    Strange, I had no weather issue. Never noticed the clock wasn't on the add item list.

    I don't always use a third party app launcher, but when I do, I prefer QuickLaunch.

    This is why I love this app, CheetahAce is always making it better!

    Seriously man, I appreciate the fact that you don't stop working to refine and add functionality to QuickLaunch. Keep up the great work!

    Question for you CheetahAce...I notice when I change themes I have to reset the "Q" key to launch or it will default to the space key, even though when I open my options it says it's set for the "Q" key. Is there a fix for this or is it deliberate?

    that's what themes do. you don't have to reset the hotkey in quicklaunch.
    quicklaunch will reset the hotkey after the first time you use it following a theme change.

    before i release the update can someone test the above scenario regarding theme changes for me.

    1. set hotkey to quicklaunch (example: 'Q')
    2. verify hotkey works
    3. change your theme
    4. open quicklaunch somehow (Q probably wont work immediately after theme change)
    5. dont do anything in quicklaunch
    6. close quicklaunch
    7. try the 'Q' key.

    let me know.
    thanks.

    Could you please explain how to get this update? I didn't see a way to do it on the site and I didn't get any messages to my device about it.

    Also, why has Slacker Radio quit working with QuickLaunch? Awhile back I updated Slacker and since then I cannot launch it via the menu or with the hotkey S I assigned to it like I used to be able to. Tried removing it and readding and same thing.

    it works this way if the theme has the space key set for QL. themes with no QL launcher, not on the first try.

    ... meaning if a theme has a space key set for QL then the above steps will reset the hotkey to 'Q'?

    and if the theme has no QL hotkey the above steps will NOT reset the 'Q' key when starting quicklaunch?

    it will also work with the 'Q' key if the space key is set for QL after your fix. the space key will continue to launch QL as well

    and if the theme has no QL hotkey the above steps will NOT reset the 'Q' key when starting quicklaunch?
    it will reset it, but I had to do it between 3 and 5 times depending on the theme to get it to work properly-where the other themes did it the first time.

    got it. i think.
    try this for me:

    set it to 'q' from ql options.
    change your theme to a theme that takes a few times for ql to reset it.
    open ql and keep it open for about 5-7 seconds.
    close ql
    try the 'q' key.

    let me know if that seems to work any differently.
    thanks.

    Does it have to be the Q key cause I have Qsms set on there.

    Well anyways I did it with the Y key as above and it still dont open I have to set it again for it to work.

    Works fine when it set on spacebar though.

    When I clicked the link I received regarding the upgrade, (I just purchased days ago) it downloads the same version as I have on the phone. Then I get a message "do I want to replace 2.20.2 with 2.20.2".

    Also, for some reason, when I enter a website into Q L, it does not load, but I get a time out error.

    Thanks for your help.
