NikkiSoft has updated QuickLaunch with support for more applications as well as some new features. Version 2.17.1 is available for the BlackBerry Curve 8900, Bold 9000 and version 2.18 for the Bold 9700, with support for other devices coming soon. Here’s what’s new in 2.17.1:
- Check for Updates function
- Get updates from within QuickLaunch
- Shortcuts shown in menu item
- BBM5, Brickbreaker & Pandora Support
- Yahoo, Google Talk and MSN msngr Support
- BBM5 Support

New in version 2.18:
- 3 Letter Shortcuts – You can now assign shortcuts with 1-3 characters. For example:
- DI = Device Info
- CNY = Call New York
- BT = Bluetooth Toggle
- Web Search – This is added functionality to the already existing Google, Wikipedia and Dictionary search included in previous versions of QuickLaunch. Now with Web Search you can quickly search using the following sites:
- Google, Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, eBay, BBC, Google News, Google Images, YouTube, iMDb, Dictionary, Thesaurus, Wikipedia
- PNG format Screen Capture
- The QuickLaunch screen capture function now saves images in .png format for higher quality images.
QuickLaunch is available for all BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5 and higher. While version 2.17.1 or 2.18 aren’t available for all devices yet you can still get it for $4.99 in the store and upgrade to the new version for free once it’s out. I highly recommend this app!
