Struggling to feel confident with LC mobile dev

Speaking of SivaSiva, which you can get from both Android and Apple app 
stores, look for Path to Siva in the reading section. This is a short book 
and most pages scroll.

The trick to smooth scrolling on mobile requires only two things: use 
native scrollers and turn on acceleratedRendering. The scrollers can be 
created by script or you can use the widgets in the tool palette. I 
recently posted my scroller script in the forums, you can probably find it. 
It wasn't long ago.

I've made several mobile apps with scrollers but they are all distributed 
privately. But in about a month there will be one in the app stores.
