    Is there a way to simly switch between 1, 2 or more apps in memory at a time? I am used to the windows and symbian way of doing things.

    With my Treo650 if i am in, say the internet browsing a page and then wish to flip over to my text messages or dictionary. Returning to Blazer refreshew the whole page again. Or worse, leaving some apps seems to close them altogether, so that when you flip back, they restart from the beginning?!

    I have to say i am quite surprised at this default behaviour, i thought writing good os's was what Palm specialised in.

    Next OS will be Linux with Palm GUI and it will support the feature that themitch want....

    There are applications that allow you to rotate between "open" applications. It doesn't work exactly like you want but it is better than having to go to the launcher. I used to use one on my T600 but after getting my T650 I haven't figured out which application I used for this.

    I found the one I used to sue. It's called Switch5 and can be found on palmgear.com. Butler also does this. Interestingly none of the "switchers" I've found allow you to use the PTT (or side) button as the "hot" button. It seems like a pretty good use of this button.

    Butler gives you the choice of using the side rockers to either scroll the page or to switch to the previous applications (in sequence that they were run).

    D'you see it?

    Also check out QuickLaunch Anywhere feature within zLauncher if you have it. Barely ever have to go to the launcher again

    If you don't want your Internet page to be refreshed when you go to a different program, I found that the browser "Xiino" prevents this. It has a very good system of caching, so you can go back lots of pages without it loading at all. Also, when you go to a different program and come back the page will be exactly the same as you left it.

    It's a good browser too. You can check it out here: http://www.mobirus.com/eng/products/Xiino/.

    You can change the settings in Blazer so it opens the last page viewed...
