The Secret Android Button


What’s up guys? Lou here. Back with another video. and today I’m checking out, You know, something that Quite frankly I like. This of course, is the idea of adding buttons, physical buttons, to your smartphone. This is called Pressy, the almighty, Android button. Now I did a video a little while back about a different kind of button, I can’t even remember the name right now but I’ll link it in the description You can go check it out, It’s actually three buttons That use NFC and stick to the back of your device So that you can quickly launch into whatever you want with a physical button. This one takes a slightly different approach It goes into the headphone jack of your device. It uses the data portion of that port to trigger various things. Look at the packaging. Very straightforward here. But the promise Is so extravagant “Keep your Pressy safe” So there you go, they even thought about, when you’re not using the Pressy You just have this little adapter on your headphone cable that you put it in That’s it! That’s the little guy! Jack, look at that. Look, how cute is that? I don’t use that word cute often. But when I do its very important. That’s cute And then you pull out the button itself And that’s it! It’s like the end of your headphones without the headphones! Now there is an app. There you go, I put the code in Now take a look at that Jack, it’s ready to go. So, we’re activated, now practice clicking. Short press, two short presses, right? Three short presses, oh my goodness. Now its telling me to add an action. for example: tagging your flashlight, alright. Here we go. Give your action a name, choose a trigger, and go for one press, Okay. And then I’m done. By default is has three actions baked in including flashlight, launch camera and toggle mute. flashlight is one press, oh there we go! Woah! That just happened. It’s actually a satisfying little click there, as well. It does take a second, but there you have it. Now camera is a double tap. So let’s do a double tap real quick. Hmmm.. do you have to be… How fast do you have to be? You have to be pretty fast. It’s a quick double tap. Ooh we got flashlight that time. It’s a fast double tap like you have to get used to it. This is gonna be the toughest one a triple tap. Let’s see here… There you go, I got it now. I feel like I am getting a hang of it. You can see toggle mute up there, and then to get it off… I’m getting a phone call here, jeez. Hello? Hello?… To toggle sound Pressy requires access. I see. Okay I gotta’ give it access here. Okay let’s try this again. so, let’s say I’m watching a video, real quick. Okay, media is all the way up, so we are muted right now. Do the old tripple tap. Oh… That’s interesting, that’s pausing the video. So if I’m in Youtube, it’s got a different set of rules. it is gonna’ actually pause the video. What the hell is going on here? I can’t hear… Any Youtube right now. Oh, so you can hear that… You know why? Because it thinks that I have headphones plugged in. Wait a second. You can’t use your speakers?! That’s what happened with the phone call, it thought that I had a headset plugged in. Wait a second here… It’s like hacking the Play-Pause Button on your headphones. We can do a lot of cool stuff. Toggle a lot of cool stuff here. Lock the screen rotation, toggle your… your vibrator, your bluetooth. I’ma try unplugging, and (Noise from phone) Okay, audio is working. Pause it, plug this back in. Is that Pressy? Yeah, it’s Pressy! Pressy was pressed while being plugged in, please disconnect and connect it again. Without pressing it, holy, this thing is temperamental. Cool. Still no audio. Soundcloud… Nothing. Maybe there would be a setting for it to still out put audio via speakers, because for me, that’s kind of a deal breaker. I really feel a little bit half-baked
especially considering the other buttons that I used, again I cant remember the name… Dimple! im gonna link the video, go watch this video. That
stuff was seamless. Seamless and it didnt hijack your headphone jack… “Hijack”. Again
the whole, like, double triple press on this thing… Neh! Eh! I’m over it im over it! I’m over it. It’s cool to use the
headphone jack in that way, apreciate the ambition, but I think the
NFC buttons are actually the way to go. Go check that out. There you have it. There
are a lot of Lu’s, you’re seeing Lu, then reflected Lu, then monitor version of
Lu. It’s too much Lu.

    The essential function that needs a one-press trigger is to activate the voice recorder. The iPAQ Pocket PC used this feature, and it was great when driving. If I need to take note of something, I would like to press a button and then talk, without having to activate the phone, go through menus, and then talk.

    How completely and utterly stupid and useless! These are apps and such and you can control them but touching the screen on your phone, touching the screen when you're in an app or using the actual buttons on your phone. Just about the dumbest thing I've ever seen. How many millions did you make for Hocking this one?

    Stupid gimmick. You can toggle mute on an S8/S9 by simply holding the volume-down rocker. You can lauch the camera by double tapping the side power button. And flashlight, well, thats just a click and a swipe away so I think I'll just deal with that instead of having a friggin button at the bottom of my device

    The preview is misleading. It looked like a video about confusing the S-pen for some magical new button that nobody had discovered when, in reality, it's about another idiot that didn't realize it could be pulled out and used as a stylus.
    It would be the second time for that, but I prefer the broken headphone connector that you wiggle to activate stuff.

    You don't have to use Pressy to launch the Camera app on Samsung devices because double-tapping the home button will automatically toggle the Camera app.

    Something tells me that it probably has a function to let the phone know it's not headphones that are plugged in. What do you call the data that gives you directions? Oh yeah, directions, tutorials, manuals….Don't bother looking anything up, just assume instead.

    You have gained a very large audience that hangs on your every word. By not fully investigating something, you do a disservice to the consumer and the maker of the product. Don't get me wrong, I like most every video I see from you, but this time I think you dropped the ball. If "pressy" does cause a glitch, it's important to know, but it's also important to make sure that is in fact, the case.
