Way back in August of last year, I had a look at an application called QuickBubble. The application focused on features we would typically see in two more popular types of apps – a message popup notification system (email and SMS) and a provider of shortcuts to more frequently used commands (create a new contact, calendar appointment, memo entry or email). The developers were extremely quick to respond to any concerns I had while reviewing QuickBubble. I haven’t heard from them since then and was worried that their bubble had burst. The application had some potential, though I was already impressed with what it had.

A day or so ago, an email from HandRapid popped up on my BlackBerry. They have been hard at work tweaking QuickBubble and have released version
