Virtual Cursor Questions

Sometime the clicks and simulated keystrock don't work, why?
There is no mouse in Smartphone system, so many application for smartphone don't support mouse control, they will have no response to virtual cursor too. The situation of simulated keystrock is the same.
Why sometime the virtual cursor disappear?
Some software (especially games) write data directly to screen or refresh screen many times in a single second, working with these application, virtual cursor may disappear. But the cursor is still there and functional. It may appear again when you move the cursor.
Why I can't move the cursor in some situation?
This problem may occur in 1.0v verison. Because this version uses normal keyboard procedure, it can not receive keystrock when the cursor lost the focus. The sulution is to long press 0 key to active cursor again, or switch the focus to cursor by some other task manager program.
