I received an email from David at Cannon Software letting me know that their popular QuickText application for the BlackBerry has been updated:
I just wanted to pass along that QuickText has been updated for the Storm. It's a free update for existing customers. They can just have QuickText check for updates (QuickText --> Menu --> About/Update --> Check for Updates) and it will update itself automatically. There's a fully functioning 14 day trial period for everyone else. Besides making text messaging much faster, this new version can also double as a speed dial list for placing calls... Simply select someone and press Send. This is especially useful for Storm users who are limited to only 9 speed-dial numbers and no labels to identify to whom they're assigned.
Not familiar with QuickText for BlackBerry smartphones? Here's the official verbage:
Tired of jumping through hoops just to send a quick SMS text message? Then QuickText is for you. It's like speed dial for text messaging. QuickText Features:
Add John to your QuickText list, then simply press "Q" for QuickText and "J" for John. That's it!
Storm users, just tap their name!
Access QuickText by pressing the Q key, a Convenience Key, or simply clicking the QuickText icon. (The Q key requires a full QWERTY keypad, and the "Dial From Home Screen" option set to "No".)
Assign a contact to any character on your keypad, including letters, numbers, or symbols.
Assign any contact from your Address Book with the press of a key.
Not on your QuickText list? Simply press the SPACE key to choose anyone from your Address Book, or ALT+SPACE to enter the number for a one-time use. (aka. Use Once)
Need to call instead of text? Just select them and press the Send key. Great for Storm users!
If you text people daily, then QuickText is a must! Try it for yourself and see!
