Virtual Button Bar

Virtual Button Bar


*Now with unlimited colours*
*ROOT required for full functionality* Menu, Back and Search are rooted-only buttons - all others work on non-rooted devices.

Emulates hardware keys (Home, Menu, Back etc) and overlays them on the screen, on top of all applications. Single-swipe action (see video):
• Choose the number of buttons you want, position them
• Lock Screen animations including Gingerbread-style TV off (requires 2.2)
• Change button function (vol up/down, lock device, expand Notification Bar, Camera, Search)
• Alt-Tab functionality
• Change Button sizes and colour
• Adjustable Transparency
• Separate, independent configurations for portrait and landscape

A fully-featured but time-limited trial is available.

To uninstall: If you've enabled Device Administration for the lockscreen, you need to disable it before uninstalling. Uncheck the permission in-app or go to Settings -> Location and Security -> Select device administrators and uncheck Virtual Button Bar.

Recent changes:
V2.9.4:
• Added option to disable foreground service. Uncheck to dismiss the permanent notification in 4.3+ but have higher chance of app being closed at low memory

I've been using this app from the very beginning, pro version that it. Unfortunately, for some unknown reasons, it's been crashing constantly on all my devices, namely, Note3, One plus One and Moto G.

Need functioning menu button I killed my menu, home, and back buttons on my Galaxy Note 2 doing a screen replacement. I tried a couple of other soft key enablers that were good. I purchased this one because the others lacked a menu button, which is what I need most. So I was disappointed to find this menu button doesn't function. If the menu worked, it would easily be worth 5 stars. Without it, though, it's disappointing to pay for functionality others provide for free.
