WM2003 (should work on WM5 but untested)
This simple app needs to be assigned to a Hardware Key using
the control panel.
Then, when the assigned hardware button is pressed, the PDA
will switch from your current application to the Today Screen.
When you let go of the assigned key, it will jump back to the
application you were previously in.
This app is used for instance to quickly view the Today screen
whilst you are in a call or making some notes.
Remember: Press and hold the hardware
button and you'll see a little icon in the top left.
Let go, and you should go back to where you were.
If you want to stay in the Today screen, just click on the
little icon in the top left.
The cab will install two versions,
TodayButtonOFF will cause the PocketPC to
switch itself immediately off when you've
finished looking at the today screen. This is so that you can
assign a hardware key and use it to switch on the PPC, look at
the today screen, and immediately switch
off when you're finished. This version is still not
perfect, but try it and see if it works.
Do not launch it directly by stylus clicking
in the programs menu. If you do, it'll go to the Today screen
but you'll lose your hardware buttons for 45 seconds.
This program will not work perfectly with button redefiners
like ButtonMax etc. Assign it to a key not
being processed by ButtonMax etc.
