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.

An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
