    If I can get full reading and navigation in apps like Feeder, Pandora, etc. from Exhibition mode, it will save me the hassle of entering my pin just to read a new article, switch a song, etc. I have pin lock on to keep personal info private but things like feeds, weather, music, deal alerts, traffic alerts and many other apps don't need to be behind the pin lock to view and navigate through. I use a touchstone at work and this would drastically cut down the amount of times I have to bother with pin lock to fully check a notification.

    It depends on how the Exhibition Mode of the application is set up. One option is to simply enable the application to run in Exhibition Mode, and in that case all functionality would be available. (I have done that with my own calculator program). The other option is to have a separate Exhibition mode for the application, and then it is obviously up to the developer.

    wouldn't that defeat the purpose, since it is enabled as a "sleep" mode? Interacting would be normal operation, no?

    Thanks, I hope they implement it then. Sleep mode is nice but I'd like to be able to navigate it like a full app too.

    In order to make an application available to Exhibition Mode it just needs "dockMode": true in appinfo.json. Just bear in mind that Exhibition Mode will only allow portrait view operation even if the application normally allows landscape. Please fix HP!

    EDIT : Corrected syntax and though that worked on my program, I have not been able to get a couple of others behaving. More investigation required.

    There should be a sample Exhibition app in the latest SDK, or at least the code for the Agenda and Photos app. There are definitely some differences about how the Exhibition stage works, although if you don't use those features, you may not notice or care.

    One thing that doesn't work (at least currently) is the Notification chain. The considerForNotification function won't work without a workaround in either dock stage or dashboard stages.

    You are right about the dockMode syntax, but agenda-view does not have touchstoneMode. Nevertheless, I have tried another couple of programs without success, so dockMode is not the whole story.

    BTW agenda-view has "visible":"false", but that is not responsible for it not being visible in the launcher.
