    I'm thinking that what is assigned to the hard buttons shows the most important/used programs for each user. What is assigned to your hard buttons? Mine are as follows:

    Button 1: Regular: Takephone.
    Option +: Calculator
    Long press: Phone app

    Button 2: Regular: 2day
    Option +: Soundrec
    Long press: Bob's alarm
    Multiple presses: cycles between 2day and datebk5

    Button 3: Regular: Snappermail
    Option +: SMS
    Long press: checks new mail with Snappermail

    Button 4: Regular: Daynotez
    Option +: Keyguard lock (I think this is the only choice here)
    Long press: Bugme!

    I wish I had more hard buttons.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    I use a combination of FlexButton, SmartLauncher, and Bob's Popup Launch.

    Phone button:
    -press: Phone
    -long press: SoundRec
    -longer press: empty for now
    -Opt+: FlexMenu1 (to launch various DA's by pressing another button)

    Calendar button:
    -press: SmartLauncher, then I can launch HandyShopper, SnapperMail, Pictures, Datebk5, Bob's Alarm, QuikBudget etc. by pressing another button. Basically I can double tap the Calendar button to launch SnapperMail, or tap Calendar then 5way down to launch Datebk5.
    -long press: SMS
    -longer press: empty for now
    -Opt+: popup calculator

    SMS button:
    -press: Pocket-Tunes
    -long press: psMemo
    -longer press: Documents-2-Go
    -Opt+: daMemoPad (a popup memopad)

    Power button:
    -press: power
    -long press: popup clock with Bob's Popup Launch
    -Opt+: command menu bar (one of the cool things FlexButton can do here)

    As you can see there is room for growth. The only reaon I use SmartLauncher instead of FlexButton on the Calendar button is because I can use Up and Down as a second button (soon to be Left and Right also). I launch all DA's from Opt+ because that is the one button combination that does NOT work when the device is off, and I usually only need them with its already on. One aspect of this setup is hiding sensitive apps such as SMS from people that play with my phone because they require that the button be held down. Hopefully they wont try that

    button 1: Phone; option = SoundRec
    button 2: Calendar; option = MovieRec
    button 3: Verichat; option = MobiPocket (i do a lot of ebook reading)
    button 4: on/off; option = KeyGuard

    After reading this thread I think I have button envy; but I'm used to hitting button 1 then holding down keys to use the built in quick keys to get to WebPro, SnapperMail, FileZ, etc.

    I tried four launchers, purchased two and use one (CoLauncher). I tried reassignment of keys and sometimes was happy and other times not. So, the phone key is TakePhone, the alt/phone is Chatter. The datebook key is CoLaunch and the alt/datebook is Datebook 5. The mail key is HanDBase and the alt/datebook is SnapperMail. Colauncher takes care of the rest. I got bored changing the keys as needed. Ben

    I am a new palm/treo user and didn't even know about that long press option for hard buttons. Is this a part of the palm launcher or can you only do this with a replacement launcher? Any info would be great. Thanks.

    Hmmm, am I the only one who's left them at default? I put all my custom things in favorites.

    thought it might be relevant to point you over to where they've got an app called 1button+ (i think) which allows 9! apps to each hard button. I'm trying it, not sure whether I like it or not yet.

    I use Bob's PopLaunch which allows the hard buttons to be assigned to other apps if held down for a few seconds. I hate using the option key to get to second functions.

    Hold 1 sec: Pocket Tunes
    Hold 2 sec: Blazer

    Button 2
    Press Once: Calendar
    Hold 1 sec: Memo Pad
    Hold 2 sec: To Do List

    Button 3
    Press Once: SMS
    Hold 1 sec: SnapperMail
    Hold 2 sec: VeriChat

    Button 4
    Press Once: Power
    Hold 1 sec: Pickem
    Hold 2 sec: Splash ID

    is there a way so that when you press the blazer hard button a second time you'll goto the book marks (like in the treo 180/270/300). Thanks guys.

    Check out an app called Treo Shortcuts. Haven't tried it myself, so I don't know how well it works (it sounds like it should be simple enough though).
