    Available SOON! As of 7 April - awaiting Palm approval.

    Welcome to the early 90's!

    Marquees are like mopeds - everyone wants one & you don't want your friends to see you with it. Well, I'm rocking my childhood again, so come on and join me.

    I packed a ton of options into this and used all the latest code to make these smooth and fun. You can choose your own background and font colors, text size, scroll mode (scroll, alternate or slide), portrait or landscape, left or right direction and you can bold and italicize the text! You can also add images via url tags.

    Add as many images or text as you like! Have fun playing with the layout and remember, the text box to enter the marquee accepts html, so knock yourself out!

    Plus, rocking a marquee can actually be useful. How, you ask?
    - Shout across the bar
    - Send a message to someone you can see but aren't close to
    - Pass a message in a meeting
    - Generally make you look cool and up your social status

    Need I say more?!

    More images are available via the Find Images button when creating a marquee. Have fun and play safe! Remember, - road rage may seem like a good idea, but it's usually best when they can't hear what you're saying.

    Please use this forum for any questions you may have.
    The app help is available from the menu dropdown on the top left of the app or here

    If you're imaginative, you should be able to make some really cool marquees!

    Not sure what I expected to be honest.....I'm a fan of Party Sign, works good and fast in a pinch, maybe with a bit more practice, I can get something going a little quicker than I did the first time.

    Couple of questions. When setting background and font colors...I think it would be easier if you had a color palette that opens up instead of having to type the color name in, not only is it faster, but you can visualize it better.

    I made a couple up and went to edit them, and can't seem to edit either.

    As far as naming them...useful if they are strictly pictures but if it's a message that I'm typing like "What's your phone number" or "Taxi", then those simply would be the title, and no need, imo, to have to enter that information twice. Again, it's time and effort that I'm wasting.....not a lot of time and effort, but time and effort nonetheless.

    A couple of tweaks and I think this could be a good replacement to Party Sign.

    I'll work on the color picker - I gave a quick attempt at it and then put it to the side for an update later as it seemed involved.

    I didn't include editing because I pictured these as a create, store then use when needed sort of thing. It's definitely something I can do though.

    I'll move the "Name" box to the last step, and prefill it with the marquee text. Then you can either hit save or rename it. Sound good?

    I already have a 1.0.1 update in for minor stuff the user doesn't see in Palm's queue, but I'll get a 1.0.2 together soon with whatever of these I can knock out quickly!

    Point 1: Fair enough, but it either needs a color palette, or simply just a scrolling menu with the available colors....Having just a blank entry box for colors...are you telling me if I pull out my crayola box and enter "Eggplant" and "Mountain Meadow" those colors are going to come up List of Crayola crayon colors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Point 2: It needs it, just to mess around with things like different sized fonts and checking out how the effects work etc.

    Point 3: Sounds good

    Point 4: Fair enough thanks for the quick reply, this looks like it could be a fun app

    Point 1: LOL - Ya, I originally had a list in there and then took it out because I felt it was restricting. What I'll have to do is find a list of the colors that the Pre can handle. Like I said in the help - I typed in Sienna and Puce and got brown on yellow. I just never know what people will like until it's out there. I'll put the list back - what colors would you use most so I can default the list to those? I was going to go with white letters on black background.

    Point 2: I'll get it added in - no problem.

    By the way - until 1.0.2 - please don't use apostrophes in the name - I forgot to escape the characters for the db. Sorry!

    I think you should add all of these: HTML color codes

    I'm kidding I think the standard primary 16 colors would be sufficient:
    Color names - 16 color chart

    and the default (white on black)is good....maybe a suggestion for adding different fonts....that's something those other similar apps don't have that can make yours stand out

    Go big or go home - I'll add the html color code list.

    I checked in to fonts and the Pre only has 3 - I'm looking in to what I can do with server side fonts with css though!

    Different fonts would be a nice bonus. Good suggestion.

    I also have Party Sign, but I'm going to give this a try over the weekend.

    You rock HTML color list lol

    If you're going to go so far as that......then have two color wheel choices
    Have the 16 colors for someone that just wants the basics and then HTML for the serious messenger

    I guess I should give you some stars in the cat for all this

    Palm doesn't support the @font-face css3 directive yet, so no custom fonts.

    I can at least try and give people choices of the 3 it supports though.

    Talk to HardBeatz....I think he works for them, probably not THE guy to talk to but he might point you in the right direction (if you don't already know who/where to talk to/go).

    Palm seems to be running slow - they still haven't released 1.0.1 so I'll try and remove that and get this one in ASAP.

    1.0.2 will have edit capabilities. I added a Normal and Edit mode radio button on the front page. When in edit mode, tap a marquee in the list and instead of displaying, it will take you to the settings where you can edit away.



    Also, body and font color are cloud options - click on them and a color picker pops up with all 300 or so html colors. I made the color picker myself so it's fast to scroll through. The body and font colors are displayed at the bottom, so you can see what you picked and how they look together.





    The name has been moved to the last option on the list and copies whatever text was input. You can click in the box and edit the name or just hit save.

    In 1.0.3 I'll add in paging to the find images scene.
