    Convenience Key

    I was just wondering, what is everyone's convenience key set to? I feel like I could use it for something useful but not sure what to set it with. What do you use it for?

    I have mine set to "do nothing". It's too easy to accidentally push!
    BB then, now, forever!

    Interesting to see a pattern, screen shot application are mostly used for the convenience key vs anything else you could use it for.

    Mine was set to camera for a while. Then I realized it was a waste as I could quickly access it with (space) to QuickLaunch then programmed C key for Camera. Has been programmed to nothing for a bit. I was using Vlingo which required this setting. Never bothered to change it. Guess the convenience key isn't that important to me.

    Good choice also... though I thought I saw that as an option to schedule within MeterBerry.. down now so I can't check. Maybe it was something similar that it was clearing.

    You can also clear the Event Log by pressing the Alt key+LGLG from the main screen #BBTips

    Hello midinc,

    Seems there are four different versions of Screen Muncher, which I have provided below;


    The one I have is a (full version) promotion, Complimentary of BlackBerry, which expired on May 31, 2012, other users have the retail (full version), both have BBM Connected Application Access.

    The differences, between the full version and the free version of Screen Muncher, lets you remove the watermark, change colors, turn off sound & other stuff.

    Hope this may help some users of Screen Muncher.

    Thank you.

    Hi, Thanks for the great info. I didn't know there was amany screen munchers.

    I don't even know which of the four I have. I thought it was just called Pro. The one I have lets me do what you suggest and remove the watermark, etc. Removing the watermark was the reason i bought it.

    Great to see some friendly, informative advice here.

    Anytime midinc,

    I try to get as much information to help everyone, plus I'm a big Screen Muncher fan.

    Thank you.

    I'm coming in on this thread a bit late, but here's my two cents worth...

    My convenience key is set to default (camera). BUT, I use VersaTool to give me a few others. Double press on the convenience key launches the video camera. Double press on "mute" button launches CaptureIt, Double press on "escape" key launches the clock. Double press on the "end" key launches a popup menu with a few often-used apps (password keeper, voice notes recorder, flashlight, etc.). ~ecm

    I use Capture It by The TechMogul... I love having my screen capture tool at the tip of my thumb. I've been using capture it since I bought my 9530 when first released. I think the reason why I keep it on my convenience key is because using these apps through the menu often captures the menu as well. The only issue I've had with this option is that I do have a lot of pocket shots, but that gives me something to do in my down time, lol!
