    How to have a shortcut bar with only one shortcut in symbian 3 phones?

    The shortcut widget for having shortcuts for apps in the symbian 3 or symbian Anna platform is made for having four shortcuts and nothing less. If at all, one doesn't assign a shortcut to it, still there's an icon that is shown as default when nothing
    is assigned. Here's what you do...

    1. Download the app called vacuum.sis from the web. Try this link...

    www.mediafire.com/?a01dw4w4azasjmn

    2. Install the app anywhere in your phone, phone memory, mass memory or memory card.

    3. Now go to homescreen and press and hold to go into edit mode.

    4. Tap the desired location for adding the shortcut bar and select it from the list of widgets available.

    5. Once the shortcut bar is added, tap it and go into the settings for adding the shortcuts to it.

    6. Now if you want to add only one app in the shortcut bar, select the desired location from one to four and add the app. In the rest of the locations, add the vacuum app.

    7. Now close the shortcut and return to home screen. You should see only one shortcut in the shortcut bar. This way you can place any one app at any location on the grid with the help of vacuum app.

    What's actually vacuum app? Its a dummy app which when installed, results in an app which doesn't do anything on installation and has a transparent icon. So an unknowing tap on the shortcut also will do nothing. Tada! You've a shortcut bar with just one app...
    Its customizable between one and four apps. This has been tested and works in my Nokia C7 with Anna. So should work in other symbian 3 phones as well.
