To The Point (TTP)

To The Point (TTP) v0.90 screenshot

Here's a public launch of a tiny background project of mine. To The Point (short: TTP) is a small native S60 3rd edition application specialized for quick viewing of screenshot-size images on your mobile screen with minimum clicks.

What you can do with TTP? I use it like this:

  • I have either imported full-screen size images (320x240 on my E61i) from my photo collection or taken full-screen screenshots of them e.g. with http://www.antonypranata.com/screenshot.
  • I have loaded them into TTP under separate number keys for quick viewing
  • I have put TTP as one of my active standby applications
  • Now I can access full screen images with maximum of two clicks straight from the idle screen!

    • When TTP is run, the image assigned to the number "5"-key is loaded immediately
    • If I now press e.g. the "3"-key, or the left arrow, image assigned under that key is now displayed. The same goes with all the number keys.
    • "*" and "#" keys cycle through the images

The use case above was my reason to write this application. Basically it does that but not much else. It is not suitable for generic gallery application as it does not e.g. scale your images, and you are not able to browse the images that are on the phone.

Naturally the application has bugs and known issues. If you find a bug that can be easily reproduced please let me know. There are no guarantees of timely fix, though. ;)
