(Control Panel > General > About product)

-tap the application menu in the upper left corner.  In the bottom right corner
is an icon labelled "More..."

-tap the application menu in the upper left corner.  Use finger scrolling
(up-finger motion) to see more applications that can be launched.  Can scroll
though in one view all the applications on the device.  Jumping pages can be
accomplished by side swipe motions.

- must tap the "More..." button to see more applications.  Once in the "More"
area, can scroll up and down on that page, but then need to tap outside to get
to the main page.


None that affects this

The use of the "More..." button seems to be inconsistent with the rest of the
UI.  If multi-page support is required, perhaps sideways swipes of the screen
can act as a page-up or page-down.  As a user, I would expect to be able to
scroll the entire list of apps in the main view.

I'm not entirely against this idea to be honest.
Comment 2 Tim Watt 2009-12-23 23:43:00 UTC
it would be nice to create categories too.
Comment 3 Urho Konttori 2009-12-26 11:05:32 UTC
fixed in pr1.2. there wont be any categories. afaik this is not integrated yet.
so i wont mark it as fixed. but i could be wrong about the timing. it might  be
alerady integrated.

Categories can still be created by editing the menu files, the change to a flat
menu is just a configuration file change.

Sorry for the bugspam but is this configurable or not? And if so where?

This will not be configurable through the User Interface, but by editing
corresponding files on the device. Also see

This has been fixed in the internal build version
(Note: 2009/2010 is the year, and the number after is the week.)

A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal
build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public
Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as

Comment 9 Urho Konttori 2010-02-20 22:49:28 UTC
We agreed to do this after deciding to also allow reordering of the menu. This
makes user able to put the most important items in the top, and thus,
hopefully, next to never, have to scroll down at all.
Comment 10 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2010-03-15 20:53:51 UTC
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
