Add launcher icon shortcuts for Quick-Keys Keyboard 1
Quick Keys Keyboard, by D Gardner, is an app that you can purchase to give you access to a virtual keyboard on any webOS device from the original Palm Pre to the HP TouchPad, along with adding the ability to define up to 57 pre-defined responses. By default, initially activating the keyboard is a four-step process: open the "Quick-keys Keyboard" app, toggle the "Enable Keyboard" switch to "ON", close the app card, and then tap on the Quick-Keys Keyboard dashboard notification to display the virtual keyboard. However, there is a simple way to cut out half of these steps using a feature built into the app.
Once you open the app and view the "Keyboard settings" card, scroll down to the bottom where you will see an "Add Quick-Key Launcher" button. Tapping this will add a new Launcher icon called "QK Launcher". This will cut out the two middle steps above, so now all you need to do is tap the icon and then activate the keyboard in the dashboard when needed. There is also an "Add App-Mode Launcher" button that will launch the more detailed "app mode" view for the Quick Keys keyboard.
Quick-Keys Keyboard is available in the webOS App Catalog for $1.25 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 1.4.5 or higher
