    Works fine on my old Samsung Tab 7 thats only being used for as an entertainment remote. The home key no longer works and this app fixes that handicap. I did however end up paying twice. I didnt have a payment method setup on the tablet so I thought I could purchase it from my phone as long as I was logged into the same google account thay was on my tablet. Well that used to work but now had to purchase seperate per device. Guess google changed purchases from account to per device.

  2. Bernard Ingram-avatar

    Excellent application. The free version has minimal ads and does not interfere with your phone use at all. I was so impressed that I had to upgrade to the pro version which cost little. Extremely happy because my navigation buttons stopped working. The pro version has many additional features that makes it more useful than my old buttons.

  3. Michael Boucher-avatar

    Michael Boucher


    Love the app that came handy when my own navigation bar stopped working. However this app closes sometimes when I'm in certain apps and can get out of them due to the fact that my regular navigation bar is not working and I have to reset the phone. I thought that when paying for the pro would solve the problem of the app not closing but I was wrong. Is there a way to have this app open all the time in any app? If not then I wasted money to have my original problem fixed.

  4. Marsha Adams-avatar

    The app is good , but it won't give permission for other app, I have to keep shutting my phone off uninstall this app, then turn my phone on in order to give the other apps permission then installed the app again in order to use it. It really annoying. Can the developer fix this problem please.

  5. Gurdeep Singh-avatar

    When you are installing new app in mobile it asks for permissions and this app doesnot allow to give permissions for smoothly workin of the other apps as it always show message "screen overlay " detected this is major problem so we have to diasble the app and then lock the app then switch off the phone to restart the device then it starts working . This part is so annoying

  6. Toxic Cane-avatar

    Its perfect, I love how you can make it look so perfect and how it fits, and looks like its supposed to be there, I love how theres different button styles u can use and watch a few ads here and there but it's free!

  7. Sss Mmm-avatar

    Much much better than other apps of same category. No annoying ads. Plus good options, like hide when on-screen keyboard comes up. It is so good, I might even buy the pro version after a few days of use. :)

  8. Julian Cortes-avatar

    The app is awesome. Great customization options for free. I mainly use it to lock my screen and change the volume to avoid using the buttons and breaking them. My only gripe is that whenever I lock my screen using the nav bar, I'm unable to unlock it using face unlock. I have to manually enter a pin or use a pattern to unlock it since it is locked by an admin technically. Idk if there is a work around for that but if anybody knows, please let me know. Besides that, this app is legit.

  9. Rami Kashani-avatar

    Setting a button to launch the voice command will start Google assistant, but the microphone will not pick up any audio. Doesn't work correctly.

  10. Armin Ibrahemovic-avatar

    Armin Ibrahemovic


    Although very good app, but it closes automatically after a period of inactivity. This is a serious bug

  11. Larnyz-avatar

    My phone broke and the return button wasn't working so I downloaded this app to see if it worked (I was going crazy) and it did. Is so helpful and have many customization options!

  12. mitch ash-avatar

    Great app. I like how you can customize the color of the icons in the tool bar. I would rate it a 5 if it had the ability to completely replace the old tool bar instead of just temporarily covering it.

  13. Far 2 Paid-avatar

    Everything is fine till I reboot or unlock my phone. I must reenable it again and again. And it's hard when your nav button broken

  14. HORNY CATS-avatar

    The app does what it says, it's good, but here is the thing. When im using the middle button to lock the phone it does lock. But when i try to unlock it with biometric fingerprint the phone doesn't let me unlock, the only way to get in is to actually write the PIN code and it its not very pleasant and as fast if i could unlock my phone as usual with my fingerprint when i had lock it with the up right button.

  15. Naveen Kumar M-avatar

    Really nice experience with your app. I was not able to use my mobile due to navigation problem.

  16. C Mitchell-avatar

    Thank You! After many years using tablets with on-screen buttons, upgraded to Samsung Galaxy with physical Home button and too much time wasted tapping around for visually nonexistent Recent and Back. (Who thought THAT was an efficient design?) Love your customization options and finally have buttons where they are both accessible and easy to see.

  17. John Combs-avatar

    Youre app has saved me when my screen got cracked, the only thing that makes this app suck is the whole " ohh you can slide up to get the bar to come back up" and that doesn't work which is annoying cause then i have to restart my phone and mess with the setting again which is happening right now so thanks i was gonna give you four stars, but since the navigation bar just went away which means im gonna have to restart my phone yet again imma give you three

  18. Tomislav Kos-avatar

    App works great. My home button and back button didn't work and this app solves it. Easy to use, just activate it in accesibility options and it overrides the default navigation bar. Thank you.

  19. ben ne-avatar

    Lock full screen mode in 'Lock The Bar' function doesn't work if the phone display resolution is 1560x720. It works fine in 2340x1080.

  20. Awakened Soul-avatar

    This navigation bar is a life saver as my original navigation bar was malfunctioning due a bug on my Android phone. After installing this app, facing no such glitches.

  21. Sumanth Reddy Bogala-avatar

    This app is good but when I remove recent apps the application was gone and I have to re-enable it. This is the drawback of this app. Overall,it's performance is good...

  22. Awais Alvi-avatar

    Good app solved my problem.. But the only issue I'm facing is that the bar keeps on disappearing after some time. I adjusted the settings.. Didn't close the app from the background but it isn't working. But still its a good tool. I hope developers will look into this issue

  23. Ranjana Pande-avatar

    It was awesome at first! But of late, it has kept on disappearing even though i have set the settings to always lock the bar. It was working perfectly till a couple of months ago. Had absolutely no problem but now it just grates on my nerves.

  24. Akash Shukla-avatar

    Worst app,at starting it works fine but after few months it automatically stop working amd sometimes it works and then agaim stops,it just irritates me.

  25. Adam Hirsch-avatar

    I've tried all the most popular similar apps and this the only one that works. Please make the icons individually resizeable. When you mix and match some of the icons they look disproportionate. It would also be cool if the bar showed the phone battery or you could use custom pictures as the icons or bar.

  26. My Word-avatar

    I like this app very much. I was very alarmed when my back button suddenly collapsed. I couldn't imagine what I would do then. Then this application came in handy for me. This app is very good, anyone whose problem it is he can download it.

  27. Kelvin Chan-avatar

    This was the only app that provided a solution to swapping the back button to the right side after upgrading to Android 10. Thanks.

  28. Marabu Toani-avatar

    Nice app, it's very useful when your phone have problem with the navigation bar. I really enjoyed in using this app

  29. Raine Cloud-avatar

    My navigation bar has recently failed, and I clicked the "pending updates" notification or whatever it is called to get here and downloaded this. Thank you so much! If I encounter any problems I most likely wont update lmao, since I wouldn't really be able to navigate back to here for a long time.

  30. Matt Man-avatar

    The app works nicely except that the hide feature doesn't work. I set the nav bar to auto-hide after 5, 7, 10 seconds, whatever... It doesn't hide. That's my only complaint.

    It worked for the first time i installed it and later i didnt know wat went wrong,it couldn't work on my phone again

    The navigation bar vanishes after clearing memory of the phone then I have to go to the app for starting it again. That's so hectic.

  33. Blashyrkh Rave-avatar

    Awesome works fine on my TV box . I don't know why did they decided that system bar is not useful in new TV boxes. You helped me much, thanks a lot.

  34. Cristian-avatar

    On the old Galaxy Tab4 10.1 inch bar the bar should be adjusted so that it does not cover the corners because here are the 2 commands (File Manager and Applications) and when I try to press them, the navigation bar is activated and I can no longer access those 2 orders. I hope I got it right.

  35. Jacques Marineau-avatar

    Jacques Marineau


    Loving it! Simple, elegant, to the point. Sure others may have more fancy stuff but free version here does what you need. Hint: in free version, set Autohide to 1s to avoid keyboard bottom row overlap issues 😁

  36. Ion B-avatar

    Works great for my Abox. Very happy with this application! Thank you guys.

    It's a good app but there's a strange glitch where the navigation bar disappears and when I go on the app and turn it off and on again but it doesn't come back and I have to delete and re instal the app to get it back

  45. matthew johns-avatar

    Stupid app switches the position of buttons... meanwhile, it has a "transparency setting" but is completely worthless because this app is really just an overlay that eats your battery life and has lots of ads.

  46. Masood Ahmad-avatar

    After 2 or 3 days it's automatically turned off. Fix this problem please.
