Why do I think this is going to be just like the guys who got crushed by Apple about a month ago because they thought mp3 player app was too similar to the iPod interface?
The lawyers are running the world now...
i don't think they have too much to worry about, this program has been out for at least 2 years, because that's how long ago i first purchased it. it truly is one of the most useful apps you can have because of it's ability to have application specific profiles. for instance, i press the itask button to launch phatpad, and then press the same button again to open a new phatpad document. i also use it to reassign scroll up and down, and annotations in ms reader, because the d-pad on an ipaq 5555 has to be the most poorly thoughtout idea in the pocketpc world. (sigh... i miss my 3975 sometimes...)
