    Why not just put the 5x5 iBar in place of the Favorites tab. Isn't that pretty much what it's doing anyway? It would just be a much nicer presentation of a Favorites screen. Granted, you lose the ease of importing from the standard Palm phone app's favorites, but once a user has their iBar setup, it would look and perform so much better.

    With the 5 tabs currently in TP, the Favorites tab really seems redundant to the iBar and a waste of a tab... Just my $.02.

    I am not sure - I personally like to use the favourites for contacts, while the i-Bar works as a mini-launcher for apps & web pages.

    Most (if not all) of my contacts dont have a picture anyway, so they look much better on the speed-dial wide buttons (text).

    I would want to be able to access them in the least possible number of button presses possible. My thoughts on why not to use the down and down on the 5 way:
    1. unless you know the program, you won't find it AKA not new user friendly, not spouse friendly.
    2. I'm sure you would want the down-down to put you at the top of the 5X5 (I choose this size for convenience) rather than the dead center of the block. No location on that block should be more than 4 button presses away (2 up/down and 2 left/right)
    3. some users will find that they just want to start on that screen.

    And these are just my thoughts on how other phone apps worked and what was quick to use. If it requires more button presses than typing 2 or 3 letters to get the name and 1 or 2 presses to get to the number and dial, it's not going to be used all that much or at least I won't use it.

    Just some rambling.

    The redial screen information seems to be a repeat of the call log. Couldn't that be a good home for it?

    I don't use the 5-way to get to my i-Bar (which is located at the bottom of my screen). My most 5 called people are right there on my i-Bar. Usually, if I want to make a call, I can just tap any of the pics, and then another tap on the screen for "ok" (to make a call), or "SMS". (I have it set up this way on purpose so I don't accidentally call someone when I really meant to send an SMS.) If I need to make a call/SMS to another person that is not in my 'top 5', that's when I will use the 5-way.

    I would LOVE to have the i-Bar as it's own page. I very rarely use 'favorites' because I use FastLaunch. The only time I use 'favorites' is if I need to go to my voicemail. (I can't press and hold '1' because Fastlaunch 'thinks' I'm looking for an app that begins with the letter 'E').

    I don't cycle through re-dial, however, I do like having the option of tapping the little button on the bottom of my screen in case I do need to re-dial.

    If/when Shimon does allow a full i-Bar screen, I would probably have that be my 2nd cycle, only because I like the "find" screen to be first opening screen, so I can see my smiley face!
    .

    VERY happy user of these GREAT apps:

    Haven't used this app on my Palm in a while. Flames be damned, but is there a WM version of this program?

    Hi all,

    Version 7.55 (074) posted at www.shsh.com/beta

    http://www.shsh.com/beta/tp_new_all.gif

    - Display: improved built-in skin – wallpaper & buttons.

    - Call log: a when selecting “Add to...” TAKEphONE goes to the
    FIND screen so the user can locate the contact to add to.
    Now this mode is indicated by changing the title to “Add to...”.

    - Internet search: fix to handle larger URLs (256 chars) in
    “Custom” search settings.

    - Speed dial entries: fix to handle larger URLs (256 chars).

    - i-Bar entries: fix to handle larger URLs (256 chars).

    - Languages: added Russian (Windows 1251) support.

    - General: used to activate the leftmost i-Bar button when
    returning to TAKEphONE after user hangs up a call with
    the on-screen button – fixed.

    - i-Bar: when first installing the application, show 5 tips on
    buttons to demonstrate to new users the possible uses of the i-Bar.

    Thanks.

    Is an auto soft reset normal when changing to .074? My Centro just did one on it's own.

    via "Check for updates" ? (wirelessly)
    via SD card copy ?

    This will be my first update since installing the program. Which is the preferred method? Thanks for the great service btw!

    don't mean to derail the thread but can someone tell me how I can access the yellow and red message squares in top left of the screen without pulling up the menu? Is there another way? In order to see what the message is I have to be very precise where I press. Is it possible to move that blinking alert down in future versions?
  13. #773  
    menu x for missed call
    menu v for voicemail

    the regulart alert bell is the regular way. hod down on the center button on the 5way

    Shimon,

    I would just like to give you a big thank you. I appreciate your support of your products and love the new customization features you've added to all of them. I was a stout UltimatePhone user, but the beta developments of TakePhone have really made a convert out of me. Thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication. These products keep getting better and better. I already had 2Day and 4Cast, but purchased TakePhone with the $4.99 sale. Best 5 bucks I ever spent. Thanks also for putting up with all of us whiners who want these products to do everything under the sun, including walking the dog.

    It depends. If you have the current "release" version (7.55 build 001 - check the "about" screen in Takephone to see), then you'll need to download from the link provided above, under "beta," and just install over the top the what you have. If you have one of the more recent beta versions, then you can just update from within Takephone (menu-options-check for updates), and it will guide you through the process to update OTA). Good luck!

    latest beta working great, Shimon!

    Btw, for all of you who like "skinning" your Takephone screens, as soon as Shimon declares this a "release" version, I'll be making a set of skins available to match the new built-in skin. Like with the other skins (check the link in my sig), it'll be available in a variety of colors

    I'm embarrased to ask: What should I be downloading, the latest "beta" or "release"? Currently using build (064)
