Someone’s in a giving mood! Sam from Fonware contacted me to let me know that their ShortcutMe application has been updated. To recap, ShortcutMe is an application that allows you to create multiple shortcuts on each convenience key. So click once for one app, click twice for another, click three times…you get the idea. If you want more info you can check out our full ShortCutMe Review here. Here’s what you can find in version 3.6.8.1:

  • Support for Storm 2, Bold 9700 and generally OS 5.0
  • New Bluetooth toggling feature that is faster and doesn’t require parameter settings
  • Toggle Bedside Mode using shortcuts. Set "BedsideModeToggle" to one of your multiple click shortcuts (i.e. click left conv. key 3 times before you sleep to save battery and stop messages from waking you up. Click conv. key 3 times again when you wake up), or set it as one of your main shortcuts (launch by for example clicking conv key + T B)
  • Toggle application using shortcuts. Set "ApplicationToggle" to one of your multiple click shortcuts (i..e. double click left conv key to toggle between last 2 apps you have been using), or set it as one of your main shortcuts
  • Faster response time

CONTEST: We have 10 free copies as well as 40 50% off copies to give away. To enter, please leave a comment on this post. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment - multiple submissions won't count.

ShortCutMe sells for $4.99. You can learn more about ShortCutMe and purchase it here.

Shortcut makes my Blackberry easier to be used.
Fonware makes shortcut more useful than just "short".
With added support for OS5, it is best shortcuts.

Cheers.

1967LS2

Is there a shortcut to winning this contest?

blueyestm

ooo I'll take a copy : )

ten08#CB

I've been using this for over 5 months, and it's the best thing that's ever happened to my Pearl! After trying all of the available launching apps out there, this is the only one that excels with the SureType keyboard, and doesn't require any scrolling. The MultiClick feature is the icing on the cake.

n0m0n

I wish that the ShortcutMe option was the 4th click verse the first.
I rather get to the app's that I want rather then always first calling up the app itself.

ten08#CB

It has to be the 1st screen up, so that you can access ALL of your shortcuts via the keyboard in the quickest way possible.

Although they recommend it, you don't have to set BOTH convenience keys to invoke ShortcutMe (I don't). MultiClick still works for all 3 keys(2 conv, enter) after it's open. You can keep one conv key set for the app to which you need one-click access.

n0m0n

As I said earlier I would prefer to choose what application is called up first second and so on.
The fact that the app (ShortcutMe) is locked in the first click is a negative for me.
My opinion

lalawrie

and I would LOVE to win it!

Guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, I have this problem." The doc says, "what's your problem?"

The guy says, "I've been real conflicted lately. Sometimes I think I am a wigwam. Some times I think I am a Tee Pee. Any idea what my problem is?"

To this the doctor replies, "I know what your problem is....you're too tense."

:)

woot.

Celtics8

thomasnash1027

I was just arguing with a fanboy over the greatness that is our convenience keys. In true iPhone fanboy form, he argued that there's nothing convenient about convenience keys. I argued that he wouldn't know and that I wish I had 4 or 5 of them. This would be an amazing tool to add to my already amazing Storm 2.

GJW

This sounds like a very clever yet simple app that would be really really useful!

I'd love to have a copy of it!
