Tapwave releases Zodiac 1.1 update
The company says it's a direct response to customer requests and feedback. The updated software brings some changes to customer experience while using the Palm OS based gaming device:

  • Background Music Play: With the 1.1 Software Update you can play music in the background while playing games, viewing photos, managing your organizer or doing just about anything with your Zodiac console. An icon has been added to the status bar to provide one-tap access to music playback controls. In addition the Music|Preferences dialog features controls to customize background play behavior.

  • System-wide Quick Launch: The Quick Launch feature lets you launch your favorite applications using the action buttons. With the 1.1 Software Update, Quick Launch works system-wide: simply hold down the home button while pressing the selected action button. This “chording” feature ensures that Quick Launch is always available but never interferes with gameplay or other applications. In addition, Quick Launch settings are now made in the Quick Launch panel in the Prefs category. For users who still want “one button” Quick Launch from the Home screen, that feature is available in Home|Preferences dialog.

  • Open Home to Last View: Some users expressed a desire to return to the last category viewed (instead of the top-level Home Screen) when they press the Home button. To allow this, we have included a new “Open to:” preference in the Home|Preferences dialog. You can select from three options: Home Screen (the standard radial menu), All Applications (the three column list view), or Last View (the view shown the last time the user exited Home).

  • “Wake to Music” in the Clock now plays the full song instead of stopping playback after 1 minute.
  • Four new alarm sounds and enhanced MIDI capabilities to support downloaded alarm sounds.
  • The console no longer sleeps if timing an event using the Clock Timer.
  • The ability to delete the current photo without having to navigate through the text-only delete dialog.
  • The ability to advance and reverse through Photo slideshows using the trigger buttons.
  • Enhanced Bluetooth discovery dialogs that cache previously seen devices.
  • Console no longer wakes when inserted in cradle.
  • Charging LED more accurately reflects charging state.
