ShortcutMe is no stranger to the CrackBerry blogs. I had the opportunity to review the application over a year ago and I’ve continued to be impressed with each new version release. In a nut shell, ShortcutMe takes the idea of convenience keys to the extreme – allowing you to access multiple apps, browser bookmarks, reach out and call/email/SMS or Pin someone directly, and more.
ShortcutMe was the first app that introduced the multi-click feature, shortcuts with 3 key combinations, user input injection and cascaded shortcuts. Fonware didn’t want to stop there, oh no. Now, they also want ShortcutMe to be the first application to allow users to create their own macros, as well as let their macro shortcuts rock their BlackBerry the way they want it to. What this means is that you can now create a shortcut that will be able to launch an app, open the menu, select and open an item on the menu, enter a text and then push Enter key. This macro shortcut can be launched by hitting a key or multiple clicking Space or Convenience key and it can be added to a cascaded shortcut!
ShortcutMe has been updated to 5.0 and has brought along some much needed (and anticipated) features. The new version is OS 6 compatible for all BB devices (including the new 9780) and it has an improved upon 5 day weather forecast feature, that also shows wind speed, direction, humidity, etc. ShortcutMe is available from the CrackBerry App Store for $4.99 but is currently on sale today for 50% off.
