Again, I made a, I think a pretty useful application for Start Menu. It's not yet done, but I want to show a preview on what this app do.
Do you agree that sometimes scrolling way down to the bottom of the start menu is a bit tiring? Though you can move those on top but .. your application shortcuts in start menu will start getting messy
So I made this this start menu app to reduce some of the hard scrolling work.
here are some screenshots
LETTER PADnote: available on version 1.1b
and video preview
I hope there's a kind person who can do a better video demo of my app.
the original idea was to have a search field at the bottom of the screen on the start menu then the start menu automatically scrolls to, what ever matched on your search. simple eh? the problem is, Start Menu can't receive key presses.. so.. discard.
Progress of the application is like: 98%
the other 2% is of course, unexpected bugs.

---- incomplete list in pinvoke.net!
- I have replaced the standard NETCF ListView Control to: SliderList Control - Thanks to @Obelix_A
---- but I'm still struggling to look for better kinetic scrolling list because the SliderList control's having an error and the developer hasn't responded yet.
---- currently trying this one Implementing a smoothly animated ListBox

5/13/2010 - around night
- Initial Development
- kinang inang Transparent Label
- by letter navigation
- Why the thin black bar still visible even when I closed the Start Menu.
- The thin black bar covers the Manila/Sense
- Some cooked ROM was not able to handle closing the start menu properly so even if you tap X, the start menu only hides(minimize) and not close.
- this also applies to every application you run in Windows Mobile (mostly in lower version of WM, 6.1 to <) that even if you tap X, the application doesn't close, it only hides(minimize) so the next time your run them, the application just restore to it's normal window state.
- read this - check X marks the spot
- If the thin black bar still stays at the top even after tapping X (from start menu)
-- 1. Tap the thin black bar and wait until it fully opens the Stuick UI and ..
-- 2. double tap the vertical letter selection bar (let's just abbreviate that to V.L.S.B.)
- you might want to try Control Your Windows 6.5.x X Button or I think this is better HTC X-Button
and here's the download file.
Please don't forget your feedback and bug reports.
The ridiculous TF3D Programs screen was my main reason to switch TF3D off; too often I never reached the end, due to the ridiculous time it took to get there and launching apps I did not want to launch
Hope to see a beta soon,
I'm using a tweaked stock ROM Diamond 2 WM6.1 ________... There is no place like 127.0.0.1
