After trying several remappers, this one seems unique in its ability to entirely disable volume key actions by the system. The app's been 100% reliable for months. I use short & long presses to run Tasker tasks. I bought the combo-key upgrade for screenshots, which don't require special permission. On the downside, the combo boxes in the settings dialogs should be replaced with separate, full screen menu dialogs.

Thank you for the detailed feedback! And yeah, the UI restructuring is definitely required... Hopefully, later this year
I was looking for something that would disable long presses for volume up and volume down so that the clamp mount I was using to hold my phone wouldn't change the volume. I was excited to see Button Remapper as it appeared to be designed to do exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, this app does not appear to work at all on Google Pixel 4 XL. After installing and granting all required permissions, I was still unable to get the app to do anything at all; the volume buttons continued to just control volume instead of performing any of the other available functions. I installed a different app (Button Mapper) which works as intended.

It can never detect when the settings are already on. In accessibility you turn It on and give it permissions. Fine. But then you go back to the app and the services enabled switch still isn't switched. When it works, it works fantastic. The best remapping app I've ever used. However, this is an issue that's been plaguing me all day and honestly I'm getting sick of having to deal with it. Would have been 5 stars if they could get their app together and actually work not on a whim.
