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.

Works great To quote Benjamin Rosas's accurate review: On a nexus 5 android 4.4 select Google Search > com.Google.android.googlequicksearchbox.VoiceSearchActivity to make your Bluetooth button launch the voice search as if you'd said 'OK Google'. The best part is that you can do this when your phone is off or in another app. This app looks terrible, especially on a high-res screen with small font, but does just what I was hoping.

Doesn't work with Samsung HM1100 headset Love love love this idea, but unfortunately, it doesn't work with my Samsung HM1100 headset. I will have to try other headsets and update my review, accordingly. Still, the author is up-front about the fact that it might not work, and I'm not going to give a 1-star review because my hardware doesn't work with it.

Really small text, weird squiggle blocking most of the text. The only app of its kind but completely useless because you can't see anything. There's a weird white squiggle blocking most of the exceptionally small text. I would appeal to the author to update this app because it is badly needed.
