    Hello guys, I was wondering if it would be possible to make an shortcut app that runs in the background to simulate a home, or back button press... Maybe with a two finger swipe or something. I have the Droid X, and the only thing I don't like is the hard buttons.

    +1 Would love this as well... I feel like the Back button will fall off in a couple months due to the number of times I have to hit it.

    Any updates on this? I can't stand the back button; like Phoenix Zero, I'm afraid my back button will break because of how much I use it!

    Just tried it out-it is pretty neat! Hard to get used to not using the hard keys tho

    Edit: it is neat, but I'm uninstalling. If they made the gesture area at the top instead of the bottom, it would be perfect, but as is, its right in the way of my spacebar. :(
