HotKeys 3.00

HotKeys, the premier task launcher for EPOC, originally developed by Henry Hirst, proves that beauty is more than skin deep.

HotKeys is a task launcher. It augments the system screen by extending the available options for launching programs and documents, and provides enhanced integration of the current system features. It is designed to be fast, flexible and very easy to use, and has a range of tightly focused features. These are presented on a custom interface, specially designed for the task, yet which has all the familiarity of the system folders.
