I like it better than Soft Keys for my Nook Color.
would like to use only the back button. why not make the small show/hide button for 'back'? big enuff
very useful, I stopped using the keypad. saved power
Was excellent for a day in my xperia. Now it doesn't work anymore. Unistalling :-(
Absolute must have for device has hardware buttons but not touch buttons. No more worrying hardware buttons wear and tear, sweet!
Had to unistall, disable admin, reinstall then uninstall again. To get it off my phone dx
Have Pandigital Novel. I downgraded to version 5 due to not needed option button with camera. I agree with nook request for customize those "extras"
I would buy pro key if there were a light theme for dark wallpapers. Impossible to see trigger button. Otherwise, this is a great little app.
Best app on market love it
usefull!!! add position on top and bottom make it best... thanks....
