All the capability of our standard XK-24 with special features for Android integration.
Our most popular X-keys. The XK-24 offers twenty-four programmable keys to trigger macros, shortcuts, and applications, select tools or open files or directories.
With a co-injected case equally suitable for handheld or desktop applications, the XK-24 provides a versatile control box for any computer-driven application.
Use key blockers and tall or wide keycaps to instantly customize the XK-24 for your specific requirements.
Detachable feet give the XK-24 a slight angle to make the key legends easier to read.
Repositioning keys and feet allow the XK-24 to assume a "landscape" orientation with four rows and six columns.

Mobile Developer Resources
Use our X-keys Android app to set up all keys on the X-keys as game controller buttons with values 17 and higher. This prevents them from conflicting with keyboard, mouse, or game controller input from other input devices. Then incorporate a dispatchKeyEvent to "read" these buttons. This is easy on Android and, unlike Windows, you get the sending device so you know it is an X-keys sending the button event. See the free code samples: PIGameController and PIJoyKeys.
Read and/or write X-keys USB HID data reports directly. This method will allow the developer complete control over the indicator and backlighting LEDs. See X-keys SDK for Android for free code samples for detecting and reading/writing the state of all controls and indicators.
