ShortKeys by its name implies, is a way for Android users to grab most of the
things readily available to them on their Keyboard. Shortkeys helps them create
their own shortcuts and save addresses, and let them customize their frequently
used sentences or words to be used anytime needed again.

The Backstory

When thinking about developing any product, the main theme of it is to make the lives of people easier and simpler. To provide them most of the things readily available which helps them overcome stress and live a more peaceful life, we came up with an inhouse product idea.

We worked on the product idea to make the lives of Android phone users easier by providing them with most of the things readily available so they don’t have to perform their common tasks over and again.

Product Features

Application Shortcuts

We have implemented a functionality of creating an Application Shortcut in which any application available within the phone can be memorized by any of the keyboard keys that is assigned to it. Anytime the shortcut key assigned to any application is pressed, the user can find the application/applications suggestions assigned to that key without navigating specifically towards it through basic navigation.

Save Address

There are a lot of addresses may be of people, restaurants, places or others which users may like to save. Such addresses can be used very frequently to text other people for briefing them while typing so much using numbers, letters, special characters etc. The application allows users to save addresses and copy paste them on their text area whenever needed.

Appearance

The application lets users customize their keyboard's design by themselves. They can put a background color or even can add any image of their choice to give their keyboards a new look and feel.

Text Replacement

There are many long phrases which are used so frequently. These words can be customized into any small character and on typing it, the full phrase can be displayed while letting user’s fingers relief from typing so much.

Speed Dial

Assigning people’s phone number to any keyboard integer and then using that integer to make a call to the assigned contact is implemented in the application. This lets the users to make a call while just making 2 taps on the keyboard instead of navigating to a lot of places.
