Cool [App] MoreRecent - Shows 15 recent apps (updated 5/18/10)

What does this do?
When launched it shows your last 15 applications. Just an improvement over the home long press functionality that is limited to 6.
You can launch it by long pressing search.

To Install:
Code:
adb install MoreRecent.apk
if you had a previous version, use this to reinstall:
Code:
adb install -r MoreRecent.apk
Code:
The code can be seen at http://code.google.com/p/morerecent/

This is my first app so be gentle
Open to suggestions for improvement. Report any bugs.



Change Log:
5/19/2010
- downloads will be available at the project/code site only
5/18/2010
- released code
- profiled and optimized. Upto 3x faster.
Uses its application object to cache data between launches.
5/6/2010
- supports receiving the search long press intent.
Note: Its tied to Search-long-press because thats the only one thats programmable. Let me know if you have any new info.
To undo the default setting: settings->applications->MoreRecent->"clear defaults"
- hid button background
- button text color set to white
- fixed button height and fixed rotate/landscape mode
- hid title, was a waste of space
- renamed app from "Recent12" to "MoreRecent"
- shows 15 recent apps now
- changed application icon.

Todos:
  1. Smart icon resize for lower resolution devices.
  2. Ability to 'pin' apps so they are always available. Like a quick launcher.

If it replaced the actual home long press, it would be simply brilliant. Though I'd assume that isn't easy to be done. Very nice first app though, useful.

Awesome!!

Just installed. The labels get cut off on mine for some reason:



Aside from that, the functionality seems great so far!

Yes, overriding the Home Long press would be downright AMAZING.

However, I'm 99% sure it's impossible...?

For now I'll be using Button Shortcut ( http://www.cyrket.com/p/android/com....ttonshortcuts/ ) to hijack Search button's long press for Recent12. However, Button Shortcut is extremely buggy and it often stops working (Search long press doing nothing) or it brings up the settings menu rather than the app I have a shortcut to.

If Home long press can't be overwritten, overwriting Search long press would be awesome (without having to go through Button Shortcut as a middleman)

If you're using CM, bcrook has a system level replacement for the recent apps which shows upto 15 recent apps... configurable. Pershoot has made this an update zip... http://droidbasement.com/db-blog/?p=241

I know, in using that myself. This has more appeal though.

I say 15 because it looks like that would be the maximum amount that could fit perfectly on screen, while still having equal buffer room on top/bottom for style (and seeing the status bar etc). And the goal here is more apps in the Recent list anyway
