VJTodayButton

WM2003 (should work on WM5 but untested)

This simple app needs to be assigned to a Hardware Key using the control panel.
Then, when the assigned hardware button is pressed, the PDA will switch from your current application to the Today Screen. When you let go of the assigned key, it will jump back to the application you were previously in.

This app is used for instance to quickly view the Today screen whilst you are in a call or making some notes.

Remember: Press and hold the hardware button and you'll see a little icon in the top left.
Let go, and you should go back to where you were.

If you want to stay in the Today screen, just click on the little icon in the top left.

The cab will install two versions, TodayButton and TodayButtonOFF.

TodayButtonOFF
will cause the PocketPC to switch itself immediately off when you've finished looking at the today screen. This is so that you can assign a hardware key and use it to switch on the PPC, look at the today screen, and immediately switch off when you're finished. This version is still not perfect, but try it and see if it works.

Do not launch it directly by stylus clicking in the programs menu. If you do, it'll go to the Today screen but you'll lose your hardware buttons for 45 seconds.

This program will not work perfectly with button redefiners like ButtonMax etc. Assign it to a key not being processed by ButtonMax etc.
