Most of the relevant information in DotWalker app you get by swiping two fingers. explore different sections by swiping two fingers from upward to downwards and downward and upward. Swipe two fingers from right to left to get to know the current address from the map. Swipe two fingers from left to right to repeat the information which you got by swiping two fingers from up to down or down to up.

  Cool.

  I also contacted him a little while ago, and made sure about arrangement for 
  importing loadstone database, and he was very helpful/interested in helping.

  Stay well
