dg Quick Cut
by kaze0 on 2/9/2010 | ; Tags: - none - | 0 comments

Creates new shortcuts in the launcher for a few extra functions such as:

  • Instantly dialing a phone number
  • Jumping straight to the new contact dialog, to avoid having to open up the contacts app and click new
  • Directions to certain locations

It's been developed in a way, where it includes a small list of shortcuts with the app, but on start, it pulls a new list from the web. This way I can update shortcuts as they come in, without requiring people to redownload the app.

Also allows copying of existing shortcuts, so universal search can be even more universal. Can't remember if the photo app is named gallery, photos, or pictures? Simply copy the default shortcut and put all 3 names.

It requires the com.palm.app naming convention in order to access the list of current shortcuts. This does not affect where the app installs or whether it can be uninstalled.

If you would like to help come up with new shortcuts. You can look through the source code of the pre-installed apps, specifically the app-assistant.js files. In there you should be able to find launch parameters for that app. Let me know if you find anything interesting.

Please report any bugs that you find to:
