Hi guys,

I was watching a Youtube video showing up the new HTC Wildfire with an awesome feature, pressing an hardware key you have access to an homescreen from where you can run the widget you desire.

So Ive decided to create a small app for our Rhodium:

Name: HomeScreenJump for TouchPro 2
Version: 2.0
Author: dotcompt
Requirements: .NET CF 3.5

Description: HomeScreen from where you can jump to the Manila Tab you want.
Tabs available: Home, People, Messages, Mail, Weather, Twitter, Music, Photos&Videos, Call History, eReader, Documents, GPS Tracker, Settings, Calendar, Internet, Manila TV, Stocks, Footprints, Facebook and Programs Tabs.

Reviews:
Pocketnow
WMExperts

Screenshoots:


Change Log 12-06-2010:
  • One Cab Installer.
  • Fullscreen view (no more WM6.5 buttons).
  • Visual enhancements and animations.
  • Favorite wallpaper crash fixed.
  • Readme file added to install folder

Change Log 07-06-2010:
  • 3x3 grid with 9 Tab links
  • 20 Manila Tabs available now
  • Wallpaper changer easy to skin
  • Favorite wallpaper - you need to copy your favorite wallpaper to \Program Files\HomeScreenJump\Wallpapers with the name "favorite.jpg"
  • Option to choose which tabs to show


Instructions steps:

1. Remove previous cabs (HSJ Basefiles.cab & HomeScreenJump.cab), and delete \Program Files\Homescreenjump folder in your device
2. Install the "HomeScreenJump.cab" in attach (device)

3. Optional - If you want to launch the HomeScreenJump from the TP2 Start Menu Hardware key (which is the best way to run it):
- Install "RhodiumKbdControl_GSM.CAB" and dont reset yet. (device)
- Install "dotcompt TP2 Start Menu Hardware Key remap.cab" (device)

4. Restart

Now by holding down the TP2 Start Menu hardware key for a second the homescreenJump will open and you can choose the manila Tab you want to go.


Note: This app was only tested on TouchPro 2 and it will probably work on other devices but definitely you have to skip step 3 that is exclusive for TP2 devices.


_________________________________

To Do:
  1. Browse device for pictures
  2. Live or last-visit based preview
  3. Slide Panel with more shortcuts (canceled)

Enjoy it.

Another amazing product from dot.
Nice to know that you are playing around with Visual Studio. Getting ready for WP7 apps?

Thanks

Since I see "GSM" in the name of one of the CABs, am I correct that this will not work on CDMA TP2s?
