Touch-Click Mode Tutorial

To illustrate how trueDial works in Touch-Click Mode, consider the following example where we want to unlock the vault with the combination 32-48-16-21.

Tutorial01

Upon entering Cache Vault from the iOS Home screen, you are presented with the dial in its initial state.


Tutorial02

You can place your finger anywhere on the screen and slide your finger to start rotating the dial. For ease of use, we recommend placing your finger somewhere on the dial.

In this example we will start rotating in the counter-clockwise direction.


Tutorial03

You slide your finger to rotate the dial in the counter-clockwise direction until number 32 becomes the current number.


Tutorial04

In Touch-Click mode, as long as you keep your finger on the touch screen, no number is registered as the next code in the combination sequence.

To register number 32 as your first code in the combination sequence, stop turning the dial when the current number window displays 32 and lift your finger off the touch screen.

If you overshot 32 and moved the dial past the 33 marker, you can recover by simply turn back the dial before you take your finger off the screen.


Tutorial05

To enter the next number in the sequence, place your finger back on the touch screen and rotate the dial to get to the next number.

In this example, we will rotate the dial in the clockwise direction.


Tutorial06

Slide your finger and stop the dial when you see 48 in the current number window.

Again, if you overshot the number, you can simply turn back the dial.


Tutorial06.1

When you have the dial stopped at 48, lift your finger from the touch screen to register 48 as the next code in the sequence.


Tutorial07

With the number 48 in the current number window, place your finger back on the screen and turn the dial in the counter-clockwise direction. Stop the dial when you see 16 in the current number window.


Tutorial07.1

With number 16 in the current number window, lift your finger off the touch screen to register it as the next code.


Tutorial08

Place your finger back on the dial and slide your finger in the clockwise direction. Stop the dial when you see 21 in the current number window.


Tutorial09

Tutorial10

With the number 21 in the current number window, lift your finger from the touch screen and tap the unlock button at the bottom of the screen to unlock the vault.

NOTE: Make sure your finger tap, not slide, on the unlock button. As the entire touch screen surface is also used to turn the dial. Any slide movement on the unlock button will be interpreted as moving the dial not as an attempt to unlock.


Tutorial11

When the combination is entered correctly, the vault will open and display the content of the vault.


Tutorial12

When the combination is entered incorrectly, the vault will sound a buzz and illuminate the status indicator red to indicate incorrect combination. Once the status indicator is illuminated red, the dial reset its internal state and it is ready for a new combination sequence. You can now try to enter the combination again.


Tutorial13

To exit and lock the vault, press the Home button on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.


A few things to remember when operating trueDial in Touch-Click mode:

First, the direction of rotation is not significant. You can turn the dial in any direction at any time. trueDial in Touch-Click mode only recognizes a number as next code when you stop on that number and take your finger off the screen.

Second, just like trueDial in Default mode, the number of rotations is not significant in Touch-Click mode. You can turn the dial as many times as you like before you stop at the next numeral.

Finally, closer to mimic a mechanical single-dial lock, trueDial in Touch-Click mode does allow play across multiple numbers. Unlike Default mode, you can turn back the dial for as many times as you like.

We recommend that you not store any personal records in the vault until you can easily lock and unlock the vault. Use either tutorials as guide and practice until you are comfortable. Find your own routine and you should be able to master the trueDial interface with a bit of practice.

We hope you find Cache Vault to be a functional and reliable tool to manage your personal records. We welcome your questions and comments. You can e-mail us at support@cacheideas.com. Enjoy and remember to always take your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with you!
