There’s a shortcut app available for BlackBerry that allows you to have a place to reach all your apps with a single letter or click. It’s an app that adds to versatility and to convenience. The app is Super QWERTY by MMMOO and it’s available for $3.99 in the BlackBerry Sync Store.
MMMOOO has several different programs and themes. Super QWERTY leaves the access of your apps and creates the shortcuts at your fingertips. It works for 4.2 and up, and has two versions, wifi and non-wifi.
The description is as follows: Super QWERTY enable you to quick access your applications like Messages, SMS, Tasks, Browser, BBM, Calendar, Google Maps, Gmail, IM+, Opera, MyPhone, Ever Light II etc just with one key. One must have tool on Blackberry.
It includes the following features:
- - The fastest way to access your applications at present.

I tested this application on my BlackBerry Tour 9630, and as with all MMMOOO products, you purchase using the pin and you download to your pc, unzip your files, and bring to your BlackBerry through the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
I installed the app and there in my downloads sits the fiery icon Super QWERTY. The first thing you need to do is register the pin through the app. After registering, you’re able to start using the app. This is how you start using the application. You’ll see the list available of all your apps. You can set a letter, both upper and lower case. You use these commands as short cuts. To take advantage of these settings you have to go to your call options and change the screen dialing to “no”. I found it easier for me to just set the Q to open Super QWERTY since some of my opening apps by default would change such as t opens tasks and would not allow Tweet Genius to open up, which is what I had set to t. So I just opened Super QWERTY and then clicked on each one.
It makes reaching your apps extremely convenient as you don’t have to go into the folder and find your app, you can reach them all through the Super Qwerty app. So what makes this an app you would like to have? For the sake of having a one place to find them all, for the convenience of being able to have short cuts utilizing your keyboard. Other apps I have start with the key, only a few preset ones would not function as I had set them to do. But they all work through the Super QWERTY. For the price it isn’t bad. We’ve learned to take advantage of our short cut side keys, so why not use our keyboard for easier short cuts?
I like the extreme easy accessibility, the way it comes up, the help page, it all works nice, and especially for the price. If you’re looking for a short cut, this one’s great. It’s simple and very basic, it’s not a huge battery and memory user, and it’s not filled with pics and colors, just very basic.
Pros are that it’s all in one spot and I listed, not a killer on your battery or memory. If you have several apps you use, this is so easy and nice to use, so you don’t have to search and find anymore.
The con was that it didn’t work from all keys even after following the instructions, and it’s because some of those apps are rooted to certain keys.
