If you have known me for more than 10 minutes or followed my articles for very long you probably know that I am a huge fan of QuickLaunch, in fact its really the only BlackBerry Application that I just can’t seem to live without.  I admit I made it several weeks with my BlackBerry Torch 9800 without QuickLaunch and I guess its not as crucial as it is to me on the other devices, but this is partially due to RIM’s crack smoking decision to get rid of my beloved left convenience key.  I use my BlackBerry camera a lot so it is a major compromise to give up the single convenience key to QuickLaunch but my compromise was simply to add the camera to my list within QuickLaunch.  So as a long time QuickLaunch for BlackBerry user I still think it’s probably the

Get QuickLaunch BlackBerry Application in the BlackBerry Sites Store for $4.99

Store Description:

QuickLaunch is a must have application for every BlackBerry owner. With an interface that is seamlessly integrated with the look of the BlackBerry OS, QuickLaunch will create shortcuts to most any application on your device with ease and style. In addition the added functions included with QuickLaunch will enable you to delete several other apps on your device saving memory making QuickLaunch the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of your Blackberry.

QuickLaunch allows you to setup shortcuts to various functions such as Websites, Email, SMS and PIN addresses, Phone numbers, 3rd Party Apps, Videos, Images, Audio files, Device Info, Bluetooth Configuration, Camera, Video Camera, Delete your Call Logs, Manage Connections, Device Reset, Google and Wikipedia Search and other functions such as Blackberry Options, Calculator, Calendar, Event Log, Tasks, WiFi On/Off Toggle (Bold and Curve Versions) and more! Configure a convenience key to activate QuickLaunch and when pushed a menu will popup showing a scrollable list of your configured actions. The menu can be set to appear on the Right or Left side and can be shown on virtually any screen so you can perform any action without backing up and navigating through your homescreen and folders saving you time. Quick easy access to what you want to do wherever you are!

*** See the NEW DEMO VIDEO ABOVE! ***

QuickLaunch does not run in the background taking up resources. QuickLaunch runs only when it’s opened allowing you to choose your previously configured shortcut, function or 3rd Party Application. Make your selection by highlighting the menu item you want and your off! QuickLaunch then exits until you run it again.
