  • One day, It just started working.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4. I was messing with the Air view feature seeing what apps support it. I tested Opera with it and didn't notice any difference. I eventually gave up and turned Air view off.

    Some time later in opera, I noticed links were being highlighted when I went to touch links. So I found out that if I hovered my finger over links, they would highlight. I tested this on menu items and other objects that would pop up info on hover. Menu items would drop down, info boxes would pop up. It was all WORKING! FINALLY!

    I went around testing Dolphin, Chrome and the default browser. They did not react to hover. It only worked in Opera. I don't recall updating Opera recently so I didn't think it was a feature Opera just added, unless they can do that without me updating manually (don't have auto updating enabled).

    So now a week later and that feature is gone. I've went all over the settings in my phone. I don't know what happened.

    Was I dreaming?

  • I don't know how it works exactly for capacitive touch airview, but it has always worked with airview for the S-Pen.

  • Having used a Wacom tablet (which the Samsung pen technology is based on), the device knows where the pen is as long as it's within maybe 1 cm. of the surface, and you'll see the cursor follow it around. I've seen hover effects on my Acer tablet, but only when using the arrow keys on my external keyboard to emulate a mouse. Sorry, no idea on the Galaxy Tab series.
