           Summary: Usability issues in combo box menus
           Product: OpenMoko

        OS/Version: MacOS X

The combo box used for the application category section is fiddly to use. All of
the categories should always be visible to avoid the need to scroll up (which is
pretty hard).

The combos should also be sticky, one click to display, and a click to select an
item, a method to close the combo could be provided by always having a close
icon at the top. See screenshot for an mock up of how this would look.

Also, the drop down menu top left which selects currently open apps is way too
small, there's plenty of screen space for there to be more spacing and have the
text larger.
