A few months ago we told you guys about Pressy, a small hardware button that fits into your device’s 3.5mm headphone jack that can perform certain actions based on the button presses you input.

For instance, three quick clicks, can initiate a call, while one long click could turn WiFi on and off. While we’re all waiting for that neat idea to ship, another one has popped up… and you don’t even need to buy a third-party dongle.

QuickClick is the same concept, except it uses your device’s volume buttons to receive commands. It doesn’t differentiate between long and short clicks like Pressy, but you can use a combination of clicks from both volume up and volume down to throw together a ton of different unique actions.

Clicks can be configured to do a large number of things. Here’s a quick list to get you started:

  • Take a photo or a video
  • Toggle flashlight on and off
  • Record an audio
  • Make a call
  • Start a message
  • Launch a Tasker task
  • Start any of your apps!

Each action also has its own set of configurations such as playing a sound when that action is triggered, play a vibration pattern, and more. It’s a nice alternative to Pressy, so be sure to check it out in the Google Play Store for free.
