Player Compatibility List:
Any Music app that supports “Headset Controls” such as these:
PowerAmp Menu -> More -> Settings -> Headset -> Respond to Headset Buttons
Samsung Music Player (Galaxy S2 and Note.. not Galaxy S, Y, Ace)
MixZing Menu -> Settings -> Headset and Buttons -> Enable Headset Controls
doubleTwist Settings -> Player Settings -> Use headset controls
Winamp Menu -> Control Headset
Samsung FM Radio
.. and more!
Easy to use, just wave your hand over the sensor (usually located just next to the earpiece on your phone).
Holding it there (hover) – Pause/Resume
One wave across – Next Song
Two waves across – Previous Song
Three times – Enable/Disable the controls
*Be sure to enable Headset Button Control in your player of choice
Tip for the hover gesture: if you move your hand away too quickly it’ll register a wave
After an action, there is a 1 second delay before another gesture will be registered
Practice your wave techniques by checking the “Last Action”
If you’re getting another player responding to the commands, use the Set Target Media App setting
The sensor WILL behave differently on different phones. I don’t have the resources to test every phone. If there is a problem, please email me at [email protected] and give me a chance to figure it out before leaving a bad review!
*HTC EVO 4G (erratic sensor reading cause commands to trigger on their own)
Wake Lock: So it will work when the screen is off on some phones
Read Phone State: So it can switch modes when phone is ringing or in-call
