HomeScreenJump now available for Sense 2.5

For those who don't follow Android news, about a week ago the HTC Wildfire became official. One cool trick that HTC added was the ability to jump to different screens in Sense via multi-selector screen, instead of sliding all over the place. (See Tracy & Matt's hands on at 0:42)

And anyone who's used Sense 2.5 on WinMo can know the feeling of having to slide the tabs all over the place to just find that one you're looking to use right now. It can be frustrating.

Well combine those two ideas and you have HomeScreenJump from XDA member dotcompt!

Simply install the HomeScreenJump.cab and tap the icon to run and there you go.  Want to go the extra step? Install two more .cab files and now you can map it to your Start button as a long press.  Now you can call it up wherever, whenever.

Our thoughts? We highly recommend this mod. And do map it to the Start key. This method makes it very fast, efficient and darn it all it just works well. You now have quick-access to your Home, People, Messages, Mail, Weather, Twitter and Programs tabs.

  • WOW,that's wonderful.Going to install it...Now moving to any Sense 2.5 tab from any place seems quite easy...
  • BE CAREFUL HD2/LEO owner ! It doesn't work well or not at all when you use the remap key cab, it is made for Rhodium at 1st. If you are experiencing problems after installing (no hard key working after ), remove all the cab AND principaly the one called "Keyboard Controller" than soft reset. Tried on HD2 under 1.66FR Regards.
