Default TaskOS, a powerfull task manager.

VIDEO HERE

NEW COOL VIDEO HERE. Click this link.

Hi there, i just want to have feedback on my TaskOS app.

This application show to the users all the apps he opened and never closed. ( leave applications with HOME key and it will appear. Leave with back key and won't appear.)

The user can scroll between all these apps and launch one by clicking on it or kill it by dragging to the top ( like Palm PRE)

That's a beta, but all the mains features are there.


What do you think of it.


PS: i am looking for ROM developpers that would be able to launch it by long click on the "home" button or trackball/other.


Features

* customizable icon size
* wave effect ( i think i'll remove it)
* confirm killing app or not
* notification to launch easily ( looking for people who know ho to integrate this with long press on home button - trackball)
* more to come...

Will come

* theming the bar
* ignore apps by moving icon to the bottom

I said it here: this application only kills ACTIVE app's. I don't want to kill other apps.

nice thought, i like it!

I'm running 1.6 stock and unfortunately it doesn't show up when
i leave any app with home-key, but i find the idea of holding
home-key pressed in order to show up really nice!

...and yeah, i stopped using *press-here-to-kill-all-tasks*
* XPERIA Pro (stock rom)
* HTC Magic (32B) running Ginger yoshi 1.5
* O2 XDA Star (aka HTC Touch Dual) running Insomnia 3.25.1 (3G) by d_train - sold long time ago :(

I kinda like it
some suggestions:
- gestures (like from down to up to open it)
- Lock the slide up feature while scrolling
- Maybe previews of apps (would require lots of mem somehow)?
- click anywhere other than the switcher to close the switcher
- don't display apps twice

BTW: what about making an app launcher like the wave launcher from webOS? shouldnt be too hard and very useful

I like the idea of a Pre app launcher, but I want to say something related to memory may bog things down a little bit.

alright. Nevermind the thumbnails :P by gestures i mean like a system one so you drag up from the bottom of the screen to open taskOS but i guess that isn't possible unfortunately... maybe use a longpress menu to open it? would be great if a different solution was possible to open the switcher up

see news here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...22#post5404622 to launch with Home key, but i guess i won't have answers.


I think Google should allow users to make custom shortcuts by clicking on buttons!
