Hi guys! Welcome to Fixbudd Asia Blog! We discover something that is very useful to all Samsung S7 flat and S7 edge users! (Other smartphone owners can also try this one.)
We found out an app which turns the fingerprint sensor on Galaxy S7 Edge into a capacitive Home button, so that you don’t need to press the home button physically. Just touch it like a sensoric button.
Application service runs in foreground thus there is a persistent notification placed in the notification bar. You can quickly pause/disable the service from this notification or better use the Quick Settings custom tile. If you do not like the persistent notification, just hold you finger on the notification. Then the notification setting will be opened and you can disable it. 🙂
Don’t forget to register at least one fingeprint in system settings, otherwise the app may not work.
You can get in playstore for FREE! It has also a PRO version. The PRO includes app whitelist and long touch function. It has ability to disable itself automatically when fingerprint authorization is requested in other apps.
