Start Menu in your Palm device that pops up anywhere!RNS:: logo
Hi-Launcher adapts the Start Menu known from desktop computers to Palm OS handhelds.
This lets you switch between your PDA applications immediately and directly!
You can select a triggering button that will pop-up the Menu over any running application.
