    One of the things I love and hate most about the ZLauncher is its ability to move apps to the SD card. This is great but when I exit programs that are being run from the SD card, ZL would do a backup procedure that would take a long time (depending on how large the app and database files were).

    The new version seemed to do away with this. According to the website, ZL now only backs up files that had been modified. This makes sense to me. Before ZL would backup prc files which of course never changes.

    I highly advise people to give it a try!!!

    My only concern is if ZL is truly doing a good job of keeping track of databases and files that change and doing the appropriate backup when required. Think i will test this out tonight.

    Yes it is, but the odd thing now is that my 650 seems to turn on for no reason and stays on. ZLauncher was the last thing I downloaded so I believe that's what's causing it. Anyone else having this prob?

    I agree, ZLauncher is much faster. If i wrote more it would be plagerizing the first post of the thread. I had the same love/hate relationship with ZL. Now its all LOOOOVE.

    Is there a Zlauncher for nooobies somewhere? Like what is a good "basic" setup on a Treo 650? Like which is a real simple clean interface, how to get a basic configuration up and going, etc.

    I actually found two things about it that I didn't like - all the GUIs seemed cluttered and way too busy - sort of like bad GUI designers on acid. I'd like a nice simple, clean interface and a basic "how to" for Zlauncher.

    Anyone.... Bueller...anyone?

    Hmmm, since I downloaded the newest version, my Treo 650 had randomly reset twice while it was just lying on my desk. #*#377 says the reset was caused my zlauncher.

    I have also been receiving random soft resets since installing ZLauncher 5.20.

    I also now suffer a consistent soft reset when attempting an online weather update using Worldmate Pro 4.019 whether launched from RAM or SD card. Anyone else using WM Pro, please do a similar check and report.

    Until now I have been pretty lucky without any random rests...

    I downgraded back to version 5.11 so I will see if this random reset still happens.

    yes!!!! it no longer backs up the un modified apps and databases launched from the memory card... I have been waiting for this for a while now. it's awesome!!

    if you find any apps that don't seem to backup properly let us know. I haven't seen any yet.

    I absolutely love ZLauncher. I even have it running on my Palm IIIxe.

    I've had no problems with 5.2m with one possible exception. I was trying to configure the latest beta of schedule care, and had a reset. After the reset, my category preferences in ZL were hosed, with most of my apps in unfiled. I didn't think to check for the error code.

    I restored my ZL prefs files, and no more problems. I do not have any problems with frequent resets.

    It seems to be a "play with it" app. When I first loaded it in I hated it because it was way too busy - so I uninstalled it. I watched the threads here and there was one that included a bunch of screen shots from other users that were much cleaner. So, I re-installed and started playing around with the top and bottm bars, the tabs. etc. and now have it set up so it's clean and as I like it.

    So my advice would be to search for the above mentioned thread and then start playing - it will likely take you a week or two of tweaking to get what you want.

    The file "ZLauncherDB.PDB" keeps getting corrupted. It happens randomly and frequently. Any thoughts?

    I have been getting resets after running Backupman. The scheduled backup seems to work ok. The reset occurs when Backupman exits to Zlauncher.
