    Don't forget about the "Last app trigger". Make that side button do something!

    overall a really cool app,i have a couple of apps that are 3-4 megs so they dont agree well with powerrun....but thanks to hilauncher in a few seconds i can run them from the card/launcher directory anyway!!

    You can do that from the basic Palm launcher :P I'm not sure where PowerRun puts things, but most anything will work from the SD card in /palm/launcher as long as it doesn't need to sync or run in the background.

    FYI, there's a bug in the 3.0 version, wherein launching a DA with Hi-Launcher while using Blazer causes a reset. Radoslaw is aware of it and should have a fix soon.

    is there any sort of repository of menu setups that can be downloaded or anything like that? that would be cool.

    There is nothing like that so far, but indeed, it's a great idea!

    I'll try to create something like that under www.hilauncher.com.

    For the time being you can upload your Menus somewhere (preferably together with their screenshots), and post the links here!

    What does everybody think?

    Having a menu repository would be good for folks just starting out to give them some good ideas of what can be done, what colours work well, etc.

    One thing I'd like to see added to Hi-Launcher is the ability to have more than one menu system active. It would be almost like Hi-Launcher was installed twice, with two separate launch keys. When I launch with one key, I get one menu set and when I launch with the other key I get a different menu.

    That would be useful since it would play nicely with the traditional idea of multiple hard keys doing different things, and it would give more room to power users (like myself) who are running out of menu space in a two-tiered menu system (don't wanna go to three tiers).

    Another idea is to let the Treo's thumbpad be used for activation keys, not just the hard buttons. There are all these activation methods based on swipes that Treo users can't use and there isn't a good substitute right now. Letting the keyboard keys take part in Hi-Launcher activation seems natural.

    That sounds like a great idea. Hi-Launcher saves SO much time getting what you want, when you want it.

    Turn on the option "Display Options" > "Contents" > "Underline shortcut characters" so you can see the shortcut letter underlined in your menus.

    Well, there's actually a second step to take. After turning on the Underline option in Display Options (and making sure that you tap OK and then Save before leaving that section), you have to select each of your apps in "Design the Menu", choose Item/Properties from the menu and actually type the intended Shortcut character at the top of the screen (making sure to tap OK when you've finished).

    PatrickS, I've acknowledged your feature requests. I can't promise, however, they will be implemented in the very next version.

    Folks, I've got a problem that I haven't heard back from RNS Support on.

    I'm a registered user of Hi_Launcher 3.0, and I love it.

    However, about each day, I'm getting a crash while using it.

    It is not at the same time of day, but it always says:

    Field68K.c, Line:247, Form object (field) not found

    Have you seen this before, and is there a resolution to it? Thanks,

    Woops! We missed that e-mail in the holliday rush.

    When do you get the crash? Immediately with pressing the trigger, while browsing the Menu, or while selecting a Menu item?
    Does it happen over a specific application only, or doesn't matter?

    So, does anyone have any of their menus they have saved and would like to share with others?

    Thanks...

    Hi RaNo, Scott from Tapland here. Here's an idea I've been mulling about recently...how about multiple context-sensitive menus? So, for example, you might have one Hi-Launcher menu for when you're using Blazer that would have your favorites, another Hi-Launcher menu when you're using the phone app that has your frequently-dialed people, etc.

    The other idea I had (and alluded to, but didn't detail, to you or one of your team in an email a long time ago), is to have the Hi-Launcher menu take up the whole screen and use larger fonts and icons. I know that many of the uber-geeks will scoff at the idea, as they want to cram as much stuff into a screen as possible, but this would also make it finger-touchscreen-friendly and arm-length-friendly. This would also be useful for the Zodiacs. If you're at all interested in that idea, I would recommend looking at some alternate platforms for ideas, such as the Sony PSP's menu, the TiVo UI, and the Windows Media Center UI.

    My last idea, building on the idea I just mentioned above (and now I'm giving away all my ideas, as this is something I've thought about coding myself) is to have the main menu offer other info and even offering plug-in support. So, for example, you might have some weather info on there.

    I'll also add to the idea mentioned previously of letting the user make a simpler menu where the D-Pad directions let you very quickly launch an app. I liked the Treo 600's phone app better than the 650's because of this.

    Combining some of these ideas would complicate things for you and take your app in a new direction, but we'd end up with a customizable "home/launcher" screen with quick-access apps (via the D-Pad), weather info, etc.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Touch the 8 key and then the touch the 'Alt' key/button. At least that is the way it works on my 650.

    Here's another suggestion which is a variation on my idea for context-sensitive menus: Multiple menus layouts launched via different keypresses. So, a press of one hard button would display one menu, another hard button might display a different menu, a press-and-hold on a menu button might display a different menu.

    Here's an example of how you might configure this...
    - Pressing the Home key would display your full-featured menu with various choices and sub-menus.
    - Pressing-and-holding the Home key would display just a simple menu with the last four applications you used (sort of a pseudo-task-switcher).

    For a while I've been using Hi-Launcher simply as a glorified task switcher, with a rather simple menu with the last four apps I've used plus a single icon for "Applications" and had this tied to my Home button. I had the last-app trigger assigned to press-and-hold on my Home button.

    FWIW, today I played around with Hi-Launcher some more and added a few favorite apps to the menu in addition to the last three apps used.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Just started using the demo and I am LOVING it so far. Two questions:

    (1) I'm trying to set up some menu items to send email. H-L wants to default to VersaMail, even though I have ChatterEmail set as the default mail app (in the Treo Preferences>Default Applications). Every other application that lets me send a message defaults to Chatter. Why does H-L want to use VersaMail?

    (2) Is there any way to set the color of a selected menu item? Some of mine use a black background, others purple, etc. Seems random.

    Thanks!
