Arrow BBSmart Shortcuts v1.4.1 Released!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

Just wanted to let you know that we have now released v1.4.1 of BBSmart Shortcuts!

For the uninitiated
Using BBSmart Shortcuts you can create shortcuts to native apps, third-party apps, websites, and common tasks like emailing, calling, and SMS'ing contacts. It's got a cool facebook-like interface and is really easy to use. When set to run from a convenience key press BBSmart Shortcuts is a pretty nifty way to get around and be more productive on your BlackBerry.




What's new? (since v1.3)
- A lot more native and third-party applications available for selection for the toolbar
- Now able to paste URLs when creating web shortcuts
- Better support for large address books
- Escape will now dismiss the auto-complete drop-down

How to upgrade/install
If you currently have BBSmart Shortcuts installed just select "About" from the menu and then "Check for Updates". On the download site that comes up make sure the version listed is 1.4.1. If it isn't, you may need to select "Refresh" from the menu to clear out your browser cache. You can simply install over the top of v1.3 and all your setting/shortcuts will be preserved.

If you don't have BBSmart Shortcuts installed, just head over to our website and you can check out the free trial or buy it.


Thanks very much for all your support and we're looking forward to hearing all your feedback! I'll be around on the forums to answer any questions you may have, otherwise please feel free to email our support team: [email address]

Cheers,
Neil.

Nice job. I've been waiting for something like this. Any chance of making the shortcut Icons a little bigger? Optional sizes would be even nicer.

eZainny,

Thank you for this update. Now it is usable for me since I can load a number of 4.5 BB apps.

Rockin N Rollin with 1.4.1!

Hi akosnitzky,

That functionality is not in there right now, but will be in (along with some more new functionality) with v1.5. We're hoping to be able to start beta testing of v1.5 towards the middle to end of next week.

Cheers,
Neil.

Thank you.

For some like me, the e-mail is the benefit. The web and phone already have short cuts. There is another product that puts the short cuts in the e-mail menu which will go unnamed here. Maybe this is something you can consider in future updates as well.

1.4 is a nice version nonetheless.

Hello eZainny,

Do you think you could add the "media" application as a selection for the toolbar? Also, just wondering if you will be working on the sorting / moving of sections and entries within each section? Excellent application.

Thanks,

Tony

Hi Tony,

We're going to try and do both for v1.5. Moving is a definite. The "Media" application is a little bit tricky (due to limitations with the BlackBerry OS & APIs), so I can't guarantee this one, but we'll do some investigation to let you know if it is/isn't possible.

Cheers,
Neil.

I just installed the new version -- definitely an improvement from the first one. This is a very handy app. The only thing I might suggest is making the highlight on the toolbar with more contrast for my older eyes.

Hey there! I like this app. Would you be able to bake in the ability to have larger font capability both within the shortcut menu AND within each shortcut? (messaging/email/etc).

thanks

Neil,

Just downloaded the trial. A couple of questions/comments:

- Do contacts need to have an email address in order to be selected as Phone Shortcuts? A couple of mine would not be found.

- Could you make it so that the toolbar at the top keeps wrapping around so that you can scroll in only one direction to find an item?

- Can you show the icons for the currently selected theme on the toolbar instead of the stock icons?

- Can I change the order of the items in the toolbar?

Select the icon to be moved. Enter space, move the icon with the trackwheel, and select space or enter to complete the move.

Default Toolbar shortcuts disappear after reboot?

Hey all... is anyone else having an issue in which the toolbar shortcuts disappear after a device reboot?

I'm running the newest version.

Is it possible that you have installed the BeejiveIM (formerly JiveTalk) beta, and that JiveTalk was already in your BBSmart Shortcuts toolbar? I had this same thing happen after I installed the beta -- in this case, if you re-create the toolbar shortcuts, and you should be good to go (at least until the next BeejiveIM beta -- I had it happen with both 1.0.6 and 1.0.7). I have a feeling that it has to do with the name change of the application. I reported the issue to the developer last week.
