The name Fonware is synonymous for shortcuts. It’s true! With well known applications such as; ShortcutMe, MediaKeyBooster and MyOwnIcons, practically anything you can push or press can potentially be a shortcut to an application, a contact or an URL. Shortcuts can only increase your performance and productivity if it can execute the command flawlessly. These apps do, and the newest addition, called MyOwnHotkeys is definitely no exception. Imagine setting up to 4 shortcuts for the each letter on your keyboard plus the space key. So, for example, you can press A once for Twitter for BlackBerry, twice for the Browser (in case you wanted to check out CrackBerry.com), three times for the music player and four for Foursquare.

Hey, how many convenience keys do you have on your BlackBerry smartphone? One… that’s too bad. I have four- that’s right; I’m using the Bold 9900 and I have four convenience keys. See, they’re all lined up on the right hand side. Okay, Okay, I know they’re media keys but, to me, they’re also convenience keys. This added functionality is brought to you by MediaKeyBooster, which lets you configure up to four apps, commands or shortcuts to each of your media keys. Volume up, volume down, even play/pause; they can all be made to do more than they were originally designed for. 

For things like opening the Calendar, Brickbreaker, or your Browser, I didn’t have to look at my screen anymore; I could just click a button a few times and away I go. Now is this really added convenience or do I now have to remember which app was on which button and how many clicks I need? Let’s take a look.
