August 17, 2010

UltimateFavesPRO 2.6 introduces a special new MultiTasking feature: It integrates seamlessly with your favorite home app, and allows you to launch any carousel anytime, anywhere, simply by double tapping the Home button on your phone!

After installing the update, when you first press Home, the following dialog will be displayed:

Set UltimateFavesPRO as your home-screen app.

Since this is the first time,  a configuration wizard will be displayed: In the first step, select your favorite home app from the list.

Step 1: Select your favorite Home app

If this is the first time you installed the application and you don’t have any carousels defined, the following screen will be displayed:

Step 2: If you don't have any carousels defined, the default one will be displayed.

You can always start the wizard again by pressing menu -> Settings -> Home screen settings after you have created a few carousels, and then the screen would look like this:

Step 2: Select the carousel you want to pop when double-tapping the Home button

This is where you select the carousel you want to launch when you double-tap the Home button.

The final step is only relevant if you reached the wizard from the settings screen, and you currently have another default home app set as default:

Step 3: Only relevant if you started the procedure from the settings menu, and not by pressing home)

After pressing done, follow the on screen instructions if needed, and you’re all set: Double-tap the Home button and you can access your carousels from anywhere!
