Task Facade is a cool, animated Vista-style task-manager that shows all running programs tiled on your screen.
Runs on any WM version and any resolution.

Tried it on Elf, stock wm6 rom. Works quite well, both from internal memory and from Storage Card! Eats about 2MB of memory while running with 6-7 tasks. Definitely awesome for a beta version, didn't try to figure out skinning yet so I don't know if it works. Only complaint is the bottom bar, it would look much better full screen. Super thanks for taking the time to update the code!

edit: and about 1.5MB without any tasks open. Wheep, that's a lot!

well, can't argue on that.

even worse, not only it keeps snapshots of all running apps. It takes new ones from time to time, so some productivity overhead as well.

for me, just keep Vista in mind. ;)

Hey gps-lover. Huge thanks for taking the lead on this. Couple of things that I think should be addressed. First of all, I agree that the bottom bar isn't really necessary. Full screen would be welcome here. Also, the re-addition of settings back into the program is needed, and I'd love to see the ability to set a background image, not just a color. Another thing I'd like to see is to have tap-and-hold close a program. Having thumbnails of programs, but then having to click a teeny tiny X if you want to close one kind of defeats part of the purpose to me, and since tap-and-hold presently does nothing, that seems like a logical choice. And finally, is there any way to have Dynamo take a screenshot of a program running in the background? I ask because sometimes (many times) it will take a screenshot of a program as it is being minimized, or else it won't have taken it before something significantly changed on the screen so that the thumbnail displayed does not match up with the program. If Dynamo could take screenshots of background programs and display those, it would solve this nagging issue.

Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to work on this great program!

Same problem here! Does the "normal" wait cursor stop? Is it only a problem with MWC2?

I found this to be a bit on the slow side on Diamond, but it's still a terriffic start. Keep optimizing and you'll have a legend of a program that'll be included in every custom ROM on the planet. :)

Once upon a time there was a unique graphical task switcher called Dynamo:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=312232

Now the author published its sources:

Here is an updated version to be run on wm6 and any resolutions. Al least it should. :-/
Just extract it into /Program Files and map it to some button.

This is the first beta version. Please don't take it seriously.

I get un supported resolution om my omnia 240x400

can you change somthing to get it to work?
