I hope you are successfully charging your batteries after that pre-summer rush of 1.0 release to 1.2 (not to mention all the beta versions)
Just upgraded to a Treo Centro to replace my dying Palm (new digi needed, again) & failing cell phone… & I noticed that Apt does nicely implement using the little white Option key- oHrd1 etc; but a good number of other applications are using combinations of Opt + whatever Hard Key, not leaving as much flexibility for Apt users.
I was inspired to write this based on the options I saw in the popup calculator app Snapcalc5 which uses 'oHardKey' & 'oHardkey press & hold', much like Apt which uses 1 Hard2…. or 2Hrd2 etc.
So I would hope to see in the future that Apt uses something like this, the snapcalc5 'oHrd2 press & hold' as well as '1 oHrd2 - where the Opt key is held down while the selected Hrd key is also held for 1, 2, or 3 seconds. Also, it would be nice to do Opt+Letter Key & Opt+LetterKey Hold for 1, 2, or 3 seconds. I don't know if it would be feasible to implement this based on how Treo's OS is coded, but it is worth a try to ask…
BTW, I noticed that Apt needs to be set to the VHigh mark in Apt->Settings->Apt Priority, at least for my device & set of apps/config, to recognize the 1, 2, or 3 second press & hold…. & some apps (Butler, Phone Technician, & Power Hero, very popular Treo-specific apps, & for good reason!) like to have the Prefs+ setting of 'Triggers off' implemented via the checkbox to allow the app to close, b/c if not, I can access the app, & make changes, but when I tap on the Close button - it doesn't…. otherwise I have no probs w/the VHigh
Any long time Treo/Apt users have tips to share for a Treo newbie?
