    Apologize ahead of time if this has already been answered. I know a few were asking if there was a way to utilize the space bar as an additional home button. If this has been answered/adressed feel free to delete.

    You can download the app titled "Buttons remapper (no root)" for free. Scroll through the list of buttons and look for 'Space' and long press program it to Home (short press will kill your space and typing experience) and voila. Long press will take you home!

    Hope this helps someone out!

    That will help me out. I use an iPhone 7 for my personal device and the KeyOne for my business. I'm constantly hitting the space bar thinking it will act as a home button. Thanks for the tip.

    Does mapping volume up to skip track work for you? Doesn't for me.

    I use a different app, which works great with skipping tracks with the volume buttons.

    Absolutely! The only issue I have received with this is that secure start up seems to conflict with the accessibility requirements of the app, so the system disables the app or secure startup.

    Will try different apps and report back, but more than likely no workaround.
