View Full Version : Map pinch zoom on Android
16 Apr 2012, 7:13 AM
Hi, I am testing a packaged application on an Android 2.3.6 and 4.0.3 device. In both, the pinch to zoom does not work. I also notice on the 4.0.3 device there are no built in zoom controls on the map, but there are on the 2.3.6 device. Can anyone shed any light on these observations? Thanks

Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.x) supports multitouch ontouch events now, where as previous versions like Honeycomb (3.x) and Gingerbread (2.3.x) did not, hence Google maps is now controllable via pinch to zoom now. As a result, Google Maps does not serve zoom controls to Ice Cream Sandwich devices, just like they don't serve them to iOS devices. Earlier versions of Android must use the zoom control buttons.
