Bluetooth Launch

Bluetooth Launch


Allows you to pick an activity to launch on when you use the Bluetooth button on most headsets.

This is no frills (some even call it ugly) but still works nicely. (Cut me some slack, I wrote it in 2 days, using standard UI elements from FroYo. That said, I see no reason to update it unless I'm really fixing something.)

Simply select the application to see a list of activities. Then pick the activity you want launched. For example:
Google Search
com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox.VoiceSearchActivity

That's it. Connect your headset, hit the button and you're good to go.

Notes:
Not all headsets work correctly. Some have odd behavior and do not follow the standard. I own only a couple of headsets and test to those.
Not all activities work correctly either. It is simply not possible for me to download and test every activity for every app. You are responsible for figuring out what works and what doesn't.

Realistically, Phone-Only Try using this app on a Nexus 7. The text is nearly microscopic and all the icons overlap. It's difficult to select anything, even with a stylus. Worse yet, this app used to do something. Meaning, certain things I selected actually functioned when I used the headset call button. Now, no matter what I select, I always get the message"voice calling not supported".

Worked like a champ It worked great for me. It solved an annoying problem I've been struggling with. How to reliably open Google Now from my bluetooth button so I can use it as my voice dialer and more. This is going to be really handy with my bluetooth motorcycle helmet. Thanks Bob. :-) The font was tiny on my screen though, good thing my eyes are good. But judging from the screen shots tiny font is not always the case. I hope he does some more development on this, it's got great potential. (side note: Why does Google's voice dialer suck so much but Google Now works perfectly as a voice dialer? And why does Android not have this apps ability baked right in?)

Awesome app, need larger text Worked perfectly to get Google now voice actions tied to my headset (lg g3, hbs-800). If you could update with larger text size it would be great. I had to use display output to my TV, like others mentioned, and the right side of the first level text lines appears garbled.
