Unhappy Likebook Mars: no ALT+TAB/Recent App List

So it seems like the ALT+TAB (on BT keyboards) or Recent App List (on UI) doesn't work on the Mars.

Did you find how to re-enable it ? Or a work-around ?

One workaround I think if (sort of) is to have an app like Button Savior but which can also show buttons for some predefined apps. This way one can quickly switch between the most used apps.
It won't help with actually using ALT+TAB from keyboard, will not be showing the actual most recent apps, but it would make it quick enough to switch between a handful of apps.
Anybody know a good app as such ?

Yes, I noticed the problem once I got the device. Found it interesting most people here didn't seem to bothered about it. More concerning was that I also pointed the seller on aliexpress to it - I think it was sold directly by boyue - but they didn't seem to care much either. To me that's an almost comical restriction, as this is a basic android function that they seem to have disabled.

I'm currently using an app that lists the recent apps as a permanent notification. Works OK as a workaround, by I definitely think they should just switch on the regular alt+tab menu.
I can check tomorrow what the name of my workaround app is.

Can you please tell us the name of this app to get the recent app in the notifications as it is a quite frustrating issue

The one I'm using is called Recent Bar. I guess there are others, but it's always tricky to know what will work, considering that many apps would just be based on the in-built android recents menu, which Boyue have deactivated for unexplained reasons.

You can try Button Savior (non root).

Yes, at last! It also works with button savior now, and probably also with Alt+Tab. So far very happy with the update, makes the device much more comfortable to use, I think. Will have to watch battery life impact.
