Hey!
I've built a small today plugin that someone may find useful as well...
Well, since its my first Today plugin, its not perfect... However...
Anyway, it requires a hardware keyboard to be useful.
The attached ZIP archive contains both the CAB and user's manual.

t9 works, gstupidinput works. have not tested button assigned sips..
nice!

świetny plug, respekt, jak zawsze.
mała idea: drugie pole z miejscem na wpis rozszerzenia(czy inna forma filtra typu plików..) - perfekcyjna metoda na dojscie do skrótów, na przykład.
(cudem byłaby możliwość menu na tap'n'holdzie z paroma pierdołami, jak np. stwórz skrót w menu start, czy usuń..).
tak się rozmarzyłem..hm.

Dude, this rocks! I've been wanting someone to develop something like Launchy (http://www.launchy.net/) for Windows Mobile, this is a really nice first step.

I'm guessing it would be much more difficult to have the application also search and suggest documents, files, bookmarked web pages, and settings screens based on the text entry right?

What about making this a stand alone app that could be triggered without navigating to the today screen? For example, if I could launch this app by mapping it to a hardware button and then begin typing to launch any app, setting, document, web page, etc on my device it would be pretty awesome.

Yay, its good that someone likes it
Yes, I've been thinking about converting it to a stand-alone app.
Yes, I've been thinking about adding support for documents, bookmarks, etc.
Maybe in next release (actually I will have to rebuild it almost completely )...
Thank you for feedback, anyway

It HAS a touchscreen supported, but since:
1) using SIP (software input panel) is not too effective
- and -
2) there is no SIP button on the Today screen

hardware keyboard is required.

"2) there is no SIP button on the Today screen

look at this:

"# SIP support
This was asked for a lot. The Today screen doesn’t include the button to show/hide the on-screen stylus/finger keyboard. So if your mobile doesn’t have a keyboard, TwitToday wasn’t much use.

I’ve added a setting now that lets you programmatically show the SIP keyboard when you tap on the text box. "

Yeah, Launchy is awesome. This app could be quite similar to what the Pre does when you start typing ...

I can't wait for SIP support.

Talking
That's really great I was wondering why no one developed Launchy for PPC. Afterall, it's one of the best launchers out there

Unfortunately I have Manilla on my today.

_TB_TB_, you should definately develop it into a stand alone app
