Taskbar Launcher for WM 6.5.3
We’ve had a few different task-managers and their respective updates as items on our front-page. Today I’m not going to add yet another taskmanager to this list. Taskbar Launcher made by user RAMMANN is different because isn’t a taskmanager. The main function for taskbar launcher is to replace the regular top taskbar notification area from Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and up builds.

Nicest feature is that you can easily customize the graphics and the programs to be launched from it.

Continue on to the application thread.
