[APP] HomeScreenJump

I posted this at Tech@Play and so again wanted to added to my blog...

I was checking out XDA-Developers a few weeks ago and found a nice little App by dotcompt which is based on an app form the HTC Wildfire. It has now been updated to 2.0.

So I´ve decided to create a small app for our Rhodium:

Name: HomeScreenJump for TouchPro 2
Version: 2.0
Author: dotcompt
Requirements: .NET CF 3.5

Description: HomeScreen from where you can jump to the Manila Tab you want.
Tabs available: Home, People, Messages, Mail, Weather, Twitter, Music, Photos&Videos, Call History, eReader, Documents, GPS Tracker, Settings, Calendar, Internet, Manila TV, Stocks, Footprints, Facebook and Programs Tabs."
