Make sure to add support for multiple screens.
For hotcorners? Or what part of Appifyer? I might have to adjust the Start menu behaviour, but I think that's all (except for if/when I add hotcorners)
BTW, shameless self promotion: In its current branch 7plus also has support for customizable hot corner triggers
Heh, you are speaking to the master of self promotion, I think. Aslong as it's discrete.
BTW, how long has 7plus been up and running for? It has over 4k impressive downloads on code.google.
For the hotcorner maybe something like this? It is just a basic idea and can probably be improved. [...]
I use this method:[...]
Thanks to you both (alot, really!), I will definitely be able to use that. However, as I have not used hotcorners before and I always try to make things as userfriendly as possible (as opposed to "as configurable as possible, then let the user figure how to use stuff" <--- because that doesn't work with all users), would you care to enlighten me on the usage of hotcorners?
I use hotkeys when my left hand is on my keyboard (thus hotkey design is based upon lefthand, usually), and when for some reason the mouse is more comfortable, or I want to rest my hand, I use the mouse. With Appifyer's current "default" layout, #Space is a handy and logical hotkey (Spacebar "feels" like a menu?), and MClick on Startbutton allows for a one-click opening of the menu. Then, add an action for clicking/pressing the key for the app to launch. So it's two actions to launch an app without app-specific hotkeys. I cannot see how a hotcorner would make anything easier or faster, especially not if the hotcorner also requires a hotkey to be used.
What I WOULD however see useful is the ability to have a "hotcorner" appbar (sidebar) that appears on-demand when the mouse is scrolled into that area of the screen, like nimda suggested for something - when it's "bumped" into the side (hard, maybe?). With nimda's newly posted Animate-window-wrapper
I could make something like RocketDock
(but less fancy, of course), a fancy appbar hanging out on the side of the screen, invisible if you don't need it (and potentially toggle-visibility).
Another thing I could potentially see useful is using different corners of the screen to, in a very natural way, bring forth different app menus (good for people with many apps). Adding a MGR-system, potentially along with macro support, is at the moment of higher prio than hot-corners in the way that I understand you describing them. Have I missed the interaction-design point of hot-corners?
