I have an app that contains a function that I want to be run when the user hold down a keyboard key. The app will always run in the background and I'd like it to listen for the user to hold down the "a" key even when the user is in any app (mail, calendar, third party app, etc.). Can this be done?

OK, But if I want to listen to a menu click on the BBEmail application for example, in order to customize my menu item to include the currently selected information (as they currently do in the email application), how would I do that if I can't listen to another application's key activity (i.e via keyListener)
