    Hello Everyone!

    I have a concept for a very usefull app for the Pre, but unfortunatally little to no knowledge of programing. So I was hoping my concept could find the home of a programmer looking for something fun and usefull to do.

    My idea is a Touchstone Customizer.

    See, I love my touchstone, but it has a variety of little things that drive me insane. I leave my vibrate switch on all day so if I put the phone on my touchstone and I get a text while I am sleeping I get no alert since it doesn't vibrate. Then if I get a call, I can't see the phone because my glasses are off, so by instinct I grab the phone to see who it is, and it answers automatically. Very frustrating, so here's what I think would help many community members in my shoes:

    Toggle 'Clock Screen' Option
    Custom Ring / Alert Volume while docked
    Option to bypass 'Vibrate Switch' for above settings while docked
    Toggle 'Answer on removal from dock'

    Thats all I have so far but I'm sure other members can add to this list.

    I assumed that someone would eventually write an app like this, perhaps as part of a larger 'preferences' app. I'll throw in my interest for such an app as well.

    Sounds like a good idea. If the Pre were to vibrate while on the charger, would that cause the phone to stop charging? (is there a way right now to set it to vibrate instead of a little sound...?)

    I assume the vibrate may wiggle it loose, thats why i reccomended a changable sound instead

    I would like to see a photo slide show when connected to the touchstone. I love the touchstone but it would be so sweet if when I charge my phone it cycles through my pictures. Like a mini digital pic frame

    There is code in the Sounds and Alerts App for "uiSoundsWhenCharging" I am assume it would be something with the touchstone or charging cable. I haven't played around with it too much since it wasn't what I was looking for and while there is some stuff there to set the preference and get the file, the other half of the code has been deleted.

    I remember that on my fathers Treo while charging he had a Slideshow of pictures running across his screen, i might look into this see if its possible i'm sure it is, cause there are functions called when its charging what it should be doing...

    It would be great to not have to hear that ding every time I change the orientation of my phone on the touchstone
