ShortcutMe 4.0

Sam from Fonware let me know that the multitasking shortcut application, ShortcutMe 4.1, is now available for the BlackBerry Bold 9650 and Tour 9630. To recap, ShortcutMe nearly turns your entire BlackBerry into a giant convenience key. Picture having multiple applications at the ready, with only have to click your convenience keys or space key multiple times. For example; you can click once for browser access, twice to call your mom or thrice to clean your device memory. The application also contains built in screen capture, stock market and weather forecast access.

With over 150 customizable BlackBerry tasks and apps to play with, ShortcutMe is nothing short of fantastically handy. No more having to decide which two apps you want to assign to the left and right convenience keys. Composing messages, adding calendar entries or tasks have never been easier to initialize. In version 4.1, some of the new features include:

  • Added cascaded shortcuts to supported apps:

    Allows creating a shortcut to run several shortcuts one after each other. For example; create a 'Leaving Home' shortcut that turns off WiFi, turns on cellular radio, turns on Bluetooth and launches your favorite music, so that you can hear it in your cars handsfree. You can then create an 'Entering Office' shortcut and so on. (allows to make any combinations of users own shortcuts).

  • Allows creating a shortcut to toggle Mass Storage Mode
  • Allows creating a shortcut to ‘Receive_Using_BT’ feature on BlackBerry.
  • Allows adding symbols to shortcuts
  • When editing or creating shortcuts, 'Show Me Online Info Page' takes users to an online page, where they can read about the selected application.

Shortcuts are the best way to get the most out of your time, and your BlackBerry. You’ll find yourself more efficient than ever with an application like ShortcutMe on hand. You can pick up ShortcutMe for $4.99 from the CrackBerry App Store.

Very cool feature!
Now if you can make 'parameters' within each app allow for input key strokes....a single shortcut could do lots of incremental inputs.
Great app.

Symbols? That's awesome. I was wondering before if this feature would ever be available. Thanks a lot for adding that.

All of the new features in ShortcutMe 4.1 are unique. There are no other apps with the same capabilities.
Hope existing and new users enjoy using those new features.

Many have sent email asking if upgrading to the new version will cost them. The answer is NO. We have never asked our users to pay for upgrading to a new version.

Working on alpha testing ShortcutMe 4.2 (with additional features comparing to 4.1).
SCM 4.2 will be asked to be beta-tested by CB users (on CB forum) within a week and hopefully it will be released before end of the July.

96xx (Tour & Bold) owners will also be able to upgrade to 4.2 before end of the July.

ShortcutMe is clearly the most used (as well as one of the best) 3rd-party apps on my device. The new features that are added with each release continue to amaze me. Keep up the great work.
