Default Is there a keyboard app like this out there?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a convert from a Treo and there was one app that I loved on that device. It was called keycaps. What it did was instead of holding down the shift or alt key you could configure your keyboard to do the following: Hit a letter twice and it is caps, hold the letter down acts as if you are holding down the alt key and typing the symbol.

Is there an app like this out there for Blackberry?

No, not that I am aware of. But some of this functions are already implemented directly in BB OS. To write caps, just press the letter down. Get a period by pressing the space key twice.
