View Full Version : New DA launcher: Power DA
01-16-2003, 04:10 PM
Hello... I'm the developer of Power DA. Just thought I'd let you know that I just released it :) It's a Desk Accessory launcher for Palm OS 5 (sorry, it only works under OS5). It has some things that the other DA launchers for OS5 don't have (including more launching methods). I'll be adding some more things like hires+ support and more launching methods for the next version.

:) Please give any suggestions you have too! I'll probably implement them.

Lovely DA Launcher. Nice clean interface & works well on OS5. I like the clean DA pop-up list too . . .
I would like to see a way to launch DAs while graffiti is minimized and the NX is in tablet mode. Maybe a tap & hold on the battery icon or something similar, or maybe a choice of places to tap on the status bar (so people could decide for themselves instead of having only 1 choice). That's what I'd REALLY like. The command line is kind of funky to get to with VG minimized....just my .02.
ALSO, the calc/favs selection does not work with my NX. Hard buttons work just fine.
It might also be helpful if the up/down buttons and/or scroll button could be used to select a DA.
You really did a nice job on it! =) Wish I had the skilz....

Yeah, I've been thinking about more ways to launch it that would be good for the NX. I'll look into interfacing with the status bar. I might also try a method that lets you hold down the jog dial for 2 seconds or something and it will bring up the list.
Re: calc button, it worked in my testing, I'll have to look into that. Thanks for pointing that out.
I'll be coming out with a new version that fixes up a couple little things in a few days, and I'll add the up/down and jogdial scroll support (and maybe T|T dpad support). The version after that will have a few more launching methods (and maybe a Custom method so that you can choose any hardware button on your device.)
Thank you once again :) it has been fun developing this application
