    Are there any apps out there to make an icon/mini-app to launch a URL? So that it will appear like an icon in the launcher? I figure someone must have made this, but an (admittedly quick) google search failed. Thanks!

    Really? I use it on my 680, I never noticed any issue. I thought all it was doing is launching Blazer and navigating to a URL.

    Yes. It affects *some* Treos. It was a problem acknowledged by the developer, and causes the 5-way to do 2 "presses" of work for every press you enter, in *every* program. There used to be a thread in the TC LudusTech forum about it, but it's disappeared, possibly due to the recent "combination of forums" that is going on in the Developers Corner.

    In that thread LudusAdmin did at one point announce a further beta (NOT the one that is on the Ludus site now) that LudusAdmin would email out to interested parties and may have fixed the problem. I missed the announcement of the email offer, never saw any reply as to whether it actually worked, and LudusAdmin doesn't now respond to queries about it. Pity, but with a free program one can't complain.

    If anyone else ever got that beta, and it worked, I would love to hear from you!

    cheers

    PS: one "workaround", if one does have this problem, is to create all the links you want, then delete Sharklinks. The links once created work without the program.

    I can confirm that I never saw any issues with Sharklinks and the 680 and the 755. Great Program, I like to create a seperate tab in my launcher specific to URL's created in Sharklinks

    Yep -- thanks for the pointer. Works great on my 755p. I mostly use right now it to "anchor" PetitLauncher so I can launch URLs from it.

    Odd that it should have a bug like that, since it really shouldn't be active in the background most of the time. Perhaps the next release will fix it for those of you experiencing the problem.

    I'd rather just use a favorites button with my 755p.
