HOW TO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTCAbs7GCMs

I got tired of using standard omnia launcher so I wrote a new one. You can see it in action here:

This is the first release so it can have some bugs. It was tested only on samsung omnia so if you get it running on other devices please let me know.

If you'd like to configure the favotires,icons etc. find the installation folder - usually in Program Files and look for files:

Favorites.txt - add any application to the list and you should see it in favorites,
Icons/Icons.txt - will assign new icons to apps (name, icon). You can add any png 48x48 or 32x32 image - see Icons folder.
Exclude.txt - add app to the list and it will be excluded from the app list.

This is first release. Probably I will add some configuration latter.

Consider donating for further releases.

actually, it works just fine on QVGA. This is great!

I was wondering if you could make something exactly like the TouchFLO 3d all programs launcher? that would be amazing :)

First impression... running as smooth on my Kaiser (QVGA). I installed in on my storage card.

Nice work. :)

Tried on my Omnia.. it locks for a while at the beginning, while the tab " favourites " is selected and you press the tab " find ".

Ok, it's true, after the first time it gets really fast and smooth (I really love it), but I still didnt get my shortcuts work. Any idea?

Htc Touch. WM 6.1



Now it saw, it only launch the shortcuts if I slide to right, is it right?

Excellent app!! Just one question/request. Would you be able to implement a "category" system? Something similar to how iContact handles categories, if at all possible. If so, this would be an absolutely killer app. (Not that it isn't already. :D)
Keep up the great work!

It does work with my VGA Axim x51v, but it has some quirks, like. And its insanely smooth! I have never experienced such smooth scrolling on my PDA before, even though I don't like the menu lagging a little behind my finger (but I suppose that to be intended)! A great application already!

Could you tell me where you got this smoothly animated list control from?

/edit: Oh, and it seems to kill all the regular icons until I soft reset. See screnshot 3 for details.

/edit 2: I did not yet get it to start an application ^^ But I find it awesome that you can create such smooth applications using .NET CF.
