Tips: How BlackBerry shortcuts works

Category: Original, Skill, blackberry, Author: owen wong, Popularity: 1% [?]

Last year, we told you the shortcuts on BlackBerry phones. But how them work if some applications use the same shortcut? A lot of users have asked us why Super QWERTY doesn't launch by shortcut 'q' and ICQ launches and sometimes ICQ cannot launch but Super QWERTY launches. Well, today we will tell you how this works.

Usually, you can find a underline under the application name which can launch from a shortcut like the above pic. This is set in the application and you cannot change it. Some themes also contains shortcuts which could launch various applications in homescreen. This is set in the theme builder. We will not talk about it in this article. Now here's the question, I have both ICQ and Super QWERTY installed on my BlackBerry, which will launch when I click 'q'?

This is related with your theme to some extent. You can move the cursor to the target application and click BB key. Choose Move to Folder.

And you will see the folder order. The application in the top holders will launches first. For example, in the below image, if you move Super QWERTY to Applications folder and ICQ to Instant Messaging folder, then Super QWERTY will launch when you click 'q'. If you move move Super QWERTY to Setup folder and ICQ to Applications folder, ICQ will launches. Different themes have different folder orders. So that's why sometimes Super QWERTY launches and sometimes ICQ launches.

What will happen if the applications are under the same folder? The answer is the application rearward will launch first.

Here's our today's tip. Thanks for reading! :)
