Touchscreens seem to have banished most physical keys on phones and tablets, but if you’re missing the buttons on your phone, check out the Pressy project that will give you back some buttons, but only on Android, at least for now.
Pressy is a hardware button that plugs into your headphone jack and it can trigger a number of customizable functions. This could mean a shortcut to directly snap a photo and upload it to your favorite social network. This is done thanks to the free Pressy app, which will allow a number of shortcuts to be created. If you’re using your headphone jack, you can use a small key chain housing. A button on your headphones then doubles as a the Pressy key.
Pressy was launched as part of a Kickstarter crowdfunding project. You’ll have to pledge $17 to get yours. With 45 days of funding left, they’ve already amassed over $180,000 in funding, so it will definitely be made.
