I would like to change the default behaviour of S Pen so that instead of using the (not so good) memo app from Samsung I can use the note taking app of my choice (right now Papyrus).

How can I change the default behaviour of double tapping the screen with the S Pen while holding its side button to open my app of choice?

I use the app Pentastic for that. https://galaxystore.samsung.com/detail/com.samsung.android.pentastic

I was actually looking for a way to disable this shortcut. This can be accomplished by combining the above with the app "Do Nothing". https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=i.donothing


Get "S Note Helper" from Google Play Store

    Would you mind to give some explanation how this answers the question? A link to the app would be fine, too.

  • There's no such app in the Play Store. Are you sure that's the name ? May 6, 2013 at 13:39
  • Might be he meant S Pen Helper. According to the screenshots, this can at least enable/disable launching the "default app". Not sure if it can configure the same -- I have no device to check with :)
