smart Scroll.” The phone will first detect that a user is indeed looking at it, and you can then slightly tilt it to top or bottom or scroll up or down the page.

This is a feature we have never seen natively on iOS, but we have seen a couple tweaks and apps that support it. Of those is “PhyScroll,” a deprecated tweak that is  not currently compatible with iOS 6. With yesterday’s announcement, however, I wouldn’t be surprised to see that tweak updated, or another released to take its place. Is that something you would be interested in seeing? How do you feel about tilt scrolling?
