How to Get the Programs Tab Back on Manila 2.5
One of the most sorely missed features removed from HTC’s Manila interface in version 2.5 was the traditional Programs tab. An alternative to the stock Windows Mobile start menu, the tab offered many spaces for ‘quick links’ (like those found on the home tab) to your most-used applications.
Thankfully, HTC replaced this feature in Manila 2.6, as found in the HTC Qilin ROM. XDA member kimi_sae_ireba has ported this tab for use in the more widely used Sense 2.5 – thereby allowing users of phones unlikely to receive an official update to use the tab.
The tab itself supports both portrait and landscape orientations and is available for download in the mod thread. It can be used on any WVGA or VGA device using Manila 2.5.
