QuickClick lets you assign handy shortcuts to volume key sequences


Don’t you wish your Android’s volume keys could do more than just adjust volume? With QuickClick from Blor, they can. This unique app lets you assign key press sequences to a whole bunch of handy actions, such as launching apps, toggling your flashlight, or even making a call.

QuickClick doesn’t take away the regular functionality of your volume keys — you can still use them to adjust volume during a call or when listening to music — but it does make them a great deal more useful by programming them to launch different actions or as app shortcuts.

And to ensure QuickClick doesn’t get in the way of volume adjustment, it uses key press sequences — not just individual clicks.

For example, pressing the volume up button twice, then the volume down button once, could launch your camera, start a voice recording, call a loved one, or toggle your Flashlight. QuickClick can even work with Tasker to trigger certain tasks, so the possibilities are almost endless.

QuickClick is a free download from Google Play, and it works on devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above. Unlike some button modifications tweaks, you do not need to be rooted to use it.
