INTRODUCING FLOATING SOFT KEYS
* Requires Root
Floating Soft Keys is a simple app to avail you soft key functionality even in exanded desktop mode or if you don't want to wear out your hard buttons.
Floating Soft Keys makes use of Mark Wei's brilliant StandOut Library
so if you like this app, please go and thank him in his thread if you haven't already.
FSK requires root to emulate input key events.
FSK is still in its initial phases so it might give some errors or cause some crashes. Please report to me and give logcat if possible. Also tell me your Android version. This will help make the app better.
MAKING THEMES FOR FSK v1.2+
For FSK v1.2+, custom icon support has been added. To make your own custom icon theme, simply do the following:
1. Make 4 PNG images for the 4 buttons having square dimensions (default is 130x130)
2. The PNGs should be named as follows (without the quotes):
"back.png" (for back key)
"home.png" (for home key)
"menu.png" (for menu key)
"drag.png" (for the dragging button)
NOTE: Names are case sensitive.
2. Put all these PNGs in one folder. Give the theme name to the folder (e.g. "Holo Keys" or "Black Keys" or "Alicia Keys")
3. Put this folder in the Floating Soft Keys folder found in your SD card (it will appear automatically after running the v1.2 app at least once)
Themes thus created can be used in the v1.2 app by selecting "Use custom icon". You will be prompted to select the icon.
If you would like to share your themes, post em in the thread or PM me. Due credit will be given.
As an example, attached below is a theme called "Bluish tint". You can download it, unzip it and place the "Bluish tint" folder (which is present inside the zip) in your Floating Soft Keys folder on your sdcard. Then you can use it as a theme by selecting "Use Custom Icons" in the app.
Here I will post links to various themes created by you folks.

As of version 1.4.0, new icons were made default to suit the Holo theme. But if you liked the old icons better, you can still download em from this thread. The zip file has been attached.
