QuickLaunch updated to v3.8.2 - Now available for all BlackBerry 7 devices


The camera mute function doesnt work since OS6 was released due to some API's missing or something.

Btw, is this update only for OS7 devices? i havent got the update alert yet, neither on my CB Store acc or inside the app

I was waiting to hear this - I haven't gotten my 9850 yet; but I wasn't sure how I'd use it without this app!

So it looks like OS 6 and below are no longer supported :-(

eDIT: Crackberry store still says its supported. Hmm

I just replaced Jared Company's "One Touch Launcher" with this app, and Quick Launch is AMAZINGLY better - integrates nicely, and I can edit how apps appear in the list, changing both their name & order of appearance. Plus I was able to delete a bunch of other, single-purpose apps like quick pull. SUPER deal all around. Cannot wait to install it on my 9850 (assuming VZW ever releases it...)

Oh god, I hope not.. I have a lot of respect for NikkiSoft. They've never gone all "BeBuzz major upgrade" on us.

Ql is the best app I have. Knowing that it is there for OS7, makes upgrading to a new BB an easier choice.

Go to options > device > about device versions: and it will say (versionX.X.X.XXX, Platform X.X.X.XXX). The v is your OS.

If you have QuickLaunch installed it's as easy as pressing your convenience key and clicking "Device Info" ;) (If you added that entry)

If the upgrade costs $, that wouldn't make sense since there is no major change log...

EDIT: If you meant version of QuickLaunch, go to application management.

My 9900 is OS 7 and I don't see an upgrade on my crackberry app store. Why is that? I still have 3.7.x

App World still shows 3.0; no updates for App World?? How will I get this version on my 9930 then???

Yup ditto for me, App World still has no updates for me. I am wondering if QuickLaunch or QuickWeather are the cause for my twice a day battery charging. They are too sweet in use for me to discard, but it will be great to get a BB 7 optimized version soon.

those apps don't drain your battery. definitely not.
if you have an os 7 device and it doesnt show up in your mobihand/cb account then that means you have the wrong device/os selected in you account

I am unable to see any version above 3.7.3 on my CB account, even though I have upgraded to a 9850 device. Anybody know when this will be fixed?
