Demo of a Zoomable Game Board

For my next Android tutorial, I am working on a demo app for a game board.  The app displays a grid of squares that represents a game board. The grid can be zoomed in or out and moved. Touch events are triggered when squares are touched. Regular and long press are handled.

Here is a short video of the demo app in action. This was recorded with the “Show Touches” option on in Android Settings. So the small white circles that appear are the touch points.

The source code and a write up for this demo will be available here on this blog in the next week or two. (Update – here is the link: Android Example of a Zoomable Game Board.)

If you are interested in how I made the demo video, see my earlier blog note: Making Promo Videos for Your Android App.
