    Could someone possibly create an application that allows you to set hotkeys for opening up programs. Like touch the screen 4 times fast and youtube opens. I know its possibly because of the tap twice 911 app.. So yea.. What do you think?

    I know it is because there is an app called Tap 911 for the iphone and you tap twice on the screen and it calls 911.

    Its possible but would it be reasonable? Maybe your playing a game and you tap the screen 4 times and it opens youtube? You can imagine other senarios I am sure

    Well obviously you would make it only work on the homescreen.

    The app would run as a process in the background.

    Say, you want to hide your editing apps like smb preferences and customize, etc.

    Are you serious? I don't mean to be a jerk but honestly. Tap 4 times quickly when your at the home screen OR tap onces on the youtube icon...worst case scenario you have to slide...This really would prove to be a pointless app after two minutes of use..if that.

    What do you mean are you serious. You must not understand the purpose of the hotkey. It is merely a shortcut. I simply want this so I can hide the editing apps such as summerboard and customize and make them only available by a hotkey.. such as tap 4 times on the screen, or tap on the right corner or the left..etc. Understand?

    No I am not lazy, I simply want to have my "editing" apps hidden and only activated by a certain touch combination.

    Doesn't matter i already found one for you in the installer

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    Goto Installer > Utilities > Tapp
    I hope it helped. Not sure what it does since i didn't get it to work. But it seems to be what you are looking for.
