Coming soon: Customise your Galaxy Nexus navigation buttons [Video]

Chances are that part of the reason you picked Android over other popular mobile Operating Systems was due to the huge amount of customisation available straight out of the box. Another huge benefit of the Android OS is the enormous and talented developer community who always strive to make the wonderful OS experience ever better. Combine the two together and what do you get? Well the sky is the limit, but the video below should serve as an appetizer.

The talented AOKP developer, Zaphod-Beblebrox, is working on a new AOKP addition that will allow the user to completely customize the Galaxy Nexus‘ on-screen navigation buttons. Bored of the standard back, home and multi-task buttons? Why not replace them with a browser or SMS short-cut?

This is one that we will certainly be watching with interest as the possibilities really are endless. Check out the work in progress in the video after the break and stay tuned as we keep you updated on when this mod gets added to the AOKP ROM!

About the Author: Chris Stewart

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

    I couldn’t agree more because I myself chose android over other popular mobile Operating Systems is because of the customization capabilities.
