Cool! Been waiting for them to update!

stormsurvivor

QL obsoletes a dozen stand-alone apps. Having it on your BB improves an OS that needs some help.

JustBlaz3

Am I just retarded or is the camera mute function now gone ?

iSin

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

tyler_zyco

me neither on OS6.. That's what I assume is that its only for OS7 devices.

Flip4Bytes

I'm on OS7 and it still wont let me update yet :/

JunkieXP

It'll work on OS6! But that's only for one Shot ;). So it does not operate like it's supposed to ;).

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!

rafiks

Awesome ! Hope they fix these bug on my phone . Been missing ql menu on foursquare .

orangepit

Just got it.

App is great!! I don't know how I managed without it so far.

Camera mute worked fine on my os6 9700

pistolpetefan23

CrackBerry App Store on my device still shows as 3.7.3.

Sanch0

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

eDIT: Crackberry store still says its supported. Hmm

CheetahAce

os6 is supported. says so in this article too.

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...)

BGK

Maybe we will have to pay for this update ?

tyler_zyco

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

AFriske

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

mssca

How do I know which version of the OS I have right now? Also is this NOT a free upgrade?

tyler_zyco

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.

iBuilder

Still showing as 3.7.3 in MobiHand.

CheetahAce

It IS A FREE UPGRADE.
This release is for OS 7 devices only.

Other OS's have version 3.7.x of QuickLaunch

mssca

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

jiggaman2g

Same here, I guess we have to wait for them to update.

tryfe

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

nikonwhore

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.

CheetahAce

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

DarshOne

Upgraded to a 9930 and now my keycode won't work

jakarta

Still listed as version 3.0 on appworld (???) and 3.7.3 on CB, using Torch 9800 OS.6.X

Swamp55

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?
