Fix for slow-responding taps on an iPhone 3GS iOS devices
When I got my iPhone 3GS, I played with all the new features, like everyone else. Then they wore off and I was back to normal use. While playing games, specifically Wild West Pinball, it seemed like all the taps weren't registering properly. Also, when I pressed both flippers at the same time, there was a slight delay.

I thought this was a glitch in the game. But as I used more multi-touch games, it seemed something was wrong with my phone. Before resorting to complaining to Apple, I thought of what could be different from using my old iPhone. Of course, I had turned on the Zoom feature (in the Accessibility section of General Preferences) for no reason other that it was cool that I could do it.

When I turned off the Zoom feature, the taps went back to normal and the multi-touch taps respond quickly again.

Thanks for posting this! I was having the same problem with slow flipper response with Pinball Dreams and thought it was a problem with the app with the new 3.0 software. I turned off zoom, but would rather be able to use it. I wonder if there is a way for game programmers to turn off the zoom feature while the game is running.

I guess this is an iPhone-only hint.... :(

I have the same problem, but my iPod touch's OS 3.0 General settings doesn't have an Accessibility section.
