    Hi-Launcher is an absolute must have. I have been using it for over a year.

    Ugly website = low overhead = low price for software

    I use the "home" button to launch Hi-Launcher and have the first button within Hi-Launcher to go to home, if need be.

    Just because it's ugly doesn't mean it's cheap. That just means that whoever designed it has horrible style & creativity. That's all.

    I don't think the price would change with a better looking site either.

    I mapped it to Home as well. If you press it twice, it will open Apps as well. This is a great application, I MUCH prefer it over the icon/tab based application launcher concepts. And great to be able to quickly toggle IR, BT (with BtToggle installed) and PCS Vision!

    I am sure it is a fine app, but you have to wonder if the same person who designed the website also designed the app right? He could just sell the app through palmgear and save the hassle of desgining his own site...

    I don't need a fancy webstie, just something readable. It cost the same on the web to use a white background as it does a burnt orange and green one.

    Try the app. It works. Flawlessly, and very very well. You'll forget all about the website.

    Can Hi-launcher be used to launch apps that have been moved to The SD card.
    This is critical for the 650, considering the memory constraints.

    Also, the developer is among the most responsive I have ever seen.
    Try it. You will wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Stop complaining about the web site design, for goodness sakes. Being a good Palm OS developer doesn't necessarily equate to being a good web designer and, in fact, the opposite is often true.

    Am I the only one with non-working URLs in my Hi-launcher?

    I emailed the authors--no response in a few days.

    Error:

    "No handler registered for this protocol!"

    I've ensured that "Web" is my default 'browser' under Default Apps (in Prefs)...

    Any clues?

    $19.95 is sure to be sent to them if I can get this working.

    p.s. I concur whole-heartedly about the Website. It's funny because I have never tried this program STRICTLY because the site was a turn-off. When TC members said it was good, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt, and immediately adopted my own color scheme on the launcher. Thank goodness.

    Thanks folks!

    It would be interesting to hear how this app compares to Z-Launcher which seems pretty solid. It has its own weird interface issues... but it is very configurable. Z-Launcher is not perfect however, I have not been able to move SnapperMail to the card and launch it with the "mail" button (it defaults to the truly wretched VersaMail). Comments ?

    After a clusterfart of problems, I've decided that LauncherX has been the cause of FAR too many problems. Getting rid of it, and cleaning up my interface with --just-- Hilauncher makes things work FINE.

    The URL problem? It's not there when I don't have LauncherX.

    Okay, yes, it took a hard reset because nothing was working and I was getting endless loops, but now I think I'm quite pleased with HiLauncher, and I'm heading over to their hideous site after I click "save changes" to purchase their software.

    Damn, I hate being stupid--installing tons of software making other bits and pieces stop working.

    Sigh. =)

    *** OLD Post Follows ***
    I'm using a combination of LauncherX (with the 650 hack), and Hilauncher. I find it to be VERY suitable. LauncherX does exactly what I want with a nice-looking interface, and hiding and finding applications is easy.

    Hilauncher is my replacement for McPhling which just wasn't customizable enough.

    I'd say that with the standard apps screen, Power Run, and HiLauncher, you'd have a very good setup. Add Launcher X for browsing, and you'd be really well off.

    Just my opinion.
