    Wow. That just seems unnecessary for something that should be easier to implement on there software itself. I see people getting in this though.

    I was reading today that ios 9 actually adds a button in the top left that functions like the Android back button.

    The explanation of how this works is pretty impressive.

    From their website;

    " Use Your Device with Greater Ease
    ClearTouch SmartButtons' touch sense technology adds invisible return and confirm buttons either side of the device's home button, making it easy to operate your device with one hand or on the move. These buttons use built-in, invisible circuitry to connect the space between the bottom left of your screen and the top left (the usual on-screen placement of the back button), and the bottom right and top right of the screen (the usual on-screen placement of the confirm button). Simply apply touch to the bottom left and right of your screen to operate the buttons above!

    No Additional Drivers or Apps Needed
    Everything you need to use the ClearTouch SmartButtons is contained within the screen itself. There is no need to install any additional software on your device. "
