Thank you again!
Thank you again!
Sorry that I missed this. Other people have reported this issue on some devices but I have never been able to reproduce this. Does the latest 2.3.0 release in the github repo fix this?@sds100 Is there any way to log/check why the app fails after some time despite satisfying all requirements (Accessibility, Keymapper keyboard etc)? I am using Huawei Tablet but have disabled battery optimisations as well as disabled auto-management by Huawei software but the app seems to be losing key captures.
I'm using Bluetooth keyboard and keymapper successfully changes the input method to Keymapper keyboard but doesn't capture keys.
Edit: It works after disabling and re-enabling Accessibility for Keymapper. But doing this every now and then this would defeat the whole purpose of using the app :/
Hi!Hello @sds100 ,
Thanks for this app first of all. I just got a new phone and decided to use this app instead of "button mapper" that I was using for my Xiaomi Mi 9. Because this app has the "vol up + vol down" combo.
Basically with my Mi 11, what I want to do is to press vol up + vol down and the flashlight turns on. Very convenient especially at night.
It works great, except when the screen is off, in which case I have to give it a tap so something gets displayed (usually the fingerprint graphic) and then the vol up and down works again.
I doubt the process gets killed, because it works everytime when something is displayed even when phone is locked. And if always on is enabled, then it always works.
Again thanks for this app !
Hi! I'm happy to hear that you like the app . It is always great to hear the cool ways people find to use this app.@sds100: Just want to thank you for developing this app! It is the first app that allowed me to do what I wanted to do on my device, and I tried a number of apps and approaches.
Recently, I bought a Nook Glowlight 4. That is an E-ink reader with a six inch display that runs Android 8.1. There's no obvious way to install apps, but with a little hunting, I found where such things as developer settings were hidden. That opened the door to ADB, which allowed me to install a launcher and a few apps, mainly reader apps.
The Nook has physical page-turn buttons. Well, I wanted to see if I could set things up so that those buttons would be functional on my third party reader apps. I rooted my device and tried a few options. Your app was the only one I found that allowed me to have a setup where the page-turn buttons would work on both the Nook stock reader and the third party apps! B&N did a few weird things with the way the Nook is set up, which makes finding your app all the better.
What did the trick for me specifically was the ability to have a physical button simulate a tap on the screen. That allowed me to use the physical buttons with apps that are not coded for use with physical buttons.
I haven't tried using buttons on a Bluetooth headset but I have tried using the buttons on a wired headset and it does work. Most buttons should work as long as they don't have a proprietary implementation in the Android skin you're using. E.g Bixby, Pixel Active Edge. XDA doesn't allow new members to put links in posts until they have posted 10 times for security reasons. Once I can, I will definitely put links in the description.
Update: I can add links on mobile completely fine. :laugh:I haven't tried using buttons on a Bluetooth headset but I have tried using the buttons on a wired headset and it does work.
