Just found what I think is a good deal and potentially quite a bit of fun to be had with my phone. Was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with one of these and if they will work with our nexus 4's.

The one I have ordered is from DX.com for £2.35

I've got one, works great. I'm using my nexus with Reath hybrid case, fits perfect.

Well I've got the Ringke Fusion case so hopefully it'll fit nicely too, just hope the postage from China to the UK doesn't take forever.

I was almost drawn in by pressy, which I assume this is aping. But the placement didn't work for what I wanted. I came from a tilting sliding qwerty, that when open and held in portrait, closely resembled a book and was very comfortable to turn ebook pages with (my thumb hovered right over the keyboard's arrow keys with no reaching necessary). QWERTYs are endangered these days, and tilting QWERTYs even moreso.

For anyone else looking for an alternate 'extra button' solution, check out Dimple on indiegogo. NFC buttons that can be placed nearly anywhere on the back of most phones and can be programmed pretty broadly. Not very cheap ($27 for 4 buttons $17 2 buttons), but very handy looking.
