One of the annoyances with certain applications is that you need to restart them when you reboot. Most applications that need to be on all the time are smart enough to reinitiate when you reboot or give you the option for them to run at startup. Others like Viigo do not have this option.
Summer let me know that ShaoSoft released the free Start Me Up application to solve this exact problem. You can set what applications you wish to starts and then wait a few seconds before rebooting. You can even set a restart delay so that applications will only fire up 30 seconds after the reboot so that the device is already connected to the internet and initiated.August 3, 2009 at 2:02 PM #179244

I’m trying to think what apps I might need this for? Can anyone suggest an important app that you would use this to auto-start after a reboot?August 3, 2009 at 2:08 PM #179245
Gmail… Viigo…August 3, 2009 at 2:09 PM #179246
It doesn’t work on bold. If you change startup delay, when you reboot it’s still 8 sec. Too low to let Beejive login.August 3, 2009 at 2:29 PM #179247
It shouldn’t have an issues on the Bold, thats the device I used to primarily test this on. What OS are you running?August 3, 2009 at 2:31 PM #179248
Did you try to set a different startup delay? it says “settings saved” but when you reboot… still 8sec…August 3, 2009 at 3:48 PM #179249
Are you rebooting right after you save settings? I believe there is an issue with the BB OS that even tho the app requests the settings to be saved, the OS caches the settings but doesnt commit them immediately, try saving your settings, waiting 30 seconds then rebooting.August 3, 2009 at 5:44 PM #179250
The only use I have for this is MyAlarm, since it does not start up on its own. And now I can schedule a daily QuickPull while I’m sleeping!August 3, 2009 at 10:04 PM #179251
