at this price it can't be beat. one of if not the most useful apps for your BB. at 5 it's well worth it, at this price it's a steal !

WOOT! This app was finally on sale. I always wanted it, but I was too cheap to get it. Plus, the video really explains all the benefits it gives you. I can finally click one button to send an SMS to my girl friend. FINALLY! :)

What? did that video guy really say 'sims' rather than S-M-S when he was talking about the various menu functions....too funny.

I hope the moderators see this post -- When you click on the link to download (the one in the crackberry homepage) it brings you to purchase QuickLaunch - FOR TOUR.

I purchased the product using that link, and now I am not sure if the product will work on my storm (because it says "For Tour")

Like mentioned about this says for the Tour when you click to buy it. I want it but for my Bold. Are they they same?

Yeah - I bought the Tour Version, and I have a Storm :(

I contacted customer support, hopefully they can help

I have a bold and got a tour version. No, it doesn't work; and I'm trying to figure out what to do about it.

I thought the latest version of quick launch had a lot of bugs in it? If so, why promote the product on your front page? Shouldn't you wait until the product is fixed??

Downloaded the version for the Storm and Tour but get "activation invalid error" on both apps when trying to activate. Anybody else have this problem? Contacted Nikkisoft for help. Installs with no problems but cannot go further.

Tried to buy it this morning 7am PST showed 1/2 off but not in cart. WTF I tried now 6:30 pm PST now the deal is off! WTF.
It's still 8/3/09 here!

If you downloaded the tour version by Mistake (Like me)then just contact Crackberry support.

Go here www.CrackBerrySoftwareSupport.com

Fill out the form, and they will help you. I submitted a help request and they turned in around in only 2 hours and they resubmitted the purchase order for me and gave me the storm OTA link :)

Thanks Crackberry!

I originally had ShortcutMe, but switched to QL after trying it briefly. QuickLaunch is just so simple and streamlined, but is compatible with literally every function on your phone that you could think of. Additionally, the menu itself looks like a native BB function.

If you're completely happy with ShortcutMe, I see no reason to switch. But if you have any reservations at all with that app, I'd give QL a try. It's the best app out there for my Storm.

best app out there.. especially since it's on sale now, i'd advise you all to get it. I just love it!

ordered it , how long before you get an email with a download link? still waiting and I though it was instant?

I am another user that downloaded this for the tour, and I have a bold. I emailed nikkisoft directly, hopefully I get a fast response with the correct download link.

I went to purchase it. It hasn't even been online for 24 hours, and when I click on "purchase," the price is $4.99. It's still August 3 where I live.

I just bought this app like 5 days ago for full price. Not that it isnt worth 5 bucks, but you know in these tough times pennies saved adds up lol.

I saw quicklaunch and yeah $5 is abit pricey because I don't know if I will actually use it or find it useful at all. If you are ever thinking of getting it, now is the time to get it. At $5, its not too bad, but yeah, $2.50 is a steal.

D a m n you DoD!!!! If only I had waited for and unknown amount of time until maybe DoD had QL for half-off. LOL!! QL is worth the full price, but who can beat 50% off!

I bought and downloaded QL yesterday for my storm and it hates it. It wouldn't let me hide the keyboard it would not let me open the new bbm I kept getting erros of

Uncaught Exception Java Lang Null Pointer Exception.

I guess I need to go to the forum and see how to fix this or ask for a refund.

ive had a bb curver 8330 with sprint for abt 1 year now. im currently using a tour. ive alway heard about how good quicklaunch is. so last night i finally bought it and started using it. wow this is an amazing app. defiantely top 5 for me. runs just fine on new bb tour. highly recommend.

But, it doesn't seem like they're standing by it. I wrote crackberry about the shopping cart not reflecting the discount, and I received an e-mail back with a 20% software discount code and a 10% accessories discount code on future purchases. I guess that's not bad, and "nice of them." But I don't purchase much third-party stuff for my devices. This was the only software I was interested in buying.

What about it, Crackberry? You going to fix your shopping cart or something?

I know $2.50 isn't much, but things are really not good for me right now with $.

There are some serious bugs with this app. I have a tour and my buddy a 8350I and we both have the same issues, no sms contact adding and left and right conveniences keys don't work.

Deal didnt show up at home, work OR BB on Aug 3- only saw it on 8-4 after too late????
not a good deal.
