App freezes I have used Prolific drivers for windows7 to do serial port communication. I'm trying to do same thing on my Micromax mobile and Datawind ubislate 9ci tablet. When I start the app, it successfully recognizes that device is connected but then buttons and text boxes get freezed. Why?

No developer support I have been trying to get in touch with someone at Prolific regarding this API. No response from the sales@... email listed here, and their support page on their website doesn't work. The no-root API is very welcome, but without any support its not something I'd choose for my projects. Please contact me at pvs A.t. gearandroid D.o.t com

Fails with 2 USB ports occupied If the PL2303 chip device is the only device plugged into a USB port, then it seems to work once the settings option is clicked. If a second device is being used or is plugged into my android tablet, the connection is discontinued or not available. For me this means no external keyboard can be used concurrently. As an added thought, I really need a gps driver and would like to see one in the future.

Works with Maplin USB to Serial ZP43W Return key on the keyboard would be a nice feature.
