Miss the date you can operate your mobile phone without having to deal with or look at the device when it was with keypad?

With the introduction of amazing Touchscreen and smartphone technology, even for a simple action like selfie, it can become a bit of a hassle.

What you need to do:

Exit your current running app -> Dig into apps icons to search for the app you want to use -> Launch it -> And finally, perform your desired Action.  

This “simple” process requires 4-6 different actions and takes more than 5 seconds! Additionally, you must keep your eye on your screen throughout the entire process.

Using a smart phone should be, well, smart! Instead we have to dig through our phones to find your favorite apps? With Air Button you can easily control your phone the way it should be, with a smart, simple and tactile button.

Which devices can Air Button work with?

We have tested Air Button with most qualified devices and all works perfectly, as long as it runs Android 4.0 or above, and contains NFC antenna with it. However, it doesn’t work with HTC One M series, as the location of NFC Antenna is surround the camera and you will need to cover your camera by Air Button.

Can I use Air Button with phone case?

You can attach Air Button on your phone cases and it works well, unless the case is made of metal.

Where can I stick Air Button on?

For most smartphones and tablets, sticking Air Button on the rear side works well. 

How many times can I reposition my Air Button?

You can reposition it to optimize your user experience and comfortability. According to test under laboratory condition, Air Button retains its adhesion for over 10 times of reposition, depending on the factors like: using condition, surfaces you stick it with, dustiness of your surfaces, etc. It will eventually deplete and detach from the surface of your devices. Now, we keep searching on materials and design to make it re-attachable for more times.

How many Air Button can I have for one device?

As many as you can. You can cover the rear side of your devices by Air Button(s), and create a keyboard for a touch-screen smartphones as you wish.

Air Button is battery-less so you don’t need to worry about battery life. Besides, as a tactile button, what you worry most is probably the durability to clicks.

For its adhesion, Air Button will adhere on your devices until you purchase a new one if you follow the instruction above.

How much battery does the NFC connection consume?

Turning NFC on for a day will only drain not more than 0.5% power consumption which is not noticed any difference in battery life in daily use! It is worth every penny to own Air Button, isn’t it?

Does Air Button work during off-screen? 

Currently, due to security concerns, this functionality is disabled in Android. For the time being, to work with Air Button during off-screen, you have to root your device and then install a NFC Mod. But we are not subjected to any responsibility of damage of your devices after rooting.

Will Air Button be triggered accidentally?

You should worry about the lock button and the volume button of your devices first. The feature of NFC button is that it has to be triggered by at least 0.5 sec of pressing the button which prevent it for unintentional control.
