Android has the ability to setup accessibility services that can modify aspects of the system. I’m trying to use one that modifies the behavior of the home button.

But apparently Android just disables these accessibility services occasionally and you have to go back into settings to turn them back on. What?

That doesn’t seem very accessibility friendly to me.

I’ve switched to a different launcher on Android, which isn’t really a solution to the accessibility services issue, but at least I’ll have consistent home button behavior.

For anyone curious, I was trying to use Key Mapper to open Launchbox with a single home button press, the app switcher with a double press, and the Home Screen with a long press.
