========NOTE TO SAMSUNG USERS===========

===================================

Ever since my first release of Button Savior to Playstore, I can get almost 1-5 mails everyday from users questioning me why it doesn't work on their devices simply because they don't know what 'Root' is. Able to run Button Savior without root has then always been my first priority to do. Good news is since the introduction of Android 4.1, there is new APIs that allow me to develop Button Savior to run on regular, unroot, devices. So finally I can make a version for everyone who are not tech savvy. NOTE: For those who are already using Button Savior (root) on 4.1 and newer, you can install this version and uninstall the original one.

Button Savior is an Android system keys simulation app that allows user to mimic action of Back, Home, and Recent Task keys on screen. If you have a phone with broken hardware button, or you simply just want to get rid of the bottom system Bar to unleash more screen estate, Button Savior is for you to do that.

Button Savior (Non Root) is based on existing code of Button Savior (Root). So all themes and features are kept in this version too minus support of Search and Menu keys because they are not necessary in 4.1.

[Features in this version 2]
☆ (NEW) PopControl that allows you to add favourite action and use instantly.
☆ (NEW) Hover control supported for automatic Software Button visibility control with mouse or Samsung S-Pen
☆ (NEW) Free floatable trigger icon
☆ (NEW) Swipe to show Button Savior panel from both sides
☆ Simulates 'Home' 'Back' 'Recent Task' 'Screen Off' 'Volume' 'Camera' and 'Call' buttons
☆ Can set to always open or auto hide based on user customizable timer
☆ Two types of trigger action to choose from (Gesture trigger and Click trigger)
☆ Added Camera key and Call key simulation
☆ Customizable trigger position
☆ Also provides themese to support e-ink display
☆ Can change it to one click mode for super fast button action in option
☆ Can create shortcut action such as call someone or go to bookmark on Call or Camera keys. (With PRO)

Thx Dev. I used your Button Savior before. But after I upgraded my phone to HTC OneX, I could't find a way to root it and was eventually getting tired of trying. Now finally found your non root version again. Thanks! I miss this feature on my phone a lot.

Re: [APP 4.1+] on screen software keys simulation without root (Button Savior)
This app is not working on my s3. It says accessibility is not enabled even though I enabled it.

Hi,
Did you toggle the switch to ON position? I developed this on my Nexus 7. So not sure how it looks like on G3. But I tried it on Galaxy Nexus. The position of toggle switch is not obvious. It is at top right corner when you select Button Savior in accessibility as illustrated in one of the pic in instruction.

On press of ant function it says that the desired function cannot be performed as it is not enabled in accessibility

I do notice one thing but not a big deal. Everytime I reboot my phone, I need to reactivate the setting again.
