    I like the application but i can't see a way to use a button to launch it without losing functionality. I mean, can they make any of the hardware buttons to launch it by doing a long press instead of a short press. I would say a long press down on the calendar or mail button would work much better than a short press. I really need those two buttons the way they are.

    Limitation is due to the way buttons are handled on PalmOS. 5-way center and screen power on button (hard4) can support long press, but hard1, hard2 and hard3 are launching the application instantly, I don't have time to check if it is a long or normal press. Short press let you launch VL or your normal application, but it is not very easy to use, it requires a little training

    Anyway, I'll have a look to see if I can find a better solution...

    I'm using the mail button and a short or normal press will launch VL. How about my mail? I can't get my mail now until VL finishes the Voice Rec. I would say add a long press on the mail and calendar buttons. So a normal press will launch my mail and a long one will launch VL. And everybody happy now. I now other apps that do it without a problem. I cannot sacrify current funcionality just to use VL.

    For the moment long press works for 5-way center button and hard4 (screen power on button). If you select these keys in VL's preferences and press a long time it will launch VL... Best key is certainly hard4: it turns your treo on, removes keyguard and launch voice recognition, all in only 1 (long) press.

    update: done, will be available in next release...

    Jean-Francois,

    Great Job..! Kudos! The keys are now configured to do a long press keeping the original functionality. However, the side button doesn't work.

    I have a few questions about the Application scripting feature:
    I'm using SplashID 3.22 and I have set it up as:
    right right center "password" down center
    There seems to be a bug on the password string because the password shows an extra character at the beginning. It brings the square character []

    Also, if I move the application to the SD card applicaiton scripting doesn't work.

    I hope this helps,

    Jean-Francois,

    There is a serious BUG with VL that I've been having for almost a week. I've been blaming TreoGuard for doing it and even telling the developer that there is a bug. However, the developer could not reproduce it. Let me explain:
    Case 1:
    TreoGuard has a screen off after X minutes. Everything was fine, but after I turn on the speakerphone and the screen went off SpeakerPhone was disabled. Even if I tried to enable it it would go back to disable when TreoGuard turns off the screen. I disable VL and made a soft reset and everything went fine.

    Case 2:
    When VL is enable playing MP3s with headphones sounds very low. Even the on the speaker sounds bad.

    I'm putting VL to a rest until it gets fixed. Also, the recognition seems to be marginal when it is used outdoors.

    Agreed - I fiddled with it for a while, then gave up - not worth the time. IMO, VL is just not ready for Prime Time.

    You might want to give voice dialer PRO a try. It has support for the side button and is easier to use than voice launcher.

    I don't want to exagerate on the bugs that this app has but I believe there are more bugs that do not stop by just disabled the app. YOU NEED TO DO A SOFT RESET TO GET RID OF THE BUGS. It seems like this program runs on the background even though it is not running. And that leads me to:

    Case 3
    VL stops snappermail auto fetch from running. Snappermail checks if other programs are running before fetching mail. Ex: If Pocket Tunes is playing music or you are taking a call it won't launch. And that is fine, but if VL is running something in the background idle waiting for a command then that is not OK.

    It is funny that all this time I never thought VL would cause so much problems been a Treo especific program. This is it for me with VL. Now, I need to ask for a refund, becuase I'm not doing any more unpaid beta testing for VL.
