Reviews From google play store

I liked this app a lot. I could create my own settings shortcuts to access on my phone. This no longer works. When I try to create shortcuts, the app switches to my home screen and nothing happens. I will update the review if this can get resolved.

Can't deny that i love the app but thing i don't like is some of the icons are not high quality even though in the settings we find the apps really sharp and high quality. Don't get me wrong i love the app but it kinda bugs me and because of the icon quality we can (sometimes) easily tell the difference between normal apps and the quickshortcutmaker's widgets.

I what I really like about your app ... I have multiple smart plugs and I use your app to label each one of them.... Very helpful to identify the different plugs.... Thanks again for making a great app 👍 Also ... To all of you that have given it only 1 🌟... Or say it's not working.... Remember this is a widget app.... You have to creat a widget to add to the home screen.... At first I thought this was not working until I went to my Galaxy s9 widgets and found it,then it works great 😀

This app has come in handy so many times when I've been personalizing and organizing my app icons to display in alpha-numeric format on my mobile device homepages. It's now very easy to find any of more than 120 apps which can be found in ordered fashion as opposed to random, haphazard placement. Excellent rating for an excellent and necessary app!

Useless app for Samsung A50. First problem: if I try the app it never gets back to qsm. I have to force close, wait and reopen (the back button does not close the app). Annoying but not show stopper. Major problem: after I have finished and click create, the qsm app closes and nothing happens. Nothing is added to home screen. Not even inside qsm it remembers the name and/or icon I selected ! I tried various workarounds (eg simpler names) to no avail.

Bad UI; you have to first create the shortcut in the app, then you have to add the app's widget, then associate the shortcut of choice with the widget instance; you can't change the icon or title. So as an example, I created a shortcut to the app manager, but it still has the icon and title of settings.

Wonderful! Xaiomi Mi Max 3 MIUI 9 added Game Booster to optimize games. I set it up and forgot about it. MIUI 10 came out and "hid" it, even though it was still enabled and active, and now impossible to modify. But THIS makes an internal function easily available again. Thanks!!

You can open the shortcut you want from the app but it can't create the shortcut on homescreen. Pretty useless somebody can say but for Android 9+ users is something very useful but it would be better if we could make the shortcut. Please fix it.

went to make a shortcut once I selected a picture for the icon, it went to the home screen and I couldn't for the life of me find the shortcut! seems a good app, just isn't working for me shupshup

Love this app on my other phone. Too bad it won't work right on my Lg Stylo4 so SAD when I click "create" then my live wallpaper"flashes" or blinks, but no new icon is placed on the homepage/desktop :(. Too bad for me.

I have used this app forever. Can't believe I've never written a review. Works as it should even now on my note 10+. One of my favorite must have apps to ensure my phone works seamlessly and functions how I like on every phone I own.

Installed this app to access the hidden settings in Android pie. Works flawlessly though lost access to the internet when private DNS mode was enabled. Figured a workaround to resolve the issue by changing the IP settings from DHCP to static....

Well it just doesn't work. No shortcuts appeared so i thought "Oh! It's in widgets!" It wasn't, then i though maybe the quickshortcut maker widget will create the shortcut I want... and it didn't. Really good idea though.

This app helps me disable dual clock on my phone.. However, it's not working now after I updated to android 10. Hopefully the developer will fix this the soonest. Thanks thanks.

Worthless. Once you hit create it takes you to the homescreen but there's no newly named app!!?? Using it on a S9 version 9 software. I tired this app last year and it didn't work either.

Doesn't work. When clicking Try, says doesn't have permissions. When checking app to set permissions, the option is greyed out. When clicking Create, nothing happens. Using on an lg v50.

I have wanted to change three or four icon lables on my home page for some time now. Frustrated & fed up with the way my homepage looked and then I found this. Wow, I love this simple little program. I changed the three titles of those troublesome app icons in about 2 minutes or less. Could not be happier with this. thank you, thank you, thank you.

This app has helped me create and design unique launcher themes and UI (strictly for personal use) on my many Android devices that impresses even my most advanced techno geek friends go "how'd you do that?" Mainly, I am able to create shortcuts for my typically used functions that normally takes three or more steps to get to if one did not know how to make the best of shortcuts. Took me a while to find every shortcut manually, but this app straight up, just led me to all of them.

Normal searching and trying the activity is fine, but the app actually never creates the launcher icon, the Create button has no effect. Incremental search doesn't work, I have to switch to normal search every time.

Cannot get it to work on my Galaxy S7 (Verizon) Seems like it would be a great app, if only it would actually create a shortcut.

Love this app. Being able to create my own shortcuts is fantastic. I also like that I have the ability to change stock app icons to something I prefer. This app is a must have for me on every device.

Works great, only quibble is if you launch the app directly rather than by adding a widget, it doesn't do anything (and doesn't tell you it didn't do anything). At least on my S9.

I use this shortcut creator to access Bixby Home on my Tab S4 when using Microsoft Launcher (Bixby Home can usually only be accessed by swiping right on the default OneUI home screen, at least until the Tab S4 gets full Bixby functionality like the Tab S5e which allows the power button to be used as a Bixby button - and even that only gets Bixby Voice in some markets, Samsung & their crazy artificial limitations). As Andrew Hamiltom mentions, this app needs to be used as a widget to work on Pie.

Not compatible with all Android versions. Don't bother downloading if you have latest versions for instance. The 1-star is for the developpers not warning users the app hasn't been upgraded since 2014!!!!

Doesn't seem to work: I setup short cut to a setting within settings e.g. usb tethering and click create and the app exits. Where do I find my newly created short cut? Doing this on Samsung A40 Android 9.

Previously used this app and it's very easy to get the advanced shortcuts on your home screen. Works great!

Perfect! Just needed a way to access multiple lock screen images, this is perfect.

Does not create a shortcut. It let's me choose what I want. It tests just fine. When you choose create though, it does absolutely nothing.

Used to work on my older Android device (5.x), but never creates shortcut on my newer device (8.x). Also search is a PITA to get working right.

Does NOTHING at all. I have tried several apps. After hitting 'create', QuickShortcutMaker exits with NOHTHING done at all.

Works on Andriod OREO! MUST open app on home screen as widget 1st then go in and create what you want. It will pop up on home screen as that widget. Used to quickly get through settings so I can easily turn off my Mobile Data seeing as my new phone doesn't have the option in the task bar!

Has worked great for many years, only thing buggy is the text search (have to go to fav tab & back for search to update).

Revised: S8 android Pie - I had to uninstall because I could not find the shortcuts after I made them. They were not showing up on any screen or in any file that I could find. I sent an email but so far I have not heard back.

Updated review: app looked nice but nothing I did in app changed anything. Trying to learn more just cycled thru endless circles of non-information.

Nice app. I had forgotten my password of file safe and this device helped me reset my password in no time. Thanks a lot!

After change of label name, we press create after immediate click the app closes . Don't no where the shortcut is created . If u know the solution , just text me back !!

Would rate it higher but its VERY ANNOYING to be solicitated for a rating EVERY TIME I do anything in the app... Not just every tike its run but every shortcut made. If it wasnt for this annoyance id give you a 4+ good base but need to add more functionality

Just want to let anyone on 8 or 9 who's having problems getting the shortcuts to show up on the home screen after hitting create... try doing it from the widgets menu of your launcher. widgets -> shortcuts -> quickshortcutmaker -> create shortcut Worked for me this way

Love it. Making icons easier for older person to understand

Doesn't make shortcuts on s10e. When I press create it jumps to my homepage.

Works on Android Pie but you have to launch it as a widget, not an app. If you launch it as an app it will act like it's creating the shortcut but the shortcut will not get created.

Was once one of my favourites, but it's useless now. Probably because of some Android OS update which renders this app useless, but I'd still like to see it being updated. Can't add any shortcuts to the homescreen at the moment

Easy to use, does what it promises. You can select the application or the activity to create shortcut for, rename the title and change the icon. No annoying advertisements, nagging for registration or puchase. It's free. Best of all, does not requires nonsense or excessive permissions. The only one, full network access can be denied. Why is it needed at all? Anyway, it deserves the 5 stars. Thank you.

2 hours trying to create a very simple shortcut. no instructions, but looked easy enough. created shortcut 4 times, app exited without confirmation. nothing. more enjoyable counting the threads in my carpet. go back to the drowing board

This is a very useful app -- I have been using it for several years on three different phones, always with great success. Highly recommended. This app can improve the efficiency and ease of using your mobile phone significantly -- e.g. things that used to take many clicks can be done with a single one. And even more: the app can help you do things which were impossible before. This app is expert-friendly: the more you know about Android and the greater expert you are the more you'll enjoy using it. It is also frustration-free for advanced users. Note: you have to know what you are doing when using the app, not for people with a lack of attention to detail. Some basic understanding of how an operating system works is recommended.

Doesn't work on newer phones anymore. App hasn't been updated since 2014!

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.

this app allowed me to install samsung cloud on my Verizon phone. i didn't realize until today that verizon hides the app so you are more inclined to pay for their cloud storage.

With the Oreo update, Google/Blackberry omitted the Wifi calling menu on the KeyOne BE, & although the feature continued to work, accessing it became an issue. If u were lucky to have "Wifi Calling Preferred" selected prior to the update, the permanent notification remained - so np. But if not? No access to the Wifi Calling MENU meant NO Wifi calling...unless the Powers-that-be took action. They didnt. This meant at home, my K1 was DATA ONLY. HOW to find that menu? QuickShortcutMaker's THE. FIX.

Intuitive and easy-to-use. Easily the best app of its kind in the store.

5 STARS!! I highly recommended to anyone who wants to display widgets on your home screen or disable a dual clock. It is really easy to use and very, very helpful. I've been searching on how to disable my dual clock cause my LG U+ doesn't have anything to disable my (Korea) dual clock. I can really say I'm a satisfied user of this app

Easily jump app activity for example like opening screen, digging more feature on device's setting app.

Does not work on Samsung S9 running Android 9. This version, 2.4 was last updated Feb 2014! Over 5 years ago. You go through the process of renaming, creating a new shortcut. Appears that it worked. GOOD LUCK finding the new shortcut. It's no where to be found. Not in any list, not on any screen. I am certain it's not creating the shortcut. Tried this with numerous apps - same result, no new shortcuts can be found. Uninstalled! It's an OLD app that does not work in 9 and I'm betting 8 too.

Very easy to use and does what it claims. I have an S7 and I have to use the widget technique to work correctly.

I've been trying to unlock my file safe for a while now so I tried searching a solution from YT and came across with this vid tutorial that need to dl an app, I'm having a doubt that it will not work but why not give it a shot right? So I immediately installed this and wow I didn't expect that it would actually work that easily! I can access my file safe now~ This app is really great!

Not very useful. It can create a shortcut, but only within the app. I want to create a shortcut to be available on the device screen or "desktop".

This helped me a bunch but there is a huge problem! Shortcuts aint appearing in my homescreen! My device is Redmi note 5 and I use poco launcher. please fix it.

Loading icons and activities can be a little slow, but this is a great, useful and clever app! If you've ever felt like tapping your way to a specific part of an app was tedious or inefficient, then take a couple minutes to set up some shortcuts and you'll be extremely satisfied.

After I searched for A-gps settings, I tried to open it but it failed. This app seems like it doesn't work. I am using Xiaomi device with MIUI10.3.1.0👎👎👎

It finally worked for me on my galaxy s7 sprint variant since hotspot did not work anymore after oreo update, but now this app saved me and now I can access hotspot mode... A big thanks to the developers..😄😊👌

Unfortunately, this app doesn't work. Nothing happens after I'am trying to add a shortcut to display. Besides it doesn't request for root or other permissions. Looks weird..

Grear concept but it is not creating a shortcut on Android 9.0, and no widget, van you please fix?

Great app for inaccessible apps and widgets! Easy to use.

Still a little new, but straight out of the box I threw a tough task that required several access commands before arriving at the option that I needed and it created this new command path quickly plus letting me name the shortcut which should app easier to remember best one Ive tried yet I believe I am going to be well benefitted by this I will try to more to this later.

Did not allow me to add a shortcut to app manager on my Samsung Note 9. I found and tested the correct function to make sure it worked and it did. I chose "create" and the app took me to the home screen where it should have created the shortcut but there was nothing there. I tried again multiple times but it would not have the shortcut. Uninstalling this waste of time.

it's incapable of creating a shortcut on home screen, and it can't modify parameters of my hotspot.

Wanted it solely for renaming an icon, which it did flawlessly. I'll now experiment with the other aspects

This app is great. You can use it to skip straight to the part of the app you're interested in, bypassing splash screens. On Android 8+ you can often do this by dragging an activity icon from the shortcut icon context menu, but with this app you can customise the name and icon. I use it for Settings too. The biggest missing feature is the ability to import/export your favourites to use on another phone. Bug: Create button doesn't work in Android 8 unless you launched the app via add widget.

awesome, just a few problems. search bar not working and can't select icon file from file explorer. please add these features

Does what it says. Small compact easy. But needs some updating

Exactly what you need to enable the Samsung cloud app on your Verizon phone.

Great for shortcuts and discovering hidden menus wish that some hidden menus which require extra permissions could be accessed as well. Although.. that is my only complaint, but it actually an be seen as a positive thing as well because it means that privacy is still being looked at seriously by the developer so ill leave it at 5 stars. Tested on LG V20 (H910) which is North American AT&T single sim version.

Still fantastic after all these years. Killer feature: ***EASILY TESTS SHORTCUT before creating it! making it so easy to jump to most any of your App's direct functions or settings, saving many steps for things you do often on your phone. Examples: 1-tap icon to create a new Alarm, 1-tap to open specific Google Doc, and so on. Pairs beautifully w/ Nova Launcher or Pixel & gives much easier way to find various shortcuts within an app because of easy on-the-fly testing; less starting over again!

Wow!! fantastic software application..👌👌👌 I not expected this app will works on my phone but it is really worked. I forgot my OPPO a37 (security centre) pattern look, and I saw many videos in YouTube to unlock my phone but it is waste of time, then I downloaded this app and I reset my password, I am confused how it is works on my phone without root😯😯😯??

Solved problem on Oreo: After installing, long press on home screen, select widgets, find Quick Shortcut Maker, drop widget (not icon) onto home screen, app opens, select action, tap 'Create'. The shortcut appears where you dropped the widget. So glad to have it working again! Far better than the others. Thanks! Samsung S7 Active, android 8.0

It can't rename existed shortcut, only create a new one. Also it's very beautiful.

Please help me. When I added the new password that I want, it starts to lag like the password is there, it wont tell me to put the password again. Please fix it 'cause I really want to open it.

Still the best I've tried for android marshmallow. Does not create the shortcut anymore in Pie though, last update was 2014.

BEST APP EVER! bought a stereo from gearbest and its very limited in ways to customize the stereo. this solved all my issues. power/performance and adjusting brightness mainly, havent even jumped into it completely. im sure ill find some other stuff id like to change :) thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

It used to be great on my Samsung s7 edge nougat but when a new firmware containing oreo was released, this app could not access certain shortcuts anymore such as sub menu/option for phones as it require additional permission that does not even pops up to for users to allow or deny. I'm scratching my head as to where I could figure out what additional permission needed. This is true for my other Samsung oreo based firmware phones as well.

This Really Helped me to make quick shortcuts if needed ay most times!

Very useful and reliable app. Best tryout till now.👍

Well on Android pie this is the only action shortcut maker that works, including system apps, via a non pin creation method so that's cool. However there is a problematic bug, many icons for apps don't show and quite a few apps appear twice. Clearing the cache doesn't help, nor reinstall.

Awesome! The ability to make shortcuts to task-oriented entry points within a app is unheard of as far as I know!

My games started lagging after using this.snapdragon 635 6gb ram still how?.please solve.until that time try another app.this one is corrupt

does exactly what it says on the tin you can change an icon completely and also write to underneath it exactly what you wanted to say, the app still work flawlessly I cannot believe they are giving this away for free thank you very much to the developers rated 5 Stars definitely thanks once again no other app on the market comes close!

Absolutely love this app! It is the only one that I could find every shortcut I need!

Fantastic app to create a shortcut. One of my must install whenever I setup my phone. Huge thanks for creating this useful app :)

Does not change labels. Instead use Create Shortcut App - works on Android Pie

Needed a way to get to the System UI Tuner and add Tap to Lock on my Pixel 3. Note: You need to add a widget and then assign the shortcut to it. Tapping create w/o a widget didn't work - a bit misleading IMO. The app itself works flawlessly!

Does Nothing on Samsung Note 10+, press create shortcut and nothing appears....

Worked to remove icon frames. Thank you!

Thanks a lot... this app has caliber to bring Volte (airtel in my case) for non volte showing devices like asus zenfone max pro m2.

This app allowed me to install live wallpapers on Xiaomi phones easily. Thank you.

Worked at first but when I yesterday accidentally removed the shortcut I can no longer re-create it. Have tried re-installing the app but nothing changed. I am on a Oneplus 5, please fix this :) The app does work but when clicking the "create" button no shortcut appears on my home screen

So far so good. Intuitive GUI. Easily created chromecast shortcut in a couple of minutes. No bugs found (so far). Expect to use plenty in future. One enhancement suggestion: Add capability to assign kb shortcut to created shortcuts (for tablets).

Does not create anything. Just shuts down when I click "Create". Tried the "Shortcut Creator" app instead, that worked!

Does not work on Xiaomi Phones. Shortcuts do not appear.

Great app, but extremely tedious when trying to create several shortcuts because the app closes after each creation. You must navigate through your large list of "activities" to find the place you were at before it closed that aspect is an awful design and annoyance.

Search function doesnt work but the shortcuts you can make save time once you manage to find what you're looking for
