    love the ease of getting around app to app, not having to go back back back to home screen to get what I want.

    Do you have to reset the convenience clicks when upgrading to new version?

    Weather addition is fantastic
    What do you mean with "reset the convenience clicks"?

    Tried the weather shortcut found it cause I knew you added the feature
    maybe you should just put the shortcut in the app and let people edit it.

    Tried my city the example in help for perameters made sense once I saw the yahoo weather page
    added my city and it worked great then I tried to add a second city and got errors from yahoo for my original city and the one I added (page1,page2) tried
    mycity[;newcity]
    mycity [;newcity]
    mycity[newcity]
    and didnt work
    changed it back to just mycity and worked perfectly
    Did I do something wrong I was trying to follow example

    The type in help is pretty small had to get magnifying glass

    [] are a sign for optional variables. They ([]) should not be in the paramter field:
    Example 1: mycity
    Example 2: mycity;newCity
    Example 3: mycity;newCity;newCity2
    Example 4: mycity;newCity;newCity2;newCity3

    ShortcutMe 3.2.2.0 is now on the OTA link

    Changes comparing to 3.2.1.2:

    - Shows the weather condition image for the selected cities.

    - Shows temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius (Weather_C, Weather_F)
    Those who already have shortcuts for Weather need to change the AppName to one of these new AppNames.

    - Some minor improvement in the way weather data is fetched from the web (if the radio coverage is not good, he phone does not hang waiting to talk to server).

    - Screenshot images are now saved with data/time stamp in their name.
    Name format: ScreenShot_MMM_DD__HH_MM_SS.jpg

    - Some internal parameters for Media_Picture, Media_Vidoes, Media_VoiceNotes are changes.

    All works well for me
    Having the F & C option is a good add
    Adding the visual picture is great idea
    Is it possible to wrap text
    when I open the weather page I get WEATHER FOR .......
    Ive noticed this in some of the menu options also

    One other thing I noticed
    If you open an app use it then close out the app it closes shortcutme also
    and I have to reopen it to go to another shortcut?
    Having shortcut me open in place of the app switcher would be a nice touch also
    App is still fast also

    Good to know that new changes are good.

    "Weather for" is the text directly from the yahoo page. I am a little bit afraid to mess around with it as the wrapping might cause problems in future if Yahoo decides to change the format.

    A shortcut application should exit as soon as it launches your shortcut.

    ShortcutMe, most of the time, does the same thing, unless when your launched app/task is part of the ShortcutMe iself. In those cases ShortcutMe exits when you are done with that app/task.
    Really don't want to keep shortcutme in the background when it is not necessary.

    have tried all the shortcut types I can on bis
    and wap page shortcut isnt working
    used your example wap.crackberry.com

    did a search with phone browser set at blackberry
    and found the crackberry page with the wap address
    and it opened fine in the browser checked the address and it was http://wap.crackberry.com

    used the web page shortcut to m.crackberry.com and that works fine
    also a web page shortcut to wap address works

    Good to know that it works.

    Now you can for example double click the conv key to go to crackberry site and it will be a good replacement for the Crackberry Launcher.

    How can I get Vlingo to work if Shortcutme has control of both side buttons? A workaround is mentioned here but not how it was done.

    Excuse me - I have a simple question:

    If I use ShortcutMe for my Strom and I assign both convenience keys (side keys) to it - how is it possible to launch the virtual keyboard ?

    In my opinion the virtual keyboard is a good choice for the convenience key.

    Thanks in advance

    ShortcutMe doesn't require you to assign both conv keys to it. However, if you do decide to assign both conv keys to it, you can set it's multi click feature to assign 3 apps to each conv key (in addition to ShortcutMe itself).

    Do you use conv keys to launch virtual keyboard?
    Yes I do at the moment - but I like to assign both conv keys to Shortcutme.
    ... but for the multi click I don't find a possibility to lunch the virtual Keyboard.

    ShortcutMe 3.10.2.4 is now released for Bold 97xx, Tour 96xx, Bold 90xx, Javelin 89xx, 88xx, Gemeni 85xx and Curve 83xx

    3.10.2.4 will soon be released for all other models ( Currently ShortcutMe 3.9.2.0 is available for those other models )

    About ShortcutMe:


    Price:
    -Free to upgrade for existing users.
    -4.99$ for new users.
    -Free trial available (if you want to try the latest version, download the trial version from mobihand or channels, then use the menu option "Update" to download this version over the air)

    Free trial, YouTube Clips, and Web Page links for ShortcutMe


    Update from ShortcutMe is still intact: Anyone, even App World customers can download the new version directly from ShortcutMe itself!


    (What-is-New is under the image below)




    New in 3.10.2.4:
    - Launch ShortcutMe with Space key
    If you are in the BlackBerry Home Screen and no other app is assigned to launch with Space key, ShortcutMe will launch by clicking the Space key

    - Multi-Space-Key Click feature
    From BlackBerry Home Screen just double, triple and quadruple Space key to launch your most used apps

    - Nicer look with loaded background image
    ShortcutMe loads background images, your own or the ones downloaded from ShortcutMe itself (Common Config page)

    - 'Download Optimized Background Images' button to download images directly from our web site

    - Background Image Rotation
    Instead of always having the same background image, you can choose to force ShortcutMe to load a new image every time it is launched.

    - Multi-Click Apps View
    New view for Multi-Click apps. This new view can be launched if you click any of the multi-click keys 5 times.

    - Test-Run button when you create/edit a shortcut.
    Test-Run allows you to test your shortcut as you create/edit it, instead of every time exit and test the shortcut.</li>

    - Display name will auto update when AppName is changed.

    - For Call, Msg_Email, Msg_PIN, Msg_SMS, select a contact from the Address Book, instead of copy and pasting it

    - Msg_Email can accept a group in the Address Book.
    Create a shortcut to send email to several people.


    - Now_Playing added to the supported app

    If a media file is played, you can bring it to forefront using ShortcutMe

    - Added Screenshot_PNG_SCM to the supported app
    Take a screenshot and save it as png file (Screenshot_SCM creates jpg file)

    - Added Device_Info and Wifi_On to the supported app

    - Calllog, Msg_Compose, Calendar_xxxx all now runs with Test-Run

    - Accepts background images smaller than the full size

    - Added Backlight_Brightness to the supported apps

    The backlight option is awesome.

    I need it sometimes after I exit a building. Now I can quickly adjust it if it isn't bright enough.

    Thanks a ton for adding that.

    When no parameter is set for brightness, a dialog box is shown allow you to manually change the brightness. Looking for a better way to let users know about the keys to change the brightness. I want the message to be very short so that the dialog box it self become smaller. Let me know if you have a solution for it.

    1 thing, is there anyway to make it the show normal background when selecting the brightness with no parameter set? If not, it's fine like it is.

    Is this a bug? -> If the scm brightness is set. Then in screen settings it still stays the same. If you set brightness to 95 in one shortcut, then the manual
    brightness shortcut can't get the brightness to 100 or 0.
