BlackBerry Tip: Set QuickLaunch to a convenience key

Comments

Being a long time BlackBerry user I have come to know the operating system pretty well but I only began to wonder just how powerful these devices were once I purchased my BOLD 9000. Starting today, I’ll publish a column that will cover topics ranging from simple key board shortcuts to completely customizing your BlackBerry.

A good place to start when looking to master your device is to harness the power of your convenience keys. By default these two keys are usually set to run the camera and voice dialing programs but a much more useful approach is to set a convenience key to QuickLaunch (QL). When QL is assigned to a convenience key, it allows for quick and easy access to just about every app and file on your BlackBerry including 3rd party software.

Simplify your BlackBerry experience with custom keys

So if you’ve been looking for an application that will simplify your Blackberry experience, look no further. QuickLaunch by NikkiSoft allows you to launch applications, websites and compose messages along with other things from as little as 2 clicks. Configuring QuickLaunch is a breeze and is an application that every Blackberry owner shouldn’t go without. QuickLaunch supports 83XX, 8900, 9000 and 95XX devices with 4.5 OS or above.

Install was fast and simple and configuring was a fast and straight forward process. After installing I setup my left convenience key (through the Blackberry Screen/Keyboard options) to launch the app and when pressed it brought up the sidebar which defaults to the right side of the screen (but can be changed to the left). The QL Settings menu is simple and only has four configurable items; menu locations, font size, right-side convenience key action and left side convenience key. (The convenience keys will have priority over other mapped applications while the QuickLaunch menu is opened.) QuickLaunch allows you to set the convenience keys (left, right or both) to close QuickLaunch if an app is not launched using the application.
