    Quicklaunch like blackberry storm???

    Is there an app something like the Quicklaunch for storm, single file add a shortcut for direct dial,text,app etc, that is one of the best apps I had on the storm really miss it!

    Anyone feel the same??

    I do know the Droid has several options, but I think the storm Quicklaunch did it better.

    Never used a storm but if I understand what you're looking for it sounds like you could be just as easily satisfied with creating a folder (on your home screen) and putting all the shortcuts you want inside that folder. You can do direct dial, text, apps, whatever.

    Or maybe I don't understand what this app really did for you.

    Never used Quicklaunch and I don't miss the Storm. Either one of them.

    There's always going to be some give and take and I think you can easily duplicate the quicklaunch by creating folders on your home screen.

    Do you miss waiting 5 minutes to connect to the internet?

    Or don't even make a folder, just put one of your homescreens to be all speed dials, quick navigations, etc. That's what I did.

    I was thinking the same. But I'm fine with homescreens and folders. I guess we felt we had to put that camera button to use!

    Yes I have the he folders on the home screen, I just like the format of the quicklaunch storm app better, checked the marketplace and maybe thought i missed it or it would have a diffrent name.
    QuickLaunch - Launch Apps, Web, Mail, SMS, Calls, Tilt Lock, Screenshot, Flashlight, Reboot n more! - Personal Productivity BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store
    Check it out this or something close would be awesome.

    When I create a shortcut on my home screen and select direct dial and then chhose a favorite contact that has a picture associated with it, I get a shortcut with the picture and a small letter in the upper right of the picture. The letter has nothing to do with the contact or the picture. Anybody else have this problem.

    I'm guessing the letter is M, W, or H, right? That's mobile, work, and home. So you have the name and the designation of what kind of phone you're calling.

    The letter is the upper left not right, sorry. What was said as to the letter designation sounds right. I have never seen any info as that happening when you create the shortcut. Thanks for the quick answer. You guys rock.
