Tap to activate Pan & Zoom is killing us in user testing.
The following features would provide a seamless navigation scheme:
* Autoplay Pan & Zoom; and
* Hot Zones for Pro Edition
Are either of these features on the horizon?
Also, for your pan & zoom comment, I suggest taking a look at how National Geographic handles this. They have a nice little overlay on the pan and zoom with a clear indication to the reader of how to interact with it, that disappears on tap. Very nicely done. It's not auto-play, but it is an effective way to guide readers.
