Apt 1.0

Apt, by Keith Lee Wilmot, is a unique palm application. It is something of a mix between a preferences application, a button launcher and a macro program. The most distinguishing feature from other applications is that almost everything it does is on a per-application basis. The combination of per-application settings and arbitrary combination of events and responses leads to a tool that let's you customize control of your device to your heart's content.

Apt's unique combination of per-application settings and arbitrary combinations of events and responses let's you customize control of your device to your heart's content.

Here are some examples of what is possible:

  • set IR always off except in apps where you need to beam
  • have on-screen graffiti only where you need it (it can get in the way other places)
  • turn off those annoying system sounds, except for in your speaking dictionary app
  • keep prying eyes away from particular apps, but access them quickly yourself
  • have different colour themes for different apps
  • change your hotsync name and keep using those apps registered with the old name
  • call up your most-used apps and functions extremely quickly
  • different macros for differet programs
  • launch apps extremely quickly by letter. Just start writing whenever a field does not have focus
  • enable all apps that require it after a soft reset
  • dim brightness slowly down in some apps to save energy when you're not using them. As soon as you tap, restore brightness to normal.
  • scroll with pen strokes either in a fixed position or anywhere on the screen
  • use your 5-way navigator with older games that only read hard keys usually.
  • make a little diagonal stroke in the corner of the screen (or wherever you like) to rotate it
  • call up different applications depending which SD card you insert
  • setup a 'loop' of applications: use the same button to cycle through the applications in the loop.
  • clear a fields text with a single swipe through the middle
  • have a 'star' menu with your most used apps always on the 5-way navigator and the most recent apps handy below
  • turn on onscreen graffiti when command bar comes up, turn off when it's gone
  • when you go to app A, first visit app B (automatically) to enable a feature. When you leave app A, go to app B and disbable the feature again.
  • and soooo much more...
