    first, welcome

    i have seen a few apps that make use of the hardware buttons to do something else (like Home++ can use the camera button to take screenshots), but i haven't seen an app specifically for reassigning keys..

    The apps name is a tough one to remember. It's called buttons. It's a freebie at the market. I haven't tried it but that's my understanding of what it's suppose to do.

    I'm using Button Shortcut as well. I've remapped the Camera Button to go to Visual Voicemail. I did the same thing on my old Storm 2.

    yeah i installed the app from social media but it would only let me use the camera button to open a program. i really need it to skip a track when listening to music. i had the omnia i900 windows mobile 6.1 and it let you assign almost every button a certain function and i set one button to the function "scroll right" and when my music player is open and can push that button and it goes to the next song, that was the best!

    Yes - assigning this to voice dialer or the phone application results in an error message which it says you can terminate or wait for the phone app. After about a 3-5 second delay, the phone app works just fine. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to quickly pull up the desired phone dialer or voice dialer without delay.

    Not sure if the app isn't working or Google has #$@#ed with the phone shoving Google things on every button that you don't need, including the camera.
