Try this shortcut tool, i've never used it but it's suppose to do what you would like.

the shortcut tool launchers a user configured website - it's a simple app that allows people to visit their favourite website with a single click rather than having to laauch the blackberry browser, enter bookmarks and choose their site.

Unzip the files to a folder and use your desktop manager to install the app. Point to the .alx file for the install.

Do you know you if there is a way to change the icon or the name for this app?

Because I would like to use this app, for about 15 end users, but I would like to at least change the name if possible!!!!

srl7741 08-23-2006 02:01 PM

No i don't think you can change the icon? I don't think the name can be changed either?

I've never used it. I just happen to find it and the first post/user was looking for something like it so i thought i would help or try to help some.

Well, I figure I ask. Either way you've been more than helpful. Thanks!

works great, thanks for the heads up. I would like to know how to change that icon to a more suitable shortcut.(y)

This sounds promising, would you happen to know who developed it, I was thinking about trying to get something designed for our site.
