Keyboard/Button Mapper


What can be remapped?
ONLY HARDWARE buttons can be remapped.

There is NO GUARANTEE any of these buttons will work and this app isn't
designed to control games. Your device's OEM/vendor can prevent them from being

* Volume buttons.
* Navigation buttons.
* Bluetooth/wired keyboards and mice connected to your device.
* Buttons on other connected devices should also work.

You can combine multiple keys to form a "trigger" and have as many triggers as
you want for each action. You can make a key map only work on a long press as
well and to vibrate as well.

What can’t be remapped?
* Pixel Active Edge
* OnePlus Alert Slider
* Power button
* Bixby button

Your key maps don't work if the screen is OFF.

What can I remap my keys to do?
Some actions will only work on rooted devices and specific Android versions.

* Open an app
* Open an app shortcut. This feature is very useful since you can tell another
app to do something Key Mapper can’t. E.g If your launcher has a shortcut to
open the app drawer, you can select that shortcut in this app and make any
button open the app drawer.

The Key Mapper keyboard needs to be selected for these to work and you can’t
use a soft keyboard at the same time:
* Input a specific keycode
* Input a key
* Insert a block of text

More will be added. If you have any ideas, leave a comment or email the
developer. 😃

What other things can the app do?
* Option to show a persistent notification which can pause/resume your keymaps.
It can also open the accessibility settings on the device to enable/disable the
service. Rooted devices can start/stop the accessibility service without going
into settings and just tap the notification.
* Automatically change the keyboard to the Key Mapper one and/or show the
keyboard picker when a chosen Bluetooth device is connected and switch back to
the old one when it is disconnected.

You don't have to grant all the permissions for the app to work. The app will
tell you if a permission needs to be granted for a feature to work.

* Accessibility Service: Basic requirement for remapping to work. It is needed
so the app can listen to and block keyevents.
* Device Admin: To turn the screen off when using the action to turn off the
* Modify System Settings: To change the brightness and rotation settings.
* Camera: To control the flashlight.

On some devices, enabling the accessibility service will disable "enhanced data
