It looks like NikkiSoft has finally release v3.0 to use non-touch users. As you know, QuickLaunch v3.0 was release a few days ago, however it was only launched for touchscreen devices. Originally TrackPad/Ball users got the big shaft, but today that all changed.
If you already have QuickLaunch this will be a $1.99 upgrade for you. If not, QL is not that expensive of an application and is WAY worth it. Check out the link below to purchase your very own copy, and if you are already using v3.0 let us know what you think about it.

Ok, I don't get it. I've clicked on the upgrade link a half dozen times, followed the login, and it still wants $4.99? What am I missing?
Good news is I finally got the update to work. Bad news is the 3.0 that BBOS is currently offering is NOT for the Tour! No matter what the store says, even though it lists the Tour 9630, it is not for the Tour. It is the version for the Storm. After a couple of 1am emails with Nikkisoft, they nicely let me know that the Tour version has NOT been released yet, but should be in the next few days. Save your $1.99 for a while, this will not work on your Tour. :irked:
i don"t know what is going on. when i add media-pictures or media-music or media-ringtones to my list, instead of going to that particular selection, it goes to the entire media folder. is anybody else having this prblem? if so, is there a fix? i am running mark hayes v2 hybrid for my 9550. any enlightenment would be appreciated.:aargh4:
