    Yup - email looks like it will work!

    I can see what you are saying about the timeout, and I'm sure thats what weather icon is doing. I was just hoping to conserve some battery. You could set the time to check for whatever you want - 1min, 5min, 15min, etc. Which could keep it near real time, or just close enough to conserve battery

    I am going to DL it!

    Cool, sounds good. Regarding battery life, having Homing Device running is unlikely to impact battery life much at all. Until a message comes in, it's really not doing anything at all. (other than consuming a small amount of ram) So I wouldn't be too concerned about it. In my (admittedly un-scientific) own tests, my idle battery drop is no different than without running HD.

    That would be great.

    Another nice addition would be to have an optional confirmation popup when a requester is not whitelisted.

    IM support would be awesome! Eliminates a training issue I have with the wife

    With the im support does the user have to be logged in to the im apps? If someone is in yahoo and sends the contact name the trigger word will the text/email be sent out regardless?

    Hey, I think this app is a brilliant idea, keep up the good work!
    Personally I would prefer that the app responds to sms and any kind of email, so that I can activated it from anywhere with anything. Personally, I'm never logged into IM, so that wouldn't help me.
    I would like to use this app in situations when I loose my phone or if somebody steals it, so that I can locate that person/my phone. For this purpose it would be best, if the programm started automaticly on boot up (just like brightnessunlinked can), so that even if the thief turns off the phone to replace the simcard with his, that I could locate him once he turns the phone back on. Another usefull feature would be, that HD compares the sim cards and if it notices a swap, then it automaticly sends an sms/email with the location and the phonenumber of the current sim card to a specific adress/number.
    Now, I know that all of this isn't possible at the moment, but maybe later some time.

    Thanks for the suggestions, my plate is full at the moment but I'll keep them in mind for the future.

    First off, I absolutely love this app... and like everyone else wish it could totally in the background without a dashboard but I know you cant do that right now.

    As far as IM access... I can see it being useful in a limited capacity. Usually I only have IM turned on when I need to IM someone though.

    Also... another suggestion. Any way you could simply add contacts versus numbers and emails? My wife for instance... if I could simply select her from a list versus having to add all of her phone, email addresses by hand. Just a thought.

    After you did the initial setup in the settings section (adding trigger word, etc) did you close that card? Doing so will "enable" HD and display the radar icon in the dashboard. If you did all that and it's still not working let me know.

    It still isn't working, does it have too be a palm phone or is it non-specific? Thanks

    The person sending you the text message can use any phone. Could you respond to my previous question? I want to verify that the app is actually running. Thanks,

    Well, i did what you said and closed the card after the settings, and yes the icon was up in the bottom right corner. But when i send the message with the "trigger" word only nothing happens. I know its case sensitive from reading but that didnt help. I even tried sending the "trigger" word from the other phone to mine, no go.
