Here’s how to customize the navigation buttons on your Android device (Video)

Android is renowned for its vast customization options. Quite literally, if there is an aspect of the UI that you’re not fond of, with a little elbow grease and some know-how, you can change or even sometimes remove that specific element and replace it with someone else’s mod (or even your own, if you’re that advanced).

You can try out new ROMs, keyboards, launchers, themes, and completely personalize your software from top to bottom. But one of the least customizable aspects of Android to date is the standard set of soft (or on-screen) navigation buttons. The easiest way to customize them used to be through flashing a different ROM. But with SoftKeyZ, customizing the navigation buttons has been made much more simple.

Be sure to check out the video below for a quick run-through of SoftKeyZ!
