Integrate with Scenes in HTC Sense

The HTC Hero (and probably all subsequent HTC Android devices) allows the user to configure different desktops (scenes), with different widgets, shortcuts, backgrounds etc.

For example, a user can have 'Work', 'Home' and 'Out' scenes, and then switch between them for different activities, providing useful access for the given activity.

If locale could detect/control these scenes, it would enable both automatic switching of scenes based on rules, and different notification/network/etc profiles for each scene selected.

        HTC really do need to open up the HTC Sense API - having scenes controlled by Locale would make Scenes 100% more useful!

        If HTC Sense cannot be interacted with this, is there something similar (and open to interaction) from LauncherPro or any other like this?

        I 110% support tis as being a killer app for both Locale and HTC.

        I'm going to twitter them now!

        It would justify both locale and htc sense! whoa! get cracking, beloved codemonkeys!

        This is a really good idea. Couldn't someone perhaps make a plug-in?

        This would be a very helpful feature, and would certainly make scenes useful.

        Sounds only sensible (if you'll forgive the unintentional pun), honestly I thought that a plugin already existed for it and I just couldn't find it...

        The sales guy said this was already part of the Hero itself....HA. If you can get this to work I'd be allllllll FOR IT! Great Idea.

        Count me among those requesting this feature. HTC's Sense UI is great, and I'd love to see Locale take advantage of Sense's customization abilities.

        I actually downloaded Locale because i thought this feature existed. Hope it will be added soon!

        absolutely, would make a big difference to have all the home screens change to your work functions upon arriving to work!
