KBLauncher On Sale Through Friday - 50 Copies to Give Away

By Adam Zeis on 14 Jan 2010 10:54 pm EST

A few months back we checked out KBLauncher, an app that allows you to launch items on your device by "command line". You just start typing the name of an application on your device, and KBLauncher shows a list of items for you to choose from. You can quickly launch almost any application on your device, and no setup is required. The app will learn your usage and prioritize apps, has a low footprint and configurable fonts and colors. The new "power search" allows you to type the letters of multiple words as well, ie. to get "BlackBerry App World" just type BAW. KBLauncher is on sale in the CrackBerry App Store through Friday for $2.99.

Contest: We have 50 copies of KBLauncher to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

KBLauncher On Sale Through Friday - 50 Copies to Give Away



This looks like a useful little application. I have lots of apps installed and it is a nightmare trying to remember where I put them. This would make finding and loading apps easier. I'd love to give it a try!

Let me see:

Quicklaunch: Convenience key --> menu --> scroll --> click.

KBLauncher: Open program --> start typing --> list --> scroll --> click.

Sorry, sounds like Quicklaunch is the winner by a long shot, but I'll at least try KBlauncher if I win it.

Oh how I'd love a copy of this app. Seems not many folks in the UK get the chance of one of these! Please may I have a copy? Thanks.

I was very curious about this app when I first heard about it but have yet to try it out! Maybe I'll win this contest and be able to have the opportunity ;)

WOW! What a great way to launch any of your apps simply by typing the first letters or so! It seems much easier than having to go to the menu screen!

I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS APP! I have a Blackberry Bold 9700 and I love it but I've been needing an app like this for a long time !!!

This is a great idea for an app! Well done! I could definitely use this as I have many apps installed an sometimes it can be difficult to find the one I want. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

Anything to make life easier and easier. This would be great for people that have dl'd a bunch of apps and don't want to take the time to look for them....like me! Hope I win!

I used to have an app just like this on my Palm Treo and it was great; a real time-saver. I'm looking forward to using KBLauncher and hoping it will be at least as good; saving me countless button presses!

This would be awesome on my 9700!!! there is nothing better then to just start typing what you want (like contacts)... this sounds AMAZING!!!!

it doesn't sound like it will replace QuickLaunch with the ability to shortcut SMS to an individual, memory cleaner, etc.

would love to have this app cause i think it would make my tour more functional when i need an app instead of opening up a bunch of folders to find what i'm looking for

any better than QuickLaunch ? Never mind, don't have either, would love to get a copy

Thanks CB Team....

I like this App, reminds me of the Palm Pre that allows you to search by what you type in. Awesome job getting this on a BB!! Would love to try this out!
