New Application: LaunchPads
I am the maker of the new software: LaunchPads
The software is already in Version 1.2 because I already fixed some bugs and added new features.
The software allows you to launch custom applications via the side button, fast and easy.
Through this you don't have to go back to the home screen to launch your applications.
This thread is intended to improve the program, so if you have any suggestions, please post them here and I will try my best to add them to a new version.

I do not have access to the discount-price at the crackberry store.
There are some other shops where there is a discount at the moment: mobihand.com and everythingberry.com!
Sorry about that; can't change it!

BBA - thanks for this app and especially for adding the 'Text'/number, 'Messenger'/PIN, and 'Browser'/URL options! I bought mine yesterday and really like it. Like others, I've assigned it to a convenience key so it's always accessible.
Like others have said, being able to pick applications from a list to configure the buttons would be easiest. Had to experiment by trial and error to figure out which module to use for Viigo - eventually found that com_virtualreach_connect_newsapp_app_se was the right one.
One other suggestion would be to lay out the buttons in a 2 column (6 rows per screen) table to show as many buttons as possible on one screen. I can easily see using many more buttons by the time I add favorite web pages, apps, and everything else. It would limit the width of the button to a fixed size, but that wouldn't likely be a problem if you could use a short user-defined button name instead of the html address (typically the longest button name).Palm Pilot-->Handspring Visor-->Treo 300-->Treo 600-->Treo 650-->Treo 700p+E62-->Treo700p+Curve (8300)-->Curve (8330)-->Tour (9630)->EVO

I really like this suggestion if this is at all possible. Having the buttons side-by-side would be great! The button for a phone number could be "Call," the button for the email address could be "email," and the button for the web page could be "URL."
Again, Fabian... you are awesome!! Keep crackin'!

I will try to implement that in a future version! Great idea guys...keep them coming.
I also work on an easier way to add modules.
It's nice to hear that you like the application; I will try my best to make it better!

Agree completely. It's a straighforward app, so the screenshots you've seen are exactly what you get. It works as advertised.Palm Pilot-->Handspring Visor-->Treo 300-->Treo 600-->Treo 650-->Treo 700p+E62-->Treo700p+Curve (8300)-->Curve (8330)-->Tour (9630)->EVO

I have been using Launchpads since version 1.0. I really love this program, especially for those of us with only 1 conveinence key it is awesome. Fabian you have really made my Crackberrying much easier!
Trust me get this app, it is well worth the new price.
I was planning on releasing v1.4 with a trial version where you can only use one button. But I don't think it's necessary, is it?
