    Thanks. I read that one too! Senior moment I guess... Even funnier is that I downloaded the transparent icons, but deleted the zip when I saw they were all blank!

    Off to try it out. Thanks again.

    I actually loved Launch Anywhere by ZZTech because it gave me access to all my apps from any program I was in without having to jump back to a launcher. The problem was that it was based on the ZLauncher kernel I guess and it would only work if ZLauncher was installed as well. ZLauncher is great and all but is becoming bloatware as it continues to increase in feature and size. I didn't like wasting all that space with ZL (I didn't use it) just to use LA.

    Propel/Initiate may be nice, but all the skins are terrible.

    I loved LauncherX, but the company that picked up development has done nothing with it in years, so it still looks old and stale. And because it isn't being developed, neither are skins.

    What else is there?
    Someoned mentioned over on 1src that launcherX was going to have a new version coming out soon.

    Initiate seems good although again I don't like the skins for it.

    Last I heard from Jeff Gibson, he was working on a WM app. So unless, he is working on a WM version of Launcher X, I don't think Launcher X will see any work anytime soon. Jeff is interested in projects that enable him to make a living. While updating older Palm OS programs would likely give him some revenue stream, it is unlikely that the opportunity cost for not working on something else that likely will yield a higher return, will be worth it.

    Yes. Jeff has all but abandoned LX. We have been complaining about that just today at launcherxplanet.com. I really don't see why he purchased the rights to the app if he really had no intention of updating it. Now no one else can. Would be nice if he would just release it as open source and let someone else pick up development.

    LOL... It was mentioned that LauncherX 2.0 would have a beta released in "about a month" .... in early 2007.

    Initiate skins do completely suck. That is why I don't even bother with it. I am a sucker for eye candy.

    Assuming you tried it, how did the invisible icon project work out for ya?
    If you found my post useful then please sign up for a Dropbox Account, I could use the extra 250mb of storage.

    HOW TO: Zip/Unzip via Pre/Pixi using Terminal
    HOW TO: Modify DTMF audio (webOS 1.4.5 or earlier)

    Not as well as I had hoped. I work in (3x3) 123 mode. So, I extracted 9 Transparent icons and renamed them to my first 9 apps when in the "All" category. This worked, but left the app names on the display. Sure, I can disable icon names for the desired "empty screen", but I would like to see them once I type the first letter of the app I want to run. Further confusion resulted when I disabled icon names because any app with a transparent icon (and no icon name) is entirely invisible!

    What this comes down to is the addition of an option in Treo Launcher to show no icons until a letter is pressed. There is a rather convoluted way to (possibly) make this all work with Apt, but it's more effort then I felt like giving. Let's just hope development continues and this feature can be added.

    Is there any way to have the clock under the date appear in 12h format instead of 24h format?

    Keep tapping it and it will cycle through the various displays.

Now I plan to fix that eventually but just don't have the time right now. AND it will be tedious to do. .png transparencies seem so much cleaner IMO...

    Any chance of that happening, or is that merely a limitation of the Palm OS, not the coding of Lnchr?

    How did you change your My Centro and Quick Tour icons? I tried, and they wouldn't change.
    I'm checking you Jabronis into the SmackDown hotel.

    I think this is somewhere in this thread, but in short, use the same method as the rest (I'm sure you knew that), but name the icons Tutorial and MyTreoTO with whatever extension you're icon is. Remember, these are CaSe sensitive so type exactly as shown!

    Yep. What he said.

    The problem is the actual name of he file isn't always what is displayed in the launcher. For the ones I had trouble with, I would just drag them on the Info icon in Launcher X and it gave me the correct name to use.

    I can't seem to change 4cast icon. Is it because of the #4? Is there a way around this?

    I have mine named 4cast.gif and it works fine. I do recall having some issues with TL recognizing the file one time, and I had to delete the icon file, do a soft reset, then copy the icon to the card and reinstall icons in TL. Never did figure out what caused the problem.

    Such a pity - 2 minor updates of this program in the past 18 months, the last one over 5 months ago. It looked so good - and then...

    Horace, where are you?

    I would certainly like to see a couple changes and enhancements, but knowing the release history I still paid for this app a couple weeks ago.

    There is no predetermined Lastday for Palm devices and software! I'm guessing a lot of you don't know what Lastday is without following the link. It's an "old" flick. Old software, for an older Palm, for a much older me! Age is relative...

    Paging Horace... TC to Horace...

    Can someone confirm that the icons are out of memory after a reset. So I would have to launch Icons to set them again?

    Yes, you have to relaunch icons after a reset
