One-handed phone operation: It’s not always easy to reach the Back button with your thumb.

One-handed phone operation: It’s not always easy to reach the Back button with your thumb. I nearly dropped my phone on a few occasions… App Cloner 1.4.12 will allow you to add a floating Back button to your cloned apps that you can position anywhere you like.

You can set the button’s size, color and opacity and also make it trigger a double back tap (some apps require you to press Back twice to exit).

Also, the floating Back button can be made context-aware. You can configure the button to remember its position depending on what screen (1) you are on inside an app. Or you could hide the button entirely on specific screens by long-pressing it (2).

You can find this new option under Display options.

No accessibility services or system overlays are used for this.

(1) Some apps use a single screen (activity) and swap views inside this screen. The context-awareness won’t work for these apps.

(2) If you have accidentally permanently hidden the button you can re-clone the app using ‘None’ as long-press action. This will clear the hidden button memory when the clone is started.
