    I am currently using LauncherX on my 600 and was hoping to use it on the 650. would anyone know if there would be potential compatibility issues, as this app is no longer updated? Many thanks

    I hate to say, but LX's day has passed. ZL is the new king. I have owned both and ZL is just more powerful, especially from a memory management perspective. Additionally, the wonderful creator of LX has died, so there won't be any improvements in the future

    Do you have a link to ZL?

    I did test LX on the Tungsten T5, which sports the same OS (5.4) as the Treo650, and everything seemed to work OK except for the select button, which is a bit of a problem.

    This may, however, be something machine-specific, to do with palmOne's fiddling around with the 5-way functionality to make it behave more like the Treo's dialogue focus.

    It'll be a shame if this is the OS update that kills LX, its simple functionality is somewhat lacking in the more sophisticated launcher replacements.

    thanks for the input guys. I appreciate it.

    hopefully the center of the d-pad works for the 650, as it works fine for the 600. that would really suck if the OS update kills it. thanks for comparison with the T5.

    As for ZL, I got that launcher too. its a little too much for me though. like the previous poster, I like the simplicity of LX. however, if need be I have ZL handy.

    thanks again

    ZLauncher was a bit too confusing for my liking, yes it's probably powerful but I like LauncherX's simple yet powerful interface.

    I think that there is an LX theme for ZL for the high Res, so T650 can use it,,,just an idea

    I tested launcherx on the 650 simulator, works great.

    And yes, I find Zlauncher too cluttered, messy, and less useful.

    thanks Real-ity for checking it on the simulator. So I take that the center nav pad selector works? (Just double checking) many thanks!


    100thMonkey, thanks for the LX skin for ZL recommendation. Thats the skin that I actually used when I tried getting used to ZL.
