    Hello all,

    I am curious how you all use the right convenience key. Apart from taking a picture, I don't use the key at all. Therefore, my two questions are the following:

    1) What function/app do you associate with the convenience key?
    2) Apart from taking picture, do you use it often?

    For my purposes, I assigned the calendar functionality to this key, but given that it a bit difficult to press or invoke, I prefer to use the touch screen to launch the calendar.

    Thanks for your input
    Dave

    Best solution is to get SixTools. Then you have 3 extra convenience keys besides the original one. Well worth it!!!

    I keep tapping the left side of my phone after coming from a 9700. I vote for 2 on all BB's.

    They went with 1 key because when the Torch dock is used, it is in Landscape modr and would block the convenience key on that side.

    Style also has 1 convenience key, but with QuickLaunch, that key opens QL, Camera, SprintNav, and Poynt.

    I'm actually using my Tour version of QL, but on the Style 9670. link shows 9800 as a supported device, though.

    NikkiSoft - makers of QuickLaunch BlackBerry Shortcuts and App Launcher

    You'll need to contact nikkisoft and have them send you a new link to download the Torch version so you get the correct software, though.

    Have you changed your device on your Mobihand account from 9700 to 9800?
    You can only do this from a PC.
    Afterwards if you go to the My Account pager, again must be from a PC, then you should have the option to swap versions to proper one for your device. This goes for all your apps.

    Actually, it is possible to update on-device from the Superstore App, or contact Support for the CrackBerry Store/Mobihand

    I assign my convenience key to Vlingo. But I also use ExtraKeys and assign the mute, volume up/down keys to other things like the camera.

    QuickLaunch is my convenience key choice. Makes life easier for me overall. I pick the particular apps I may wish to access and off we go.

    I have SixTools installed so this allows me to use the volume up & down as additional convenience keys.
    Volume Up - Camera
    Volume Down - Video Camera
    Standard Convenience Key - Quick Launch

    I use it for application switcher. That way I can switch apps quickly without having to hold down the BB key.

    I used to use it for Password Lock... now I've switched it to Vlingo. Two would be better... ****, even if it was a rocker, that would server the same purpose as two buttons.

    Mine is set to BBM but I rarely use it. Being right handed it's annoying to press I wish there was a left side key like my bold.
