What Are the G2 Quick Keys? (UPDATED)
While looking at the leaked G2 pictures from yesterday, our eagle-eyed Chuck Falzone noticed something hiding in plain sight. One of the icons listed on the home screen for the handset shows a shortcut for an app called Quick Keys. Blowing things up a bit, he also found three hard keys on the keyboard which look much like the icon. We’re going to Occam’s razor approach and figure these are programmable buttons designed to give one-touch access to your favorite or most-used apps. Anyone care to throw another idea at us?
Update: One of our readers, tubaking, let us know in comments on this post that he was able to pull the Quick Keys app from the leaked G2 build and install it on his phone. This let him get a shot of the app’s set-up instructions, which he took pictures of and posted on Twitter:
The instructions confirm what we suspected: Quick Keys will let G2 owners “quickly access super useful Google shortcuts and other applications that may take multiple steps to access.”
