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.

Very useful Great app. On the LG g3 the UI elements are extremely small due to the high resolution screen. Luckily it's a set-it-and-forget-it app, so that's not a huge deal.

Great idea This works well the first time I press the bluetooth button. But the second time I press it, and it just opens the results of the last Google voice search I did.

It's Ugly and it Works. This app does exactly what I needed; no more, no less.. The UI is old and the text is tiny because it doesn't scale well on my Nexus 4. I don't care: 5 stars. It allows me to remap the one function on my Motorola Buds that I wanted to map to Google Now without messing with other button mappings, needing crazy permissions, accessing my contact list, or costing me money. Thank you.
