Custom Startup Some Apps

that or as dkirker mentioned in the thread i linked, wait and see if a clever dev can create a custom app startup manager, but again unless the original app devs add in that option to silently launch to dashboard, even if you got the incredibly useful app startup manager they would all just spurt tons of open cards on bootup (ive tried using my method in the linked thread, and i semi failed trying to alter the apps myself, got some into dash but basically broke the app doing it), so could make the startup a bit messy after a reboot.
i suppose tis a bit of a choke factor atm, soem devs including garret are making some top apps/patches of late, some good ones already i want autostarting and likely more in the future and its a bit of a chore launching them all manually and tossing their cards away to leave them in the notification area, so the issues i mention above id really love to see happen 1 day even if its only realistic on open webOS.
