I picked up ShortcutMe almost a week ago again for the Bold 9930 on 7.0 and without a doubt cannot get over how much I am loving this app again. When I saw that it would be our Deal of the Day today I knew I’d better share some words before the full review was finished.
ShortcutMe by Fonware Ltd. is normally $4.99 which is reasonable. But for today September the 2nd, 2011 you can grab a copy for only $1.99! That’s a true 60% savings. See these Features below for starters.

We know there’s plenty of applications like this on the market. Even one very popular one that I myself used for years. But sometimes with new operating systems, including the new hardware and less side buttons on the Bold 9900/9930 and Torch 9850/9860 smartphones. And I love it!
Thanks to the recommendation from a good friend, I’ve come to revisit this app. Fonware has really put some great time and skill into making it a more cohesive design. Launch by pressing the Spacebar, from there you can add just about anything you’d love to create a shortcut to. The design streamlines right into the BlackBerry OS and looks native. Although you can tweak special preferences like colors and many configurations. This app had support for every type of BlackBerry device including multiclick, your going to love it! Grab it now before 09/03/11 at the discount price, or full price beginning 09/03.11! Full review coming soon.
