Version 1.0.13 is live! The app should update automatically, but if you want to make sure- you can visit the Pressy page on Google play, rate us (if you haven't had the chance until now), and check out the current version.
So what’s new?
- Show and hide the notification screen with Pressy.
- Use Pressy as a home button to go to the home screen with a selected pattern.
- Added WhatsApp to the Connected Apps section, open your favorite WhatsApp contact instantly with Pressy.
- Various bug fixes.
By now all the Pressys should have gotten to you, backers. In case you have not gotten yours yet, please send us a message to email@example.com and we'll check what went wrong.
One of our greatest efforts these days is adapting the Pressy app to as many Android devices as possible. One of the key factors in this process is getting information from the ground. For this, we need your help. We've compiled a short survey to get feedback from you backers. It takes only a couple of minutes to answer, and would greatly help us to improve the app and spot problematic devices. We'd really appreciate your help, thanks!

That is all for now, have a great week!
Hi All, a new version of the app was released today (version 1.0.11). This version addresses a few bugs and has a cool new feature built into it.
- Fixed a bug where some Samsung users could not use the speaker-phone while Pressy was inserted.
- The earphones icon will no longer be displayed when Pressy is inserted (on all devices).
- Few issues with Bluetooth speakers and headphones are resolved.
- Fixed a bug where notifications volume was changed on some devices when Pressy was inserted.
- No email account found - users who get this error message during activation will now be able to input their email address manually.
More triggers - from now on you will be able to use 5 additional triggers to a total of 14 different triggers. There's a catch though, as the extra 5 ones will only be available if you choose the "slow" response time mode. That's not cause we're mean, it's a technical issue that prevents us from using those while maintaining faster response times.
App Shortcuts - The "Run App" category now includes Android App Shortcuts. App Shortcuts is a secret feature built into the Android OS that lets you perform many tasks quickly, such as browsing a selected folder on the phone, start playing a music playlist, open a blank message to a selected contact and so on...definitely worth checking this out since it adds interesting new uses to Pressy.
Thanks, and have a good day!
The Pressy Team.
Greetings, updates ahead:
We have completed sending all the rewards to the backers two weeks ago. Don’t be alarmed if yours hasn't arrived yet! Our records show that roughly 70% of our backers have received their Pressy as of now, so you haven't been left behind.
Partial deliveries - There was an error in our database that caused the Lover’s deal add-on to arrive in two separate batches instead of one. The backers who chose that add-on will get the original pledge first, and the add-on should arrive about a week and a half later. We’re really sorry for this delay.
Another apology - For a similar reason, all those who chose the Kickstarter edition Pressy as an add-on will also get it in a separate delivery. Since we ran out of stock for those, we sent out Gold edition Pressy as a replacement, once the batch of Greens will be ready we’ll send them to you as well.
Besides those two add-ons all deliveries should arrive in one go.
Please inform us if you think something is missing from your package.
As we've previously mentioned, the app needs to be activated using the code found inside the packaging. If you are using the same email address for your Kickstarter account and your Goolge account your app will be activated automatically.
Motorolla "Touchless Control"
Touchless Control interferes with the long press event of Pressy, this is why owners of Moto-X and a few other devices who use it could not install Pressy without disabling it.
We have modified the app to work also without disabling Touchless Control, but those who choose not to disable it will only have short-press triggers for now. We are working to find a solution for Pressy and touchless control to work simultaneously and once we find a solution we will publish it.
S-Voice and Google Now
Some Samsung devices will have conflicts between Pressy’s long press and S-Voice or Google Search. Those devices will need to have those services disabled in order to enable long presses. Whether you will have to disable those services or not depends on the software version of your phone and not your device model. If you are asked to disable Google Search please try updating it through the Play Store, as it sometimes solves this issue.
An update to the Pressy app was published yesterday (version 1.0.9). The major changes are:
Setting Pressy as default is not mandatory. You will only be asked to set Pressy as the default long press handler if you choose to activate long press triggers. This will allow those who do not wish to disable S-Voice or Touchless Control use the Pressy app.
- Added option to toggle vibrate mode.
- HTC M7/M8 phones would call last dialed number or show an error message for certain triggers, this bug is fixed. If you keep experiencing this issue please check the app version, and if it’s up to date please report the bug to us.
- Sound being muted sometimes when removing Pressy while listening to music.
