Buttons remapper – Allows setting custom actions for hardware buttons

[App] Buttons remapper

Buttons remapperButtons remapper allows setting custom actions for hardware buttons on your Android device without Root.


Swap or remap buttons
Enable a flashlight via press on a key
Set additional actions for a short or a long press
Open browser, dialer or camera apps on a hardware button click
Open any application by press on a key
Disable a button completely
Supported remapping of HOME, BACK, RECENT APPS, CAMERA and VOLUME keys + over 200 other keys
Support of double/triple click and two buttons combinations in the Premium version
Last App feature similar to Android N (Premium)
Ability to terminate current app (Root only)

This application will work only with hardware (including capacitive) buttons and it WILL NOT work with on-screen soft buttons.

On some devices hardware buttons are not comfortable to use in case of their unusual arrangement. If your device is one of them try this application and re-assign hardware keys. The app has been tested on Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Tablets.

Root-permissions are not required for the majority of functions. However, some actions require Root (Menu, Search, Block, Terminate app, Change language).

The behavior of remapping is device specific and some of keys may not work on some models. For example, Power button does not work on the majority of devices.

Please, be careful with remapping a HOME button action.

This app uses Accessibility services. It designed to help drivers, users with disabilities and anyone who can find it useful, to access apps faster and replace different actions with just one click on the button. The app uses only the following features of Android Accessibility service:
Filter key events to get access to the key event of the device and to remap it to any other action;
Track “window changed” event to get the package name of the running app when the action Last app is assigned to any button, to help user get back to the previous app.

The key events actions are not saved on the persistent storage and are not being send outside the device. The same goes for a last opened package of the app. Events are saving in RAM to process combinations and the Last app action only.

Buttons remapper user reviews :

Does not work on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition due to incompatibility. When I try to turn on Accessibility access for this app, nothing happens. Its stuck on the permissions prompt and you can’t press ‘OK’. My only option is to ‘Cancel’, therefore I can’t use this app. Please fix this ASAP. Thank You.

  • It seems like you already has an enabled accessibility service which is not compatible with ours
Awesome app and does what it says, I setup a hold back button for power menu and hold home to start my screen recorder, the app visually looks nice and clean and plenty of button customisation… Unfortunately there’s is a couple of small issues/bugs I have found 1. The toggle to enable a notification sometimes disabled or enables itself 2. The option to hide the app icon and then press back 10 times to re show app icon doesn’t work correctly sometimes… Sometimes I only need to press 3-4 times and the app icon is back.

  • Jason, thank you for the detailed feedback! We will take a look on those issues

Awesome and works but I just wish the long press home button could override system so I could remap it to Google Assistant without my recent tabs showing up. (For recent apps I use the menu key). This app is really good I switched from. Another app to this because this is the best app for remapping hardware keys.
