One of my favorite features is the ability to assign a launch-on-letter-entry' popup list to a given app.
I have assigned launch-on-letter to my 2day app (much improved recently), where I can see my whole schedule & natively launch 4 apps that I have assigned in 2day's launcher. I have always wanted to be able to launch more apps fm 2day, but there wasn't much I could do about it.
Now I have Apt; so I can look at my schedule, see what is coming up for the day / week & whatever app I may need, I can call up by entering the first letter of that app's name & a menu will popup w/all apps that have that initial. 2day makes the datebook info ready at hand, in one screen w/other stuff as well, but Apt makes 2day even more robust with the launch-by-letter popup menu.
Until I started using the launch-on-letter feature, my favorite was having Apt recognize the mounting of my SD backup card's volume, launch my backup program & then pass on the command " /B " (control bar & "B") from the backup app's menu item: "New Backup /B".
I insert the card, & Apt does the rest for me. Way cool.
So far, w/the tap/stroke capability I have replaced McPhling, ButtonsEx assignments are now done by Apt, AutoOff - ditto. Macros in Apt work along w/mySkin (myKbd), which I still use for skinning (thanks Dr. Pruss). Since Apt launches DA's I no longer need to use ZLauncher's Quick Launch. In each case I am saving memory; & b/c I no longer need to use QL in ZL, I am also saving valuable memory used to hold apps that stay resident (cache is it?).
You have to love it when you get all that functionality in one place, keeping things simpler, less likely to crash b/c of two apps that do the same thing, & of course saving all that RAM & resident memory.
This app rocks!
