This is NOT an official app from LG Electronics. Key Plus has been developed by AppTuners for selected range of LG phones.
AppTuners part of our zteTools and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Update for ZTE phones May 15, 2016. ZTE rating is 84.7954. Verison is 1.20. Actual size 1.0 KB.
Nothing else is such a must-install app I went from an iPod Touch and clamshell phone to the G3. I was used to having "instant light" from either of my other gadgets, but getting the G3 lamp turned on was a pain. I tried a number of other flashlight apps, but they all required the G3 screen to wake first. Not so with Key Plus for LG! Now I can get up at 4am and get through the darkened house freely, avoiding furniture and waking my wife! It worked perfectly from the get-go on my AT&T LG G3 under both Android 4.x and now on 5.x. If I could wish for more, I'd like to see the Vol down button restored for use, but I think that's an LG issue and not something KeyPlus can address. For what it does, it does 100%. KeyPlus rocks. Nothing else is as much of a must-install app.
Excellent app, but slight lag. Thankz to this app, my phone is now much more functional. I set the volume uo button to open the built in flashlight app. While it worked perfectly, I found there to be a slight lag. The flashlight took a tiny bit too long to turn on. Other than that, it's amazing!
Thank you Thank you! Finally made my phone work perfectly just the way I would like it to ????
FINALLY! I have a rooted G3. I'm very happy that this has been created. I've been waiting for too long! Thank you!
Finally! I've been looking for a solution for non rooted users and I've finally found it. First app review ever. Great work.
It works for android 5.0! Have been waiting for this for too long! Nice, volume up working for g2 with 5.0 installed
Not working at all on LG G2 I have LG G2 no root, stock Android. This app does not show up as described in the tutorial after a long key press. No matter what I select to run, UP always starts Notes, and DOWN always starts the Camera. Giving it permissions to manipulate the lock screen makes no difference.
Thank u so much!! Finally my volume up will be in a good use *flash light*
Awesome The built in flashlight is perfect for quick on and off without waking up your screen. Some restrictions with screen lock on other apps but not this apps fault. Highly recommend! Using on LG G3.
Does not work on G4 This application does not work on the T-Mobile USA LG G4.
Does not work with QuickCircle case It does not work with the QuickCircle cover closed.
Little problem with Camera Widget Answer: it is exactly what i did the first time and what i just did, the flash works properly but if i run the Camera Widget from the lockscreen, the built in flash appears, probably because when i flagged Always on Key Plus, the telephone recognize it with the old settings, when the volume down was linked to camera. Still need help
Trevor I've wanted volume up to be a flashlight ever since I flashed lollipop and lost lg tweaksbox. This app made the dream real.
Works on only Vol down key It doesnt work for both keys on my LG G2, only vol down key. I can not configure vol up key. However giving 5 stars because what i wanted has been accomplished. I wanted quick flashlight function which I have set on vol down key. For me thats all I need...
Its sorta works On the G2 the configuration part dident work for me even though i had followed what it said
Useful app I am loving this app as I am using LG G3.
Love it Ive always wanted an option like this from lg but it never happened. While scouring the internet, I found this on the android forums and downloaded it immediately. It works flawlessly and would recommend to anyone! Only thing I wish it would have an option for rooted users to access the flashlight directly instead of opening the camera and then turning on the flash
EDIT: Works Like a Charm Works perfectly, tons of options. Unfortunately it doesn't work with the LG G3 quick circle case. Would be awesome if it could!
Seems cool Doesn't work with Nova Launcher... Bummer
It works... But I have a quick circle case and it won't function unless the case is open. Quick-circle case compatibility would be sweet.
Must-install I didn't realize how much I wanted this until I found it.
Finally the perfect flashlight app Works great, now i can turn on my flashlight with the volume up key.
Instant flashlight! If this app just reassigned the volume up to the flashlight I would be happy, but it does so much more!
Very handy!! Thanks for this neat solution!
Does what it says it does.
Perfect! Finally a way to make the volume up shortcut useful.
Dissent work and will now not let me uninstall.
Awesome app keep it up !!!
Love it Actually works
Awesome It works fine, thank for your work
Working as intended.
Should have been included already This app fixes a big problem - LG should have left users customize the volume keys when screen is off, and now you can. I love having the flashlight as a quick toggle.
Great idea. But didn't work for me App cannot ask for volume key default access. I allowed access to flashlight and followed the tutorial
Half-good It's a good alternative for customize your device, but for me just works for Vol up button, vol down it always open default camera app. I can't change it for another apk!
Stopped working after Lollipop update Worked great and as described until I updated my G3 to lollipop. It's weird how little apps like this make a huge difference and I'm sad to say it has stopped working
Perfect! Set to open a specific remote in unified remote! This is why we buy android! Just had to click 'always' to change default action on G4 when triggered. A+ development (as long as the app isn't really a trick to mine my data). Added value to a great device. Picking up LG's dropped ball. Thanks
Love it Cool, awesome, very useful. I can change volume up shortcut key to launch my preference app: "Silence! Mute it with a click" by Christian Graf. Now i can change interruption mode on my LG G4 (Lollipop 5.1) even when screen off. Wish lists: it would be great if can also use volume down key, also if can change from double tap volume key to long press to activate.
Great app This is exactly what every LG owner needs to install. I love being able to hold down a hardware button from a locked screen and activate voice search directly. I'd pay for a version that has root access to speed it up.
App works like a gem! Def a must have until root is found because Quick Memo is stupid lol I use it to have the flashlight/Google search just a double-tap away!
Doesn't work yet on LG g PRO 2 Close but doesn't work on LG G PRO 2 (5.9 phablet version) which was released mostly in Korea Taiwan and the rest of asia I have tried it, i have the D838 international version. promising app. most phones suffer from not having enough triggers in my opinion. thanks for trying, hope you get there
Works great Finally have my torch shortcut back instead of the useless memo one! Thanks for the awesome work dev
Amazing! Fantastic Devs! No shady ads is also a major plus. Really impressed you don't need root for this, I had this similar feature as an xpossed mod but after updating to lolipop I cannot even root. Thanks!
Wonderful Great app! Thanks a billion! I got rid of useless quick memo, and replaced it with flashlight!
This is now a must have app to continue my love affair with all things LG G Series phones! Being able to launch the flashlight using the volume up button is incredibly useful. LG G4 H811 T-Mobile Brown Leather
On LG G4 AT&T Works! Remember to unlock screen and give permissions on first use.
Choose your own apps for volume buttons Great if you don't use the default apps of the volume rockers.
Neat, but oddly limited I had to put a second choice app because it seemed to have a limit to the amount that would list. Stopped at the 'm' s and I wanted an app that started with a 'p'
Solved my pain of not being able to change volume up application launch.
GG devs Great work on the app. 5 stars!
Good but awkward I don't see why I have to open my quick circle case for my light to come on. So I have to open the case a little then hold down the button.
Great app..does exactly as advertised This app saves my looking for my tv remote with a simple double click.
Add support for 5.0 and above for key down function@if possibe thank u
Awesome Now the flashing is two button clicks away ?
Awesome. Physical Flashlight button again finally!
Worked on my G4, once I followed the instructions and selected Key Plus as the default action for handling the double volume up click. Everybody should give this guy a buck once this works for them.
Must have for all G3 owners Use it for the torch personally
Works as intended. Must have for G4 owners!
does what it advertises. great way to get a quick flashlight button and no root required!
Works exactly as it should on my G4. Thanks! :)
Very handy! Simple customisation for the volume keys when the phone is off. I swapped out Quick memo for the flashlight on my G3.
LG G2 D800 OptimusPro V4.5 Volume Down button can change, Volume Up button doesn't change
Excellent app! It really is.
Excellent A must have for LG users. Works fine on G2 and G3s
Thanks for creating this great app! It works perfectly on the G4!
Fantastic I wanted a flashlight that I could use with the phone locked and screen off. This is fabulous. Thank you devs!
So awesome Being able to change button shortcuts are awesome! Mapped it to launch Google now voice search!
Awesome app for LG G3 Was trying to find a way to change the short cut keys from just the default camera and quick memo and this one does it perfectly
Works as advertised on G4 :) Just read the quick tutorial and don't uninstall Quick Memo before you set this up - you can always reinstall it if you already uninstalled.
Cool App Just what LG G3 needed!
Stopped working on LG G3. Still works on G2
Not any more It does not work after update on my lg g4. Shortcut key is also on. I still have to unlock the screen to see my assign app.
Use to love it Had this nifty little app for my LG G3, but recently switched to the LG V10. Now, it's deemed useless as I configure it to launch my camera but does absolutely nothing.. Had to uninstall...wish it would work for my LG V10..
Best for lg g3 Really great app dude... Although lg g3 came up with many inbuilt apps.... This is wat we specially need it... Keep inovating team my wishes to u...
Doesn't work on LG G4 with Marshmallow This used to work well on the LG G4 running Lollipop, but it doesn't work anymore with the Marshmallow update I got today. Also, when it used to work, there's a long delay before flashlight turns on.
Shortcut key on LG V10. Using the app to control the shortcut key for double clicking the volume up key. It now turns on the flashlight instead of the memo+ app. Just what I wanted! But I can confirm another comment: if you activate the light with the screen on, and then turn off the screen, the program crashes if you try to use the shortcut key.
Tip G3 I had quick memo Frozen, had to defrost to get custom setting to work. Thx for the app donation sent
Y Used to work but now after uninstalling it the screen will not pop up asking me to choose keyplus instead of quick memo.
Partly works. Cannot set volume up, quick memo always launches. Vol down can be set, but only if 'none' or 'swipe' is set for lock screen - All other forms of lock screen makes it not work.
Love it but I have to pick keyplus as default Everytime I do the shortcut on my g4 I have to pick keyplus as the app even though I put it to be default. Is it because I clear cache?
Flashlight does(n't) work (anymore) Flashlight doesn't work anymore since latest update UPDATE: I got it working again by deleting this app and reinstalling it. Then/than (I don't know sorry) I redownloaded the quickmemo+ app from the updating center and followed this apps installation guide and it worked again.
Changes the Capture function of the home touch button Works great for lg g4 5.1, but configuring the volume up function will also change the Capture function of the home touch button in 6.0 marshmallow
Here's one to figure out... So... I have my quick button set to open Google voice search... Which I love.. Thanks for making that possible... But it seems that the shortcut has attached itself to the quick note shortcut... Cause in my second screen, I have the quick note icon... But every time I tap it, it opens Google voice :P
I'm sure it would be great... It does not work on the lg g flex... It never gives the option to set the app to default.
Lg g flex 2 Works flawlessly changed vol up to turn on flash light and off works without any issues 10 out of 10
That app that makes you remember why you don't want an iPhone. It's apps like these that make the Android user experience so genuinely sublime. A simple concept that improves quality of life by a significant margin. Would pay for this app.
Worked with unlocked international LG4. Not rooted. First time it didn't work because there was a pop-up dialog that required me to choose the default action: this app or the quick memo. Once I selected a choice it started working.
So, for the LG G4, it's an app that makes one button customizable and requires total authority in your phone... No thanks. *edit* I gave 2 stars originally, but one of the Devs for the app wrote me an email. So +1 for customer service I guess.
Love it, on minor bug though Absolutely love this. However, one thing is preventing me from giving it 5 stars. On my G4 (unrooted, 6.0) activating the flashlight via double tap cancels out Smart Unlock if it's active (ie, I have to unlock with my normal passcode) for that unlock only.
LG G4 Does exactly what I wanted it to. Changed the volume up double-tap from memo to flashlight. Beautiful.
Great Great app. Works flawless on G2 as instructed with quick tutorial. New update has camera has hardcoded to down key but up key is to your choosing.
Wasn't working, but does now. Deactivated my quick camera option and could not get flashlight to work. Update: This works if you make sure to double tap up key. But to set it you need to double tap, then unlock your phone and set it to use the app permanently.
Thank You!!! Was trying to figure out how to toggle the flashlight without using Xposed. This solved it perfectly. Thanks!
Best Tool for LG G4 I'm not sure why this isn't a built in feature but really nice job.
Quick, easy, wonderful. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. I may donate just because it works so well without gimmicks.
Useless It turns off the screen whenever I press the volume up button for the 2nd time to turn off the flash light.
Close but..... The app works but not very well. I chose to have my flashlight launch with this app. The problem I find is that the first time you go to use the app it takes what seems like forever to turn the light on. (about 4 seconds) On the bright side it does work relatively quickly after the initial launch.
Not working at all for me Volume up had no function what so ever while app was installed. User priviledges activated, not even memo app would run with a double tap let alone anything else. Infact up volume button no longer activates with app unistalled. Running G4 H815. Please advise of solutions, I'd love this app if working
Just what I was looking for! There have been a couple times I wished I had a shortcut key for the torch. Glad I found this app, works great on my G3. Tried it on my sons Leon and works just as well, although on the Leon the screen flashes for a second when light comes on. No biggie; add the Leon to your list of devices! ☺
Should've been built in by LG, if they weren't busy pimping their own bloat.
Excellent!!! It does what it says it will do...I wish I would have found this app a while ago...
Great idea but does not work for Volume Up on my G2 (UK Vodafone stock OS).
Enables me to have torch on double tap up on LG G4 MM. Recommended
It Works !! But need Improvements It works as intended on lg g2(I know its not supported yet) but the down volume is greyed out (down volume shortcut still works on g2 lollipop) also would be great if there is an option to skip tracks while screen is off . until then I will rate this 4 stars and the last one when it become perfect !! YOU CAN DO IT :)
Doesn't work. Holding the up button does not bring up the configuration window. Does the phone need to be rooted?
Works as it should. Provides a fast and convenient way to modify the use of the volume rocker on the G4!
something I missing? Launches selected app, but I have to unlock the screen before I can use it. g3 lollipop
Simple yet useful Works on my g4. Only wanted the not-so-useful qmemo to other functionality.
Lg g4 Works as described. Could use the flashlight way more often than a memo - i like that I can do this without root access.
Doesn't work anymore Doesn't work on my LG G3 Marshmallow... Can you fix it?
down kay not work. lg g flex 2 android 5.1.1
Works great on G5 Working great on my g5. Haven't noticed any battery drain or loss at all. I wish we could see some more functionality and vol - key support.
A must have for LG phone owners. This should have been a built-in feature. I'm glad someone found a way to implement it without root. Most people don't really use quickmemo, so something like a flashlight shortcut (which is available) is very welcome. Thankfully also works with the LG G2 mini running lollipop (not sure about those still on KitKat). Very handy app. Use this with is SwipeUp Utility, which does the same thing but with the swipe up thing that usually launches Google Now.
For LG G4 marshmallow user Go to Setting > general > apps > Quickmemo+ > open by default > clear defaults .. Don't forget to setting your key+ flash, set up the app for default shortcut, don't choose quickmemo+ for default app. Problem solved
Good app... Does the job for the function that was supposed to be built-in feature of LG Homescreen. I would also like to ask dev to increase the options possible.
Not working anymore I upgraded my G4 to Marshmallow and this app doesn't work anymore, i used to love it, please fix this!
Perfect app! It works in Marshmallow, you just need to be sure that you have QuickMemo app from LG Update Center installed.
Close but..... The app works but not very well. I chose to have my flashlight launch with this app. The problem I find is that the first time you go to use the app it takes what seems like forever to turn the light on. (about 4 seconds) On the bright side it does work relatively quickly after the initial launch. It also seems to be to be controlled by the proximity sensor on the phone. It won't toggle the flashlight if I double click while it's in my pocket.
Half works... The volume up shortcut works, but it's a shame the volume down shortcut doesn't work any more. However, I'm not going to change the volume down shortcut anyway (which launches the camera app).
UPDATE: App now scans clean with Norton. Thanks to the developer for such a quick response. Updating to 5-stars now. ==> Norton flagged this app as dangerous. Said malware included and advised to uninstall... So I did. In response to developers comment, I reinstalled the app and norton mobile security grabbed it right away stating it has malware. Give it a try for yourself. I did use this app for a long while then I got antivirus for my phone. I am concerned with the Antivirus flagging this app. Maybe you should contact Norton and discuss why your app is being flagged as malware and see if they can verify it.
Volume up doesn't work on G2 I'm running stock kit Kat on G2 D800, and volume down works (but I don't want to change that) but volume up just keeps opening the quick note app. This app worked on G3 but isn't working on G2.
Works Use this only for a flashlight button and it works. But only when phone is switched off. When phone is on pressing the volume just changes the volume
Good but could be improved ..... The app works but could be improved. I chose to have my flashlight launch with this app. When you double click the volume up button it doesn't react instantly. It's about a 2-3 second delay before the light comes on. On the bright side it does work relatively quickly after the initial launch. It also seems to be to be controlled by the proximity sensor on the phone. It won't toggle the flashlight if I double click while it's in my pocket.
Extra functionality = Good But FC's occasionally on my G4 on Android 6
Not working Not working. No popup comes up when i keep pressing volume up button phone viberates and i turn on screen
Won't work for me Can't get it to work for me.
Volume down If volume down had this too i will give 5 stars
Great app simple interface and very reliable work every time
Doesn't work on Marshmallow
Fantastic. New update (1.20) fixes a minor marshmallow compatibility issue. Thanks for the update! Works as described.
A must for LG's phones Double tapping upper volume buttons now turns on flashlight, rather than opening notepad
Never downlod it Do not work
Flashlight Works well. It just keeps the fingerprint scanner from working for some reason. I have to turn the flashlight on amd turn my screen on then tap the notification to turn the flashlight off in order to use my password.
Is there anyway to not have to unlock my phone to use the desired app? Like with the built in double-tap volume down, it opens straight to the default camera, and you only have to unlock your phone if you close the camera. Can we get this functionality here?
The app works as advertised on an LG G4 H818p, Android v6.0. I will give you 5 stars and a 20 EUR donation if you implement one additional feature: Add an option for the Volume Up key to set the Screen Brightness to 100%, and it should work even in the Lock Screen (just like the Flashlight option). I need this because I usually keep my phone at 40 % brightness when I'm indoors and then I often find myself outside, in bright sun light, and I can't enter the Lock Screen PIN correctly or see who is calling me. Also I don't like automatic brightness apps, they're too unpredictable. Thank you!
Help It used to unlock my phone (Marshmallow) completely with two taps. Now I have to double tap and then press power... it's just irritating
Expected to get full control Because my LG G3's OS is Android 6.0, I can only define the action of the volume up button, but not also the volume down button.
Works great Make sure you don't uninstall quick memo.or it won't work
Volume down You should make it available for the new versions
Great Great even though volume though can't be changed. Gives the extra functions LG didn't.
Working great on my v10. Would be neat if if could be configured for more functions. Such as other functions for 3 or 4 taps.
Works whit lg Spirit , Magna , Bello , Leon .. ... -⭐ becouse is a litlle slow app ... But nice work team ...
Works great! LG G5 is the bomb!
Nice Thank you so much for this
Not working on G4 (Got a new G4 and will not work. Following post was when using with G3)This is so awesome! Thank you for all the hard work you've put into building and maintaining this app. Everyone that's downloaded this app should donate to the dev. He/She/They could easily be charging for this but chooses not too.
Almost perfect This app does almost everything I want. If the "volumeup" activity is set to enable/disable the flashlight, that activity will turn the screen off after disabling the flashlight when called from a launcher shortcut. I wanted to use the flashlight from a launcher shortcut and not have the need for two flashlight apps. That's only a minor issue though. Thanks for the great app.
Having Trouble!!! I followed configuration exactly as stated. I selected the torch for my volume up shortcut and my camera for volume down. No matter how many times I try to configure the settings my LG G2 seems stuck on opening quick memo which I don't have a need for.
Must have app! I've recently got an LG G4 so I'm slowly adjusting to LG's software etc... one of the things I wished for was a shortcut to the flashlight and originally I thought the notification shortcut was the only was, until I came across this thread! Awesome app, worked first time on Marshmallow and I have a pattern lock too. Thanks!
Essential for any G4 owner Although I gave it a 5 star review, the app is officially no longer working after the marshmallow update and after quickMemo+ was renamed to QuickCapture+. I'm begging the developer to update this app because I really miss it.
Stopped working Worked fine, now won't work at all. Tried uninstalling and re-installing, no joy. Leaving installed because I hope this bug will be fixed soon. Was great when it worked.
LG G4 works as expected It's nice to be able to change the volume UP shortcut to whatever I want. Seeing as I never use quick memo, it was kinda a waste but I set the volume UP shortcut to open Spotify and it works without any problems. There isn't an option to configure the volume DOWN key in my version of Android, but that isn't a problem due to the fact that I wouldn't have changed it anyway.
