    QuickLaunch 2.0 for the 88xx series is now available!

    After quite a delay QL 2.11 has finally been released. Faster, easier, more flexible, possessing more functionality than previous versions with an attractive, intuitive interface that doesn't require a manual to understand, QuickLaunch maintains it's must-have status.

    New Features in 2.0:

    . Backup / Restore to .txt file

    No more lost menu configurations when upgrading your OS. The Menu List, Options and Activation Code can now be stored in a .txt on your SDCard and easily and reliably restored. Use this function for backup as QuickLaunch no longer 'supports' backup / restore via Desktop Manager.

    . Built-in Screen Capture function
    QuickLaunch now includes it's own screen capture capability generating a high quality image. After the image is taken you have the option of immediately emailing it.

    . Integrated Google, Wikipedia and Dictionary.com search
    Performing these searches are now quicker using QuickLaunch.

    . Create Custom Submenus
    Now you can organize your list in categories. You can even have submenus within submenus. Submenus can be opened by clicking on them or highlighting them and using the the trackball right/left to open / back out of them.

    . More apps and functions to Add
    In addition to the greater number of applications now supported by QL 2.0 there are now more 'standard' QL functions that you can add including:
    New Appointment, Compose Email, Compose PIN, Compose SMS, New Contact,
    and New Task.

    . Display Current Temperature
    You can now display your local temperature (or just about any other city in the world) and Hi/Lo forecast information in the title bar.

    QuickLaunch does not run in the background and the weather information is retrieved only when you run QL.

    2.0 weather was tested in 4 European countries, 2 asian countries, Australia, South Africa and the U.S and worked with all networks tested. However it is possible that someone might have a network configuration that is not immediately supported. If this is the case, find your carrier's APN (Access Point Name) via google or directly from your carrier and enter that information in home, options, advanced, tcp/ip. That should take care of almost all networks in the world. If you can't display weather after that, send me an email and I will determine your settings and get you set up.

    . Yahoo Weather
    This item is in the Add Application section and when selected will display weather info obtained from yahoo weather in your browser according your location setting in QL Options.

    . Add Items Alphabetically
    Enable this option to add menu items in alphabetical order

    . Easier Setup with Installed Applications List
    To add an app no longer requires you to first have the app running. Just pick from the list

    . Volume Button Scrolling
    You can now set the volume buttons to enable item by item scrolling up/down or page up/down.

    . 3 Font sizes
    Small, medium and large

    . System Menu Integration
    This option will allow you to add QL to the BlackBerry system menu a la 'CaptureIt'. An added bonus of this feature is that now QL can be run on top of some apps that it previously wasn't able to in the past such as Opera Mini.

    Keyboard Shortcuts
    You can now configure shortcuts for menu items

    . Improved Performance
    Yes, it launches items noticeably faster than before.

    In addition to the above feature the following features are also included:
    Stay Lit - Keep your backlight on without timing out
    Radio On / Off - toggle your radios on or off.
