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.

Does what it says Reconfigured my bluetooth phone button to open google now. The font is like size 1 but I found the command in the list and it works. Well done.

Intermittent Only worked intermittently, and only when the phone was unlocked which made it useless for my purpose.

Nice I wanted to use my google voice search app with my Bluetooth headset, but it doesn't have an option to be used when I hold the button on my headset. With this app I was able to do so by holding the action button on my headset, taking me right to the voice search

Text is so small, the app is useless... The font size in the app looks to be about 4 pt, and the submenus are even smaller. I'd love to be able to use this, but it's just not possible. I'm running a Nexus 5 with kitkat 4.4.4
