I first looked at this app back in June. Back then it was known as Web Shortcut Creator. It allowed you to create icons to use for any websites your save to your BlackBerry homescreen. It was certainly very useful as not every website has a nice little icon to go with your saved shortcut. So, these saved websites wouldn't blend in nicely with other app icons on your homescreen. With this app you could create a nice little icon to go with the web shortcut.
Since then the app has come a long way. It has now become Shortcut Creator as it doesn't just cater to web shortcuts anymore. You can now create a shortcut for a whole number of things. Like Contacts, BBM Contacts, files, folders, music playlists and albums. Even shortcuts to settings. And if you wanted to, you can create a shortcut to an account in the Hub so you can jump straight to it.
It's clear the developer has been working hard to make this stand out from other apps with similar features.
