Default Is there a program to cycle through Keys?

Please Login to Remove!

Coming from a treo I am curious to know if there is a a "utility" program for bb that can cycle through the keyboard keys by holding down the key.

Example would be for letter "r" r>R>3 or for "j" j>J>;

*I know its 1/2 there by holding down the key you get to caps but looking to go a little further

or did I miss something in the shortcuts

press the key and move the trackball/trackwheel, you will cycle through lowercase, uppercase and other ascii and accented characters:

such as on the "t"
-t
-T

a the moment you can hold down say, the "d" key and you get lower "d" then if your still holding it down it go's to capital "D" right. With a program on a treo you go to lower 'd" then capital "D" then still holding it it goes to the Number "5" (all done in micro sec's of course)

You don't have to use the alt key at all

The problem I would have with it cycling to numbers is that I have passwords which use capital letters, so I blindly hold down the key long enough so I know it's switched to upper case.

Sjjones, I used a similar app with the Q (Qcaps) and found it very useful. I obviously am no where near the crack addict typing skill level (one can dream), so if you happen to stumble accross this application, this mere non crack speed typing mortal would be very interested.
