Description

Button Mapper makes it easy to map custom actions to your volume buttons or other buttons on your phone. Remap buttons to launch any app, shortcut or custom action

Assign custom actions to single presses, double taps and long presses of your phone's hardware buttons. Root is not required

Button Mapper can remap physical or capacitive keys and buttons, such as volume buttons, the home button on Samsung Galaxy devices, the camera button on Sony devices, and the capacitive home, back and recent apps keys found on many devices by ASUS, HTC, OnePlus, Xiaomi and other manufacturers

Button Mapper does not work when the screen is off, except for volume keys if your device is rooted

This app uses Accessibility services. Accessibility is used to detect when the physical or capacitive buttons are pressed on your device so they can be remapped to custom actions to accommodate your needs. It is not used to see what you type. Button Mapper does not collect or share any of your personal information

This app uses the Device Administrator permission. (BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN)
This permission is used to lock the screen if the "Turn screen off" action is chosen. If you want to remove this permission, open Button Mapper, click on the menu (three dots in the upper right corner) and select "Uninstall"

A few examples of keymapping you can do with Button Mapper:
-long press volume down to toggle your flashlight
-double tap your home button to launch your favorite app or shortcut
-long press your home button to turn off the screen
-double click the back button to open your notifications
-swap your back and recent apps keys
-use your volume buttons to adjust screen brightness
-long press home to toggle "do not disturb" mode
-press and hold the home button to quickly check your lockscreen messages, release to turn off the screen instantly
-and much more, the possibilities are endless

Additional features unlocked in the pro version:
-support for back button, recent apps button and camera button
-Swap volume keys on orientation change
-Default to media volume
-Homescreen lock
-Themes
-Customization of haptic feedback (vibration) on button press and long press

Actions that can be mapped to buttons or keys:
-Launch any app or shortcut
-Disable the button
-Home, back or recent apps
-Tasker intents (execute any task in Tasker)
-Turn screen off
-Toggle flashlight
-Quick settings
-Show notifications
-Power dialog
-Take screenshot
-Music: previous/next track and play/pause
-Adjust volume
-mute
-Toggle do not disturb
-Adjust brightness
-Now on tap (requires root)
-Menu button (requires root)
-Toggle WiFi
-Toggle orientation mode

Buttons supported:
-Home
-Back (PRO version only)
-Recent apps or Menu (PRO version only)
-Volume up
-Volume down
-Active edge on Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL
-Bixby button on Samsung S8/S8+
-Camera button (PRO version only)
-Headsethook button
-Custom buttons: add other buttons (active, mute, etc) on your phone, headphones, even gamepads

Additional options:
-change the long press or double tap duration
-delay initial button press for better double tap operation
-disable Button Mapper while using specific apps

Troubleshooting:
-For Bixby on unrooted devices, make sure you don't disable Bixby Voice
-Make sure Button Mapper is exempt from any kind of battery optimization, task killers or other things that may interfere
-Button Mapper does not work with onscreen buttons (such as soft keys or the navigation bar) or the power button.
-Button Mapper does not work while the screen is off, except for the volume buttons if your device is rooted.
-The options shown in the app depend on the buttons available on your phone. Not all phones have home, back and recents buttons!

It says "button mapper has to be restarted. It is recommended to open bixby l, go into settings and disable the bixby key." I have disabled the button, selected "no action". But your app has me caught in this loop of restarting the app... Full Review

I use this to have a quick pause-play button (volume down double press) and to turn on the flashlight (volume up double press). Note that it only works when the screen is lit, so I hit the power button first. Very handy on my Pixel XL. Full Review

Looks good, but does not work on s8 oreo. Keeps saying it needs to be restarted. (if you fix this and reply I'll update the review) (Also, I accidentally closed the hint that you need to open accessibility services and grant access. And the hint did not come back, I cleared data to find out what I needed to do) Full Review

I install the app to configure a remote Bluetooth controller (2 buttons) one was already managed to device volume. (mi5) the mapping works fine but every few hours my navigation and home buttons are not working and only a reboot fix it. After I remove the app all is good. I would give 5 if there is a solution. Thanks Edit: Developer answer on how to fix the above problem. Full Review

Holy battery suck. Used 50% of my CPU all day, and I have some intensive apps, like Tasker, that run lots. All I want is consistency between devices, but I gotta be able to use the devices. I'll try tweaking some stuff, but I'm thinking there's a memory leak that's going to force me to uninstall. Full Review

Disappointed it doesnt have profiles. Some times you want different preset saved setting for different occasions. Also my fault for not reading the description but i thought the paid version would allow you to use it while the screen is off it still doesn't. Full Review

Every once in a whole service commits suicide repeating last button press indefinitely. This could be volume up or down. Seems to trigger often whenever same button is pressed rapidly. No greenify, no battery optimization, no task manager. Full Review

Finally a solution to the lousy Bixby app by making the Bixby button useful. Does way more than I thought possible. I was impatient when I first installed and I didnt pay attention to the instructions. Works well when you follow the instructions. Full Review

This app is very well designed and works great! I removed one star because the "Default to media volume" setting overrides cast volume when casting something to a chromecast etc. That is frustrating. Change that and 5 stars! I've already recommended this app to several friends. Well done! Update: while the casting issue is still not fixed, I am changing my review to 5 stars because the app is very well made. I do think it would be good to make the new feature where is continues decreasing volume on hold of key to work for more than a few tick. I.e. Hold the volume button down and the volume will go from full to 0. I also wish the app didn't cause the volume mixer to appear when I try to take a screen shot by pressing power and home. If those three things were changed the app would be perfect. Full Review

One of the most useful app i ever had. But one cons. If you set button to lock the screen, it wont be able to be unlocked with fingerprint, it will ask for pattern. Hope you can fix this issue.. Full Review

Edit: The problem was using the Dutch language. Switching to en_US fixed it. Thanks! Unfortunately the Active Edge squeeze functionality does not seem to work, on my rooted Pixel 2 XL running the latest (January 2018) 8.1 update. Any tips on how I can make it function properly? I want to use it to turn the flashlight on with the screen off. Could using EX kernel be the cause? Full Review

Would have loved to give it 5 stars but the bypass app function isn't working properly. It would stop the button mapping for a second or two but then imidiately start again. This is a nuisance because when I get a whatapps call, I can't adjust the in call volume or mute the incoming call ringtone. I would highly appreciate it if you could either advise a workaround or fix this issue. Full Review

This thing works great on my Zenpad 10. I don't like the capacitive buttons since i always hit them by accident if i rotate. I set them up to work with long press and it is much better. Seems very solid. Full Review

Takes some digging to figure out how to use Adb commands but once that is set up this works flawlessly everytime. It's like the Bixby button was made for the actions I set it to. I also use it to activate Google Assistant by pushing the previous track button twice on my steering wheel. Take that Toyota and your damn Entune sillyness. Full Review

pixel2xl.This phone can't use active edge when system language is Chinese.When switching languages to English (us), Active edge works and can be remapd but still wakes Google assist.But the video"Remapping Google Pixel 2's Active Edge/Squeeze Function" on YouTube show Google assist did't be wake up???I've followed the steps of"How to Remap Squeeze/Active Edge Feature on the Google Pixel 2"on XDA, what's wrong? Looks like it happens only when remapping Active edges to screenshot Full Review

Complete waste of money for the average user. To understand the instructions to remap the Bixby button one really needs to know how to install Android Debug Bridge and execute linux/Unix shell commands. Full Review
