    This is the first demo for my new custom view, the SuperSeekbar.
    There are still some customization options I need to add, but I think it is a good idea to do a demo and get some feedback and bugs.

    This seekbar is designed to be accurate and give feedback on where you are on the seekbar.

    The special features of it are:
    - It pops up a balloon when u move the seekbar telling you the exact place you are
    - If you slide your finger onto the popup, it expands and gives you a zoomed seekbar allowing you to track even more accurately.

    It is good in scenarios like tracking on movies or songs.

    Does it work ok on your device? What else can be added improved?

    the idea of using two levels for fast and fine seeking is very useable and practical. What we or you should find out, how to make it optical visible to users, because it is a no so usual method.
    One further idea would be, to try to make date and time choosing controls, based on this idea. Imagine a time label - you click on it and you get an vertical time stack only with hours - you swype to right and make the finer time selection in 5 or 10 minutes steps...

    I agree with you, I am trying to find a method of affordance so the user will know how to find the second level.
    Also your second idea is also brilliant, it deserves to be done. I will see if I ever get that far.
