Jhor - Launch Manager This is the kind of launcher I've been dreaming of for a long time in Windows Mobile. Simple and Practical! I thought no developer could ever think of this method as they are too busy cluttering the today screen!
To those who can't imagine why this method is better than a Today-plug-in then here's an example scenario:
I'm composing a sentence in messenger until I come across a word that requires a "quick computation". So I simply run "Launch Manager" then tap calculator. After I'm done with calculator, close it and I'm automatically back to the messaging app where I left! :) Try the same scenario using Today-plug-in shortcuts and you'll get annoyed.
Note: It's important to change the setting to "Close after launch".
