Just trying a new version and something springs to mind...
Would it be possible to create your own custom profiles? Smartphone have a lot more profiles than you have available, but this could easily be resolved if it allowed be to create my own profiles (something I also wanted when I had an MPX200!!)
Indicentally... I've noticed something seems to be leaking memory on my phone. I don't know if its your profiles app, but I didn't notice it before I installed it... Has anyone else noticed it? Over the course of a day, my phone drops from about 14mb free down to about 5!! The only other thing I'm running is the Spb Pocket Plus & Weather plugins so it could be one of them...
There is a memory leak that I found in V2.01b-beta1 but it appears to be pretty small. I ran a test harness for over 12 hours which selects a new profile every 5 seconds. Over that period of time which is a lot of profile switching it increased the memory usage by a couple of %. I am still looking for that leak.
The problem with using more than 5 profiles is where do you display them? I'm open to suggestions as the design will allow it if we can work out a graceful solution to display them.
Some ideas off the top are to have a "more profiles" button somewhere to display any greater than 5.
You can of course set your profiles to be what you want already. Only the 5th (far right) is special. But even that is being investigated. Might make changes to allow any profile to sync with outlook. Could then have multiple profiles capable of syncing with outlook or whatever one you choose.
BTW Ive been working on V2.01c-beta1 and have modularised the system even further.
Now the todayscreen dll is only 72Kb and feeds off most of the processing to helper apps.
There is now an option to select where your custom ringtone are stored and used from.
Default = \Windows\Rings
Storage = \Storage
Storage Card = \Storage Card
Custom = \whereveryouwant.
This updates the system and sets everything up for use by the device.
Also it has a tray based frontend that can be used instead of the todayscreen plugin.
Lots of testing still required before I post the new version but its all looking good so far.
