Can I get Unity-style Super+[1-9] keyboard shortcuts for launching apps in Gnome Shell?

I've just installed Gnome Shell instead of Unity, and so far I like it more. However, there's something from Unity that Gnome Shell is lacking, and that's the ability to launch the shortcuts from the dash using Super + n, where n = 1,2,3...

Is there a way of configuring it so it works the same way?

In short, no. Gnome Shell doesn't work that way. The favorites in shell aren't expected to be visible all the time like on Unity, so shortcuts of this kind would make less sense, but you could achieve something similar with a little work by setting up custom commands in Keyboard settings. You can then bind launching of commands to keyboard shortcuts. –  user1477 Oct 18 '11 at 16:59
