Hi Jerry,

i am not the developer of altMobileResizer. The developer is Chipp Walters.

See my answer below

I think this is because it was already created 2012 or 2013 and it was developed mainly for iOS app development.

Thats also my problem currently. I alos would like to develop in a higher resolution than 320x480.
So far altMobileResizer allowed me to avoid setting the fullscreenmode.

Maybe this is a question for Chipp.

I just wanted to know how many people are still using or may would like to use it. I then would ask Chipp if it would be okay if i or someone else would enhance the plugin.


But if there is no interest this would not make sense at all.


I´ve also asked yesterday how the people on the list are handling all different screenresolutions in their mobile apps. But so far no one replied.
