Default [UPDATED Feb 8!] MarkyBerry Utilities - Free Software By Mark Rejhon

Please Login to Remove!

MarkyBerryUtils

Free software recently written by me, for my own use and inspired by BlackBerryForums users. Enjoy!

Important note: To enable hotkeys, turn off "Dial From Home Screen" setting in Phone->Options. (You can press the phone hotkey before dialing, anyway). Hotkeys do not work on 71XX series, so you have to manually launch via icon. However, hotkeys works from PocketDay as an assigned key if you need hotkeys on the 71XX series.



MarkyBerryUtils Wireless Download:

Download Quick Note Via BlackBerry:
www.marky.com/files/bb/QuickNote.jad

PURPOSE: One hotkey access ("Q" key) to immediately jotting down notes that is automatically copied to the clipboard. Requires BlackBerryOS 3.6 or later. Configurable font sizes and optional clipboard display on startup. Written completely from scratch.

Download Quick Compose Via BlackBerry:
www.marky.com/files/bb/QuickCompose.jad
PURPOSE: One hotkey access ("C" key) to immediately composing a blank new email message. Requires BlackBerryOS 4.1 or later. This readds the missing Compose icon from earlier BlackBerryOS software, while using the new convenient New Email interface of OS 4.1. Thanks to Ramble at SRA for the first version of the code.

Thanks for the utilities.

Is there a way to utilize BBSpell or BBCorrector within the QuickNotes?

Many thanks to RIM for finally sending me the code signing key that I needed before I could release QuickCompose. They are very tiny programs, less than 10 kilobytes each and about a couple dozen lines of code apiece. The source code to MarkyBerryUtils is in the Development Forum area, for those interested.

Default Mark what does your Quick compose do

that the SRA version did not.

Also what do you think of my Call from Calendar idea. I just posted that again in the small apps thread?

For some reason I cant get the Q key to work or the Phone to stop dialing even that Dial from Home screen is turned off. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Also, can you assign shortcuts to apps from the home screen?

My version works properly with Alt+Esc multitasking (Although Ramble's version just got fixed, so there is no difference). The other thing is that my version has an icon. Future versions of my software will probably allow configuring between the OS 4.0 Compose method and OS 4.1 Compose method. Also, the API's do not exist for Call From Calendar, although you can embed a clickable phone number into a calendar entry (much like email addresses and web addresses automatically become clickable after you type them). The next best thing: A program that simply created a calendar entry containing a clickable phone number, selected from the addressbook, would be more complicated and would probably be PocketDay's domain -- and I wouldn't have a personal use for the feature (so I would have to sell the software rather than post it for free). It took me less than 1 hour to make Quick Note, so it is something worth providing to the public for free.

Tap the key quick, not hold the key down (holding key down automatically does a Speed Dial). Plus, if you are using the Cingular theme, switch to the Applications folder or switch to a different theme. Once the Quick Compose icon is visible, you should be able to tap the "C" key.

The clipboard is built into the OS. It's where the "Copy and Paste" text is stored. (Aren't you familiar with how to copy and paste text between BlackBerry applications?) Just select "Paste" in any other editable text area in any BlackBerry app. For example, selecting "Paste" in the menu while writing email, will paste the contents of what you typed in Quick Notes.

The Q key is for Quick Note.
The C key is for Quick Compose.

MrKyoo - Try setting "allow checking any text" within bbspell - this will probably allow you to spell check in Mark's new apps. I'll check it out myself soon.

One user reported QuickCompose sometimes freezes (rare problem, it seems) - that has now been fixed. (Version 1.02). A bugfix I made to Ramble's version had some unintended side effects, but 1.02 fixes all known bugs now. Just download again, either OTA or Desktop.
