  • Tap the minutes (hotspot #1) to go to the Preferences screen 
  • Tap 'Advanced settings' 
  • Uncheck the 'Default hour action' checkbox 
  • Tap the 'Select hour click action' and wait for the applications to load (this can take some time, depending on how many applications you have installed on your phone) 
  • When the applications list appears, locate the application you want to launch and tap it 
  • Press the Home button to return to your home screen
