Virtual buttons to replace the originals


Rate this App

Although by default Android places the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen, for whatever reason you might find yourself needing it in a different part of the screen. Maybe you just feel like a change, or perhaps you cracked your device screen and disabled the area of the touch sensors or even broke the virtual buttons. Simple Control is the ideal solution to these problems.

The app gives you complete control down to the last detail of the small virtual panel. By default, it stays hidden until you slide your finger over the surface, which you can fully control in terms of location and sensitivity. Likewise, the size, shape, and behavior of the buttons are completely customizable as well.

You can configure separate settings in Simple Control for when the screen is vertical or horizontal, in addition to adjusting the transparency, the fade-out for when it hides itself when not in use, and the icons for each of the bar's actions.

To help make your life easier, we've put together a list of apps that let you access most functions on your device without needing to use both hands or wrangling yourself into a sprained wrist.

Simple Control is the solution for your smartphone's cracked screen

We all know about the dramas that can be inflamed by a broken smartphone screen. Although in many cases the damage is more to the ego, as the problem is simply cosmetic, if your phone has taken a severe enough thwacking the layer with the touch sensors can break and even shards of the screen be lost. Due purely to gravity, the base of the device tends to take the most knocks, making the bottom buttons, whether virtual or physical, most prone to getting messed up. Luckily, there's Simple Control, a useful app to squeeze a bit more life out of a broken phone by adding a pop-out button bar anywhere on your screen.
