QuickText – Speed Dial For SMS

David just let me know about an application that he just released for BlackBerry called QuickText. It essentially adds a keyboard shortcut “Q” to open up a speed dial list for sending SMS messages. You hit “Q” and then the letter corresponding to the SMS recipient and your off to sending an SMS. I always wished that RIM would expand the native speed dial to allow speed emailing and SMSing. There is a 14 day free trial of QuickText after which it costs $7.50. I don’t really SMS often enough to make this worth $7.50 but it sure is a cool idea. Why can’t RIM let us create our own keyboard shortcuts…

Product description:

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.

  • Add John to your QuickText list, then simply press “Q” for QuickText and “J” for John. That’s it!
  • 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.
  • If you text people daily, then QuickText is a must! Try it for yourself and see!
  • Fully Operational 14 Day Trial Period

  1. there is a software called qsms that does that exact same thing for free on the blackberry forums. i have it; works pretty good.

  2. They’re not quite the same. QuickText is like speed dial for texting. It goes a step further than just letting you choose from your Address Book.

  3. its nice. if it was half the price.

  4. I never realized that it took so many key stokes (and scrolling) to text until i tried this version. It really makes it quite simple. With as much as I text, $7.50 is nothing! This is great!

  5. I agree with Morthboy. Qsms is free and it does basically the same thing. I am using it now.
