Near the end of May, we had a look at one of the shortcut applications available for the BlackBerry smartphone - ShortcutMe. Amongst its many features, the application allows you to add multiple shortcuts to one or both of your convenience keys. You can find ShortcutMe at the CrackBerry App Store. Sam from Fonware Ltd let me know that they've added a slew of requested features in recent updates. Here is a sample of the additions now available since our initial review:

  • Create shortcut to toggle Bluetooth
  • Airplane toggle mode: double click the convenience key to toggle all radios before boarding and after leaving the plane
  • Create shortcut to GPS Configuration page which makes it easier to toggle GPS and conserve battery life
  • New transparent, easy to use interface
  • Take screenshot images
  • View 5 day weather forecast for up to 4 cities
  • Create shortcuts to Media Explorer
  • Support for launching BlackBerry Wallet

We have 50 free copies of ShortcutMe to give away; all you have to do is leave a comment on this post for a chance to win. Contest entry ends Sunday at Midnight PST.

Contest: ShortcutMe Gets an Update - 50 Free Copies!




HA! I'm the 75th comment. I think. Or something like that.

Anyhow, I'd like a copy of this. Please and thank you.

It's been raining ALL DAY where I live and work was a complete drag so nothing better than a nice freebie and a good one in that to cheer me up after the day i've had!!!


I absolutely love reading all the blogs. As someone who works for a wireless carrier, I can download apps and try them out and suggest them to customers. This site and the blogs make my life so much easier.

I above everyone else could use this software!!!

It looks like a super tool for use by a very busy person....ME.

Thanks ahead of time ......My Curve 8330 also thanks you.

I've heard of this app before but never paid that much attention to it. Sounds like it might be a winner.

I have so many programs on my BB, this would be SOOOO helpful! Come on, you know you want me to have this app!

Sorry for the double post, accideantally double clicked POST

I like to win things, Thanks crackberry for doing so many contest.... is this a better program than quicklaunch?

This software looks great! It looks like it is simple to understand and use, and a small learning curve is nothing to dismiss lightly! I also like the makes it easier to separate each category. I've got bad eyesight and the colors are a definite asset! Whoever developed this software was thinking on his/her toes! Thank you for the chance to win ShortcutMe.

New here, new to Blackberrys, could use a shortcut to toggling Bluetooth - its a pain to have to re-connect all the time! Looking forward to learning lots about my Blackberry!

I have been playing with the demo of this and I love it. I'll hold out to see if I am a lucky winner before shelling out some cash now ;)

sounds like a good app. i use a lot of the default shortcuts but there isnt a way to program shortcuts for 3rd party apps.

Sweet application! I was thinking this week about how I wish I could assign shortcut keys to non BB apps (especially Facebook), and I had no idea this even existed. Thanks for the 411!
