Hello XDA community!
This is my newest (and smallest) App, at 75.4 KB, Volume Scroll lets you scroll through pages on almost any App using your Volume Rocker. And yes, you read the title of the thread right, it requires NO root permission.
Once activated, scroll a tiny bit of the content you want to be scrolled using Volume Rocker. Pressing either of the volume keys will make a paginated scrolling (jumps to new content, flips a page - however you may like to understand.)
This will feel very natural and immersive, especially when you want to consume a really long article on Google Chrome or an endless feed of Facebook, Instagram and many more applications.
What happens to adjusting volume? Well, a long press on either of the Volume keys will activate the default behavior (bringing volume control panel on screen.) Neat?
In addition to scrolling through Volume Rocker, there is an optional onscreen buttons as well. The onscreen buttons will appear when there is a scrollable content available on screen, and if no action is taken on the button, they fade within 2 seconds - and appear back, if you manually scroll some content.
So far, the App works on all popular chatting Apps, Social Media Apps, GMail, Google Chrome, etc. However, don't be surprised if it doesn't work on your pdfs or some 3rd party browsers - that will be due to technical limitation.
Below is a demo of the onscreen buttons, if somebody can make a short demo video of the Volume Rockers in action, it would be great! Also note that, the below demo features auto scrolling which is NOT included in this initial alpha version.
The Alpha_1 version is available at the attachments, Play Store and XDA Labs. This version of the App is Ad-free, there will be a lot of more features in future depending on how the App is received, like:
✓ Auto Scrolling pages with onscreen buttons as well as Volume Rocker
✓ Configure time gap for auto scrolling.
✓ Ability to move around onscreen buttons
✓ Configure how you want Volume Rocker to behave - Single press, long press, double press.
✓ Blacklist/Whitelist Apps on which the App should function.
Mention which feature you look forward to, in your review of the App.

The main purpose of this early release to the community members here is to get some feedback. So, if you try the App, please do let me know your experience, suggestions. Cheers!
Note: The App uses Accessibility permissions - that are an absolute requirement for the magical linking between your Volume Rocker and scrolling. If you don't feel comfortable with the permissions please do not use the App. That being said, I have a couple of other Apps developed which are downloaded and trusted by couple of 100,000+ users (point in case - Energy Bar), none of the Apps have any hidden motive.
