mobile default iconPhone Shortcuts for Symbian Publisher's description

Phone Shortcuts is a software tool which allows you to start the applications faster using shortcuts, hotkeys and the start at boot (autoboot) feature.

Phone Shortcuts is a software tool which allows you to start the applications faster using shortcuts, hotkeys and the start at boot (autoboot) feature. The main screen of the application shows you a grid of shortcuts you can define. For each shortcut you can associate an application and edit its settings in order to start it faster. Also, each shortcut is associated by default with the phone’s numeric keys from 1-9, 0, * and # (hotkeys).

The application defined for a shortcut can simply (and faster) be started by pressing the associated key (hotkey) for a specified period of time even the Phone Shortcuts is not running. You can keep the hotkey pressed for its timeout (long press) no matter what the phone shows and the application will be started. There is no need to have the Phone Shortcuts running.

Due to the background service the hotkeys will be active anytime if you enabled them. If you do not wish to use hotkeys you can still start the applications faster by (long) pressing the key 'C' (clear). This will automatically start the Phone Shortcuts tool allowing you to select a shortcut from its main menu grid. In the main menu grid, just simply press the associated key of the shortcut and the application will be started also.
