To get your button up and running you will have to install an app that runs in the backgroud of your phone. When the button is pressed the app excecutes the action you have choosen for it. You can even select a different actions for how you press the button.

Some programmable actions are.

  • Take instant photo or video.
  • Start voice recording.
  • Change phone settings.
  • Turn on your phones flash light.
  • Check in to your favorite social media.
  • Record a phone call.

As an example you could set you phone to call your wife with two short clicks and turn on the flash light with one long click.
