What is QuickSwitch?

It's an app I developed to mimic ALT-TAB behaviour.
More info at http://bit.ly/quickswitch


Story:

I am a proud Desire Z owner and have to say the Vision is amazing with its keyboard. One thing I still hate about day to day tasks is switching between Google Talk and MSN apps. I hate reaching up to the notification bar from the keyboard.

So I wrote an app to solve this problem. I call it QuickSwitch.

By taking advantage of the quick keys on the keyboard, I wrote an app that basically launches other apps. It's configurable which apps you want favourit-ed and how many running apps to show. I also made it mimic alt-tab function by pressing Quick key 1 and comma. This would switch back and forth between apps very quickly.

nice idea, but if your just using it to switch between gtalk and msn why don't you just install ebuddy and run both together?

i like the ability to make the quick keys function like alt and tab. im downloading it right now, will come back with comments

edit:

i think i misunderstood, can this make the quick keys function as alt or shift? i hate the placement of they keys and i hate the quick keys theyre pointless, i like better the keyboard layout on the merge
is there anyway to assign the quick keys the alt or tab function?

aside from that though, its pretty cool app and its fast too. good job

do you mean using TAB to switch versus comma and period key? I can look into making that possible. did I understand you correctly?
