Using iSlideRule

The iSlideRule app has several features that aid in operating the features built into the application.  iSlideRule recognizes different touches and gestures as unique commands to the application.

When launched, the iSlideRule app comes up appearing similar to the image below:

There are six major regions presented in the display of the application:
  1. Labels - Located on the left side of display, the labels show the active, configured scales currently in use.
  2. Cursor - The cursor is a vertical block with the hairline displayed to the right of the labels. It can display numeric values or not, configured in the Settings.  The cursor may be moved independently of the top and bottom rules and the slider.  It can be directly dragged within the view-able area of the slide rule, or dragged to either the left or right hand side of the display to scroll the left or right portion of the slide rule into view.
  3. Top Rule - The top rule consists of the five scales at the top of the display.  There are three groups of scales on this rule.  Double-tapping the rule makes the next group of five scales automatically active.
  4. Slider - The center five scales on the slide rule are located on the slider. The slider scrolls independently of the top and bottom rules, but can be optionally locked together with them when moving the top or bottom rules. Double-tapping the slider makes the next group of five scales automatically active. Like the top rule, the slider also has three groups of five scales that may be configured in the settings.
  5. Bottom Rule - The bottom rule of the slide rule consists of an additional five scales. As with the slider and top rule, the bottom rule has three groups of five scales which may be configured in settings, and each group activated by double-tapping the rule.
  6. Settings and Information Buttons - These buttons (which may not visible at all times, rotate the device to make them appear if they are not present in the current view) provide for accessing this documentation and also for configuration of the application features and the scales to be used within the application.
Each region responds to touches in its own way.  Please refer to each region's individual documentation for more information.
