Looks like that currently Android applications are not able to use the volume rocker for their own purposes.

Steps to reproduce

  1. install FBReader from the Yandex store or elsewhere
  2. launch FBReader
  3. check that a book is open (the manual that is opened automatically on first start should do)
  4. go to Settings -> Page turning and check that Turn page with volume keys is enabled
  5. press the volume up or down key

Actual result

pressing the volume rocker only changes Sailfish system volume

Expected result

pressing the volume rocker turns pages in FBReader

Doesn't look like native applications able to do this either. E.g. native FBreader isn't capable of intercepting volume rocker keys even when set.
