    Reminds me of Zaventh’s (Steelthorn) IntelliLaunch App.

    Christopher let me know that he released KBLauncher which lets you quickly fire up applications. You just start typing the name of the app and it will start narrowing down the selection. He calls it a command line for your BlackBerry. Personally I think it reminds me of the OSX Spotlight search which I use all the time to find apps. The cool part is that the app remembers apps that you use frequently and brings them to the top of the list. The app is pretty cheap at $3.99 and has a 3 day free trial at this link.

    KBLauncherScreen-04Features include:

    • Fast command access.
    • No setup. KBLauncher automatically your apps. apps.
    • KBLauncher learns from your usage by prioritizing your recently used commands.
    • Works on SureType keyboard layouts (Pearl, Pearl Flip, Storm).
    • Cool transparent window effects.
    • Run commands not normally available on your Home screen: WiFi toggle, memory cleaner.
    • Low memory requirements: tiny install footprint!

    It’s a great app. I still most often default to just searching because I’m not remembering it’s installed, but when I’m in a time crunch and I do remember, I just hit my convenience key and boom.

    I prefer QuickLaunch, a complete app for this task. And bring more features (ScreenShot, Reset Device, Launch SMS, Call, etc)

    Tried it and was going to buy it but then realized it’s not a resident app you can call from anywhere. 80% of its use was gone by not providing that.

    Not sure I understand the problem, DonGato. The idea is that you would have a convenience key set to KBLauncher so you can start it from anywhere. I would not want to keep an app resident, eating up memory without doing anything.

    That makes sense but it wasn’t explained here (the article) and it didn’t get my attention either at the store page description. Immediately bought it when I realized the convenience key usage (by going to your site and reading a while). Many thanks!

    It was funny that I got some nice extra information from your site about your experience with the platform and app world. Keep the good work!

    A shame I can’t run Google Talk IM app with it. Damn RIM! <img src="smileys/tongue.gif" width="" height="" alt=":P" title=":P" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>

    DonGato, I have a new Blackberry 8900 and run Google Talk IM on it just fine! Have had no problems at all with it, very functional and much better than BB Messenger. I also have Yahoo IM and Live Messenger installed, both of which perform very well.

    I was talking about launching some applications from KBLauncher. That’s a known API limitation.
