The beauty of owning an Android device is the level of customization you can perform, and the never ending supply of mods. Today we bring you another useful mod you can do to your Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Fingertouch app lets you use the Fingerprint Sensor on your Galaxy S7 as a capacitive home button, what this means is you don’t have to press it physically to use it as a home button, just touch it like you would do to register your finger print.

There will be persistent notification in your status bar which you can use to start and stop the app whenever you want, for example if you want to make a payment and need the home button to work like a fingerprint scanner.

In case you hate persistent notifications you can disable it by holding you finger on the notification; notification setting will be opened and you can disable it. The notification will be hidden but the app will still be running in the background.

You need to be running Android Nougat (7.0) or higher, and Fingertouch app works only on Touchwiz roms as it uses Samsung SDK. The app has been reported working on other Samsung devices as well so feel free to try it on other Samsung devices with a fingerprint scanner as well.
