Red Pill Mode

The Hildon Application Manager has a special hidden mode that makes it more power user friendly and gives you access to features that are not yet considered to be ready for everybody. This mode used to be an easter egg, but we feel we have to give it away officially now since it is so useful.


Go to "Tools > Application catalogue", click "New", enter "matrix" into the "Web Address" field, click "Cancel". Choosing the red pill will activate the red pill mode, obviously, and chosing the blue one will deactivate it.


After activating the red pill mode, the following additional settings are available in "Tools > Settings".
