I tend to rely on Recent Apps list to bounce between apps I use most often, as a sort of day-long history, for example. Is there a trick to increasing how many apps are listed in the default Recent Apps list (long-press home > Recent Apps)? I believe it's limited to 8, is there a trick/app which would increase it? Picture the PC Alt-Tab menu when you have 10+ programs open. Perhaps it makes more sense on a phone (from a resources perspective) to limit the number of apps on the Recent Apps list.
I'm not looking for a task-killing app, but a task-switching app. Would this be solved if I looked into a tasker app?
EDIT1: Using Advanced Task Killer as a switching app is a workaround. Still looking for an answer that literally increases the number of apps shown after long-pressing home.
EDIT2: Another very similar question had this answer, which is more convenient than Advanced Task Killer, IMO. Still, I would prefer a solution that would incorporate long-pressing Home, like the original Recent Apps list.
