APP OF THE DAY: Shortcuts

APP OF THE DAY: Shortcuts

A very simple app, but so useful

Cost: Free | Developer: Sheerwater | Platform: Symbian^3 | 0.18 MB |

If you regularly use certain apps, there might come a point where you want to access them quickly without needing to navigate needless menus.

What the Shortcuts app does is that it enables you change the quick launch shortcuts on your Nokia device.

It works simply by allowing you to drag-and-drop icons to the shortcut bar to create instant access to your most used apps.

While Nokia devices such as the N9 already come pre-loaded with standard quick launch shortcuts, the user can now personalise them and swap out the lesser used standard shortcuts with more practical ones.

So if you don’t use your web browser or calendar very often, you can swap them out with shortcuts to Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja instead.

Pros: Easy way to personalise your shortcuts.

Cons: Need to be vigilant that you don’t remove a shortcut you actually may need.

Verdict: Shortcut will provide a much welcome shortcut to your favourite apps.
