Smile Dingo 1.0 – Everything’s changed! I can’t find anything! Please help!

Dingo has a number of changes to the UI. Depending on what you used, you may have to look elsewhere for it. Review the Release Notes for some initial clues (note that http://www.entourageedge.com/support..._Final_826.pdf has screenshots of some of the new features, including some of the things I point out below). For a video guide to the new features (including using the Reader and Journal), watch the videos here: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...72C68AB89D108B.

Here’s some that I found after looking for them:

1. On the eReader, double-tapping the Camera icon doesn’t display the whole page on the LCD. Instead, tap the Camera icon once, then tap once anywhere on the eInk side.

2. Can’t figure out how to toggle Annotate mode? Use the “Tools “Menu at the bottom of the eInk side and tap the “Annotate menu item.

3. Don’t see the tool bar at the top of the eInk side? Tap the circle in the top left corner of the eInk side. Most functions appear in the “Menu at the bottom of the eInk side now, though.

4. Where’s the “Store? You’ll find it in the Applications list now. Alternatively, tap “Library application and then “Library at the top left of the LCD screen and pick “Store from the dropdown list.

5. How do I go to the “App store? Go to the “Store (see above)

6. Where’d the “Lock and “Wireless functions go? The “Lock function has been added to the “Power Control desktop widget (far right). Alternatively, you can use the "Lock Screen" application or create a shortcut to it on your desktop. For “Wireless (wifi, Bluetooth, VPN, etc.), press the “Menu button, then “Settings then “Network Controls.

7. When I press the “Switch button on the eInk side, nothing happens. The Reader and Journal no longer automatically start when you boot up the eDGe. To read a book, tap the “Reader app icon on the LCD side. To write a Journal, tap the “Journal app icon. The “Switch button now works like ALT-TAB on a PC – it cycles through the apps you have running on the eInk side. If you press and hold the button, the eInk wallpaper is displayed instead (great for privacy, or if your boss is snooping )

You can also toggle from the annotate icon in the top menu bar.

We are supposed to be able to set our own wallpaper on the eInk side, right? How do we do that?

I LOVE this new feature, which is most cool because it's always "on." Open the Gallery (apps list) and select a photo. In the upper right-hand corner of the image, choose "Set As." A pop-up will ask you to choose wallpaper, ereader wallpaper, etc.

Go into the Gallery app and select a picture. When you tap and hold you get a popup menu. Tap "Set as", then "Reader Wallpaper" (the other options are Contact icon and Tablet (i.e. LCD) Wallpaper).

Thanks, guys. Two things I've noticed: the first is that flight frenzy and Zeus quest are no longer working for me, they open and freeze then give me a "force close " button. I tried reinstalling to no avail. The second is that Wifi Analyzer is now full screen! How awesome is that?

Try uninstalling the two apps, reboot, and install fresh. If that doesn't work for one or both, uninstall them, rotate the LCD 90 degrees, and then try installing them again (I think it was NiaTrue, or pat.indie, that has found installing in landscape is sometimes the key for some apps).
