About this app

This app can create a shortcut to an application from the list of activities which are installed on your phone.
Even if so many applications are installed, you can choose an activity smoothly.

You can also use the QuickShortcutMaker for searching the app which you want to launch.
If you want to use the app which you don't use frequently, maybe you have no shortcuts for it. So, you may have to search the app from a list of many apps. Even if you know the name of the app, it's hard to find it.
In this situation, the QuickShortcutMaker will help you finding the app. Please try!

This may be useful. But please use it at your own risk!
You can make shortcuts to hidden setting screens which are usually not accessible.
Even if you encountered any problems using this app or shortcuts created by this app, I don't have any responsibility about that. Please be sure to use this app at your own risk.

About Internet access permission:
From the version 2.0.1, for a more rapid improvement of the app, you will be requested an additional permission to access network so that the app can send a detailed error report to developer.
The app uses network only to send error reports.
And when it communicates, a confirmation message will be displayed, so please rest assured.

for Launcher3 of Cyanogenmod
If you cannot create shortcut, please try the following steps:
1. Long-tap the home screen.
2. Tap "WIDGETS".
3. Long-tap "Activities" which has the QuickShortcutMaker's icon.
4. Drag it to somewhere on the screen.
5. QuickShortcutMaker will be launched.
6. Select an activity, edit it, and tap "Create".
7. A shortcut will be created on the home screen.

A good app that I've used for years, and had been flawless on all my devices until my recent upgrade to Android 10. Now creating shortcuts doesn't work at all. I've used this app for 7+ years since it's inception, and I never had any issues over the years with multiple devices, even though development never progressed past 2014. Thanks for a great six years, Sika524! This is still a great app for older handsets, but now the time has come for something newer & more effective to take its place.

Great app. Verizon disabled Samsung Cloud backup. Even with this app it will not allow you to create a shortcut to easily access Samsung backup. BUT, you can add the app as a favorite within QuickShortcutMaker and run it from there, you just can't create the shortcut on your desktop or in the apps launcher. You search for Samsung Account Storage and click on the ...backup.SamsungBackup and once in it you can add as a favorite and also "Try" which allows you to run it. Verizon is so evil...

Does not appear to work on Android 8 devices. I tried on both and tablet and phone with Android 8. Everything appeared to be OK until you actually tried to create a shortcut. The shortcut was nowhere to be found. It works fine on my older Android 6 device. I see that the last update was in 2014 so I assume the author is no longer supporting the app.
