Major Update: BixBye is now the only App to perform actions without launching Bixby itself (invisible to your slow, naked eyes!)
Hi everyone! After some private testing with some kind XDA members, introducing BixBye.
BixBye, lets you remap the Bixby button even after the Samsung patch, I have noticed more such Apps popping up. However, I have got some feedback that this one is a bit snappy. Let me know how is your experience.
As it goes without saying, the App is highly experimental and is in Alpha Stage, things may not work as you expect to. However, your feedback will definitely help me improve the App.
For this initial release there is some limited amount of options available, more will be added if the App works well for you guys.
Download from Google Play Store. (Please don't forget to leave a review at Google Play Store!)
BixBye in action:
UPDATE/NOTE: From the reports I have received so far, what I understand is that, Bixby itself is a bit inconsistent in its behaviour when the physical Bixby button is pressed. Sometimes it takes a single press to launch and at other times a double press or long press.
BixBye relies on Bixby to function. Once Bixby is in memory, you will notice that BixBye functions quite fast.
It's very likely that Samsung will issue more updates to improve the snappiness of Bixby itself, as a side effect BixBye will become even more snappy. So, updates from here on will be win-win for us.
Thank you @bstapley, @yaddam205 and @xPr0metheus for helping me test the App.
Thank you @theherkman, @xPr0metheus and @apoapostolov who have especially helped me do countless tests to optimize BixBye for Lockscreen! A lot of patience and time, much appreciated!
