I receive a lot of requests about swipe & scroll or to open directly Google calendar application at a selected view.
Well… bad news… it’s not possible.
For swipe & scroll, it is not available in current Android SDK (1.5 to 2.2). HTC use their own launcher to manage swipe. With regular Android launcher, it’s not possible.
Now, it works with ‘LauncherPro’ and ‘ADW Launcher’.
For example, HTC Sense is capable of scrolling widget, but HTC doesn’t want to publish any API (interface) to let other developpers create scrollable widgets working on HTC Sense Home. This is a ‘plus’ for their phone, they don’t want to loose that. So, this is the reason why you’ll NEVER seen any 3rd party scrollable widgets working in HTC Sense… it is simply impossible.
For application opening, it is not possible to select a view. Most views are internals, and all we can do is open the application. We don’t have access to internal view (such as event, week or day view in Google calendar application or gmail messages for Pure calendar).
Long taps management is impossible too (handle by the Android OS to remove widgets).
Show informations on the lock screen: Impossible without re-developping a full lock screen application which is VERY difficult because Android SDK is not adapted to do it.
I hope that’s clear, but there is a lot of limitations for widgets… 😦
