Assign functions to your phone’s Search key
Ever wish you could control your phone’s search key to do something more than search? Thanks to XDA member appelflap for releasing this great app called “LaunchKey”, which allows you to map a specific function to the long pressing action of the search key. This app will only work for devices that allow long press search functionality .
It allows you to map the press to:
- An App
- System Function
- Custom Menu
Those three options allow you to open and operate many functions of your phone. For example, you could map it to toggle WiFi or your 3G connection, which is much easier than using a widget.
We encourage you to go try out the app and leave your feedback for the developer in the discussion thread.

With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
