More Applications Shortcuts on Home Screen

Hi. Is there an application that puts more than 6 shortcuts on Home Screen? I'm using Epocware Handy Shell, especially for it's weather plugin, but I need more than 6 installed applications shortcuts on screen.

Smile Homescreen And Shortcuts

I don't know for your device but normally one can change the "Homescreen" :
Instruments > Settings > General > Personally > Standby Mode > 1. Active Standby : Off . 2. Make Shortcuts : 7 items .

I'm using Nokia E66, but it seems it doesn't have the menu you just mentioned. Instead, it shows:

Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Personalization > and here it shows 8 submenus: Display, Home Screen, Tones, Themes, Language, Voice Comms, Notification Light and One-Touch Keys.

There is no way to change the number of application shortcuts in Active Home Screen (the screen that shows shortcuts), under the Home Screen submenu. Only 6 are listed.

If I disable Active Home Screen, as you said, there is no "Make Shortcuts" or something else similar.

I expect to use third party software to change my home screen (just like the Epocware Handy Shell does), not necessarily E66 own settings, but something that enables more than 6 app. shortcuts on-screen.

Thanks.

Smile Shortcuts

I am using E90 , has this ability . Curious about this "One touch keys" though .
There is a nice free application manager called JBakTaskman . You can set many shortcuts 1,2,3 .... 0 and a,b,c,.....,z . The app is connected by Longpress the Menu button .

Thanks, I'll try that program. It seems the level of customization is different among Nokia's smartphones. Too bad.

Says right on the website that you'll need to supply your own certificate for the program to run.

How do I do that?

I've extracted it, and run the install and sure enough it needs a certificate.........

Thanks
