Developer's Description

With RNS:: HBX you can launch over 16 applications with only 4 hard buttons of your Palm.

Now pressing each hard button pops up a window giving you a choice to launch one of 4 previously selected applications.
Additionally, you can assign 4 programs to the Calculator silk screen icon, as well as one the Page Up and one to the Page Down hard buttons.
Furthermore, Graffiti characters (letters, numbers, etc.) or keyboard keys may be bound to one program each.
Even more options that pop up with a single button press are: Clock, Battery Level indicator, Free Memory indicator, and Beam Receive option switch.
  • All these features make HBX much faster tool than any application launcher, or a simmilar program!
  • Special functions for Kyocera devices!
  • Special functions for Sony CliÃ?Æ?Ã?© SL and SJ devices!
  • Can launch applications stored on expansion cards!
