Update – ActionScreen With Landscape Support for Windows Mobile

Still using the wonderful Windows Mobile? Then, you may remember ActionScreen. XDA member Skrobel was tired of the lack of support for landscape, so he decided to develop a 12-icon ActionScreen that supported that orientation. The latest version has a fixed SW_MINIMIZE, so that the app minimizes instead of going to the background. Moreover, it now supports non-Sense interfaces (Today Screen and Titanium tested). Working on WVGA resolutions only.
Please leave feedback for the developer.

Hello

I liked the idea of an ActionScreen ever since I met with this program for a first time (it was on a Sense 2.1 stock ROM so it was really handy).

But as I am a Rhodium owner, I always had problem with Landscape orientation. The Smaberg’s ActionScreen was showing only 2 rows of icons in Landscape or wasn’t showing at all. So with the encouragement by Jackos I started to develop my own application based very much on the original idea of the 12-icon ActionScreen from Smaberg. As I am definitely not a programmer I started to learn Basic4PPC for a starter. Then, after I discovered how many environment restrictions it gives I switched to C#.

What I present here is a preliminary version which has full Landscape support (the app will run without problems in Landscape and will change it’s layout properly even if there will be an orientation change while program is shown).

* NEW * – The whole app has been rewritten from scratch. Also changed to the C# + NetCF as I thought it will solve most of my memory problems…

Continue to the application thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
