Enabling fast access to 2nd screen of Apps in Apps Menu

Posted on 2009-12-15 13:39 UTC by Philip Dean. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop, User Experience.

Currently, to get to Apps on the 2nd screen of the Application Menu, you first need to press the Application Menu icon on the top left of your desktop and then hit the "More" icon on the bottom right of the first screen in the Apps Menu.

 

It might only be two clicks, but it seems hugely unnecessary to have to click in one corner of the screen and then move to click in the other corner of the screen to bring up the list of apps you have installed.

Solution #1: Allow "More" icon as a Desktop Shortcut

Posted on 2009-12-15 13:39 UTC by Philip Dean.

The "More" icon should be in the list of available shortcuts to add to your desktop.

 

Once on your desktop, clicking the "More" icon will take you straight to the 2nd screen of apps in the Applications Menu.

Solution #4: Create a Method to Enter Menu at any Time with Key Combination or Touch Gesture

Posted on 2009-12-16 05:43 UTC by Mark Murfin III.

There is currently a key combination (CTRL + BACKSPACE) to open the task manager that seems to work from anywhere in the device, even in full screen applications.

This solution proposes the creation of a second key combination or touch screen gesture that will pull up the full menu from anywhere.

Make it CTRL + ENTER or something.

Solution #5: Allow to reorganize ourself the Apps menu

Posted on 2009-12-16 15:09 UTC by Xavier Hallade.

Allow to reorganize the menu so we can add the applications we want on the 1st screen and organize then into directories if we want. Just like how it works on symbian devices.

Solution #6: Remove "More.." altogether

Posted on 2010-02-08 04:52 UTC by Venomrush ..

In the next firmware update after PR1.1 there won't be "More.." anymore so this brainstorm now becomes invalid.

All applications will be packed into a single scrollable screen.
