General Screen Elements

An Apt profile is divided over 5 screens. However, there are some controls present on all the screens, along the top line.


On the left, you see the Buttons tab is selected, and a target app is being chosen.

Note that the Contacts app is written in bold, meaning there are some preferences set for that app.

Target Selector Drop-Down List

Indicates the target to which the current settings apply. App names written in bold in an app pulldown are apps for which Apt has a preferences block assigned. This does not, however, mean that there are any preferences enabled in the block. (Note: from version 1.2 of Apt, the second and third items are *Tag 1* and *Tag 2*, which will be explained elsewhere.)

"+" Square Button

Tap to toggle the state of this button. When pressed, the target selector popup will only show apps for which Apt has a preference block.

Go Button

Leave Apt and launch the current target app. This button will not function for a VFS-based application unless Apt is enabled, because otherwise the necessary cleanup work will not be performed.

Screen Selector Tabs

Used to change the screen and indicate the current screen: Prefs, Prefs+, Buttons, Graffiti, Events.

Profile Changed Indicator

If a little box appears below a screen selector, it indicates that one or more of the controls within that screen have been changed (you can see one on the Prefs screenshot below).

To enable 5-way navigation support, press left, right or centre on the navigator pad. Once enabled it will remain until you exit Apt.
