Start Launcher is a tiny program, allowing you to assign any program to a short or long tap to the standard Windows Mobile Start Button.
The program is written without Dot Net, using Native C++, so it's small, does not consume resources. Works on QVGA, VGA, WQVGA and WVGA devices with WM2003, 5, 6, 6.1, 6.5 (if the Start button placed on the left upper corner only).

Homepage (Russian site!): http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=137037

The latest version is 2.5
The program includes config utility. After install you should go to Start->Programs->Start Launcher and assign a program to separately long and short tap. If you prefer keeping default action for short tap (start menu), just don't mark corresponding field.

I use this program for WiFi radio toggling, some guys call separate launcher etc.
The program is freeware for all users, but you can donate. Any feedback is welcome.

Please, donate: PayPal.

I participated in beta testing of the program. Now it's the one of my "must have" software. Use it on my Touch HD for WiFi switch. Very useful :)

You told that you can use it with WVGA. But you can choose only between VGA and QVGA?

What about WVGA? :confused:

Bigbest, what do you you mean - other function? What are different parameters? If you mean - what are parameters of a program? you should look in it's documentation. Start Launcher allows launch anything with (it's pro!) any parameter.
You can launch simple applications without any parameters - should work.

Can I use this to mark all inbox messages read? Or would that require a separate program that this launches? It would be extremely helpful when reading from the preview in touchflo.

Why not? Just find a way to create shortcut for reading your inbox. Then you just assign this shortcut and all done :)

Is it right that the prog assign only the left upper corner? Because with the new 6.5 (build 23060) bottom start-sign it doesn´t work. Or can I "map" it to the left bottom?
