    Is there a app that will allow a Droid user the ability to just tap on the screen when off?
    Now you have to press the power button everytime this device goes to sleep.
    With the iPhone you can just tap on the screen and it comes on.
    On the BB Storm you press on the screen and it to comes on.
    The Droid you have to press the power button???

    Is it possible to generate a work around it there isn't one?

    Thanks

    Not that I know of. As a former iPhone user, I don't recall being able to just tap the screen to get it to power on. I thought I had to press the power button just as I do on the Droid.

    I should have said press the home button with is on the front below the screen.
    I didn't have to press the power button on my iPhone.

    Maybe its the time out option on the Droid that is frustrating to me...
    30 seconds to 2 minutes, and then 10 minutes.
    I would rather have 1 to 3 and 5 minutes 10, as an option...

    on the DROID, you can either hit the power button, slide the keyboard open, or if the keyboard is already open, tap any key on the keyboard.
