About this app

Button Mapper makes it easy to remap custom actions to your volume buttons and other hardware buttons. Remap buttons to launch any app, shortcut or custom action with a single, double press or long press.

Button Mapper can remap most physical or capacitive keys and buttons, such as volume buttons, some assist buttons, and capacitive home, back and recent apps keys. Button Mapper can also remap buttons on many gamepads, remotes and other peripheral devices.

Root is not required for most actions, however some require an adb command from a connected PC if not rooted. Button Mapper does not work when the screen is off unless your device is rooted or you run an adb command.

A few examples of remapping you can do with Button Mapper:
-long press to toggle your flashlight
-remap your TV remote control
-press to broadcast custom intents, scripts or commands
-long press to open camera and take a photo
-double tap to launch your favorite app or shortcut
-double tap to open your notifications
-swap your back and recent apps keys (capacitive buttons only!)
-use your volume buttons to adjust screen brightness
-long press to toggle "do not disturb" mode
-and much more

Additional features unlocked in the pro version:
-Simulate keycodes (requires adb command or root)
-Swap volume keys on orientation change
-Default to ring volume on Pie or later
-Pocket detection
-Change back and recents buttons
-Customization of haptic feedback (vibration) on button press and long press

-Launch any app or shortcut

-Broadcast intents (PRO)
-Run scripts (PRO)
-Camera shutter

Additional options:

-plus many more customizations

-Make sure Button Mapper accessibility service is enabled and allowed to run in the background
-Button Mapper does not work with onscreen buttons (such as soft keys or the navigation bar) or the power button.
-The options shown in the app depend on the buttons available on your phone. Not all phones have home, back and recents buttons!

This app uses Accessibility services. Accessibility is used to detect when the physical or capacitive buttons are pressed on your device so they can be remapped to custom actions to accommodate your needs. It is not used to see what you type. Button Mapper does not collect or share any of your personal information, it is safe and your privacy is respected.

This app uses the Device Administrator permission. (BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN)
This permission is used to lock the screen if the "Turn screen off" action is chosen. If you want to remove this permission, open Button Mapper, click on the menu (three dots in the upper right corner) and select "Uninstall"

Very useful app with loads of features. There is one feature that seems to be missing though. I have it installed on a Chromecast. The app doesn't seem to have the option to bind a button to restart blue tooth, only to toggle it on and off. But because the Chromecast remote is blue tooth, when its turned off the remote becomes unresponsive and can't be turned back on. Being able to restart blue tooth with a button would make solving blue tooth related audio issues much faster.

I am using this on my Sony Bravia X90J with the OEM remote and it is strait magic. I remapped the yellow, blue, red, green, and DVR buttons with short cuts to different streaming apps and my PLEX app where I have my DVR content stored. Love being able to have 3 options per mapped button INCLUDING the default action of the button!!! I do not think I will ever have to scroll through menus or apps for 90% of my TV use. Saves me time and frustration trying to find where the stupid setting or app is. One custom mapped remote to control all my media, pure awesomeness. Only thing it needs is a mouse function like mouse toggle... or maybe it has it and I just have not found it yet haha.

I installed and paid for the in app price of this to remap the Netflix button on my Nvidia Shield remote to the mute button. Since doing that two years ago it has only worked 10% of the time. It’s nice when it works but that is rare. The rest of the time when I try to mute my tv the Netflix app opens.This app rarely works, don’t waste your money on it.
