This app is rated 5 by 2 users who are using this app. To know more about the company/developer, visit AlexTernHome website who developed it. com.alextern.shortcuthelper.apk apps can be downloaded and installed on Android 4.0.x and higher Android devices. The Latest Version of 3.1.4 Available for download. Download the app using your favorite browser and click Install to install the application. Please note that we provide both basic and pure APK files and faster download speeds than APK Mirror. This app APK has been downloaded 1311+ times on store. You can also download com.alextern.shortcuthelper APK and run it with the popular Android Emulators.

This application allows you to create shortcuts on local files and folders, applications, settings, contacts, messages and even you can customize shortcuts from other app. You can provide your own shortcut title and use many different features for customize shortcut icon: use icon of the related application, crop image exported from external gallery, import icons from file, use icon from external theme. In additional you can organize shortcuts in Collections database using different methods like hierarchy or tags. Later you can use Collections dialogs for get quick access to the organized shortcuts. 

Some features require Pro mode (an in-app purchase) but Trial mode does not block them at first and you're given time to test them. Trial is absolutely IDENTICAL to Pro so don't buy Pro if you think that something will be changed. 

On Android Oreo (8.0) there is a new way for add shortcuts on the main screen and the Launcher automatically add small Shortcut Creator icon a the right bottom corner of any shortcut icon. I'm find only one workaround for this - add from widgets. Please check related how-to video on the first page of the app.

Features of Shortcut Creator:
- ability to create shortcuts on local files, folders, applications, settings, contacts and messages.
- use additional free component for create shortcuts on switcher on some settings and also composite mode switcher.
- ability to re-use already created shortcuts in History feature and add shortcuts from another apps.
- organize all your shortcuts in Collections database with ability to export/import selected shortcuts.
- the system can automatically setup tags for each type of shortcut; for apps it also can add the app category; the user can easy add any other custom tags.
- flexible layout and appearance system for File Browser and Collections dialogs. 
- manage your icons collections and importing a new icon collection from zip archive (Pro mode required).
- select images from different Android galleries and rich crop functionality for create new icon from the selected image.
- parse themes for some popular Launchers and provide ability to use theirs icons (Pro mode required) and wallpapers.
- app has not write access to internal storage and sdcard and works only in its private area.
- support tablet devices.

Currently the app allows you buy Pro mode only. This mode provides following benefits:
- Import icons to the icon gallery.
- Use icons from themes.
- Add sub-collections in Collection database.
- Export shortcuts from Collection database (but import is free). 
- Removing any ad (if it will be added in the future) and other annoying dialogs.

Required permissions:
- Read your content on SDCard is required for select some local file which will be used as target for a shortcut. 
- Read your contacts is required for selecting some contact which will be used as target for a shortcut.
- Install shortcuts is required for core functionality. 
- Internet access is required only for advertising and is not used in other parts of the app.

On Android 6.0 there is a system ability to block access to your local file system and contacts – the app takes this into account and handle all cases correctly.

    Loved this app ❤️. I often use this app to manage my apps , to open directly a specified folder in my sd card , to open some activities that a normal user can't , to quickly switch to volte . It helps to tweak performance of my phone by using battery and performance activity in settings app. An Awesome Must Have app. Saves a lot of time.

  2. guest-avatar

    This program is great I really thank you, but its kinda limited or basic so I wonder if there is something like a setting picker so i can pick any settings options and put them on home screen without suffering searching on it . It will really save a huge time and also will help you out growing your project and getting known much more <3

  3. guest-avatar

    Used to make shortcut to from home screen to play specific mp3 file (works for other files, too). I was even able to use my own image/photo for the icon (great for accessibility for someone who can't read, as they can just tap the pic). When tapped, it asks which app to use to open the file, or you can set a default (ideally, I wish Google play was one of my 3 options shown to open mp3 file, but the others work fine and it's a very minor detail, especially for a free app). Great app overall! :)

  4. guest-avatar

    Installed to fast launch specific music from my homscreen, downloaded it, and it's already done in 20 seconds, no bug, no strange access ask, no lag on the play, had what I came for, thanks.

  5. guest-avatar

    I was looking for an app that would allow me to create a shortcut for a file folder on the home screen. After trying several other apps, this one does exactly what I was looking for. my only complaint is when I go back from the open file that it does not return to the list displayed by the app. Instead it exits the app entirely. If that's law gets fixed, then I will be happy to give this five stars.

  6. guest-avatar

    This app is the best Pinner hands down. You can pin photos, PDF files, short cuts to folders. You can even select the associated app to use. This is super easy to use and the links continue to work. Highly recommend this app for easy access to all your short cut needs. Allowed me to delete other apps that pin different file types.

  7. guest-avatar

    Very simple, very useful app. Create shortcuts straight to pdf files from phone or tablet home screen. Just a quick few taps and it's all setup. Help prompt should you get stuck but once you've created one or two it's so simple. Folders, files etc just one tap away. No more hunting in files or folders.

  8. guest-avatar

    Sorry I take my words back, as i didn' thad followed the instruction video, this app did exactly whatI wanted, BEST APP EVER, THANKS FOR CREATING THIS APP AND MOST THOUGHTFUL AS THE APP CONTAINS THE INSTRUCTION VIDEO AND NOT JUST TEXT WITH BULLET POINTS MISTAKEN REVIEW -->(It's works but shows a little app's icon in the corner that's looks disgusting)

  9. guest-avatar

    I couldn't figure out how to create a "clean" shortcut even after watching the video. There are options in the video that my version of the app doesn't have. It was a frustrating experience. Edit: You have to select "Smart Shortcut" for application shortcuts when following the video which isn't shown or explained.

    Not working as it used to. Every time I create a shortcut it just says on my home screen Create Shortcut with the default logo. Fix the app then I will rate 5 stars but for now its 3 stars

  11. guest-avatar

    It was good. I had alittle trouble understanding how to use it but I figured it out after a few minutes. And I wish I got get rid of the little symbol in the corner but besides that it's great.

    As a former galaxy note 5 owner i cannot say enough about com.alextern.shortcuthelper. This app literally allowed me to hang on to my device until i decided to upgrade and not my manufacturer. Im now a note 10 owner and i use it just as much if not more. Thanks for making my lifer a little easier 🙂

    This is the most incomprehensible, confused UI I've seen since the Android 2 days. I'm sure the tech fundamentals are fine, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to use them, and none of the copious help popups seem to help. If you find yourself embedding how to videos in your UI itself explaining how to use it (which, by the way, I couldn't get back to after selecting anything else), that is a sign that your UI is way too hard to use. Please hire a designer or something.

  37. guest-avatar

    This app is very useful. Why? Because it lets you create personalized launchers (shortcuts) of files, apps, folders, etc. For example, instead of browsing in a file manager to open a file, just create a launcher for it in your home screen AND choose what app will open the file AND customize the icon, etc. And many more features. Works well and really is a friendly app!

  38. guest-avatar

    Makes for a band-aid free experience when you want to find and open hidden system menus. But wait, there's more! You can create shortcuts to anything you can think of, and organize them by category. Your days of scrolling through a chaotic list of shortcuts are gone. Love this app!

  39. guest-avatar

    World great on Android 10. I paid for the Pro version. Is it possible to remove the Shortcut Creator badge from icons that I add to my home screen?

    Horrendous complicated. Think ease of use.

  41. guest-avatar

    Great app, i downloaded many apps but this one is really helpful it has many things, we can use it for any shortcut that we want from anywhere, loved it.

  42. guest-avatar

    I wanted to rename shortcuts I had created, pointing to file and folder locations, both in Internal memory and my SD card on a Galaxy S9. This app did it simply and easily, and is also more directthan ESFile Explorer for creating the shortcuts to these locations. I look forward to exploring it's other features, but have not done so at this point.

  43. guest-avatar

    Useful app. Fulfilled my needs.

  44. guest-avatar

    why? why? why? this app is the MOST confusing app ever. i open it thinking it is great and all i see is this that this that. so many buttons to click. WAYYYYY to confusing. i couldn't do anything it was SOOOO laggy. do NOT get this app it is really bad. way to confusing. no. don't. press. the. install. button . . . . . you replied. HOW DO YOU DO STUFF TEACH ME???? let me try again

  45. guest-avatar

    This app would be perfect but in the corner it shows this apps logo

  46. guest-avatar

    The only thing I wanted this app to do was to give me a shortcut to Bluetooth settings, because I'm tired of multiple clicks simply to connect to different devices. It created a shortcut, but clicking it did absolutely nothing. Uninstallimg.

  47. guest-avatar

    Georgina-Mae Bell


    I downloaded this app to organise all of my apps, and it worked pretty well. However, every time I recreated an app logo, in the corner of the app it had the ’shortcut' logo. This did annoy me but the app still works well.

  48. guest-avatar

    Dino Castellani


    I absolutely dread having to dig through my settings menus to look for something that I use often. I tried many different kinds of short cut creators but found they were all too complicated to set up. However this app is simple user-friendly and intuitive and its approach and I use it a lot. Thank you to the developer for building this application with such care and craftsmanship.

  49. guest-avatar

    I love this app I can access activities and apps I otherwise couldn't

  50. guest-avatar

    Just the kind app I was looking for with these features. This app has made it so much easier using my device/phone daily. All I have to do 98% of the time is just to click a icon I can easily instantly access a certain feature or setting quickly on my phone. No tedious stuff clicking after clicking through screens. This app made it so simple for me. I have one for my apps, wifi, battery, storage settings and many others. Great job on this one developer.

  51. guest-avatar

    William Cartwright


    This application is really helpful and efficiently helps me navigate my very much so overly-cluttered phone. I discover and rate new applications and weed out the best ones for the needs of multiple people. The developer clearly states you must have a promo code to unlock the pro version, but you can still simply download the application to try it. I am not one who has problems buying my applications I like it's features, but I have purchased some disappointing ones. This is NOT one I regret. 👍

  52. guest-avatar

    Thanks for this App, it solved my problem switching between multiple launchers with one click. This App offers far more than I imagined. After a few days I noticed that I can no longer copy any files to my ext SD card. Once I deleted your App, the problem went away. Am I the first person to complain about this?

  53. guest-avatar

    Love the huge customization! There are some apps I love/use a lot but the icon is super annoying. With this app, I can replace the default icon w/any image I want or one of the icons it provides. I also use it to create home screen shortcuts for Play Store apps via share. (Apps I don't want to install that moment but want a reminder to revisit later.) Make sure to select "Open With...Play Store" & edit the title so the shortcut will show the app name instead of "Check out...".

  54. guest-avatar

    Prathyusha Vepakomma


    I created some app shortcuts using the widget. Now I want to customize the icons differently. When I try to delete and recreate the shortcuts, it says shortcut already created. But I simply can't find the old shortcuts anywhere on my screen, neither can I create new ones. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but I get the same message again. Please help me resolve this issue! If this issue is resolved, I would give it 5 stars because it is probably the best on Play Store.

  55. guest-avatar

    This very useful app is what you need if you cannot create shortcuts to those annoying documents you have to keep opening or a photo deep in the phone somewhere. What I would suggest is that a "right click option" should be put in when you hold on the screen, so you can quickly open a file or get info on a file. Overall good app and lots of customisations.

  56. guest-avatar

    Trial length is one week, but offers free promo-code for pro version if you give positive review. App links to developer's blog explaining that "to obtain the promo-code, describe why you like the app and how you use it; any words to interest other people." Shady Practice. Update: Dev tried to claim "I didn't say it had to be a positive review", like "describe why you like it" could be taken any other way lol

  57. guest-avatar

    James Daugherty


    This app is absolutely amazing. Saves your valuable time by allowing you to create shortcuts of any app you possess (Certain apps require Root, which cannot be helped.) And lets you see what activity each app can open and also allows you to run the activity if you want. If you're not rating 5 stars you don't know how to use the app or something.

  58. guest-avatar

    Update: Thanks to Alex, a really responsive developer, I found the solution to how to make this work. I need to create the shortcut (via "share" from within Chrome), and then recreate it by adding a "Create Shortcut" widget and using "History" to reselect the shortcut. This makes an app-independent shortcut that persists. Thank you Alex!

  59. guest-avatar

    Abdullah Shaker


    You can create shortcut of *any files or apps* to your homescreen.

  60. guest-avatar

    Is it possible to sideload the pro version from anywhere to avoid payment? *EDIT (to dev response): okay, thanks for the advice. Also, why are there no ads? I like apps that ruin the experience with lots of ads, but this app doesn't have any. If I get the pro version I hope there's ads to watch every time I click something. Will there be Coco Pops ads?

  61. guest-avatar



    This app creates shortcuts on your mains screen like: files & folders, application, settings, contact, command executor, message templates. It also can manage the collections ( for a better organization of your shortcuts), the history (+ external shortcuts). So if you need a file under your eyes, this is the app that make all this possible. Thanks to developers, you do a good job!

  62. guest-avatar

    Ronen Ben-Naftali


    This app has great potential, but it is not mature yet. Many things / features I've seen in other apps are missing here. Besides, it seems like there are still fundamental bugs need to be addressed. Hope to see improvements, and then I will gladly pay for the Pro version. (I will send you privately, as you requested, and thanks for replying).

  63. guest-avatar

    I was asked by the app to provide a rating but in this case I actually do like the app. The layout might be confusing a little for someone new to Android but all in all, it does everything it says it does; gives access to all the hidden features and menus of everything on the device. Great work.

  64. guest-avatar

    Worked great only thing that bothered me was the shortcut creator logo that shows up in the bottom right corner of your custom app image while its on your home screen.

  65. guest-avatar

    Amybeth KJ Leek


    This app DOES work great!! You just have to go in your settings to whichever *·ICON·app·* you are using PERMISSION: Storage On MODIFY SYSTEM SETTINGS: "Allowed" (necessary to modify) then you can still be using your pre-installed launcher and replace any app icon you place on your home screen if you install from the widget menu. It also works as the 'Label Icon' for each WAY- COOLER- AND- MORE- CREATIVE- THAN- ANY- FOLDER you create with my oldie but all time favorite widget CIRCLE LAUNCHER

  66. guest-avatar

    Works well and as expected. Lots of customization and even activity shortcut options. However as far as I can tell there is no way to resize the shortcut created to be larger which unfortunately is what I'm looking for. Need to make it larger for my kids to know what they are clicking on and how to differentiate videos/music from app icons.

  67. guest-avatar

    This GREAT App allows me to create any type of shortcuts for about any action you can think of, even execute commands. This comes in very handy to overcome app and system limitations. Therefore, you can extend the use and management of your phone and customize it to your needs. I use also to create system shortcuts that are deeply hidden in the system and this app saves me from searching and digging inside the system settings. Definitely buying PRO!

    This app does an outstanding job of providing shortcuts to "things" on your phone. I use it for many things. Quickly accessing system settings is my favorite. Quickly accessing folders on my sdcard is another. The options available in Shortcut Creator allow me to go to a file and open it with a program of my choice. I have found it very easy to use and very stable.

  69. guest-avatar

    The perfect app that makes using my Pixel 3 XL much easy. I recently bought the Pixel 3 XL. I did not like the way the volume keys default to turning the media up/down, unlike other phones that turn the volume up/down. Since I couldn't change the default Pixel 3 XL volume keys to actually turn the Volume up/down. I looked and found "SHORTCUT CREATOR". I use this app to create a shortcut that links the master ringtone volume... with one click, I can now mute and unmute the ringtone. love it!

    Michael Convertino


    Great app. A little tricky to use but provides access to all the hidden apps and menus with some nice features the other shortcut maker apps don't have.

  71. guest-avatar

    awesome app. you can customize single app icons and make short cut with system settings, change the apps name. and the fact you can download other custom icons app from play store is a plus. I am dissapointed you can't customize app in app drawer. and maybe more ways to custom the size and color of the custom icon your creating. but other than that great app, a keeper.

  72. guest-avatar

    Chelsea Morales


    It shows a icon it the right corner but other than that its good

  73. guest-avatar

    Fantastic app. I now have a very slick looking home screen without the labels attached to the icons. Only appears to be one downside. Some apps such as my email app use to display a small badge showing the number of new emails. This no longer happens. Is there anyway to reactivate this. (I'm using Pie on S9) Thanks 😀

  74. guest-avatar

    After reading through articles and trying different file managers, all in order to put a shortcut on my homescreen..should be simple task right!?...almost gave up in frustration. Then discovered this wonderful app which did the job with just a few taps. Hats off to the developer!

  75. guest-avatar

    This app is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Super easy to use, no pop-up ads, provides access to alll these Settings your phone Doesn't let you navigate to, create shortcuts to (immediately open) your Hotspot, WiFi Direct, Account settings, and my personal favorite: to Force Close an app! I tried several other Shortcut apps - This is BY FAR the best.

  76. guest-avatar

    In use for a few years, spanning several Android devices. It has been reliable, with the features I need most: user's choice of icon for a shortcut, and user specifies which app will open the shortcut. My one wish would be a spiffier UI (it's a bit homely), especially a dark theme please.

  77. guest-avatar

    This is a great app to use for creating shortcuts to some commonly used features that otherwise take too much time to locate when u need them. I often need to switch SD cards to get video from my dashcam so I have to go through settings to unmount a card first. Now with a shortcut on my home screen, I can quickly Tap and Unmount. Definitely has potential to make using yout device easier depending on your needs

  78. guest-avatar

    James Robiony-Rogers


    Overall seems like a great app, however, one issue I have is when I'm creating an app shortcut (only thing I use the app for at the moment) the image used is noticeable blurrier than that of the actual app, even when I provide an HD image of my own. Is there any way of making the shortcuts image sharper?

  79. guest-avatar

    Best for making shortcuts from youtube app and more.. really easy. Just share anything to the app and you r gud to go..! Also, can add any shortcut image is just awesome..!! Thank you guys..

  80. guest-avatar

    This is literally the first only shortcut maker that works on modern android versions. I wish the developer would make a version of this app with a fully transparent icon so that the shortcut icon wouldnt have a badge. that would be especially nice, now that Google has dropped support for changing the launcher.

  81. guest-avatar

    It works well when I click check the smart shortcut , but I still have problem, every shortcut had a little logo displayed under my shortcut icon, can you please suggest me and otherwise its 5 star. Yes Alex thanks for the reply and one more request, please develop and show the long press informations on the icon, I hope that you will find out that commands.

  82. guest-avatar

    I love this app. Creates fully customisable shortcuts for, files, folders and apps. Saves history so easy to reinstate deleted shortcuts. Allows user to specify which app opens the file in a shortcut. If there was a pro version at a reasonable price on Playstore, I'd purchase it to support the developer.

  83. guest-avatar

    Created shortcuts to Notification Access and Bluetooth lickety-split with ease. Allowed external gallery icon although not all galleries found. Small Shortcut Creator icon automatically created in the right bottom corner of any shortcut icon in Oreo (8.1) is annoying. Too bad it can't be eliminated. Still very handy overall.

  84. guest-avatar

    How this App is able to create granular shortcuts for the sub-menus of "Settings" in Oreo is amazing: indeed it also creates these for Folders and Apps as well. Very robust and well-done. Kudos, Alex There is apparently no purchase option but I'll be happy to send over a cup of coffee if an option allowed that :)

  85. guest-avatar

    Love love love how involved this app is, you can be super specific about what you assign, where you assign it, rename etc. A must have if you're the kind of person who has to click about 7 times to open a file you frequently look at - a nuisance no more. Thank you for making this 👍

  86. guest-avatar

    It's a cool app, very easy and powerful shortcut creator but all the shortcuts will be app dependent even the ones to activities in the other apps, anyway is a very good app, but for that dependency only 3*. EDIT: dev "...add shortcuts from widgets..." Thanks that works perfectly! I have to add that the 1st time I didn't read all the description (my bad) I should say this is probably the best app for what I was looking for. Thanks.

  87. guest-avatar

    works well but i don't get the Transmutation thing. it's not in the app menu or in the pic of the app menu that's on Google Play, but it IS on the menu in the YouTube help video. Also the Google Play app description of the Transmutation function is unclear. Running Oreo on Note 9.

  88. guest-avatar

    This is a very easy app to use. Way better than others I've seen. The only problem I have is when adding an external image for the icon, I dont see a way to adjust the size of the image to fit in the icon window, thereby cutting off portions of an image.

  89. guest-avatar

    This is a great shortcut maker. It keeps up with OS updates, and that's a big plus for me.

    Do you have an Android phone? Do you wonder why there is now a little sub icon on all customize icons that weren't there before? I hated that. It turns out that that's a feature from Android, with the new updates. I wondered what could be done and after scouring for solution and found this and it is awesome! And free! Now you can customize your apps just like before Android's oreo update.

    Dear Alex, Your suggested workaround, "shortcut through widget" thankfully allows (through Smart Shortcut) customised icon without that ANNOYING small Shortcut Creator icon at the right bottom corner of any shortcut icon. However we still wish you soon find a regular fix to allow customized icon without the aforesaid annoyance.

    Love this app I enjoy being able to create shortcuts for normally unattainable apps. A primary concern of mine however is that this app seems to cause the battery to drain a bit quicker than normal when using widgets. Other than that this app is amazing.

    Perfect. I had to go through the trouble of going Settings > Device Maintenence > Storage > Storage Settings just to unmount the USB OTG safely. I don't know why notification unmount doesn't show any more. But this makes it easily making a launcher to Storage Settings on Home screen. Thanks.

    Maybe I didn't know how to use it, but tried it again and got it doing what I need, but it could use a tutorial because some things it can do might be questionable to the device. But a tutorial would increase it's magical abilities.

    Works great not only on common apps but also for system apps commonly used for tweaking Android. Minor downside on actual app layout, a novice would find it hard to navigate around it but this is a fully-working simple-enough tool for intermediate EUs.

    In my LG settings there is a smart cleaner function that I wished to have a shortcut to. This app allowed me to place a shorcut directly to that system app on my homescreen without having to dig through the menu. It looks like there is quite a bit more functionality as well that I have yet to discover.

    I am very impressed with this on my Samsung S10+. It didn't work at first but then there's an option to make 'Smart Shortcut' and it then works. Just drag the shortcut icon down below on the Shortcut creator app to your home screen. DONE. Fantastic!

    Tried to make some shortcuts, but everytime I tried to add it to my launcher it turned into just the app icon. On top of that it would just lead to the app itself. Didn't do it's job
