ShortCutMe for 9810
Have any 9810 user bought the new SCM that was released this week? I have being debating wether to buy it our not. With the OS7 full tough screen is it really worth it? I feel as though the way the UI is laid out it is very easy to navigate from screen to screen and to change the profile and WiFi etc. I just wanted to know what other 9810 user thought of this app and do they really use it.

For simple tasks like turning on/off wifi, you might not need any app. The BB OS 6 and 7 are nicely designed so that you have those functions available most of the time.
But for complex and/or multiple settings involving digging into BB menus, ShortcutMe allows you to run them with click of a button.
See for example the plugin functions here:
or macros written here:

I have been a ShortcutMe customer for a while. If you are into macros/automation/customization of your BB, then ShortcutMe is a must-have app. I consider it a very flexible and powerful scripting language. If you aren't a programmer yourself, then it might not be a great app for you, as you might find the learning curve a bit steep. I'm just hoping BB10 will allow Fonware or other developers to do the same thing on the next generation of devices.
BTW, I am not associated with Fonware in any way, although I am an app

I transitioned from an old curve to a 9810 a couple of weeks ago. While I don't use ShortcutMe's 'app launcher only' functions as much, I would be a lot less productive (and happy) without the ability to automate repetitive tasks and/or group multiple tasks together in one macro. ShortcutMe allows you to customize your BlackBerry to suit your needs and preferences, and it is well worth the investment, even on a new touchscreen device.
