Now 2.0 with subfolder search and much more - look at changelog

I made this Plugin, because I think it's very useful for me - and perhaps it's also useful for you.

Another Launcher? No - not like the Launcher, which are already available - I wouldn't have developed it otherwise - and I developed it mostly on my handy, because I hadn't much time the last weeks.
You can define in some Launchers what you want - but what about if you want to start quickly something, which is not in your Favos?
And how about a Keyboard direct in Titanium? (could tease some iPhone-Fans )

And therefore "TitaniumStarter" - to start everything quickly. Together with Favorites Plugin of contable and JMLLauncher from JMHL (and jmltoday) I got a wonderful "Launch suite"





Features:

- Keyboard direct in Titanium Panel
- Full animated switching between Keyboard and Results (it should look cool)
- Designed to launch quickly each program in Start Menu with direct accessable different input methods
- Installed by TICS_installer: So it will work in ALL THEMES not only Standard Titanium, also Blizz,Josito,... (if you want to make a special .plg for the keyboard in your favorite Theme, just give it to me, I will integrate it)
- ALL RESOLUTIONS: QVGA, WQVGA, VGA, WVGA
- ALL ROM-Languages - no dependencies to a country or WWE-ROM - it knows, where your Start Menu is to find
- Different type modes (left side of keyboard):
-- I = one letter will start search for all Programs in Startmenu with this abecedarian letter
-- II = one letter needs tab on "GO", after two letters automatic search
-- III = type the word as long you want - only "GO" initiates search
- Wildcard-Search - e.g. "*oo" in Mode III would find "Groovefish" as well as "Bluetooth Explorer"
- Launches programs/chooses letter after tab on plugin - possible because of AreaButtons of JMLPanex
- To erase last letter just click backward button in the bottom-right corner under "GO"
- to erase all input just click on current mode on left side
- ...little bit more- just find it out

Changelog & additional Features of 2.0:
- now can search all subfolders of Start Menu
- Search Algorithm written in C - so very fast search
- completely redeveloped data structure
- Adjustable Animation-speed (Set Animation Time not too low, to prevent Timeouts)
- Links can viewed with or without Folder Info
- Extra Design for Folder-View/Non-Folder View
- Context Menu to change Folder-View, Refresh,Animation-Speed
- After Start an Application, Plugin switch to Keyboard and refresh itself
- Skinable - only provide a new /image-Directory
- Little bit more, which I've forgotten now

AddOn: If your Animation is too slow - you can use smaller Images, which has been made by Jumba - just replace the Images with them from Image-Directory of TitaniumStarter.
Download: images_smaller_sizes_by_Jumba.zip





Requirements:

- Mortscript 4.2 or higher *Download Mortscript 4.2*

- JMLPanex >= 2.0 / better 2.10 *Download JMLPanex* for working Titanium-Buttons


I have some ideas for updates or for another usages of this - it's something what I have developed/will develop ocassionally.

TitaniumStarter is free und will stay free - please don't repost it without asking.
Install to Main Memory like every Titanium Plugin and of course: I overtake no responsibility for damaging your device (however this should go )

JMHL for JMLPanex
MattJackson for Keyboard-Image
Mort for Mortscript



Hope you like it and its useful for you (or only to impress a little bit some iPhone-Users )

I just installed it and have a question right away, this looks only under start menu and not in subfolders?
I have my shortcuts organized in start menu subfolders, and it does not find them.

Animations look very cool, for my taste i would make them just a little bit faster, on my device the panel takes 4 seconds to turn.

i love it already although currently its kind of unusable yet for me.

- subfolder problem as described above it just doesnt find anything
- when using wm 6.5.1 pressing a letter presses much higher than it should due to the bigger bottom bar. seems the settings need adjusting here somehow?

look forward to an update, thanks!!

You can adjust the offset in Panex. - to go up and + to go down.

hi,
@pencilcase: offset of panex like claus said will solve your problem, and therefore that I have everything in my main folder,I didn't implement it in subfolder.but next version will do it,must only look for the speeed to find files while turning panel
thanx for the nice words

@claus: 4 seconds? ok,then animation speed will be adjustable in next version,too. on my diamond it's 1 second.i hope it's not exactly beetween turning in middle,because there is the folder-crawling,so that the speed of your file system is the cause.

@kane: of course I'd like to have chinese tester - but what do you mean with second language keyboard? what should I do? anothers layout or signs?

@all : only a question: in mode III - how "responsive" is your device? I mean-could you type fast longer text with this keyboard,too?

sorry 4 typos - only from handy online.

cheers
Micha
