Just earlier this week, Ronen introduced to us this unique application called MyOwnHotKeys, which is essentially an application to help create shortcuts for your device. Unlike other applications, the new MyOwnHotKeys application allows you also change the default hotkeys on your BlackBerry to whatever you want and also set shortcuts for multiple presses on the keyboard. The team over at Foneware has kindly sponsored us 15 copies of this application for a giveaway.
With the ability to create shortcuts from multiple presses on the keyboard, this would mean that you can override the default keyboard shortcuts set on your BlackBerry and also setup multiple keypress actions. For example, you can set one click on the M key to open up messages, double click to open Memopad, and triple click to open Maps, and even quadruple click to open up Google Maps. This application would hence, give you up to over 100 fully customizable hotkeys all directly accessible from BlackBerry Home Screen.
Also, these hotkeys can also launch your macro shortcuts in the ShortcutMe application.
However, they also did notice that whilst it overrides most of the default hotkeys on the device, some versions of BlackBerry OS, however, does not allow 5 out of 26 hotkeys to be configured by this or any other applications. But, the good news is, for those hotkeys that can’t be modified, you can still use double, triple and quadruple click hotkeys by simply clicking another key on the BlackBerry as your first click.
This application an absolute must for anyone who uses Application Shortcuts and is available for BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5.0 or higher, costing just $2.99. Get the application from:
