Default Open application by shortcut?

Please Login to Remove!

Standard applications like addressbook, notes or alarm could be opened by a shortcut - by the character which is underlined in the name.

An application like Mobipocket Reader comes without an underlined character.

How could it be opened by a shortcut, by a single character?

Thanks.

Perhaps so, what is the underlined character in the title? Have you attempted it?

I know some third-party applications (Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, others) do have a homescreen shortcut built in.

Not sure myself, but did you try to assign the app to a convenience key?

No character is underlined inside the title "Mobipocket Reader".

Sorry, I misread your first post. Then I guess not.

Please, what do you mean with "assign a convenience key to an app"?

I know, that it is possible to assign a key to an address. But to an app?

How do you do that?
