Shortcut to launch app



Is there a way to launch an app from a keyboard shortcut on BB10? (e.g. shift+l)

Re: Shortcut to launch app

On a Q10/Q5 you can start typing the name of the app you want to launch and it will appear on the screen to click on. There is also the ShortCutManager class for AIR if you'd like to map some keyboard shortcuts in your app.
