I set it as a quick launch app. Settings > Applications > Quick Launch

I set it as keypad shortcut: search + d

On the physical keypad there is a search button. Looks just like the search button, on the touch screen. You press that button and whatever lettered key to trigger the app. You can even use the touch search + keypad to launch. If the virtual keyboard was multitouch you could probably trigger them from the virtual keypad.

This is SUPERB! I was looking around VerizonWireless and other vendors trying to find the Multimedia dock. NO NEED NOW.

I used the Storm dock for the past year and loved it. This little piece of software replaces it. Good find.

I got the car mount today. Works just as advertised. Well pleased.

I don't know about ABUSED, but I'm sure this app will be USED. This is my new STORM replacement alarm clock.

As a prof, I have a different wake-up call time every day. The Droid app is perfect for tweaking my schedule to college classes. Now if Audible.com would just create an audible book application, I'd be done.

I was just checking out the market and found this awesome application.

DockRunner allows for your phone to go INTO the multimedia dock mode without the phone actually being in the dock. You probably just need to make a stand for the phone to sit in yourself, but that isn't too hard.

I just wish the charging port was on the other side. I will update this post when I can find the app on Androlib, but its definitely in the market.

Search for DockRunner.


Good stuff thanks....here is a write up..

Installed, works as advertised, glad I returned my dock last night. thanks a bunch.

Why's that?

I find the DROID Dock to be very a convenient and good looking way to charge the phone.

One thing that it could use is an audio out jack so as to hook it into an audio system.

I downloaded it and I couldn't get out of landscape mode. I had to reboot. I deleted the app and may retry.
Is there an app for navigation dock?

you get out of landscape mode by running the app again.

I actually ran into the issue where after you use dockrunner, then run it again to put it back into portrait mode, once I locked the phone I couldn't get it to turn back on. Tried everything. Had to pull the battery.

Lots of people are noting this. I'm going to throw an email to the developer and see what sort of info they have on this.
