Default launching applications at startup

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, does anyone know a way/application that will allow me to choose additional applications to automatically start at startup? There are a few apps I have that don't have this feature built in, but which I would like to start automatically when I switch the phone on so that they run in the background and without me having to personally go switch them on.

I am using a BB 8900 with all latest software updates.

I don't believe there are these out there as you would need access to the API to run stuff at powerup.

I may be wrong however

Couldn't the API be bypassed with custom user input commands?

I stumbled across "start me up" a while back:

ShaoSoft - Blackberry Software - Products

Its free. I have it loaded on my bb, but don't use it so I can't comment on how well it works.
