Default App shortcuts

Please Login to Remove!

I know that third party apps can create their own shortcut keys (many weather apps use 'W')...

Is anyone aware of an app that will allow custom keyboard/app shortcuts?

Here's the list of default shortcuts from RIM, at least as they apply to my 9700:

A - Address Book
B - Browser
C - Contacts (another pointer to the Address Book)
D - Memopad
E - (nothing)
F - (nothing - USED to be Profiles)
G - (nothing)
H - (nothing)
I - (nothing)
J - (nothing)
K - (nothing)
L - Calendar
M - Messages
N - BlackBerry Manager
O - Options
P - (nothing) (3rd party app BBNotepad claims this one)
Q - (nothing) (3rd party app Qsms claims this one)
R - (nothing)
S - Search
T - Tasks
U - Calculator
V - Saved Messages
W - WAP Browser (3rd party weather apps claim this one)
X - (nothing)
Y - (nothing)
Z - (nothing)

I think QuickLaunch will do that but I haven't bothered to buy it.

PocketDay allows custom key mappings for some things, but I've not used that. Also y is the shortcut key for PocketDay.
