PADD is the name of my kindle, after the Star Trek device. Nothing sinister there.

Oh, the 'Booklet' version shows the device name rather than the application name.
Nice touch (no pun intended).

Does touching the name bring up the Device Info panel?

Actually, the Booklet simply does not modify the status bar.

So the homescreen status bar shows the device name, and the kUAL Booklet doesn't change that.
But if you use the Replace Store Button function, then you can launch the Booklet directly from within a book, and show the book name instead.

@NiLuJe: All these extensions/add-ins/apps do behave properly. The only issue is the resolution and the user interface. The higher resolution of the PW3(and KV, KOA) is not utilised. It's also more difficult for the user to view or touch the button icons.

Of course, some extensions do not have this issue:
  1. KUAL(obviously)
  2. Kterm (though the characters in the matchbox keyboard icons look smaller and maybe a fresh set of larger icons would be useful)
  3. Gargoyle (though fixed size images in some games look smaller)

@krupped: Thanks for checking . At least simpler layouts render properly, that's reassuring.

@nasser: In CM's case, since the buttons are actually bitmaps, yeah, I'd expect something to be off on that front, but the extent of the breakage shown in the screenshots seems to point to more widespread issues, so, no idea, really :/. And Java UI code is definitely waaaaaay out of my comfort zone ^^.

There is a larger keyboard for kTerm somewhere around here.
I don't have a clue about a link to it, but I use it myself.

@knc1: nope, it doesn't open the device info, and thanks

If there is anything anyone else would like me to try, I'm comfortable writing java.

That may help, CM is written in Java and the Java expert that wrote it has moved on to other things.

It is in a public repository (somewhere) if you want to look at it.
(Maybe the first post has a link to the repo. I have forgotten.)

Hi,

Can you confirm this doesnt work with Kindle Oasis?
G0B0GC Kindle Oasis WiFi KOA

If so any idea when (if ever?)
When I do try and open it I just get application error the selected application could not be started.

The message is correct, it does not work on KOA.
