Great app but... This app does what it says it will do, you CAN make your home button double tap launch Google voice search instead of s-voice. The people having problems need to remember that they also have to go into settings and disable s-voice for this app to work consistently. Now on to the problem. The app creates a lag time of half a second to almost 5 seconds to get you to your home screen when you press the home button. Half a second, no big deal, 5 seconds, not acceptable. Fix that and you have a 5 star app.
modify camera launch on xperia z line Great!! i could set my camera button to launch a 3rd party camera app on an xperia z3c. And yet it doesnt interfere with the camerabuttons focus and shot functionality in any camera app. that's exactly what I needed. Would you be so kind to release just the camera button mod as a seperate app? It would be a great benefit to all xperia z users.
Really helps Saw this on All About Android and installed it. LOVE IT! With an older phone it gave more functionality that at least didn't make my version of Android seem so old. Now that I have a newer phone with more current version of Android I found I still missed the convenience of this app. Definitely a winner.
Doesn't work with CM Launcher I've used this app for years but had to uninstall today. It simply doesn't work with CM Launcher. Each time I'd press the home button, I was prompted to choose a launcher. I chose Home2, but I still got prompted every time. It's useless now. :(
Does what its supposed to do... But poorly. I have a droid turbo running 4.4.4 and the shortcut works but every time I press my home key I see my multitask menu for a second. I understand this is the app waiting to recognize a second home key press, but it wasn't always doing this. An official release of this app would be nice. If I get a reply I might donate.
Does what it says once you get it working The instructions aren't entirely clear - for Galaxy S3 you do not need to disable the entire S Voice app. What you need to do is disable the home key activation in its settings. Then everything works. If you just disable S Voice, then Home2 Shortcut fails to launch apps. Now everything works great.
-Add (Long press of camera key > App)
Protect home button & volume button, access all setting quickly, speed booster.
