    I'm curious if you can map physical buttons to firing up an app. For example pressing the volume up button while the phone is asleep etc.

    I've not heard of anyone doing that, though I suspect it would involve a lot of work. Interesting though

    I have not tried this myself, but here's an app that claims to do that...

    Here's a direct quote from the description of the app...
    "Remap buttons to launch any app, shortcut or custom action with a single, double press or long press."
