    Improved text input

    Advertisement



    When I was a Treo user I used a simple little app that provided the same "hold to get uppercase" functionality that came stock on the BB. Now that I'm a BB user, I miss the other thing that app provided: double-click to get the shifted character. For example, if I wanted to input a ? I could double-click on V. You could adjust the timing in milliseconds to get just the right timing in the double-click. This was very easy to get used to and streamlined input on the Treo a lot.

    Does such a thing exist for the Blackberry Curve?

    There should be a ? key and a Shift key on the Curve .

    Yes, I understand that I can do it the conventional way. I was just curious if anyone knew of an app or hidden feature that provided the same functionality using double-click.

    Thanks. That's what I suspected but I'm new enough to the BB that I thought I'd ask.

    You can hold a character, and then scroll to get hidden characters....
