Ticket #1936 (new defect)
PIN entry should default to numeric input
|Reported by:||rost||Owned by:||zecke|
|Severity:||major||Keywords:||keyboard pin numeric|
|Blocking:||Estimated Completion (week):|
I got a new Freerunner, updated to the 2008.8 release and wanted to use it.
After starting up the PIN dialog presented only lower case letters. I think in almost all cases PINs are numeric. So it would be much more userfriendly, if you could default to numeric input.
Some more rant:
I did not see any clue how to switch to numeric input. After despairingly clicking around I was finally switching off my Freerunner and wanted to throw it away. After some googling I read all the documentation about the Openmoko keyboard and finally are able to use it but I really do not like it.
I seriously doubt that hiding essential features behind "gestures" (switching input modes, whitespace, backspace) is a terrible idea and will make most end users hate you...
Setting Severity to major because this bug makes the Openmoko essentially unusable for normal users.
